Stop yo-yo dieting with a proven program for women’s weight loss. The Flat Belly Solution, created by certified nutritionist, Isabel De Los Rios, has helped thousands of women get off roller-coaster diets, stabilize their blood sugar levels, and discover how to keep fat off forever.
The term, “yo-yo dieting” was first brought to awareness by Kelly D. Brownell, Ph.D. – Professor and Chair of Psychology (Director of the Yale Center for Eating and Weight Disorders at Yale University) as a way to clarify the up-and-down cycle of dieters. Dr. Brownell’s research group found women initially losing large amounts of weight when they started a diet, but subsequently regaining it (and gaining back EVEN MORE!) when they found they could not maintain the program.
After many weeks, while dealing with the emotions of feeling discouraged about their appearance, and feeling like a failure because of quitting their diet, they wold start a new diet…and the cycle would repeat. Consequently, Dr. Brownell coined the term, “Yo-Yo dieting.”
What’s behind this alarming rate of failure? Let’s review the facts.
Reasons Why Diets Fail And Cannot Be Sustained
- Women would start hypocaloric diets that were far too extreme in the initial phase.
- Caloric intake remained much lower than necessary.
- Entire food groups (like carbs or fats) were eliminated from certain novelty diets.
- Complicated calculation/measuring of okinawa flat belly tonic macro-nutrient portions, or counting calories takes a lot of time.
- There was no inclusion of moderate exercise to stimulate metabolic response.
When diets are too restrictive or controlling, your system starts screaming “Save the fat!” because it is in starvation mode. Those on the diet become fatigued and depression can set in. Cravings become overwhelming and dieters revert right back to their old eating habits…except now they experience the “famine response”…and actually overeat, to satisfy both the physical and emotional lack. To make matters worse, more fat is gained, changing the fat-to-muscle ratio that is so important for good health.
So how is the Flat Belly Solution different?
Well, Isabel explains that on page 7 of her book when she states: “People don’t need another diet book; they need to change their lifestyles. They don’t need to be told how and why to go on a diet; they need to learn how to change their eating habits and their thinking for life.”
The Flat Belly Solution has become a premiere weight loss program for women because they do NOT view it as a diet. Instead, Isabel’s simple nutritional principles are seen by women as a comprehensive and concrete blueprint for creating meaningful, life-long changes to their eating habits that will effectuate a more positive lifestyle.
