The 400 Calorie Fix is a collection of recipes and dietary guidelines for weight loss. The number one rule in the book is, “Enjoy three or four 400 calorie meals… everyday… and don’t forget to snack!” Does it sound like your kind of diet? Perhaps it’s time to find out. For the last year, the book has been available only on its website but line up because it will be re-released everywhere on December 21st.
The book’s website claims that it will help you lose 11 pounds in two weeks by eating just about anything you want. The key to success with the 400 Calorie Fix is to eat 380-420 calories per meal (or snack) to keep your metabolism running at full speed. We know, for a fact, that calorie reduction is a great way to lose weight. This isn’t news to many of us, but for those of you who need an extra nudge to keep track of your calories and adapt your recipes, the 400 Calorie Fix may be just the thing! The book implements an easy-to-read star system for keeping track of nutritional content in each recipe.
The 400 Calorie Fix also includes meal options for people with special dietary needs. Whether you’re vegan, vegetarian or diabetic, the 400 Calorie Fix has recipes for you. Low-sodium and quick, convenient options are also available. Not to mention it is “researched, written and reviewed by the health experts at Prevention Magazine!”
I haven’t read the book yet, but one thing I already know I don’t like is that it claims to be, “The no-exercise, no-skimping weight loss breakthrough.” Haven’t we learned that exercise and complete diet renovations are what hold the answer for reversing our growing obesity epidemic? It seems to me that the 400 Calorie Fix is forgetting to mention some pretty crucial points.
Go ahead and take a look at the 400 Calorie Fix. You’re sure to find a great weight-loss resource, but don’t forget to include other elements of healthy-living into your life!
