Good Weight Loss Program

The calorie shifting diet is a good weight loss program to follow. Unlike other diets, where you must reduce your intake of the quantity or the types of foods you can eat, on the calorie shifting diet, you can eat as much food as you want until you are satisfied and you can eat from all four of the major food groups. In doing so, you can expect to lose 9 pounds every 11 days while on this diet regimen.

How does the calorie shifting diet work? This diet is designed around the principle that you can manipulate your body's metabolism, at will, to burn fat quickly, simply by rotationally shifting the types of calories that you consume at each meal over the course of several days.

Somewhat analogous to how a low-carbohydrate diet induces rapid weight loss due to the lack of carbohydrates in your diet, the calorie-shifting diet also induces rapid weight loss by the lack of various nutrients in your body as well.

The major difference is that in a low-carbohydrate diet, you must reduce your carbohydrate intake to only couple dozen grams of carbohydrates per day, whereas in the calorie-shifting diet, you are constantly rotating different types of nutrients - carbohydrates, proteins, dairy, produce, meats, and breads - in and out of your diet, so that by the time your body goes into "deprivation" mode and begins to burn fat because it is being "starved" of one type of nutrient, you reintroduce that nutrient back into your diet while you remove another one.

The net effect is that your body remains in a perpetual fat-burning mode, even though you are eating plentiful food and you are eating from every food group! Your body is being fooled into thinking that it needs to burn fat.

There are only 4 basic rules to this diet:

  1. You must eat four full meals every day.
  2. Eat as much food as you want at each meal until you are satisfied but not until you are too full.
  3. Space each meal out by at least 2.5 to 3 hours.
  4. You must take a break every 12th through 14th days on this diet, to give your body a chance to rest from the rapid weight loss you will be experiencing.

Here are some sample meal plans that illustrate how this diet might look during a typical week. The diet plan actually runs in 11-day cycles but only 3 days are included here, just to give you an idea of how the plan is structured and to give you a sense of how satisfying and sustainable this diet truly is. Keep in mind that each of these four meals may be eaten in any order throughout the day, as long as you only eat that the designated foods at each of their respective meals.
