However the true core of the program involves creating a strong social support structure in conjunction with goal setting and techniques for maintaining motivation.
Body by Design asserts that contrary to popular opinion, fitness success does not come from “doing the right number of reps, burning the correct number of calories, or eating the perfect amount of protein.” Kris Gethin cites new research revealing that the secret to attaining true fitness is connecting to a proven system of motivational support. Dieters can find this support by joining “BodySpace”, the popular online community associated with his website, Bodybuilding.com.
In Body By Design, dieters are introduced to “The Four Pillars of Power”, which, according to Kris Gethin, provide the key to long-term success.
Body By Design includes a 12-week fitness program and practical details regarding how to eat to transform your body. The dietary recommendations involve eating six small meals a day, each containing a palm-sized portion of lean protein, a palm-sized carbohydrate source, a fist-sized portion of vegetables and a tablespoon of a condiment.
You also should drink a gallon of water a day and add nutritional supplements that boost performance and muscle recovery. Foods to be avoided include sugars, refined grains, fruit, yogurt, milk, nuts, avocado, legumes, oils and alcohol.
