The Virgin Diet Review
What You Should Know
The Virgin Diet is a book written by JJ Virgin. It is a plan that claims to help you lose seven pounds in seven days, just by cutting out seven foods from your diet. While this sounds very much like a fad diet, we are willing to take a closer look at it in this review so you can decide whether or not you want to give it a try to jump start your long term weight loss success. The book is scheduled to be released November 27, 2012.
List of Ingredients
The Virgin Diet is fairly simple. JJ Virgin is a health and fitness expert, with more than 25 years experience working with celebrities and other clients to help them improve their bodies. Her advice goes against the conventional wisdom of your body being like a “bank account” where you can cut carbs, calories, fats, and proteins, to see weight loss results over the long term. She says it is a chemistry, and as such, requires you to eliminate some of the conventional “diet” foods that many consider healthy, such as wheat bread, yogurt, and egg whites. She maintains these foods are part of what’s making you fat, and once you see those go, you can see real success. She provides a list of 10 anti-inflammatory and unhealthy foods to cut out of your diet, and provides a 21 day program, along with a list of 50 foods you should be eating plenty of. At the end of the 21 day program, you can try adding things like gluten and dairy back into your diet and see what happens. You should see a weight loss, along with a complete change in how your body looks and feels.
- The Virgin Diet is available for e-readers such as the Amazon Kindle.
- This program is written by a highly experienced health and fitness professional.
- The Virgin Diet is not yet available to the general public, so there are no customer reviews.
- This program, even though it only lasts 21 days, is highly restrictive and may be hard for some people to handle.
- Adding the eliminated foods back to your diet may cause rebound weight gain.
- Rapid weight loss, such as seven pounds in seven days, is not likely to be long term weight loss.
- It takes more than reading a book to lose weight.
The Virgin Diet could be a good way to see if the foods you are eating are contributing to not only your weight, but the way your body looks and feels. For instance, if you suspect food allergies or gluten intolerances, this program is a good way to see the difference between how you look and feel when gluten is in your diet, and when it is not. If you notice easier weight loss and better feelings without it, you may want to consider being tested for Celiac’s Disease.
