A Guide to Flexible Dieting: How being less strict with your diet can make it work better

Availability: Ready to download

Rather than presenting a specific diet, A Guide to Flexible Dieting is a look at some of the psychological and physiological reasons why diets so often fail. Among these is the research demonstrated fact that individuals who are too rigid in their approach to dieting (e.g. expecting complete unyielding perfection at all times) are actually less successful in the long-run t Rather than presenting a specific diet, A Guide to Flexible Dieting is a look at some of the psychological and physiological reasons why diets so often fail. Among these is the research demonstrated fact that individuals who are too rigid in their approach to dieting (e.g. expecting complete unyielding perfection at all times) are actually less successful in the long-run than individuals who are more flexible in their approach. Building on this research, as well as looking at the physiology behind bodyweight regulation, A Guide to Flexible Dieting examines three distinct strategies that dieters can use to make their fat loss efforts more flexible. Free meals (single meals that ‘break’ the diet), refeeds (periods of deliberate high-calorie consumption) along with full diet breaks (periods of 10-14 days where active dieting is not pursued) are all discussed in detail with specific guidelines for their implementation. Dieters who find themselves falling into the trap of “I broke my diet by eating a single cookie, I should just go ahead and eat the entire bag (and another for good measure).” should read this book to see how such rigid attitudes towards dieting are ultimately both limiting and destructive to long-term success.

    Ίσως το πρώτο βιβλίο που εισήγαγε τον όρο "ευέλικτη δίαιτα". Τόσο καλή δουλειά που έχει υψηλά standard ακόμα και σήμερα

    If you are planning a long term weight loss diet and don't know much about dieting, then this booklet might be for you. Aimed mostly at regular people it can also be used by athletes. Solid information that does not pretend to be revolutionary.

    Fantastic book. Hard to underestimate the massive impact this had on the fitness community. Forever a classic.

    Rehashed info. Don't be too strict on your diet and don't completely throw in the towel if you mess up. Have a cheat meal (meal, not day) here and there when you feel like you're going crazy. Have a carb refeed day once in a while to reset your hormones. If you're stuck and nothing's moving take a diet break for two weeks. There now you don't have to read it.

    Even today you can get valuable points from this Lyle McDonald's book!

    3.5 stars. Solid information but nothing very unique, and you might hate McDonald's style. Still, one of the better general diet books available.

    Note to self - moderation is possible. All or nothing thinking is BAD news.

    EDIT: The book is extremely valuable and I couldn't notice it the first time. It sure doesn't have references to any research but if you check out the author, you will find any research you want regarding the book. OLD: Very basic stuff, nothing new... Basically, the writer is giving out recommendations, no science based or research stuff referenced. Not bad for a beginner. I liked the refeed day concept, which I will try to incorporate

    An excellent guide to keeping your sanity while dieting. I've often wondered how people manage to stay so strict on diets and this book helps to make me not think of a diet as necessary to be so OCD. It also talks about nutrition. Overall it was definitely worth the read. I now feel less guilty about cheating every once in awhile.

    Hands down THE BEST diet book out there.[return][return]Everybody talks about moderation but in the culture of excess no one is really sure exactly how much food that is. This book will help you calculate to the gram how much is a moderate amount of food for you.
