LeBootCamp: 4 Steps to Lose
A diet can only work long-term if new healthy practices are integrated gradually and comfortably into one's lifestyle; for this reason The Food Lover’s Diet™ is structured into 4 phases:
Detox: Although the body is naturally equipped to cleanse itself, it is sometimes necessary to help it expel toxins generated by significant stress, chemicals absorbed, and previously unhealthy dieting. Hence, in our first phase we focus on eating foods recognized by the medical profession as helpful for the body to excrete toxins, among these, watercress, apple, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, broccoli, garlic, grapefruit, etc., with the ultimate goal of eating more healthily without deprivation. Fitness-wise, we start a 30-minute daily walk which also boosts our body to lose the initial excess weight. Discover a surge of energy during this phase, starting your days off with naturally proven detox drinks to bring you an amazing complexion and a flat tummy, including freshly squeezed lemon juice, and the celebrated buckwheat grain tea, Soba Cha.
We attack the extra stubborn weight that is most difficult to lose. Your 30-minute daily walk is now second nature, and we've begun integrating fun and easy 25th Hour™ exercises into daily activities (think contracting your abs while on the phone). The weekly menus have become more diversified, dotted with a detox day or two once in a while to keep you looking and feeling great. With constant support, we work on rebalancing your body as you slim down at a healthy pace.
Reached your dream body? We're halfway through the journey with the toughest challenge remaining: to stabilize for life. To avoid the typical yoyo-ing of weight regain, the goal during this phase is to maintain this newly achieved equilibrium; identify obstacles that may challenge our ideal weight; answer any questions which arise during this stabilization period; and finally, learn to fly with our own wings. This period is critical because it guarantees long-term success.
Defense: Learn how to defend yourself against healthy living saboteurs lurking everywhere: fad diets, new gurus, the latest miracle products, etc. You've shed the excess weight and you're ready to enjoy your new body in a world of temptation - but now you know that you can have that chocolate mousse and still look amazing.
Formal LeBootCamp Study
From September 2009 to February 2010, a study was conducted to evaluate the results of 800 women who followed LeBootCamp for 6 months.
The sample was divided into two groups of 400 people: Group 1 for a cholesterol study and Group 2 for a glyecmia control study.
After 1 month on the LeBootCamp program, the average weight loss for both groups – besides for improvements in glycemia control and cholesterol levels – was 13 lbs.
