What You Need to Know
The Rotation Diet is a system that was created by Martin Kathan. He is the director of the Vanderbuilt University Weight Management Program. In this review we will take a look at this particular diet and try to use the information available to us to try and determine if this diet is one that may appeal to the general public.
The process of the Rotation Diet appears to be a very simple process. This is a system that is said to be used over a four week period. In the first three days of this diet you start with the lowest number of calories that is stated which is 600 calories for women and 1200 calories for men for each of these three days. Then you would increase your calorie intake to 900 calories for women and 1500 calories for men for the next four days. And the last set is done for a full week. The caloric intake that is stated for this period is 1200 for women and 1800 for men. After this cycle is completed you repeat the cycle once again. After the cycle is repeated it is said that you can return to your normal eating habits. The theory of how this is actually supposed to work is it is supposed to keep your metabolism balanced because of the “vacation” period that is allowed during the process.
- This diet appears as though it can be very affordable.
- Recipe tips appear to be included.
- It may actually be an effective weight loss system.
- This diet plan is considered to be out dated because of the fact that it is over 20 years old.
- When going over some of the consumer reviews a lot of negative feedback was found.
- Due to the low caloric intake some may consider this diet to be extreme and unhealthy.
- Must watch the diet carefully during the off weeks.
While some people may believe that this diet could be useful for losing weight, there still comes the argument of whether or not the diet is actually healthy. In fact recent studies may show that it is not even necessarily how much you eat, but it has to do more with what you eat instead. Most doctors would agree that cutting calories back that far is not a very good for the overall health of your body. Since this was developed over 20 years ago most of the information would be considered to be outdated anyway because of all of the advances and new research that have been done that reveals that you actually have to eat to lose weight. Furthermore, no suggested appetite suppressants were found during this review. It seems as though if a form of starvation was the expected task in order to achieve weight loss with this particular program, then it may be taken into consideration that an appetite suppressant would be a nice thing to have to curb those hunger pains that are to be well expected.
