Most diet programs fail because they don't address the underlying metabolic conditions that contribute to increased hunger and weight gain. In fact, they often worsen the problem by cutting calories and causing deprivation that prompts food cravings and leaves dieters hungrier--and heavier--than ever.
The Stubborn Fat Fix remedies this by identifying and treating metabolic imbalances with balanced food intake and recommended "indulgences." Based on the results of simple quizzes that uncover and individual's particular imbalances, readers choose between two eating plans, readers enjoy additive-free meat, fish, eggs, cheese, and vegetables, plus metabolism-boosting ingredients such as avocados, vegetable juice, lemon juice, olive and coconut oils. Readers with less damaged metabolisms, including those who have already made metabolic repairs using the basic plan, incorporate "luxury" foods--indulging in ice cream, salty snacks, chocolate, wine or beer, or even bread--to stay on track without feeling deprived. A tailored supplement program, carefully controlled exercise, and stress-reduction techniques complete the metabolic cure.
