Fat Loss 4 Idiots is currently the most sold fat loss and dieting ebook on the internet. It claims that you can lose 9lb every 11 days. Keep reading to find out if fat loss 4 idiots actually works.
The website looks quite funny with some cartoon style pictures. And I normally don’t like to be titled as “idiot”. So my first impression: is this fat loss program just a joke or really serious?
I continued to read through the site where they mention four well known weight loss techniques that don’t work. And that’s exactly what I experienced. I tried many low fat food and low carb plans without success. I clicked trough the sites and found many interesting and provoking statements.
Who is behind Fat Loss 4 Idiots?
Normally the first thing I like to know - who is the author and expert of a fat loss program. In this case it’s unknown, there’s no name or company mentioned on their home page.
Normally this smells like a scam… But, let’s find out what fat loss 4 idiots is actually about.
What is Fat Loss For Idiots about?
The main concept behind Fat Loss 4 Idiots is a theory called “shifting calories”. It works as follows: Your eating habits define how your body burns calories. Your body anticipates that you’ll eat the same combination of foods in the coming days and weeks. If you are breaking this habit by eating different foods every day your metabolism starts burning more calories. This sounds logical in theory, but how does it work in real life?
The second part of the fat loss for idiots program is an online diet generator. It creates a personal diet plan after you input your weight goals and the type of food you prefer. In seconds you receive a detailed eating plan for the next 11 days using the shifting calories approach. This step is really simple and can be performed with a few clicks. There’s a separate diet generator for vegetarians.
Here’s an example of two menu plans which contains only whole foods:
Meal 1: Scrambled Eggs
Meal 2: Chicken
Meal 3: Mixed Nuts
Meal 4: Sandwich (any type)
Meal 1: Chicken
Meal 2: Fruit Salad
Meal 3: Fish Fillet
Meal 4: Cottage Cheese
What are the results?
This is a low carb diet that tries to trick your metabolism by changing your food habits daily. The principle behind this diet works and thousands of people successfully lost fat using it.
Losing 9 pounds every 11 days is a little over exaggerated. Yes I know that some people lose that much weight but it is mostly water retention. I did lose a fair amount of weight with this technique, but it took a little longer than 11 days. And after a few weeks it’s getting harder to lose that much weight after the initial effect. The program helps to learn the basics of losing fat efficiently. If you use these techniques you should see good results after 20-30 days.
-You can start dieting in less than 15 minutes without reading lots of instructions
- No need to count calories
- Simple to use
- Cheap menus
- No known experts behind the plan - author is anonymous
- claim of losing 9lbs per 11 weeks is probably hyped up
- No workouts and cardio program included
What is the Final Verdict?
If you want to start losing weight quickly with a simple diet plan then Fat Loss 4 Idiots is a solid fat loss program that I recommend. Although I didn’t lose 9lbs every 11 weeks I saw remarkable results after 20 days. I like how simple it is to use. You can start losing weight in less than 15 minutes. The price of the ebook is $39 and considering that it comes with an online diet generator it’s a good value.
If you’re looking for strengthening your abs as well with a program where a nutrition plan is accompanied by workouts and cardio training I recommend you have a look at Truth About Six Pack Abs by Mike Geary. You can read a review and see my results with it here.
But if you just want to chose the lazy route without workouts and cardio training then Fat Loss 4 Idiots is a very good start to lose fat fast.
