The Full Diet was created by Doctor Michael Snyder a board-certified general surgeon and leader in bariatric surgery.
This program encourages you to reject the traditional diet mentality based on restriction, deprivation and extreme lifestyle changes. You will learn to work with your body so that you feel full and satisfied while eating less food.
Doctor Snyder says that losing weight isn’t complex and you can learn everything you need to know in just one week. His program is presented as a seven-day guide involving a series of lifestyle challenges.
For example one day you will learn how to structure the perfect meal. Another day you will plan your exercise routine for a week. By the end of seven days you will have put a variety of positive lifestyle factors in place.
The primary concept of The Full Diet involves using the science of fullness to your advantage. Certain foods help you feel full and satisfied with less calories, so these form the foundation of the diet.
Two options for working your way through The Full Diet:
The first option involves the use of a lot of shakes and very restrictive so it may seem too limiting or overwhelming.
If you choose the second option you will lose the same amount of weight but it will take longer.
You will consume three small meals and two or three snacks daily. All snacks should contain 5-14 grams of protein and no more than 200 calories. You will also preload lunch and dinner, with a bulky snack, to prompt the sensation of fullness, which reduces your appetite.
You are allowed two cheats each week but they must be planned 24 hours in advance. This helps to increase your awareness regarding your eating behaviors. It also allows you to indulge in your favorite treats in moderation, without feeling like you have broken the diet.
