Fair warning, this one is a rant. It’s probably a bit long, but to read it. I have some things to get off my chest, and I believe a lot of people reading this will find it refreshing.
We have a problem in this country, well, actually in this world – with people overeating. Obviously overeating is one of the primary reasons people are struggling with bellyfat and excess bodyweight in general. The solution to this problem is not “don’t eat so much”, although that is the end goal. The solution is to really, REALLY understand how your body uses fuel and how to create a diet plan that allows you to take advantage of it.
First, my rant.
You want to know why 99% of the people who fail to see results from any dietplan, I mean REALLY fail? Because they do not understand how smart and powerful their bodies really are.
Look, there is no dietplan on earth will allow you to eat whatever you want every day. That’s fat loss suicide. No pills will cure this. No surgery.
Only this will cure it – Use your body’s own internal appetite mechanisms to your advantage.
On the journey of getting fit and make weight control, some people succeed, others do not. It’s the same story no matter what your goals may be.
But in fatloss, the difference between success and failure, in lot of case, it is NOT the dietplan, its the need to fully appreciate how and why it works.
So, here’s the facts, the EODD Plan is build around a simple concept: Eat your favorite foods “often” and still drop the body weight you want.
And it works, not because it’s a gimmick, but because it uses the science of metabolism, natural hormonal manipulation, and psychology to prepare your body to eat more calories.
If you’ve tried EODD with success, you know what I’m talking about. If not, then read on.
First, EODD NEVER promises you that you can eat however MUCH you want every other day,
no, no, NO!
It’s whatever you want Not however MUCH you want. That is the sole reason a small fraction of many people are not seeing the results they want.
Now, here’s the beauty of it all: After about 3 weeks after the System of Eating, you simply cannot overeat, well, you can, but you’d have to force-feed yourself to pull it off.
You’ve been feeding yourself often for the day or two before your favorite food meals.
The higher protein and very low starch content of the nutrition plan (with plenty of veggies) ensures that your body’s metabolism stays higher. BUT… and this is crucial, the amount of food consumed on these days before is not that much.
Myself, I’m never starving, I just follow the System, which does the calorie-counting for me.
Plus I know my body really well after all these years.
So, after days of eating enough to keep my metabolism relatively high, and right BEFORE it starts to slow down (your metabolism slows when you do not eat enough, bringing fatloss to a rapid halt), I hit the body with a lot of calories.
BUT please read this: I do not eat “however much” I want on my feed meals. I eat WHATEVER I want in reasonable portions. I don’t have to fight to not overeat, even when it’s pizza or burgers. Why? Because my body is set up to want more food, but also trained not to eat too much food at one sitting.
This is because I’ve been “grazing” – eating small, frequent meals the days before my feed day. And the body learns to adapt, quickly 🙂
The brain is actually re-trained to signal the stomach that you’ve had enough food, yes, even when it’s dessert, or pizza, or whatever your favorite food may be.
So here’s the deal: Yes, you can lose all the belly fat and body fat you want eating like this, but like anything else that works, you have to follow a few simple rules.
The result is a dietplan where you never feel trapped. You always know that tomorrow, or possibly the day after, you can have whatever food you want. Just in reasonable amounts.
If you ask me, this is the perfect trade-off. No starvation, super-healthy eating at least 4 days a week, and you get to eat your cake as well (literally if you want). It’s not magic – it’s science, and a bit of work on your part. Yes, work. Nothing happens with effort. But put some effort into this System and boy, there’s not a better dietplan on the face of the earth.
In conclusion, I like to think of The Every Other Day Dietplan as “The Thinking Person’s Dietplan” – Anyone who considers every angle of what it takes to shed body fat: Food you enjoy, freedom, a plan that’s easy to follow, and flexibility will recognize this right away as the ideal approach. But, like all ideal approaches, it requires you to re-think the way you eat.
You eat for fuel, period. But you CAN (and should) eat for pleasure too. As long as you keep FUEL as the main reason you are eating in the forefront of your mind, your body (and mind) will follow. Your body will adapt and begin to use both healthy and “not-so-healthy” foods as fuel.
Fuel to power your workouts, help you burn off that belly fat and bodyweight you don’t want, and allow your sense of control.
Especially now, with the holidays upon us, “food as fuel first; food as pleasure second” should be carved into your dinner table. Because, let’s face it: When all that holiday overeating is over with, you will be left with a bigger belly, feeling sluggish, and just one more step away from the body you want.
What I mean in the best of both worlds is that you just have to be willing to re-think some things and give your body a few weeks to re-learn what it already knows – When to signal you that you’re full, and way before you overeat.
That’s the only way to keep your MIND satisfied and happy. And your mind is the key to your body’s success.
