Diets in Review - Find the Right Diet for You

Chris Powell’s “Choose to Lose” Comes Out Today

Choose to Lose book coverTrainer and self-described “Transformation Specialist” Chris Powell is releasing a book today, titled Choose to Lose: The 7-Day Carb Cycle Solution. Known for his work on the reality show Extreme Makeover, Powell tweeted yesterday that his book is “Just in time for New Year’s resolutions.”

As the title suggests, Choose to Lose does not shy away from carbs, unlike many other weight loss plans that are currently popular. Instead, the book instructs readers to cycle between high-carb days and low-carb days. According to Powell, the system allows the body to burn fat while still keeping the metabolism high.

The book also lays out a workout plan that increases in intensity over the course of 90 days. There are two types of workouts, which Powell calls “shapers” and “shredders.” Shredders are cardio workouts that are to be done six times per week, however they only take 6 minutes to do. The shaper workouts focus on strength training, and are to be done on low-carb days. At first glance, the Choose to Lose system seems complicated, however the book aims to break the process down step-by-step. The book also includes motivational tips, shopping lists and recipes.

Powell’s dieting methods have had very high-profile success on television, however, we worry that any sort of diet that involves cycling will be difficult to sustain. Additionally, many people find it difficult to maintain weight loss after they stop cycling.

Powell is also the creator of Reshape the Nation, an online weight loss program, and STAX Lifestyle Nutrition System, which is a food-storage system that’s designed to aid in portion control.

I don't understand why people are warning about some psychopathic person on this site, when I came here for a BOOK REVIEW and consumer comments!

Lydia Davison Whitcomb (born 1981, from Providence,R.I. ---not Paris, France like she claims and living in NYC) is a dangerous psychopath. She is known to file false assault and rape charges and she is a drug addict who steals. She is a liar so be very careful to keep her out of your life.
