List of Ingredients
Crack the Fat-Loss Code: Outsmart Your Metabolism and Conquer the Diet Plateau starts with low carb intake so the body can get rid of its glycogen stores to increase the body’s ability to burn fat. For the second, third, and fourth weeks, the amount of carbs you eat is alternated so the body can keep burning fat and avoid going into starvation mode where it holds on to all fat. For the fifth and sixth week, you are in accelerated fat loss mode. For the seventh and eighth weeks, you will be in maintenance mode. The last four weeks will require you to eat anywhere from four to six smaller meals a day, with each meal containing some form of protein. There are some “cheat days” built into the program so you don’t have to feel like you are going without your favorite “off limit” foods. Going through a few of the eight week cycles enables you start eating foods that were off limits before. The book advocates both strength training and cardiovascular exercise starting in week two.
