The Weekend Diet

Can it be done?

Suppose today is Saturday.  It hasn’t even been a week since you started the weekend diet and your friends are already commenting on just how great you look.  Your face looks leaner, your body’s lighter, your tummies down, and your new smaller clothes fit perfectly, and you just look like a million bucks!  And their asking-what have you been doing?  Are you living at the gym eight hours a day?  Punishing yourself with unending reps and mindless cardio?  Or, do you starve yourself down to size by eating nothing but lettuce?  The answer to both of these questions is, of course, no.

Welcome to the weekend diet.  The absolute best way to looking your best, in a hurry, for that special event, whether it be an upcoming wedding, a hot date, a special reunion, an important business presentation, or an exciting vacation.  Whatever the event, the Weekend Diet is the answer you’ve been looking for.  This is your ticket to safe and dramatic weight loss in a hurry, without any special weight loss pill or exercise, in less than a week.  Does that sound too good to be true?  Well, it’s not, and here’s why.

How the Weekend Diet Works

The secret to the Weekend Diet is found in its DNA system: Dieter’s Nutritional Analysis, a system designed to pinpoint how your individual body metabolizes food.  We then take your DNA information and use it to lay out a nutritional program, to help cleanse and revitalize your body.  By eating specific foods, in the right quantities, and at the right times, while avoiding foods that cause you to gain weight, we are able to speed up your metabolism and flush excess water and toxins from stored in your body, thereby making weight loss automatic and effortless.

That sounds good to me!

Great, so let’s get started, there’s no time to waste.  We know you’re eager to look your absolute best for that special event.

One of the unique things of the Weekend Diet is that food, not exercise, is the key to making it work.  What this means is that you won’t be starving yourself thin for the next week, or punishing yourself at the gym.  In fact, you’ll likely be eating more than you ever have before, but this time you’ll be eating foods that will cause you to lose weight, not gain it.

Eating the right food is important, but so is when, and how often.  On this program you’ll be eating three solid meals:  breakfast, lunch and dinner, plus two to three snacks in between, all spaced out two to three hours apart.  This type of schedule prevents your body from worrying it might starve, which is what happens when you don’t consume enough food at the right times.  Eating smaller meals throughout the day is key to reprogramming your body to stop hoarding calories and instead, make them available to burn as energy.  With smaller meals, your body is better able to utilize vitamins, minerals, proteins and carbohydrates.  You’ll have much more energy throughout the day and you’ll be speeding up your metabolism.  Plus, you’ll have fewer cravings for junk food because you’re less likely to be hungry.

Once you start eating like this you’ll quickly be amazed at how your old cravings for junk food and sugary foods will wean away, and you’ll no longer feel like you don’t have control.  And this can be very empowering.  As you can see, this style of diet is different than most.  And it has to be, in order to get different, dramatic results.

Let’s take you step by step through your meal schedule during the Weekend Diet.  As mentioned, greens can really help you lose weight as they are great natural diuretics.  This means that they help to accelerate the flow of water out of your body, preventing you from retaining water and getting that bloated look.  Greens, including spinach, kale, lettuce, parsley, beet greens and watercress are all rich in the mineral potassium which prevents water retention by your body and encourages it to flush fluids and impurities from within.  Among the best greens for weight loss are cucumber and asparagus.  Cucumbers are nearly 95% water and will keep the body flushing fluid and feeling full.  Use them whenever you can, on the road or as a snack.  Asparagus is, by far, one of the best natural diuretic foods out there.  We suggest that you eat lots of it.  A serving or two a day minimum will do wonders.

In addition to being great weight loss agents, greens are better known for their many health promoting benefits.  They’re rich in vitamins, mineral, antioxidants and fiber.  Even though people don’t like to eat their greens, they are an important part of an effective, safe and healthy weight loss program, and to good health.  We encourage you to find ways to spice them up for the next week, using some of the techniques we’ve outlined, like lemon and herb spices, and fresh lemon or lime juice.  You can also use many healthy cooking methods, such as steaming to lightly cook vegetables like broccoli and kale.

We’re going to let you in on a little secret that many people who want to lose weight quickly don’t know about.  That is that protein can in many ways be considered a fat burning food because it helps to speed up your metabolism and just so happens to have the highest thermic effect of any food, meaning that the body uses up more energy, or calories, to digest and absorb protein over any other foods, such as fat and carbs.  In fact, your metabolic rate can be sped up considerably, by as much as 30%, simply by eating protein.  This means that for every 100 calories of protein food, like salmon and chicken breast, only 70 are left over after digesting and processing.  So for thinning out it’s important to eat the right kinds of high quality proteins at the right times each and every day while on the Weekend Diet.

We’re going to help you do this.  Here’s another little secret about protein you may not know about.  Just like different carbs have different rates of absorption and digestion, proteins do, too.  For example, egg whites are metabolized much faster than red meat.  On this plan we’ll be focusing on proteins that are metabolized quickly, such as chicken, fish, and eggs.

So at this point, you’re probably wondering, just how much protein do I need to eat?  That’s a great question, and for what we’re entrusted in accomplishing, the amount of protein that is required is basically determined by several factors:  the amount of muscle on your body and how physically active you are.  And to determine the amount of muscle you have on your body simply go to a gym or a fitness retailer that has a body fat measuring device and have a body fat percentage test done that will test your lean body mass, or how the amount of muscle you have on your body.

As you will see, we’ll use your DNA to fulfill your personal protein requirements at each meal, with optimum type and quantity, for your individual metabolism.  And rest assured, all the calculations will be done for you.
