Modifying your eating habits might be necessary to lose weight and improve your overall health and well-being. The problem with diets, however, is that simply reducing the amount you eat, and depriving yourself of calories, can hinder your progress, rather than help you achieve your goals. In a partnership with Careington International, health and fitness guru Larry North created a revolutionary system of weight loss and weight management involving succulent meal plans, informative restaurant guides, innovative exercise routines, entertaining cooking demos, and more.
The Slimdown America program allows you to enjoy eating so your body receives the healthful fuel it needs to operate efficiently. Through a typical 21-day Slimdown program, the day-by-day, step-by-step, meal-by-meal guidance serves as a template for a stronger, healthier, happier you.
Eating to Lose Weight
One of the most satisfying and pleasant surprises about the principles of our 21-Day Slimdown schedule is that you get to eat satisfying amounts of real food. Depriving your body of food will eventually lead to weight loss, but the progress will be slow, and worse, your body will sacrifice calorie-burning muscle before using deposits of fat. Without adequate muscle mass, you will be weaker, less energetic, and your resting metabolic rate will be slower. All these are triggers to regaining weight, rather than sustaining your slimmer physique.
Through extensive research and Larry North’s expertise in health and fitness, we’ve developed a system that ensures your body receives and uses the fuel it needs, without storing excessive body fat in the process. To accomplish this, you don’t have to give up eating at restaurants, or ordering your favorite foods—instead, you’ll learn new ways to prepare and order your food to realize your body’s full potential.
The secret to success isn’t perfection itself, but rather striving for it. Progress towards your goal is the cornerstone of Slimdown America’s 21-Day Program. Over the course of three weeks, Larry will guide you every step of the way with informative, inspirational daily topics, and guidance on keeping meals deliciously lean and healthy. The effective exercise routines are designed to fit comfortably into a hectic schedule. Unlike restrictive diets that rarely create lasting results, the 21-Day Slimdown eating program teaches you to use real food to maximize your body’s energy and fat burning abilities. You’ll put those abilities to the test with Larry’s comprehensive list of powerful, 60-second workouts, each of which targets a specific area of your body. With a quick minute and a little motivation, you can get and keep your body in shape without having to take significant time out of your busy day.
Sometimes you need immediate results, or an inspiration to jumpstart a new lifestyle. Maybe you want to shed that last dress or pant size before hitting the beach for the summer, or you have a wedding to attend, and you want to look your best. The 7-Day Slimdown plan is an intense course designed to help you shed a whole size in just one week. The 7-Day Slimdown requires that you prepare enough healthy foods to properly fuel your body, while eliminating alcohol, processed and sugary foods and beverages, and other empty calories. The exercise component focuses largely on muscle-building techniques to accelerate your body’s fat and calorie burning processes. Dedication to this 7-Day Slimdown will produce immediately noticeable results.
Larry knows better than anyone that a busy schedule can make it difficult or impossible to completely refrain from eating at restaurants. You can enjoy a healthy, balanced meal at most restaurants if you know what and how to order. Besides inspiration, workouts, and recipes, Slimdown America provides a restaurant guide to help you maintain your body’s optimal fuel consumption while still enjoying your favorite meals, including Italian, Chinese, and Mexican food, the occasional greasy spoon establishment, steakhouses, and more!
Mastering the art of ordering healthy meals at restaurants is pleasurable and beneficial (especially to your social life), but most of your meals should come from your own kitchen. Fortunately, healthy and well-balanced meals don’t have to be time-consuming to prepare, or bland and boring to consume. With a cooking guide full of diverse healthy meal planners, you may be surprised at what healthy eating can entail. A sample meal may include baked or mashed potatoes (or even French fries!) for carbs; Buffalo chicken feathers (a lighter version of Buffalo wings) or grilled jerk chicken for protein; and grilled Portobello mushrooms as a vegetable.
For many people, the hardest part about working out is finding the time to do it. Wouldn’t it be great if your workout lasted only a minute? Slimdown America’s innovative exercise guide is comprised of quick, 60-second energy-boosting workouts that target specific areas of the body. The workouts make sure your muscles burn the energy that you provide them. Performing a few different workouts every day will help you keep your body lean, fit, and healthy.
