The 5 Factor Diet was written by Harley Pasternak, a fitness trainer. Harley is known for his fitness training of celebrities.
How Does It Work?
Pasternak claims that the 5 Factor Diet is not a diet, it is a lifestyle. The diet is based on the number FIVE, five meals at five minutes prep time each, and five segments of five minute exercises five times per week. The premise is that five meals per day will keep you satisfied, help you to maintain a stable and low blood sugar level, give you energy all day, and help your mood.
The Five Promises:
Westgate Town Center Orlando
The 5 Factor 5 Stage Workout
Each stage is 5 minutes in duration (total 25 minutes):
A 5 Factor Diet Meal Sample
You can eat anything you want on your once a week 'cheat day', otherwise you need to adhere to the five food group guidelines. The diet focuses on portion control, lower calories, and appetite control, all important ingredients for weight loss success.
Does It Work?
Yes. Healthy eating and exercise should help you to lose weight.
Although a 5 week program, this diet can work long term
Meals are relatively quick and easy
No added food cost
No supplements needed
A cheat day gives needed flexibility
Calorie counting is not necessary
Exercise is included
Lower sugar levels
Lower risk of heart disease
Celeb success does not equal real life success
Higher protein may be an issue for kidney patients, see your doctor.
Organization and motivation are needed
Exercise does not follow Heart Association guidelines, see your doctor.
I consider diets that offer flexibility, such as a cheat day, to be easier to stay on. The meal preparation simplicity and prep time are also a plus. You should always see your health care provider before making any decisions that may affect your health. the higher protein level and the exercise level may present a problem for some folks. I feel that this diet is worthy of your consideration and give it a thumbs up.
Thank you for reading, My friends, I wish you success on your weight loss journey.
