What You Should Know
Dr. Sear’s High Speed Fat Loss in 7 Easy Steps is a book written by Dr. Al Sears. There is no official website for the book, that we could find, but there is a detailed description and various customer reviews on Amazon.com where the book sells for $25 to $30 in paperback. This is a huge price to pay for a paperback self-help book based on low carbohydrate eating. The difference between Dr. Sear’s High Speed Fat Loss in 7 East Steps and other low carb diets is the inclusion of low glycemic foods. Typically, low carb diets don’t allow fruits in the beginning stages, but this diet does allow fruits.
List of Ingredients
Low carbohydrate diet based on glycemic index and healthy fats.
There is very little detailed information available to the dieter on Dr. Sear’s High Speed Fat Loss in 7 Easy Steps. The plan is low carb and low glycemic, which will promote fat loss, but the specific details are unknown. The author claims dieters can lose up to 22 pounds of fat in the first month. This is true of any low carb diet, but it is not common. Dieters often lose 10 or more pounds in water weight, so the actual weight loss for the first month would be around 12 pounds. This averages out to 3 pounds a week, typical of low carb plans.
The addition of low glycemic foods may impact ketosis. Ketosis is the state in which the body burns fat for fuel instead of carbohydrates. Even though a food has a low glycemic load it may have higher than normal carbohydrate levels. Ketosis requires strict low carbohydrate eating for a minimum of one to two weeks. This is why the Induction phase of Atkins lasts two weeks. In some cases, people who have difficulty entering into ketosis must eliminate carbohydrates all together to achieve fat loss. Dr. Sear’s High Speed Fat Loss in 7 Easy Steps does not address low carb resistant dieters.
The price of the book is a bit of a concern. Most paperbacks sell for less than $10. This book continues to sell for $25 to $30. At this price, dieters may want to check local libraries or auction websites for a used copy. Dieters are required to read the text and put the tips into action to lose weight. This means the dieter must be dedicated to the plan.
- Low carb diets lead to weight loss.
- Too expensive for a paperback.
- May not force the body into ketosis.
Dr. Sear’s High Speed Fat Loss in 7 Easy Steps is another low carb plan that allows a few more foods. None of the concepts are new and most are based on ketosis and the body using fat for energy.
