The Fat Burning Diet is one of a few books written by Jay Robb, who has worked as a clinical nutritionist and fitness trainer for years. The Fat Burning diet attempts to unlock the secret of burning fat in order to have more energy and achieve a higher level of fitness and obtain a better body. However, you may find that with a closer look at this approach, there is nothing revolutionary here.
The concept aims to incorporate all the benefits of low carb dieting and its quick results while losing the disadvantages of health risks associated with low carb dieting. The approach is carb cycling, a plan that alternates high carb and low carb eating days, with a splurge meal built in. The design is supposed to help a user maintain longevity with the program and not give in to urges to fall off the wagon. There is even a vegetarian alternative with soy products and egg whites included in the diet to take the place of meat.
The theory is glycogen management, which is a carbohydrate used as a source of energy in the body. When carbs are cut, the body turns to burning fat as a fuel source, but it can only last for so long without a backlash, there must be a balance and this diet tries to give you that balance and keep you from giving into carb cravings.
While this may work for some, it seems difficult to maintain a long term schedule and keep track of low carb and high carb days. There also poses a risk of overeating on the high carb days as hunger and carb cravings kick in from the previous low carb day.
By eating 5 small meals a day with a balance of macronutrients you can maintain a stable blood sugar level throughout the day, never feeling groggy from a food coma or too hungry either. onsult with your dietician and personal trainer regarding the right approach to healthy diet and fitness practices for you.
