Weight Loss 4 Idiots – A Calorie Shifting Diet

There has been a lot of hype around calorie shifting recently in the world of weight loss. Calorie shifting is quickly becoming a regular weight loss term to describe a type of diet that is intended to increase your body’s metabolism naturally. The concept of calorie shifting has been present in many fad diets over the years, but has been made very popular by the Weight Loss 4 Idiots diet.

Weight Loss 4 Idiots Diet, also known as “Fat Loss 4 Idiots” is an online diet. It can be adapted to accommodate vegetarians as well as some of your basic likes and dislikes of foods. Once this information has been entered, you will be provided with an 11-day diet plan. During this diet plan you will be given simple meals to prepare and eat 4 times a day. Each meal ranges in calorie content, carbs and fats. You are also supposed to eat each meal at different times of the day throughout the week. All this fluctuation in eating times and calories per meal is the basis of their “calorie-shifting” diet. It is said that by shifting your calorie intake around all the time, your body will be forced to burn calories at a higher rate.

Although most of the foods in the Weight Loss 4 Idiots diet are low-carb and low-fat, there are no portion controls. You are supposed to eat as much of the food listed for a meal, such as cottage cheese, until you are satiated, but not stuffed. For this reason, people find the Fat Loss 4 Idiots pretty “idiot-proof” because there is no calorie counting and measuring of food. The diet also recommends that you walk for at least 30 minutes each day.

Weight Loss 4 Idiots boasts on their website “Lose 9lbs in 11 days”. I was intrigued by a diet that doesn’t have portion control, and was skeptical of the results they claim, so I looked around online for reviews. I found many, many people who are having success with this diet, mostly women. Although a few people did lose 9 lbs in the first 11 days, weight loss typically began to decrease as the weeks went on.

The pros for this diet is that it is simple to follow, gives you 3 cheat days every 11 days, and encourages daily exercise. The con for this diet is that it is low in fruits and vegetables and very high in protein, which can be hard on the body.

Does Weight Loss 4 Idiots and calorie-shifting work as a diet? I see evidence that there are a number of people who are having short-term success with losing weight on this diet. My biggest concern is that this diet is not teaching you how to eat properly for long-term weight loss and weight management. Smaller portions, a healthy balanced diet and regular exercises that include cardio are essential in developing a healthier lifestyle and are not a part of this diet plan.
