DREAM YOUR SHAPE, SHAPE YOUR DREAM©

 

You could probably ask what is so special about this DIETcompared to all the other diets on the market. Well, numerous people have followed the guidelines in the following HEALTHY EATING PLAN, and managed to lose fat, gain muscle and save money. As mentioned, this is a plan for healthy eating based on the principles used by NATURAL bodybuilders and Fitness experts, to increase energy, build muscle and reduce fat. (Natural meaning without drugs or pills). We mentioned fat loss instead of weight loss and the fact that YOU can save money, because when YOU follow this plan and possibly do some form of exercise, even if it is just brisk walking, You can gain toned muscle while losing fat. Since muscle is 3 times heavier than fat a slight weight increase can occur, but this does not however mean an increase in your waist size because muscles only develop when intensely exercised, therefore any muscle if gently trained will only be toned, and therefore tight and small. Big muscles are only developed by:

     (A) Training intensely with progressively heavier weights

     and

      B) Eating enough protein.

Money can be saved because many healthy foods such as pasta, rice, bread etc., are cheap and can last a long time. Sauces can be made from vegetables and so tend to be inexpensive and can be easily frozen. Because food portions are measured out, the weekly food bill can be more economically budgeted. This plan can also be used for vegetarians.

The big difference between this eating plan and other diets, is that this is not a general diet. With this plan you are allowed a certain quantity of protein, carbohydrate and fat grams per day spread over four to six meals per day. The grams per day are calculated from the number of calories required per day. The amount of carbohydrate, protein and fat will depend on your lifestyle and self-discipline. The more active you are the more carbohydrate you will require and vice-versa. The same applies to protein with regard to physical stress. Fat is kept at ten to thirty percent depending on how easily you can avoid fatty foods.

Vegetables can be eaten freely as they are not a good source of carbohydrate but are important for vitamins, minerals and feeling well fed. Some fruits and other sugary foods (called simple carbohydrates), can cause blood sugar levels to rise and, if not immediately burned off, can cause a release of insulin which converts excess sugar to be stored as fat. Keep fruit portions to about 5 per day. Fatty foods should be reduced because they are burned off slowly and so tend to be the bodies third choice of fuel, and so tend to be stored as body fat.
