4-Day Diet

April 11, 2009 10:56:58 AM PDT
Dr. Ian Smith's 4-Day Diet plan promises to help you shed those extra pounds without getting overwhelmed or bored. Dr. Smith joined us with tips. THE 4-DAY DIET program is broken down into 4-day "modules," so it's much more effective and easier to stick with.

Here's why:

You can focus on just a few days rather than several weeks, which can feel overwhelming.
The modules allow you to work a variety of foods into your diet, so you don't get bored eating the same food and you don't feel like you're depriving yourself.
Varying the types and amount of food you eat keeps your body off-kilter, requiring it to burn more energy, and preventing the much-dreaded weight-loss plateau.

Each module is supposed to do and what kinds of foods are in each module:

Induction (detox/cleansing)
Transition (to reintroduce all food groups)
Protein Stretch (to avoid plateaus)
Smooth (when you can have some formerly forbidden foods like pizza and french fries)
Push (the sprint, just before the final stretch, back to a stricter eating plan)
Pace (a comfortable module for you to catch your breath)
Vigorous (the final module to lose those last few pounds)

The key elements of mental preparation in the 4 Day Diet:

S- Sense of Where You Are
M- Make Realistic Goals
A- Activate Your Motivational Engines
R- Resist Temptation
T- Think Thin
E- Every Bite Counts
R- Reward Yourself
