If you ask the average person if they’d like to lose weight, most of them would say yes, because most of us could stand a few pounds. If you ask them how much trouble they’d be willing to go to in order to lose weight, then you’ll start to get different answers. Lots of people would like to shed a few pounds, but not if it means having to exercise a lot or go on overly restrictive diets.
Anthony Alayon has a book called Anti Diet Solution that he says will allow you to lose weight without having to engage in excessive workouts or go on starvation diets. You won’t need to go ‘low carb” or take piles of diet pills, either. OK, that sounds like something that would interest a lot of people as most people aren’t interested in any of those things but still want to lose weight. I decided to take a closer look to see what Anti Diet Solution is all about. Is Anti Diet Solution a scam?
Anti Diet Solution Overview
and download it immediately, at any time of day, and you can read it on many devices, including tablets and smartphones.
The book also includes several bonus books:
• The 28 Day Fast Start Diet
• The Anti Diet Solution Enzyme Rich Slimming Food Guide
• 50 Natural Health Cures That Protect Your Body From Disease and Reverse Aging
• The primary components of the Anti Diet Solution program are the main book and the 28 Day Fast Start Diet. The main Anti Diet Solution book is a 45 page PDF book that explains why we gain weight and why many of the methods that people try in order to lose weight don’t work.
The book is divided into the following chapters:
• Chapter #1: The Personal Trainer Who Helped a Grandmother Lose 84 Pounds • Chapter #2: Good Bacteria vs. Bad Bacteria in Foods
• Chapter #3: Good Foods vs Bad Foods
• Chapter #4: How Your Body’s Metabolism Works to Burn Calories • Chapter #5: How Eating a Good Diet Can Help You Avoid Diseases • Chapter #6: Cheat Meals
• Chapter #7: Exercises That Can help Burn Fat • Chapter #8: Summary and Conclusion
The author explains, with some justification, that many people are overweight because they have an imbalance of “good” and “bad” bacteria in their digestive system. There are some scientific studies that have confirmed this, and a large portion of the Anti Diet Solution is about explaining how you will benefit if you can get more “good” bacteria into your digestive system to replace some of the “bad” bacteria.
The next section of the Anti Diet Solution book discusses good and bad foods and why you should be eating certain kinds of foods and avoiding others. While the book
discusses the bacteria issue at length, it also points out that certain types of sugars and carbs aren’t overly healthy, and that you should be eating a diet with lean protein, lots of vegetables and fiber and only consuming “natural” or “organic” foods, rather than those that have been heavily processed or treated with pesticides.
The Anti Diet Solution book also discusses how doing excessive cardio exercises may not help you lose weight, and that you should be engaging instead in short interval, high intensity training exercises instead. I’m seeing a lot of this in weight loss programs
these days, and the trend in the industry seems to be moving towards high intensity workouts that are brief in duration.
That’s good, because most people aren’t interested in lengthy workouts, assuming that they’re interested in working out at all. The Anti Diet Solution book discusses the types of exercises that will be beneficial, as well as those that likely won’t be.
The second component of the Anti Diet Solution program is the 28 Day Fast Start Diet book, which outlines a 28 day meal plan that’s loaded with the foods that the author says will help you lose weight. The recipes are included, and most of them appear to be easy to prepare and look as though they won’t require you to purchase (or consume) any odd, weird, or difficult-to-locate items.
Recipes in the 28 Day Fast Start Diet book include:
Tomato and Kale Salad with Hummus Quinoa and Potato Pilaf
Tofu with Steamed Broccoli Kale Salad with Chicken
You’ll notice that the meals are heavy on leafy greens and relatively light on meat. Each day’s meal plan includes breakfast, lunch and dinner, along with a mid-morning snack, a mid-day snack, and a pre bed time snack. Most of the breakfasts involve smoothies, which are tasty and filling and easy to prepare.
While the diet plan looks to be a healthy one, the problem I had with the Anti Diet Solution program is that the main book primarily offers a list of things that the author says will help you lose weight without actually providing you with a specific list of things to do. In my experience, most people who buy these sorts of books simply want a set of instructions, rather than a lesson on gut bacteria or a discussion of the relative merits of cardio training versus high intensity training.
Those discussions are worth having, but I think most buyers of weight loss programs would prefer a book that simply said “These exercises will help. Do them on the
following schedule.” The Anti Diet Solution book does not offer this, or anything like it. It will be up to you to figure out how to create your own workout routine.
That said, the diet plan looks healthy, and if you follow it for 28 days and engage in some regular exercise, you’ll probably lose weight with it.
Well written book that cites sources for the information in it Diet plan is easy to follow
The plan lacks a set of instructions for readers to follow One of the bonus books isn’t really related to weight loss Many upsells
Anti Diet Solution Summary
While the Anti Diet Solution program isn’t a scam, and the author appears to know his stuff, it’s not going to be for everyone. Many readers are simply looking for a set of instructions to follow and you won’t find that here. You will find a sensible diet and a good explanation for why you should eat the foods that the author recommends and why you should avoid others. The book does mention exercise, but doesn’t dwell on it, nor does it recommend a specific workout routine.
