The Hollywood Diet

The Hollywood diet was invented in 1997 by Jamie Kabler. It’s a very extreme meal plan, which requires medical supervision.

There are 2 classic options of the Hollywood diet: 48 Hour Diet and 24 Hour Diet. When you follow the Hollywood diet, you have to take a special drink for 48 or 24 hours. It calls The Hollywood 48 Hour Miracle Diet and The Hollywood 24 Hour Miracle Diet. Each bottle of the product contains all useful vitamins and elements, so you can get almost all necessary acids and minerals. You can buy the product on the official web-site and have a consultation with a specialist.

During the day you should drink The Hollywood 48 Hour Miracle Diet or The Hollywood 24 Hour Miracle Diet four times in the following proportion: 4 oz of the product mixed with 4 oz bottled water. The interval between «meals» has to be about four hours. Each serving contains about 100 calories.

You should just choose the term to follow the diet, buy one of the drinks and follow the instructions.

Pros of the Hollywood diet:

you lose weight very fast;
The Hollywood 48 Hour Miracle Diet and The Hollywood 24 Hour Miracle Diet have all necessary vitamins, acids, minerals, etc;
you can make the diet your lifestyle;
the hunger doesn’t bother you much;
it’s almost perfect meal plan for people with obesity;
you don’t have to visit a gym 3 times a week;
it’s not so difficult to follow the diet for 24/48 hours;
you can lose up to 10 kg.

Cons of the Hollywood diet:

you get less healthy fats and protein;
you are not allowed to drink water/coffee/juices etc. during the diet;
you cannot smoke, drink alcohol and even chew gum;
you must drink only The Hollywood 48 Hour Miracle Diet or The Hollywood 24 Hour Miracle Diet;
very extreme diet (requires medical supervision);
it’s not suitable for pregnant, breastfeeding moms and people with chronic disease.

The characteristic of the Hollywood diet:

The Hollywood 48/24 Hours Diet may not be suitable for some people, so there is a light-version of the extreme meal plan. So, we created modification of the Hollywood Diet, where we replaced one meal by The Hollywood Daily Miracle Diet Drink and Mix Meal Replacement.

Attention! Before following the diet, consult a doctor.

I CREATED THIS WEBSITE of many diets but this is the one I now follow personally.

If you are if concerned not only with weight loss but with your health, especially getting diseases like cancer, heart disease, high blood pressure or diabetes, or any of a plethora of other illnesses, then stop right here! This diet might just be what you have been looking for, for a long time. It’s simply Amazing. If you follow this diet strictly for 6 weeks you just might thank me that you found this page. Read on and try the eat to live diet plan.

  3. plus a new understanding of health that will pay dividends for your entire life.

Do you think these statements are far out! Think again…follow the eat to live diet plan to see for yourself.

Eat To Live Diet Reviews

I have pasted some of the reviews from the Eat to Live Book here to give the reader
some idea of the scope of this book. A 1 day example of the diet will follow, and if you want to continue with it I recommend you get the eat to live diet book.

These reviews are from the inside cover of the book by Dr. Joel Fuhrman.

“To write a great and informative book on the cutting edge of health care, one that can truly help people, it would take a real true pioneer doctor. Such is the nature of Eat to Live, whose author, Dr. Fuhrman, is a way ahead of his time. Fortunate are those readers who stumble upon this diet book. They walk under a very lucky star!”

“Finally, a diet book that takes a look at the real science of eating in a spot on fashion. Most books about diet have very little basis in proven real physiology. Dr. Fuhrman’s book, called Eat to Live, deals with why it is that we gain weight, how you can lose weight, and how to keep thin and also healthy for a lifetime. Dr. Fuhrman backs this up with real proven scientific data. All controversy will end after you read this entire book. It will be the last word in diet books and the one I will recommend to all my patients.”
— Thomas Davenport, M.D.,

AND FROM PATIENTS OF DR. FUHRMAN

I could not play with any of my children; because my fatigue and tiredness were unbearable. I was getting sicker and sicker and then I heard this Dr. Fuhrman speak.
I now have lost 60 pounds, and went from size 22-plus to size 8. I have stayed at 125 pounds now for three years. Dr. Fuhrman truly saved my life. My 3 teen sons and my daughter all saw the results I’ve achieved and have each adopted the eat to live diet plan,receiving dramatic overall health improvements themselves. We no longer have allergies or digestive problems.
— Lynne Bush

I have to thank my daughter Geri. It was her that absolutely insisted I go and visit Dr. Fuhrman. She said that if any doctor can help me, it’s him. After 25 years on insulin for diabetes, I was totally off of it in a few short days. I was a good patient and did what Dr. Fuhrman told me to do, and it was really worth it. After losing 65 pounds, I have been free from meds for about two years. I owe it in whole to him.

HCG Diet Plan

What Is HCG Diet?

hcg-diet-planThe HCG diet plan revolves around a female hormone called Human Chorionic Gonadotrophin. It is a hormone pregnant women make early in their pregnancy. The diet was developed by an English endocrinologist, Dr. Albert T. W. Simeons.

HCG has been put into hcg diet drops and sprays or hcg injections. You can get injections from your doctor that you take while following a very low-calorie diet. Alternately you can use the diet drops.

The HCG affects your metabolism by telling your body to open fat stores.

When you follow a very low-calorie diet and take the drops or injections at the same time, you can lose up to a pound or more per day. At least that is the claim. When following the HCG diet you adhere to a strict 500 calorie diet plan.

There are HCG meal plans and an HCG diet food list that will outline which foods you can eat while on the hcg diet plan.

There are also many HCG diet recipes you can make while on this diet.

HCG Diet Side Effects

There are few HCG diet dangers to know about before starting on the HCG DIET PLAN.

Blood Pressure

This diet could increase blood pressure, however, some people actually report a lowering of blood pressure. It may depend on how your individual body handles this diet. You should talk to your doctor before starting this diet, especially if you already have high blood pressure.

Gall Stones

Since you are eliminating quite a bit of the fat  there is some risk of gall stones.
Cleansing your gall bladder first is a good thing to do before starting, especially if you are prone to gallstones or have had them in the past.

Water Retention

As you are taking a female hormone there is a fair possibility you may get bloated. In order to combat this make sure to drink a lot of water.

Constipation

Don’t be surprised if you don’t go to the bathroom every day. Since you are not eating much you may not go more than every 2 or 3 days in fact.

Headache

This may occur as your body adjusts to the diet and the hormones.

Dizziness

Since you are following such a low-calorie diet on the hcg diet plan, dizziness can occur. When on the diet make sure you have a few days where you don’t have to do anything strenuous so if you get dizzy you can easily sit down.

Leg Cramps

Caused by low potassium in the diet. Taking a potassium supplement or multi vitamin that will help.

Rash

This is another possible side effect.

Stages of The HCG Diet

There are 3 stages to the HCG diet 

Loading

This is the first stage and you start with taking the HCG along with high carb foods and fats.
By eating in the manner your body will begin to adapt to the effect of the Human Chorionic Gonadotrophin.

Burning

In this second stage of the diet you start on the very low-calorie diet and the same time take the supplements, drops or injections.
This is the fat lose stage.

Maintenance

The 3rd and final stage of the HCG diet is the maintenance stage where you are not allowed to eat starches or sugars for a certain length of time.

Atkins Diet Pros Cons

What Is The Atkins Diet


The Atkins Diet is a weight loss program that is high in fat and protein but low in carbs. If you are thinking of trying the Atkins diet plan you should check out the Atkins diet pros cons below first.

 

Created by Dr. Robert Atkins in the 70’s, the idea behind the Dr. Atkins Diet is that by cutting back drastically on the amount of carbohydrates you eat, your body will have to turn to its fat stores for fuel.

The result of this is weight loss. A low carb diet, such as this, can improve your cholesterol and your triglyceride levels which is great if you just got a high cholesterol diagnosis from your doctor.

However, there are good AND bad things about the Atkins Diet. Atkins diet pros and cons you should know before you make a decision about this diet.

Atkins Diet Pros Cons

The Pros include:

  • You get to eat steak and burgers which most men seem to love.
  • You cut back on foods like cookies, cakes and white bread. (refined carbohydrates) which are considered bad for you for many reasons.
  • You can lose quiet a lot of weight on this diet.
  • Atkins dieters often see improvements in cholesterol levels. (you eat more fat and protein but you are cutting out the white bread and foods which can also contribute to high cholesterol levels.

Cons

  • The Atkins diet does not provide adequate energy in the form of carbohydrates. The result of this cut back in carbs is the body is forced into a different metabolic state called ketosis which can be hard on the kidneys.
  • Since the focus is not on fruits and vegetables you do not get the vitamins, minerals and enzymes that these plant foods provide against cancer and heart disease.
  • Since you eat a high protein diet on the Atkins diet which means you’re risk of cancer increases from eating more meats (and because you miss out on fruits and vegetables which have cancer fighting benefits, as stated above.)
  • Your calcium levels can drop and you can become dehydrated, get bad breath or constipation problems.
  • If you ever go off of this diet and begin eating “a normal amount” of carbs again you can gain back more weight then when you started.

As you can see there are a number of Atkins diet pros cons and if you plan to try the Atkins diet plans or eat the Atkins diet menu you need to weigh the reasons you want to try it, carefully.

It can be a good short-term diet plan for weight loss, but you might want to consider switching to a more balanced diet once you lose some weight.
