DIET and NUTRITION

The science behind The Active Calorie Diet reveals that the types of food you will be eating require more chewing which burns more calories. These foods also take longer to digest, which is the next benefit. Since these foods take longer to digest, you burn calories during the process and stay full longer. The third component of The Active Calorie Diet foods is that they are packed with metabolism-boosting ingredients like omega-3s and monounsaturated fats which are fat busters. Lastly, these foods tend to have higher fiber content, so many of the calories pass through your system without getting a chance to turn into unwanted fat. All of this results in you being able to lose weight while you are enjoying delicious meals. This program embraces the thought that the more you eat, the more you will lose and you will not go hungry. It is important that you eat the right types of food though. Proteins are one of the most important Active Calorie foods. With The Active Calorie Diet you can actually lose nearly one pound each week even without exercise.

You also learn other secrets through this program that will help boost your metabolism and your results. One tidbit that is included is that having a quarter to one teaspoon of cinnamon taken with your meal can boost your metabolism twentyfold. The book also contains other facts on ways you can burn fat. There are also plenty of recipes and suggestions for the foods you should be eating. Below are just a few of the recipes and meals you will find in The Active Calorie Diet:
