Diet plans come and go, but it really says something when a plan has staying power – that means it's working for people. The Carb Rotation Diet plan, created by Jason Hunter, falls into this category. Being a registered dietitian, Jason has the nutritional credentials to give dieters the kind of plan that works fast and effectively.
First off, he has divided the plan into two parts: one for men and one for women.
The female version is called: The Dramatic Dress Size Reduction Diet
The male version is called: Get Rid of My Gut Diet
This makes sense, because men and women tend to gain and hold weight in different parts of their body. Women mainly want to lose unwanted fat in their hips, thighs and waist, while men want to get rid of that belly fat that can blow up to huge proportions.
Because he's educated in nutrition, Jason spends some time in his book, teaching you about staying fit and healthy for the long term. I really think this is important information that constantly needs to be repeated, since, most people experience the disappointment of losing weight, then gaining it all back. It doesn't have to be that way if you learn how your body really works with food.
The Carb Rotation Diet involves going on a weekly meal plan that uses calorie cycling to achieve a desired weight loss. Every three days, you'll be shifting the amount of carbs, fats and proteins that you eat. Some days you'll be eating low carb meals, some days you'll be eating high carb meals, and other days you'll be eating meals with no carbs in them whatsoever.
Because there's a whole bunch of foods you can eat that fall under each cycle, you won't be starving for foods that fill you up. In fact, Jason believes that starving yourself to lose weight is a losing method. The body responds to starvation by holding onto calories – exactly the opposite effect you're trying to achieve.
You should avoid any diet that has you eating like a rabbit for several days in a row (cabbage soup diet for example), because you're going to burn out on it real fast, then you have a high possibility of returning to all your favorite fatty foods to make up for feeling hungry.
This diet is for people who can faithfully follow a detailed eating plan for 30 days, and who are ready to take their eating choices and nutritional health seriously. Calorie cycling is a proven weight loss method that works, and you can easily learn to do this at home.
