Created by Chelsea Handler’s nutritionist and the Venice Nutrition founder Mark Macdonald, the Body Confidence Diet is a diet book that focuses on three primary steps to help you reach your weight loss goals. The three steps are as follows:
There is a nutritional plan outlined within this book helping you to ensure that you are getting the right amounts of calories and nutrients in each of your meals. You will begin eating as soon as you wake up in the morning and then every few hours (three to four) after that. Some foods that are permitted include apples, strawberries, bananas, chicken breast, tuna, salmon, egg whites, oatmeal, whole grains, broccoli, potatoes, etc.
For the most part, there are no restrictions on what you can’t eat; however, you do still need to consider portion and nutrient sizes otherwise you’ll get off track.
Mr. Macdonald believes that the way to successful long-term weight loss is to stabilize the body’s blood sugar levels and that’s exactly what he works toward in this diet book. The reason he believes this is because when your blood sugar levels are stabilized, your body won’t store fat helping you to burn calories, maintain lean muscle while losing weight.
Body Confidence also includes information regarding exercise with specific interest in cardio as well as strength training. You’ll basically start with the cardio, which will burn fat, and then add in strength training later down the road. Depending on the weight loss goals you are looking to achieve, there will be different options including core exercises for you to consider in terms of exercise, which is all outlined in Body Confidence.
