DIET and NUTRITION

2 Weeks in the Fast Lane Diet offers an abundance of foods that will help you maximize your results and lose weight all over. The book encourages a diet that is high in calcium to strengthen your bones and help you lose weight. Some of the suggested sources of calcium include various cheeses, Greek yogurt, broccoli, spinach, salmon and various green herbs and vegetables. Other nutrients that you should increase are omega 3’s, fermentable carbohydrates, spices and foods that boost your dopamine levels. Many will be excited to find that 2 Weeks in the Fast Lane Diet allows alcohol and caffeine in manageable amounts as well. In addition to eating the right foods, you are encouraged to get more sex, sleep and sunshine for weight loss benefits. There are foods given that specifically boost testosterone levels, help aid in sleep and those that are rich in vitamin D which is also what the sun is full of.

2 Weeks in the Fast Lane Diet recommends that you eat every two to three hours to keep your body in fat burning mode throughout the day. While on the program, you are advised to limit your starchy carbohydrates to before 6 p.m. only. Below is a day of eating reflected while following the 2 Weeks in the Fast Lane Diet:

  • Morning: Fresh fruits, juiced fruits, fruit smoothies and fresh fruit juices
  • Mid-morning: Small pack of unsalted nuts
  • Lunch: Beef broth with pearl barley or lamb and bean soup; salad
  • Mid-afternoon: Ryvita and chopped egg
  • Dinner: Fish filets Thai-style or very quick salmon; vegetable and salad (add in starchy vegetable if you exercised in the evening)
  • Late snack: Oatcakes and turkey slices

There are plenty of recipes included in the book as well as options for making snacks and meals that are easily prepared. Everything you need to prepare for eating any type of meal is included in the book.

EXERCISE

For the optimal exercise plan, 2 Weeks in the Fast Lane Diet recommends resistance training to help you shed body fat in the most efficient way. You can use weights, dumbbells or your own body weight to achieve your resistance training workouts. The general suggestion is to do this for 30 to 40 minutes three times per week, giving the muscles a day of rest between workouts. Another element of your workout plan should be interval training. This type of training involves intense effort for one minute followed by less intense effort for between one and four minutes. This is repeated multiple times throughout your workout for a total of about 30 minutes. You can do interval training on the days that you are not weight training. There are tips and pointers included for those that are not used to exercise or need to start slowly. Thirty minutes of daily activity is recommended while on the 14 day program.

CONCLUSION

2 Weeks in the Fast Lane Diet offers solid advice that will help you lose weight whether you are just getting started or trying to lose the last few pounds. This book provides great information on both diet and exercise. With detailed meal plans drawn out for you over 14 days, you can’t go wrong if you follow the plan.
