Are you one of those people who have tried countless weight loss diets and exercise regimens but to no avail? Have you ever wondered why some people lose weight so quickly, when for you, it takes months? If this is true to you, then don’t worry. According to Dr. Leo Galland, it’s not your fault, but the fault of a chemical imbalance in your body caused by the resistance of hormones called leptin and adiponectin. Dr. Galland is the creator of the program known as the Fat Resistance Diet.
According to the acclaimed doctor, too much fat in the body causes inflammation. The inflammation is the catalyst for leptin resistance. In this event, the body’s metabolism slows down. At the same time, a person suffering from this will have increased food cravings, thus leading to more weight gain. So, how does the Fat Resistance Program
work? There are actually three levels or stages of the program and they are the following:
* Stage One – Basically, this stage involves making sure that the inflammation is lessened. This is done through eating less carbohydrates and more protein-rich foods. As much as ten servings of fruit per day are also required for this stage.
* Stage Two – In this stage, some carbohydrates can be introduced, such as brown rice and oats.
* Stage Three – This is the maintenance stage. More complex foods can be eaten. However, foods such as refined grain and processed foods should be avoided.
Upon examination, the above stages seem simple. However, Dr. Galland’s book is very precise in what you can and can’t eat. The disadvantages also include more expensive food products and lengthy preparation time. But the advantages of this program cannot be denied. In the first stage alone, one would notice lessened cravings or appetite. The diet is quick, safe, and very healthy. Truth be told, I’d even give it a try.
