Scientifically Proven Weight Loss Diet
PROVEN Study: This is THE #1 Weight Loss Diet Plan Explained in Detail:
Finally, there’s mounting evidence proving that there really is a ONE best way of dieting to lose weight.
The other great thing that this research study found was that this “style” of eating was the EASIEST way to maintain results as well.
Although my team and I have been using this nutritional plan for over 7 years with fantastic success with our online and studio clients it’s nice to now have evidence proving that it is the #1 plan for losing weight and keeping it off.
The research study looked at 5 different diet plans:
1. A low-protein diet (13% of energy consumed) with a high glycemic index (GI)
2. A low-protein, low-GI diet
3. A high-protein (25% of energy consumed), low-GI diet
4. A high-protein, high-GI diet
5. A control group which followed the current dietary recommendations without special instructions regarding glycemic index levels
(Research out of the University of Copenhagen, “Diets with High or Low Protein Content and Glycemic Index for Weight-Loss Maintenance.” New England Journal of Medicine, 2010)
Now out of all of those different styles of eating can you guess which diet plan helped people lose weight the fastest and keep the weight off?
If you chose the “high protein, low-GI diet” then you were right!
The average study participant lost 24.2 pounds in 8 weeks!
Basically, what that type of eating is comprised of is sticking with high protein sources (vegetarian based, meat, fish, etc.), some dairy and beans, nuts/seeds, and lots of vegetables. I would add in fruit as well if you live an active lifestyle and it your body can tolerate it (look for my previous article on fruit for a full explanation).
You may think that this diet plan sounds like the Atkins Diet, Paleo Diet, South Beach Diet, etc., etc., etc…
And, if you thought that… you’re also right.
However, some “Paleolithic based diets” like the Atkins don’t truly take into account the differences in the types of fat (and product quality) that you’re eating and that’s where the health concerns begin adding up.
If you’re getting your meat, fish, and dairy from non-organic sources you may be eating high levels of Omega-6’s versus Omega-3 fatty acids.
This one important ratio to keep in balance for your overall health and longevity.
So, now that we know (and have known) that this system of eating works best for weight loss, I want to leave you with a few tips to make it even healthier:
1. Only eat hormone free, grass fed beef
2. Use cage free, local/organic eggs
3. Choose only wild caught salmon and other non-GMO fish
4. Go with raw or no-hormone based dairy products
5. Eat lots of green and colorful vegetables at least 3 times per day
6. Stick with unrefined oils for good fats
Although I can’t go into every detail here today the point is that you will be healthier and maintain a healthy body weight if you stick with eating foods that are as close to their natural form as possible…
It’s really a shame that we have to go to a “Whole Foods” or other organic-type grocery food stores to find food products that aren’t full of hormones, antibiotics, chemicals, etc.
Remember, when it comes to what you put in your body you are what you eat…
I now it may cost a little bit more to eat this way, but I have no doubt it will save you money in the long run from doctor’s visits, sick days, and quality of life.
Lastly, although everyone’s nutrition program must be tailored to their own individual body constitution and needs, I have found that for anyone looking to lose weight this method works exceptionally well.
While I was writing this article today on healthy eating for weight loss one of my online Fatlossity users just emailed me this:
“I have already started the program and I’m happy to report that on day 5 I’ve already lost 4 pounds. I had subscribed to Stephen’s “free” info for a while and loved his common sense approach, so I paid the money to get the whole program…”
I hope my article today helped and for anyone struggling to lose weight and keep it off permanently I highly recommend you adopt this proven nutritional plan.
