“We talk about trying to find 300 calories to change — 150 through exercise, 150 through nutrition,” says Curtis. As you learn more about the calorie content of food, you may find that you can actually eat a lot more low-calorie but healthy foods, like fruits and vegetables, than you thought.
Hi Haley, glad to hear you loved it! 🙂 Yes, just continue on to the more difficult exercise plan from where you left off. There’s no need to start from the beginning. To make things more difficult, you can also start changing the upper, lower and total body workout routines to make them more challenging. So instead of increasing how long you’re exercising to make it more difficult, just make the workouts more difficult. Plus, your body will get used to the workout routine after about 12 weeks. So even just changing the exercises you’re doing would be new and unusual for your body, making the new exercises more challenging. This will help you avoid a fitness or weight loss plateau, and help you to keep getting great results in terms of calorie burning, muscle strength and fitness, for a toned, strong body!
Although going as low as 1200 calories per day may not be suitable for some people we believe that for the average woman it should not create any problems (provided of course that you are not pregnant or suffering from any disease or disorder). Phases 2 and 3 are according to safety guidelines and the overall instructions provided in the 17 day diet book do not engage any health risks. The calorie cycling is indeed a way to kick start your metabolism and since each phase is only 17 days it does not create any other side effects.

People tend to lose fat way too fast on traditional fat loss plans in the bodybuilding community with fat loss protocols calculating results in 4, 8, or 12 weeks. Fat loss meal plans that I carry out with my clients seeking to drop more than 5-10% in body fat often take 12, 16, or even 20 or more weeks.
Reducing salty food and processed food containing nitrates is good. But as one exercises you need to maintain a healthy intake of sodium and balance of electrolytes as I found out to my cost and ended up having cramps and palpitations.

“However, keep in mind calories still count, especially if you’re looking to drop a few pounds,” says Christine Gerbstadt, MD, RD, the author of Doctor’s Detox Diet: The Ultimate Weight Loss Prescription. “If you’re increasing protein intake, you need to cut back elsewhere.”
Your doctor knows your medical history, and he/she will be the best person to tell you if you should eat a particular food or avoid it, do a certain exercise or just do an alternative exercise. Weight loss depends on various factors and your current medication can also sometimes hinder weight loss or make you gain weight. Talk to your doctor to know if there is any other medicine that will not hinder your weight loss goals.
Peas, beans and legumes are full of protein and fiber, which will either fill you up or give you wind – or both – depending on your constitution. Combine them with brown rice, barley, wheat and corn and add them to lasagna, casseroles, soups, salads or mash the up as a dip for extra protein and added nutrients, minus the fat.
