The 3-1-2-1 Diet: Eat and Cheat Your Way to Weight Loss--Up to 10 Pounds in 21 Daysby Dolvett Quince
Synopses & Reviews
This 21-day program works by manipulating your body's natural tendency to slow its metabolic rate in response to calorie restriction. It takes a new approach to getting lean--one scientifically based on changing up food and calories to tap into your body's potential to burn fat. This unconventional plan results in greater muscle and less fat than any other diet you've ever tried.
Dolvett's effective eating plan is as easy as 3-1-2-1: three days of clean eating, one day of cheating, two more days of clean eating, and one final reward meal at the end of the week. No foods are off limits and you will never feel deprived because the plan is flexible enough to fit into any lifestyle. You'll lose weight fast--10 pounds or more in just 21 days--and you won't plateau.
Dolvett's simple meal plans and delicious, easy-to-prepare recipes, together with his fast and effective workouts that combine cardio and body-shaping moves, will have you back in your skinny jeans in less than three weeks!
"A personal trainer and stalwart member of NBC's The Biggest Loser team, Quince offers up his 'unconventional' plan for dropping pounds — quickly — with his first book. He promises that by alternating 'clean' and 'cheat' days (in a 3-1-2-1 ratio) and following his 48-minute workout, four times a week, readers can see substantial changes in just three weeks. 'Cheating,' declares Quince, is the key to the plan's success, with 48 hours of each week allowing for greater caloric intake, and indulgences such as ice cream and pizza, thereby satisfying physical and psychological cravings, as well as upping metabolism. The program — one that Quince has used to help clients reach optimal fitness levels — is refreshingly straightforward, with detailed menus and recipes; at-a-glance lists of foods to embrace or avoid; easy-to-follow exercises, and suggestions for 'fun' fat-burning and cardio-boosting activities; and tips for adapting the plan as you transition to its maintenance phase. Advice on supplements, and how to handle travel, holiday, and workplace temptations, are also provided. Much of what Quince has to say — like how to fill your plate proportionally with 'smart' carbs, protein, and fiber, combining cardio with weight training for the strongest results, and sanctioned cheating — will be familiar to most readers, but Quince's plan is both sound and appealing.
