Fat Smash Diet - Page 2
i think the big questions are... can i lose weight at a rate that i will not gain it all back as quickly as i took it off, and can i eat this way for the rest of my life?
my mom was on weight watchers for over 2 years. she told me she learned a new way to eat. but when she went off of it, she gained back almost a 1/3 of the weight she lost pretty quickly.
If you don't have a problem being veg, which I don't, this is a less restrictive diet than South Beach, Fat Flush, etc. You get to eat FRUIT, brown rice and yams. I'm checking it out.
I assume wine is not allowed? :
OK, I know I'm bad but I just visited the Fat Smash website...he is the hottest diet doc I've ever seen.
Wine allowed or not, I have not denied myself the few ounces of wine on any good eating plan and still manage to lose weight so long as I'm eating predominantly fruits, veggies, some whole grain (not overboard) and high-fiber protein (beans and even nuts!). I've never restricted my avocado either.
I'm sorry, but this diet is ridiculous. If you lose that much weight so quickly yo are most likely going to gain it all back when you start eating " normal" again. The reason why you lost so much is because you aren't eating any foods! Are you actually going to count at 7 saltine crackers and 10 cashews and.... that seems so silly.
I don't mean to burst your bubble- I'm glad you got results.. I hope it continues to work for you!
If you go from this to 2000+ calories a day, with no adjustment period then yes, it will all come back quickly.
These types of diet produce rapid early results via water loss. The OP understands this, and for people who need to lose a lot of weight (30 + lbs or more) it does them no harm and may give them the encouragement they need to continue slowly changing their eating habits.
But I would not recommend this for a nursing mother. Dehydration is bad for making milk and bad for mamas who are making milk. If you want to lose weight, I suggest you try calorie counting. You determine your baseline daily calories burned (and you would factor in the fact that you are nursing) then eat at a slight deficit (no more than 20%, less if you have less than 30 lbs to lose). You will lose weight, slowly and safely, and not jeopardize your milk production. The benefit of this method is that there are no forbidden foods, so you can choose healthy foods for nursing mums, like higher fat content stuff (avocados, coconut oil, full fat milk). You can very easily count and track calories with the available apps, etc today. I use MyFitnessPal but there are many other options out there as well.
