It’s Not a Diet—It’s a Way of Life
Modifying your eating habits might be necessary to lose weight and improve your overall health and wellbeing. The problem with diets, however, is that simply reducing the amount of food you eat, and depriving yourself of necessary calories in the process, can actually hinder your health and fitness goals, rather than help you achieve them. In a partnership with Careington International, health and fitness guru, Larry North, has created a revolutionary system of weight loss and management involving succulent meal plans, informative restaurant guides, innovative exercise routines, entertaining cooking demos, and more. The beauty of the Slimdown America program is that it allows you to continue enjoy eating so your body can receive the fuel it needs to operate efficiently. Though a typical Slimdown program spans only 21 days, 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 greatest things, and most pleasant surprises, about the tenants of our 21-Day Slimdown schedule is that you get to eat…A LOT! Depriving your body of food may eventually lead to you losing weight, but the progress will be slow, and worse, your body will sacrifice calorie-burning muscles over less-draining deposits of fat. Without adequate muscle mass, the results of an inadequate diet can quickly be reversed, causing you to regain the weight you lost.
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 even 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, and progress 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, as well as guides on how to keep your meals deliciously lean and healthy, and effective exercise routines that fit comfortably into your hectic schedule. Unlike diets that, by design, rarely create lasting results, the 21-Day Slimdown eating program teaches you how to use real food to maximize your body’s energy and fat burning abilities. You’ll even 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 chunks of time out of your busy day.
While Larry North’s 21-day program focuses on progress, sometimes, you may need quicker results. Maybe you want to shed that last dress or pant size before hitting the beach for the summer, or have an upcoming wedding to attend that you want to look your best for. As a variation of the three week version, the 7-Day Slimdown plan is a more intense course designed to help you shed a whole size in just one week. The 7-Day Slimdown requires that you prepare enough healthy, fat-burning foods to properly fuel your body, while eliminating alcohol, processed and sugary foods and beverages, etc. to kick up the results a notch. The exercise component also focuses largely on muscle-building techniques to accelerate your body’s fat and calorie burning processes.
Larry knows better than anyone that a busy schedule can often make it difficult or impossible to completely refrain from eating out at restaurants now and then. Though not all restaurants are advertised as the healthiest, you can still enjoy a healthy, beneficial meal at most of them if you know what and how to order it. Besides inspiration, workouts, and recipes, Slimdown America also consists of a restaurant guide to help you maintain your body’s optimal fuel consumption while still enjoying your favorite meals and restaurants, including Italian, Chinese, and Mexican restaurants, as well as greasy spoon establishments, steak houses, and many more!
Mastering the art of ordering healthy meals at most restaurants can prove immeasurably beneficial (especially to your social life), but most of your meals should come from your own kitchen. Fortunately, healthy and well-balanced don’t have to mean bland. In fact, with a cooking guide full of a diverse range of healthy meal planners, you may be surprised at what healthy eating can actually 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 only lasted a minute? Slimdown America’s innovative exercise guide is comprised of quick, 60-second energy-boosting workouts that target specific areas of the body to 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, and Larry is always there to provide inspiration to keep pushing when you need it most.
