The Last 15 is a weight loss plan created by Dr. Joey Shulman, registered nutritionist and founder and CEO of Shulman Weight Loss Clinics. This program is designed to help you say goodbye to quick fix diets that are overly restrictive so that you can let go of those last 10 to 15 pounds forever.
Shulman discovered that a combination of physical, emotional and psychological factors need to be addressed to create long-lasting sustainable weight loss. By following the principles outlined in the book you can lose up to 15 pounds in the first month, achieve your weight loss goals and keep the weight off for good.
Shulman asserts that The Last 15 is a set of principles – not a program – that will allow you to achieve your ideal weight in a healthy and timely fashion. You will learn how to boost your metabolism and reset your metabolic code in just thirty days by following ten simple steps.
Protein is emphasized because it supports muscle growth, immunity, and hormonal function. Additionally 25-30% of the calories from protein are burned in the digestive process. Every meal should include 30-50 grams of protein and every snack should have 5-10 grams of protein.
Carbohydrates are allowed but low glycemic foods should be preferred such as oatmeal, bran cereal and berries. Each week you are allowed to choose two treats – one glass of red wine, three small squares of dark chocolate or an extra portion of whole grains.
