The Fat Loss 4 Idiots diet plan has been one of the most popular nutrition based weight loss programs online for over 3 years. What I mean by nutrition based is that the weight loss is achieved by following an eating plan. Physical activity plays very little part in this program, so it’s a viable option if you just don’t have the time to exercise, suffer from some injury, or just can’t workout regularly for some other reason.
The Calorie Shifting Diet Method
The Fat Loss 4 Idiots program is based on the calorie shifting eating method. Calorie Shifting is a method by which you avoid the metabolic slow down which occurs with many diet plans.
Metabolic slow down happens when you deprive your body of too much calories or provide it will too little of a certain nutrient. That’s why low-carb, low calorie, low fat, or any other of the low-something or no-something diets are likely to induce a metabolic slowdown.
When your body senses that it’s being deprived of a nutrient or enough calories it reacts by slowing down its calorie burn rate. This meas that it gets harder and harder for you to lose weight, until your weight loss stops.
Then, when you go off the diet, finally, your metabolism is so slow that you begin packing on the pounds that you lost and more.
This is one of the main reasons why 95% of diets fail.
Shifting Calories to ‘Fool’ the metabolism
When you shift your calories you basically ‘trick’ your metabolism into believing you’re not really dieting when you are.
This is done by constantly changing the amount and type of calories that you eat from one day to the next and from one meal to the next. It’s less about quantity and more about the type of calories you consume.
When you get the FatLoss4Idiots plan you get a menu generation software. You choose your favorite food items from a long list and the software generates a personal menu for you.
Each day has 4 meals so you don’t starve on this diet. You can change the menu at any time, choose different food variations and basically never get bored with what you eat.
Each menu is 11 days long. At the end of each 11 day cycle you get 3 “cheating days” in which you can basically eat whatever you want (in moderation). This is important physically and emotionally because it helps you to rest from the regular diet and to stick to it for a long time.
Does Fat Loss 4 Idiots Work?
I can say that the people I’ve spoken too have mostly been very pleased with it. I’ve spoken to people who have lost 30 pounds and more on this diet in a relatively short time and were absolutely in love with it.
It doesn’t work for everyone (nothing does) but it works for most of the people I’ve spoken to and I believe that you should be no different.
Lose 9 pounds in 11 Days
The website of FatLoss4Idiots says that you can lose 9 lbs in 11 days with this plan. As someone who has spoken with hundreds of users of the diet I can say that this may be true for some but not for all.
I place the average weight loss at around 5-7 lbs in 11 days, and there will be stronger cycles and slower ones.
But, as long as you continue to lose weight, you’re on the right track, so don’t get discouraged. I still recommend this plan.
Is it really that simple?
Some people wonder where FatLoss4Idiots got its name. The reason that it has this name is that it’s one of the simplest diets in the world. Certainly one of the easiest I’ve seen.
You get a menu to follow based on your food selection, an easy to read diet tips ebook, and you get to eat 4 meals each day. How could it be simpler?
There is really very little thinking involved in following Fat Loss 4 Idiots. You just need to go ahead and do it.
