DOUBLE Your Fatloss Today (Make These 2 Simple “Switches”)

When you were back in elementary school, you probably learned all about the Food Pyramid.  Somehow though, decades later, the food pyramid remained almost identical to what it was back then.

Grains, consisting of breads, cereal, rice, and pasta, formed the base of the food pyramid.  According to the USDA, for a period of nearly 20 years, more than 50% of your diet was supposed to come from carbohydrates.

Bad advice.  FATTENING advice.

Unfortunately, government agencies and the US education system are very slow to accept new research and make the necessary changes to their recommendations.

4 Food GroupsBut today, we applaud them.  You see, the recommendations of the recently released and updated government nutrition guidelines, the “My Plate” system, actually AREN’T absurd.

Now, the USDA is recommending that 50% of the diet come from fruits and vegetables and a more moderate 30% from grains.

And despite the bone-head “nutritionists” who seem to think that protein is unnecessary, the USDA’s My Plate system increases protein from virtually non-existent in their previous recommendations to 20% of the diet.

So, leaps and bounds above the archaic Food Pyramid… but, it still has issues.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

How We’d Make the My Plate System Better

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Although the My Plate system is a dramatic improvement over the old recommendations, it still has quite a few shortcomings.

First, the My Plate system has no real place for healthy fats like nuts, oils, and organic dairy products like butter and cream, etc. Healthy fats are a critical part of any diet, and certainly not “sparingly” as the old pyramid recommended. Make sure you are getting your fair share (about 25% of calories).

Next, we’d decrease grains down to 15%.  Really, there are only 2 meals a day where we think you should even consider eating grains, and that’s your first meal (breakfast) and the meal after your workout as it’s these two times of day that research has proven glucose tolerance and insulin sensitivity to be highest.

Next, we’d increase protein intake from 20% to at least 35%.  There are SO many benefits to increasing protein intake, such as an increased thermic effect of feeding (i.e. you burn more calories just by eating more protein), better blood sugar control, a decrease in body fat, and an increase in calorie-burning lean muscle.

Simply by decreasing your grain intake while simultaneously increasing your body’s ability to process carbohydrates, along with increasing your overall protein consumption, you’ll be well on your way to DOUBLING your fat loss results.

  1. If I’m doing the one day diet could I also use the leptiburn pills?

    • Hello Lindsey,

      Thanks so much for reaching out to us! It is truly our privilege to provide you with honest and research-driven health information.

      You most certainly can take LeptiBurn while following the One Day Diet. We recommend you take two capsules upon waking up and two capsules mid-afternoon. If you have your first meal of the day at noon, you can either take your second dose 30 minutes before noon or about three hours after your feeding.

      The effectiveness of LeptiBurn is not reliant on eating within 30 minutes. Quite the contrary — we recommend waiting at least 30 minutes to eat after dosing with LeptiBurn in order to give the ingredients time to absorb. So, taking LeptiBurn on an empty stomach and going right into your fast should result in no adverse effects.

      I hope this helps, Lindsey. Please let us know if you need further assistance.

      Sincerely,

      Brian Murray

  2. Hi,
    Due to the medication I must take approximately 12 hours appart for the several conditions that I have. Must have food to eat with the medication or will develop gastric ulcers. @ Present use a milkshake in first around 5:45 AM and then one @ Noon and meal around 5:15PM. Will I still achieve the effects you mention in the One day diet?

    • Hi Evelyn,

      Thank you so much for reaching out to us and for offering us the opportunity to help you. Arguably, part of the effectiveness of the One Day Diet is the intermittent fasting component. Here are some of the benefits:

      REDUCED:

      blood lipids (triglycerides, cholesterol)
      blood pressure
      inflammation
      oxidative stress
      risk of cancer

      INCREASED:

      cellular turnover and repair
      fat burning
      growth hormone release
      metabolic rate

      IMPROVED:

      appetite control
      blood sugar control
      cardiovascular function
      effectiveness of chemotherapy
      neurogenesis

      That being said, it’s completely understandable that you have to adapt the plan to meet your medical needs. My suggestion would be to try the plan as you’ve outlined for 2 – 4 weeks to see how it will work for you. Overall, if you keep the food choices, amounts, etc., the same, you should still achieve the results that you desire.

      Please keep us posted with your progress, Evelyn. We’re here to help and happy to do so. I also encourage you to visit the BioTrust Online Community as an additional resource and for free coaching assistance.

      Thanks, Evelyn!

  3. I just read the 1 day every day diet, the one you fast until noon but what if I am hypoglicemic? That one eats every few hours.

    • Hi Rebecca,

      Thanks so much for reaching out to us and for offering us the opportunity to help you. It is truly our privilege to be your resource for honest nutrition and health information.

      Before beginning any nutrition or exercise program, we recommend that you consult with your physician for proper approval. That being said, the One Day Diet is one of many options available for you to help you achieve your health and fitness goals. While there are folks like yourself who have successfully implemented and followed this way of eating, it can be adapting to meet your individual needs if you are concerned about your blood sugar dropping too low.

      As it is written, the diet plan suggests a 6-hour eating window (e.g., 12p – 6p). However, you could extend this further, using the same structure, if you like. For example, you could have your first smoothie at 10am, your second at 2pm, then your dinner at 6pm. If you needed something between meals, then you could opt for some veggies or a portion of protein (from the choices listed in the manual).

      If this is still concerning to you, you could take the structure of the plan and carry it out according to your normal feeding hours. That is, you could have a smoothie at 8am, one at 1pm, and then a meal at 6pm. Again, ideal snacks between meals, if needed, would veggies and protein portions from the lists provided. While there certainly is some power behind the science of intermittent fasting, it may not be applicable to everyone.

      If this still does not fit your needs, then you may consider an approach like the Fat Burning Hormone Diet.

      I hope this helps, Rebecca!
