Over recent years there has been lots of information about many new diets and nutrition options. Today we are going to look at one of these diets, the Body Trim program.
Body Trim has been touted as a revolutionary weight loss system which educates you on how to lose weight quickly, easily and naturally without the aid of pills, tonics or shakes. It is an educational program, which is designed to help you understand how to eat, and guarantees permanent weight loss. It will also help to eliminate cravings, stop weight loss plateaus, convert your body into a fat burning machine, show you a permanent long term solution to weight loss, and increase your energy levels. It has been designed by Geoff Jowlett (former Personal Trainer of the year), along with dieticians and doctors.
The program is based around the 3 W’s – what to eat, when to eat and why. It promotes being able to still enjoy the foods you love, while being easy to follow and understand, and is tailored to help you achieve your weight loss goals.
The entire premise of this program is to consume 6 meals a day: 3 main meals and 3 protein snacks. The program is broken down into 3 phases:
Phase 1- This is a 3 day carbohydrate-free phase, where you are essentially detoxing. You are only allowed to consume protein for the entire 6 meals and there are many options provided to you to choose from.
Phase 2 – This is the weight loss phase and is targeted towards your personal weight loss goals. This phase is continued until you reach your ideal weight and allows you to eat 3 main meals (consisting of protein and salad or vegetables (not potatoes or starchy options), and 3 protein based snacks. You are allowed to consume 1 slice of bread for breakfast or lunch only. This is followed for 6 days and then you are given a free day. This is where you are allowed to eat whatever you like (within reason, watching your fat and sugar intake). After these 7 days you continue the cycle again, with Day 1 being a protein only day and days 2-6 mainly protein and vegetables.
This diet focuses primarily on what you eat, not on strenuous exercise; however, they recommend you must complete 10,000 steps each day (including a 30 minute walk).
Overall, this program has received very positive reviews from people who have taken up the offer and adopted this new way of life.
