Formerly known as Weight Loss 4 Idiots (they changed their name in May 2005), Fat Loss 4 Idiots is a web based diet program that claims you can lose 9lbs of fat in 11 days.
This weight loss program has been used by thousands around the world and remains one of the most popular diet plans for its simplicity, practicality and affordabilty.
As there are more than 40 foods to choose from and you eat 4 meals a day, this weight loss program is a food lover’s weight loss system. And since it is web based, you can download this diet plan instantly.
What Is It?
After joining Fat Loss 4 Idiots, you’ll be taken to the main screen that gives you access to a diet handbook that gives you the “10 Idiot Proof Rules Of Weight Loss” as well as a Diet Generator.
In summary, here are those 10 rules:
- Manipulate your caloric intake
- Eat frequent meals – 4 meals a day, spread 2½ hours apart
- Prepare your meals at home
- Rotate your carbs & protein meals every day
- Keep your meals plain (little or no condiments)
- Know when to stop eating
- Only consume certain drinks
- Drink lots of water
- Get some exercise (eg, walking)
- Avoid sweets
Once you access the Diet Generator, you’ll be given 2 choices – Regular or Vegetarian (see box below). You’ll have to go through a short multiple choice session where you pick out 30 of your favorite foods (from a list of more than 40).
These 30 foods will then be used to make up your 11 daily meal plans (of 4 meals a day).
After the 11 days are up, you can ‘cheat’ for 3 days where you can eat ANYTHING you want.
If you choose the vegetarian option, many of the meat products are substituted for soy products (e.g., soy chicken, soy beef…etc).
Also, there’ll be a higher proportion of nuts consumed, like macadamia, walnuts, and unsalted peanuts.
There’s no calorie or carb counting and you’re to eat to just “short of being full”.
And what foods are these?
Lean proteins, fruits & vegetables. Also, some starchy carbs like oatmeal & pasta.
Mono and poly-unsaturated fats will come from the mixed nuts & cottage cheese while saturated fats will come from the eggs & the chicken breasts.
You’re also allowed 1 glass of wine per day.
How much does it cost?
$39 for 90 day access to the Fat Loss 4 Idiots website.
Considering that other diet plans charge about $10-$15 a week, this successful weight loss program is value for money. To sweeten the deal, it also comes with a 56 day money back guarantee.
How About Exercise?
Not really emphasized but recommends some form of exercise like brisk walking.
Fat Loss 4 Idiots is a budget diet. Basically, it’s a reduced carb diet that cycles macro-nutrient ratios to try and trick your metabolism before your body catches on.
So what are the benefits of Fat Loss 4 Idiots again?
- The Online Diet Generator automatically computes everything for you so you don’t have to guess what to eat on a daily basis and count the number of calories that you’re supposed to be eating;
- NO diet pills required to lose weight;
- You get fantastic bonus information like how to drink alcohol while burning fat, how to eat out and order food at restaurants, how to shop at the grocery store…etc;
- Since this is a lifestyle approach to weight loss, it’s a safe and effective way to lose weight naturally.
Fat Loss 4 Idiots turned out better than expected – it is a do-able diet and you should be able to get the idea of the whole diet in about 15 to 20 minutes as there is nothing complicated about the whole thing.
Fat Loss 4 Idiots is NOT a scam – using the diet myself, although the website claims that you can lose 9lbs in 11 days, I lost just 7lbs in that period of time (but I’m not complaining!).
From feedback that I’ve heard from friends who are also on this diet plan, you’ll be able to lose more weight if you add in some moderate exercise 2 to 3 times a week (like brisk walking) although this is not necessary on this diet.
As it is affordable, practical and easy to follow, Fat Loss 4 Idiots is highly recommended as it provides a safe & healthy way to lose weight naturally.
