F-Factor Diet

This weight loss program focuses on eating well, not eliminating food.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

The F-Factor Diet boasts its discovery of the secrets behind permanent weight loss. Purchase the F-Factor Diet book by Tanya Zuckerbrot, and you too can unlock the secret to your healthier, thinner life. The F-Factor Diet instills key principles to eating healthier during a four-week program that you can maintain for years to come. Zuckerbrot has a 10-year reputation of helping people lose weight. And now you can add your name to the roster.

The F-Factor diet will not eliminate specific foods, but instead will introduce positive foods to your diet. These ideals are centered around scientific certainties that do not waver to suit the newest trend diets.

You may be wondering what that 'F' factor is. It stands for fiber and it is the foundation of this diet. Fiber offers no calories and is not digestible. Eating foods that are high in fiber will make you feel fuller, helping you make it through the day with out inopportune hunger pangs that leave you reaching for unhealthy solutions. This high fiber diet will include heavy amounts of fruit, vegetables and grains. In addition to high fiber, you'll eat plenty of lean proteins like chicken and fish.

F-Factor also expresses the importance of journaling, implying that you're less likely to take responsibility for even the smallest of snacks if you don't have to hold yourself accountable. A nibble from a candy bowl here, a handful of chips there - it all adds up. And the scale is where the results are found. Over time, journaling will allow you to see a blueprint of your eating habits. You'll easily identify areas you need to increase, like fresh fruits and veggies perhaps, and areas where you can definitely ease up, like fast food. Most importantly, journaling will help you keep track of your fiber and carb intake as dictated in the F-Factor plan.

PRO

CON

CONCLUSION

Nothing more than someone who's using the established govt recommended daily requirements to shill for her own $$ products. She's slickly cashing in on something she didn't even create. You can get same info free on the web.

The F-Factor diet is a simple solution to weight loss AND healthy eating. Previous diets I've tried prevented me for eating the foods I wanted and I eventually began overeating and giving up on the diet. Many diets focus on eliminating important nutrients that are vital to the body but the F-Factor does the opposite, it increases the amount of fiber in the diet, while at the same time helping you to lose weight and making you feel full. Fiber is an important part of the diet that is most often eaten in inadequate amounts. The F-Factor diet book, which I bought off of Amazon, explains in detail the amount of fiber needed in the diet and the different steps involved in losing weight. I have been on the diet for 1 months and have already lost 10 pounds without changing my exercise routine (I have no time in my schedule!). Not only have I lost weight but I also feel more energized throughout the day and my digestion system has been regulated ever since. I would highly recommend this diet to anyone who wants a healthy, simple diet in order to lose weight without having to drastically change your lifestyle (you can also drink alcohol!).

This is the only diet that I've found to be an educator as well as a pound loser.
Weight Watchers and Jenny Craig might be great while you're on the diet, but they don't teach you how to chose your own healthy substitutes.

The recipes are great, the charts are great for reference, and there's so much food involved that after the initial 2 weeks on step 1 (the hardest part for me) you don't really feel like you're on a diet. It's just eating healthy with the added bonus of a losing weight.
I lost 10lbs on step 1, and I'm down another 20lbs on step 2. I started about 8 months ago so it's been a slow, but HEALTHY process.
In regards to the comment above about the bathroom, it doesn't make you go more or act like a laxative, it just makes you regular.

Hope this helps :)

I was successful in losing 4 lbs in the first 2 weeks and am now in the middle of the 4th week without losing anything more. Should I go back to week 1 and 2?

I don't know why this review says it's a four-week plan. You stay on Step1 for two weeks, then on Step 2 for as long as it takes to lose the weight you want, then Step 3 is maintenance, the way you're supposed to eat from now on.

I followed this diet for 5 months before discovering that I was pregnant. In that time, I lost 30 pounds and significantly changed my blood work for the better. My glucose level went from 107 to 88! I plan to continue following a modified F-Factor Diet plan throughout my pregnancy to keep my glucose and blood pressure within a healthy range and to go back to the weight loss levels after the baby is born. Several family members and friends have joined me in changing their eating habits and also seen health improvements and weight loss.
