Greene's Diet - the Basics
much as Bob Greene's diet is wide and captures effective weight loss
fairly well. It is based mainly on two premises. The first is
mitigating emotional eating and secondly increasing your metabolism
through aerobic physical exercises.
reckons "aerobic physical exercises are the primary way that
you will improve your cardio vascular (or aerobic) fitness, which in
turn will increase your metabolism.
fitness refers to the ability of your heart lungs and arteries to
deliver oxygen (which is carried in the blood) to working muscles and
your muscles ability to use that oxygen to perform work over a
particular period of time.
increasing the level of your cardio vascular fitness, you are
increasing the rate that your body can burn calories. I can't stress
how important this is!"
as an exercise physiologist this is an area of expertise. Bob Green
diet uses weight loss exercise
centrally to increase rate of fat burning. He particularly considers
power walking, jogging, aerobic dances and stair climbing as the top
four most effective exercises.
Bob Greene's diet considers emotional eating as a great contributor to
excess weight. He believes, "If you can eliminate emotional
eating you will archive weight loss success." He covers in
depth this issue and suggests tactics like keeping a journal to help
pinpoint feeling attached to overeating.
diet is divided into four phase. The first phase is mainly introductory

until phase 4. At this last phase the diet estimates you will have a
solid healthy eating plan and you can afford a full workout of strength
training and cardio. Like many other diets it is wary of alcohol
Green's diet like Dr Phil's Diet
does tackle an aspect of weight loss that is not often tackled by many
diets; the aspect of weight loss psychology. You need to
principally approach weight loss from the two weight loss sciences.
1. Physiology: This entails the
manipulation of your
body sytems to effect controlled calorie intake and increased
expenditure. Bob Greene's diet is very good with the later.
2. Psychology: This is probably
the less tackled of the
disciplines in weight loss diets. Greene's diet though not thorough
does well with emotional eating. The psychology for weight loss is an
integral part of a comprehensive weight loss plan. Infact permanent
weight loss is impossible without its inclusion in your program.
when it comes to losing body fat; particularly getting a flat stomach
or even six pack abs, you will ultimatelly need to Go Beyond Calories.
