of years obesity was never seen. Our ancestors were never obese. They ate
less food (had not much option). Did far more physical work. They walked
everywhere. Did all the work manually with hands. Hunted and gathered.
They were never overweight or obese. They were slim and fit. They never
had these modern day diseases like diabetes (and associated secondary complications
like renal ailments, heart diseases) cancer etc. Over past 60 years
or so we are experiencing an obesity epidemic. The abundance of calorie
dense foods and decrease in physical activity are the main reasons behind
obesity. To counter this there are many myriad diet plans in the market
All these diet plans do work. If you
follow any of the above diet plans you will reduce weight. Now let em briefly
introduce myself. My name is Andrew M. Kahn I am Hempstead, New York based
dietitian and fitness trainer. In my 20 years as a professional dietitian
and fitness trainer I have applied many of the above mentioned diet plans
to my clients. I have seen them reduce weight. But in most of the cases
I have seen that my clients have nit only gained the post weight but have
put on even more weight. There are a few fundamental reasons behind this
For 5 days in a week you eat your normal food. But for 2 days you limit
your food intake to a mere 500 calories per day.
diet: It is 7 day diet plan. Your life will revolve around cabbage
soups. That is the only thing you will be eating for 7 days.
diet (Hollywood Diet/ Mayo Clinic Diet): This diet is based on the
claim that grapefruit has a fat burning enzyme or similar property. The
variations of the grapefruit diet are too low in calories (below 1200 calories
a day), too low in carbohydrates and too low in essential micro nutrients.
This diet is considered unhealthy.
: A fruitarian diet is a strict form of a vegetarian diet that is generally
limited to eating fresh fruits.
diet: This diet is for eight days with the dieter only eating one type
of food for two days each.
Days One - Two: Apples (black tea/coffee allowed)
Days Three - Four: Cheese (black tea/coffee allowed)
Days Five - Six: Chicken (black tea/coffee allowed)
Days Seven - Eight: Salad (black tea/coffee allowed)
diet: The Paleolithic diet is also popularly referred to as the caveman
diet, Stone Age diet and hunter-gatherer diet. Proponents of the diet recommend
avoiding any foods that they claim were not available to humans at that
time. This includes avoiding dairy products, grains, legumes, processed
oils and refined sugar.
Diet: It emphasizes eating high fiber, low-glycemic carbohydrates,
unsaturated fats and lean protein. It categorizes carbohydrates and fats
as "good" or "bad.
Gerson Therapy is a natural treatment that activates the body's extraordinary
ability to heal itself through organic, plant-based diet, raw juices, coffee
and natural supplements.
Reducing fat in the diet can make it easier to cut calories. Fat provides
nine calories per gram while carbohydrates and protein each provide four
calories per gram. choosing low-fat foods makes it possible to eat a larger
volume of food for the same number of calories.
diet: The diet plan allows consumption of unlimited bananas with room
temperature water or a serving of milk for breakfast. Lunch, and dinner
food choices are unrestricted. They can have one or more bananas as a snack
between meals but no other desserts are permitted. Nothing is eaten after
diet: Low-carbohydrate diets or low-carb diets are dietary programs
that restrict carbohydrate consumption. Foods high in easily digestible
carbohydrates (e.g., sugar, bread, pasta) are limited or replaced with
foods containing a higher percentage of fats and moderate protein (e.g.,
meat, poultry, fish, shellfish, eggs, cheese, nuts, and seeds) and other
foods low in carbohydrates
Diet : The diet involves limited consumption of carbohydrates to switch
the body's metabolism from metabolizing glucose as energy over to converting
stored body fat to energy. This process is called lipolysis which
consumes fat to produce ketone bodies. Atkins diet involve total elimination
of carbohydrates and consumption of foods rich in protein..
Addict's Diet: Carbohydrate Addicts Diet restricts certain carbohydrates
from your diet while allowing you to eat a modest of amount of approved
principle of PP is the restriction of carbohydrates in particular refined
ones. For hundreds of thousands of years our ancestors ate mainly animal
protein, with a few wild vegetables and nuts thrown in. Our bodies are
still designed to eat this way and doing otherwise has caused us tremendous
No need to count calories on this plan. You can lose weight with a high-fiber
diet made up of the right kinds of fruits, vegetables, proteins and whole
grains. But you have to give up refined sugar and flour.
to this diet plan the human body in calorie balance does not have to store
excess calories as fat. A 30:40 ratio of protein to carbohydrates (The
Zone) in food triggers fat burning mechanism.
The ketogenic diet is a high-fat, adequate-protein, low-carbohydrate diet
that forces the body to burn fat rather than carbohydrates for energy.
Principle: This diet is low in fat and high in fiber. The recommended
foods are fruits, vegetables, low-fat dairy, lean protein and fish.
Picture Perfect Weight Loss: The rationale behind Shapiro's diet is
"calorie concentration of foods" that is the key to controlling weight.
You can eat more of foods that have a lower calorie concentration than
you can of those with a higher calorie concentration.
Weight-Control Plan: This diet plan focusses on up on eating the right
foods that fill you up for less calories.
Fit for Life:
diet has been praised for encouraging the consumption of raw fruits and
vegetables. Some basic principles are 1) Fruits are best eaten fresh and
raw. Where possible they should be eaten alone. 2) Carbohydrates &
Proteins should never be combined in one meal. 3) Water dilutes stomach
digestive juices and should never be drunk at meals. 4) Dairy products
are considered of limited value and due to their allergic capacity and
they should seldom, if ever, be eaten.
The core of the Diet in the UK is a very-low-calorie diet (VLCD), as low
as 440 calories/day, combined with minerals, vitamins and fatty acids to
reduce the loss of nutrients typical of low calorie restriction.
This is about meal replacement. You'll need Slimfasts proprietary snack
bars, meal bars, and shakes for most of your food.
Baby Food Diet:
The idea behind the diet is to replace two daily meals with jars of homemade
pureed baby food or store bought jars. The third meal of the day is to
remain low calorie and small. The daily calorie restrictions are said to
be 600 calories or less.
Most of the above diet plans are by
definition meant to be followed only for a short term of around 7-15
days. Following beyond the stipulated period could be harmful. High protein
diets (like Atkins) could cause serious damage to kidney's and other organs
if followed continuously. Most other diet plans will lead to severe mineral,
vitamin and other nutrient deficiency.
These diet plans place stringent restrictions
on you and make your life miserable. They tend to forget that we feel hunger
pangs which if not quenched will make us feel very uncomfortable and miserable.
There is a fundamental reason behind why we feel the excess hunger pangs
in the first place. Hunger is the most powerful urge. It the nature's way
of preserving life. We cannot stay away from eating if we feel hungry.
If we suppress hunger our body will go into the "famine mode" which will
drastically slow down the body's energy metabolism.
In short almost everyone find it miserable
and experience huge discomfort while following these diet plans. Most of
the weight loss is due to breakdown of precious muscle cells and loss of
water content in the body. Once the 7-15 days diet regime is stopped people
tend to consume far more food and put on even greater weight.
There is indeed only one basic
way to reduce weight. You have to spend more calories than you actually
consume. You have to create a calorie deficit. The food we consume contains
primarily carbohydrates, proteins and fats.
Excess calorie consumed in any form
- be it carbohydrate, protein or fat tend to get stored only as fat in
the body. So for every additional 9000 calorie we consume our body weight
increases by 1 kilogram (2.2 pounds) of pure fat. Conversely for every
9000 calorie deficit we create in our body we lose 1 Kg of fat.
1 gram of carbohydrate contains 4 calories
1 gram of protein contains 4 calories
1 gram of fat contains 9 calories.
But how this calorie deficit is created
is very important if you have to shed serious fat on a permanent basis.
Normal calorie requirement for a man of 35 years age and 65 kg weight is
2000 calories. Normal calorie requirement for a woman of same age and weight
is 1700 calories -assuming the lifestyle is sedentary. If you consume just
this amount of food then you will not gain any weight. Even if you do not
do any visible physical activity and spend whole day in desk you will automatically
burn off 1700- 2000 calories. How is it possible? Our body is operating
nonstop 24 hours a day lifelong. It needs energy to pump the blood, for
heart beat, build the cells, breaking down the cells, for blinking of the
eyes and such countless metabolic process. Thus it manages to spend anything
upwards 1500 calories without we doing any voluntary physical activity.
This is generally known as calorie spent for metabolic process. When we
are young as in teens and early twenties our metabolic rate is at its peak
so the body takes up more calories for its metabolic process. This is the
reason why in our teen age years despite consuming more food and not indulging
in any overt physical activity we were very slim. But as we grow older
in age we pile on more and more fat despite consuming less food and doing
more physical activity. Our body's metabolic rate is an important factor
in determining our weight.
We would rather call it as FATOL
fat loss plan rather than weight loss plan. Because you can reduce
your overall body weight by losing muscles, losing water content in the
body or by reduction in bone density - which are the most unhealthy ways
to reduce weight. The only proper way to lose weight is by losing fat.
FATOL weight loss plan is about melting away solid and stubborn fat from

put to practice immediately. the books will be precise and to the point
right from the first sentence.
The main reason why obesity has reached
epidemic proportions now (over past 50 years or so) has got more to do
with abundance of simple carbohydrates rather than high fat food. The main
reason so many of us struggle to lose weight is because we eat too much
sugar and processed food. Even supposedly healthy low-fat foods are very
often packed with hidden sugars or white flour [which the body swiftly
converts into sugar]. This means that our blood-sugar levels bubble away
on maximum all day long. The body deals with this sugar overload by releasing
the hormone insulin which filters glucose out of the blood and sends it
off to be stored as fat. There is an additional mechanism that the body
uses to protect delicate brain cells from the possible sugar overload.
Every brain cell is surrounded by ten or more special 'feeder cells' (called
glial cells) which monitor and control the amount of blood sugar in the
brain. These cells have the important job of ensuring that a precisely
measured supply of sugar reaches the brain cells. Each one houses a microscopic
pump, which measures the density of sugar in the blood and then supplies
the brain cell with exactly the right amount of fuel. If we eat too many
biscuits, chocolate, fizzy drinks or pastries, these pumps are prone to
sudden 'emergency shut-downs' to protect the brain cells from sugar overload.
This means only the tiniest trickle of fuel is allowed to reach brain cells
until the potentially dangerous sugar-rush is over. This mechanism would
work well if the glut of sugar was only short-lived but thanks to our modern
diet most of us are likely to be nibbling and grazing on sugary foods all
day. We consume sugary teas, coffees, soda pops, pasta, pizza, chocolates,
cakes and myriad type of foods. The result? The glial cells are switched
off for long periods, leaving brain cells surviving on emergency fuel rations.
The brain as a result is always hungry. Hungry brain is a stressed brain.
In desperation, the brain will send out a cocktail of chemical messages
to try to drum up sugar from any other possible source. This is a vicious
cycle. These chemical messages trigger insatiable sugar cravings, leaving
us feeling powerless to resist finishing the whole packet of biscuits,
indulging in another slice of cake or grabbing a sweet cup of tea - consuming
more and more carbs. Honey holds the key to breaking this vicious cycle.
Brief outline of
the contents in FATOL Honey Diet book
FATOL Honey Diet is the
simplest and most enjoyable of all the diet plans. You can eat as much
as 6 times a day. You have to mandatorily drink FATOL BEVERAGE as
mentioned below. Follow the diet plan for at least 7 days. You will reduce
solid fat. After that you can indulge in your favorite foods but with some
basic guidelines which is outlined. While following FATOL Honey Diet
if you feel more hunger pangs you can prepare FATOL BEVERAGE and drink
it. Your hunger pangs will vanish within minutes. Starting from the very
first page you will be able to put the instructions into use almost immediately.
You can finish reading this book and understand it within 30 minutes. The
very next minute you will be preparing the FATOL BEVERAGE and foods according
to FATOL Honey Diet . You will be experiencing the benefits starting from
the very first day.
FATOL Honey Diet differs
fundamentally from other diet plans. It is something natural and you will
enjoy following this plan. You will not feel it like something forcefully
thrust upon you. You can follow this diet plan lifelong and you will enjoy
follwing it. This is how people feel with most other diet plans. You will
not be made to fight against food like other weight loss plans. You can
NEVER fight against food and win in the long run. It is against nature.
This is the reason why most diet plans fail.
With FATOL Honey Diet
your hunger pangs, carbohydrate cravings and sweet tooth will be taken
care of. Hunger is the most primal craving. It is the nature's way of preserving
life. Carbohydrates are the first source of energy. Our body can instantly
and easily derive energy to sustain itself only from carbohydrates (glucose).
We need protein and fats too but they are first converted into carbohydrates
(glucose) through a complex process known as Gluconeogenesis. Our brain
is constantly looking for glucose. This is the reason why it is impossible
to overcome carb craving. This is also the reason why most other diet regimes
make you feel miserable. I have seen that those who subject themselves
to other diet plans do lose weight temporarily. But they gain back much
more than what they lost.
With FATOL Honey Diet you
lose weight by shedding solid fat and not by muscle loss or dehydration.
With most diet plans (apart from high protein plans like Atkins diet) you
end up losing weight by break down of muscles. When you deprive yourself
of carbohydrate or supply yourself with wrong carbohydrates the brain will
enter into famine mode (also known as starvation response) and start deriving
its energy needs from the next easiest source muscles. There will be
breakdown of muscles. Lean tissue and muscle will be burnt as fuel source.
The high protein diets (like Atkins) do not cause muscle tissue loss but
are fraught with other serious side effects. High protein diet can result
in very high levels of ketones leading to bad breath, tiredness, weakness,
dizziness, insomnia and nausea. Chronic constipation is another side effect
of high protein Atkins diet. Many experts and doctors are also worried
that high intakes of protein may cause kidney problems or weaken bones.
Unbalanced nature of the Atkins diet may lead to nutritional deficiencies
The FATOL BEVERAGE is
a unique beverage. It has just 3 common ingredients. You will find
these ingredients in the very first grocery store you come across anywhere
in the world. FATOL BEVERAGE has both hunger quenching and
mood elevating effects. The ingredients in FATOL BEVERAGE are mixed in
such a way that they elevate mood and curtail hunger pangs. The hunger
pangs are curtailed naturally by supplying the body its source of energy
and not by masking hunger artificially like prescription appetite suppressants.
Depression (mild to moderate) is the one of the reasons behind overeating
and excess hunger pangs. This is the reason why anti-depressants are commonly
prescribed as a weight loss pill. The ingredients in FATOL BEVERAGE are
well documented for their mood elevating effects (similar to chocolates).
The ingredients for FATOL BEVERAGE have to be specifically made as per
instructions to have both hunger quenching and mood elevating effects
With FATOL Honey Diet
you will be eating 6 times a day. But you will not be eating whatever you
want. The diet plan will tell you exactly what to eat and when to eat.
Once you complete the 7 day FATOL Honey Diet you can indulge in your
usual food habits. But you will be following some very basic guidelines
in your food habits. However I want you to drink FATOL BEVERAGE daily
lifelong. FATOL BEVERAGE will act as an anchor in your life.

Thermogenic diet is at times wrongly
called as Negative calorie diet. Basically there is no such food as negative
calorie food. But there are certain type of foods that require far more
calories for digestion and releasing energy. The calorific "cost" of digesting
the food is far higher. Such foods satisfy hunger by filling the stomach
with food that has a lower calorie count per volume. For example consider
glucose, 100 grams of glucose has 400 calories. It instantly releases almost
all the 400 calories.
Take 100 grams of table sugar for
example. It has 370 calories (pure 100 grams glucose has 400 calories).
The moment we put sugar in the mouth it melts and is instantly digested
converting into 370 calories of energy. These excess calories if not burnt
adds up to 41 grams of fat in our body. Sugar will neither fill your stomach
nor quench your hunger. Moreover sugar (converted to glucose) will also
release insulin which will trigger the fat storing mechanism. If your stomach
is not filled then your brain will sense scarcity and body's metabolism
will go into a type of hibernation mode. It will reduce the overall resting
energy metabolism. This is the nature's way of preserving energy and life
at times of scarcity.
Now take 100 grams apple for example.
It has on the average 50 calories per 100 grams. But unlike sugar the apple
needs to be chewed, masticated and sent down to the digestive system. In
digestive system extra work has to be done to digest apple and to finally
release the 50 calories of energy. All the process of chewing, mastication
and digestion requires additional calorie spend. The net result is that
you end up spending more calories than you actually get when you eat apple.
Well if you eat only apples for 7 full days you will end up losing drastic
amount of fat. But it will only make you feel miserable and you will feel
the uncontrollable craving for carbohydrates. So you should never indulge
in that kind of diet. All the fad diets do something like this. Some may
require you to eat only protein based food shunning all the carbohydrates
and some may require you to consume only cabbage soup. It is proven that
no one loses weight with these fad diets in the long run.
Apple as we saw above is a thermogenic
food - it burns more calories than you actually receive. There are hundreds
of such foods- fruits, vegetables and meat products that has this property
of thermogenis. FATOL THERMOGENIC
DIET is about a master soup that
you will be preparing with any of these hundreds of thermogenic foods.
This FATOL thermogeneic soup is so delicious and tasty that you will fall
in love with this. You can use your imagination and use a wide variety
of ingredients to make this soup. The more you consume this soup more
the weight you lose. Would you like to eat 24 hours a day? Go ahead
and consume this Thermegenic master soup. You will lose more weight. After
7 days you can even indulge in pizzas, burgers, fries or any food you cherish.
You will not feel like eating beyond a limit.

Those who go to gym and do stringent
aerobic workouts like jogging, swimming, cycling etc.. will tell you how
difficult it is to reduce weight. This is not do say weight training or
aerobic exercises are useless. You should always take to them. They will
keep you fit and healthy. But weight loss (fat loss to reiterate) is altogether
a different ball game. It is smart work rather than handwork that will
do the trick. Prolonged aerobic exercise does not lead to weight
Can aerobic exercise help in fat loss?
FATOL Pro Intensity
workout is an aerobic workout but works
on the high intensity interval training principle. This workout will not
affect your joints (particularly knees) unlike other aerobic workouts.
The time taken to do this workout is very short a mere 4 minutes hence
it will not cause any dip in testosterone levels. Since exercise is not
done for a prolonged time the calorie expenditure is derived by breaking
down of the fat cells. The main benefit of FATOL
Pro Intensity is from its effect on
body's energy metabolism. You will be spending more calories even at rest
throughout the day.
Aerobics burn a relatively small amount
of calories vs. the time spent. You cannot spend more than 600 calories
(on an average) in one hour of jogging/swimming. Such intense aerobics
will cause a dip in carbohydrate (glucose level) in the body. To make up
for it the brain triggers carbohydrate cravings and hunger pangs. If sufficient
carbohydrates are not consumed the brain senses danger and immediately
starts breaking down the precious muscle cells to supply the energy. It
will also slow down your body's energy metabolism. This is the reason why
aerobic workouts do not lead to weight loss or worse lead to weight loss
by breaking down of the precious muscle tissues.
For men aerobics are a form of chemical
castration. Aerobics tend to lower Testosterone levels. This in turn is
associated with lowered libido, depression, anxiety, increased body fat
and decreased muscle tissue. This contributes to muscle-wasting and lowers
the basal metabolic rate.
Those above 30 years of age should never
do high impact exercise like jogging, skipping etc. for more than 10 minutes
a day. It will severely affect your knees and cause it to age quickly.
Fast walking, swimming and other non impact exercises are the ones that
are much safer.
Can Weight or resistance training
exercise lead to fat loss?
Weight training exercise tend to prevent
muscle atrophy and build more muscle tissues. Muscle tissues tend to burn
more calories even at rest as compared to fat (increase in energy metabolism).
But it is extremely difficult to build muscles throughout the body. It
needs hours of workouts coupled with high protein supplements.
Most men (and to considerable extent
women too) pile up excess fat in the mid portion of the body. It is not
possible to directly do weight training to build muscles in the abdominal
area. You have to first reduce fat to a considerable extent by other means
- diet and aerobics before doing intense muscle building exercise..
Pro Builder is
an unique workout that helps build muscle throughout the body at the same
time. Those who are regular gym goers will tell you how difficult it is
to build muscles throughout the body. You have to do the workouts separately
for each portion and it take hours daily. You will be amazed at the way
FATOL Pro Builder helps
you build more muscle throughout the body. In fact it goes even further-
it combines the principles of both aerobic and anaerobic exercise to turn
your body into a fat blasting machine.
is about burning of calories and boosting
your energy metabolism even after you stop the physical workout. In FATOL
WORKOUT you will burn calories continuously
throughout the day on 24 hour basis. The energy spent will not be derived
from carbohydrate (glucose) source but will come directly by the breakdown
of fat cells as it will be an anaerobic process. We have devised an extremely

workouts that combine aerobic and anaerobic exertion.
FATOL Pro Intensity
workout takes just 4 minutes including 1 minute of intermittent
rest. It is sufficient to do this workout for just 5 days a week (no harm
if done on all days). This is a high intensity interval training that
fires up the metabolism. This workout tricks the brain into anticipating
physical exertion continuously for all the 24 hours. The result is that
the energy reserve in our body - the stubborn fat cells will be broken
down and energy expended. You will need a treadmill or a stationary
cycle or just a plain ground for this workout.
FATOL Pro Builder
workout is for those who cannot do high intensity training. This workout
takes a total of 30 minutes including 6 minutes of intermittent
rest. This workout will again trick the brain into anticipating physical
exertion for all the 24 hours and make it dip into fat stored in the body
for energy. This workout will also build solid muscle tissues throughout
the body and boost the basal metabolic rate. You will need a treadmill
or plain ground and weight straps (the book will give instructions on how
to make this weight straps within minutes)
