About The Fat Resistance Diet
Developed by the father and son team of Dr. Galland and Jonathan Galland, the recipes and meal plans take healthy eating to a new level. Our goal was to provide fantastic dishes that combine the art of fine dining with the science of nutritional medicine. It is an all-natural plan that is rich in phytonutrients, fiber and healthy omega-3 fats. The diet plans in our book were designed to work for people in the real world with easy to prepare meals that are enjoyable.
Stage 1: Rapid Weight Loss
Stage One provides for rapid weight loss by aggressively targeting and reducing your inflammation. Abundant superfoods make this happen, which means 9-10 servings of fruit and vegetables a day, plus generous servings of protein. This high level of nutrition will dramatically improve your body chemistry, lowering your insulin levels and allowing you to shed that stubborn extra weight. Sugar and starch cravings will disappear after 2 or three days, and by the end of this stage you will be on your way to successful weight loss.
Stage 2: Long Term Weight Loss
Stage Two expands the range of superfood choices, making it ideal for long term weight loss. The meal plan is designed to allow you to comfortably lose 2 pounds per week, and to continue with this plan until you have reached your target weight. After completing Stage One, your insulin levels should have decreased, allowing you to introduce grains such as oatmeal and brown rice, and increase the use of beans, which are very high in antioxidants and also provide protein. What does all this mean for you? Now you get to enjoy lots of new recipes such as Omega Blast Granola, Ginger Lime Grilled Tuna, Insalata Fagioli, and Pineapple Orange Granita while you continue moderate weight loss. Sounds good? That's the idea. Because we knew we had to make the food delicious.
Stage 3: The Ultimate Maintenance Program
Stage Three is the ultimate maintenance program. The superfoods that helped you lose weight in Stage One and Stage Two are back to keep inflammation down, allowing you to maintain your target weight. What's more, these foods can make you look and feel younger, help prevent cancer, boost your immune system and keep you healthy. With whole grain breads and pastas, this stage offers meals that are fun and easy to prepare. Recipes such as Blueberry Flax Pancakes, Carrot Raisin Muffins, and Shrimp Scampi with Linguine make following the Stage Three Meal Plan a pleasure. Because the emphasis is on variety and choice, we have included here, as in the earlier stages, vegetarian meals, such as Minestrone Rustica and Vegetarian Curry.
