Day 8 on Isabel Del Los Rios’s The Diet Solution Program is done and over with.
Another really easy day.
Just sticking to controlling my portions and eating according to my metabolic type (which I determined as part of the program).
Only had one temptation yesterday and that was the gigantic bag of candy that my boyfriend got from his parents for Easter.
I indulged in one raspberry creme egg. It was high quality chocolate so all I needed was one – which I thoroughly enjoyed!
Anyway, I have part 2 of the interview I did with Isabel so I am going to share that with you now……
Susan Campbell: What was your inspiration for The Diet Solution? Did you follow some other diet or fitness guru’s before your own ideas developed?
Isabel Del Los Rios: Writing the Diet Solution Program was inspired by seeing hundreds of clients in my private nutrition practice in New Jersey.
All of the nutrition principles that I would teach my clients was a combination of several books, classes and seminars that I had read or attended and grabbed the best principles taught in each.
I knew there had to be a way to put all of this great information together in an easy to read, easy to follow program.
Don’t get me wrong. Actually putting the information together and laying it out in a way that would be easy to understand by all people was not an easy chore.
But once it was complete, it really was a culmination of 15 years of research and study.
Susan Campbell: people need is another “diet program.” How is your nutrition program different and who would be a perfect candidate for your nutrition program?
Isabel Del Los Rios: My nutrition program is the best way and the only way most people should be eating.
It is not some crazy fad diet, nor is it some extreme crash diet. It is how everyone should be eating on a daily basis, as mother-nature intended.
What most people don’t realize is, if we ate the way our ancestors ate centuries ago, we would all be lean and healthy.
It is the over-commercialized and toxic processed foods in our countries that are keeping everyone so overweight and unhealthy.
Does it really seem healthy to sign up for a diet program that makes you buy their food and only their food?
Or to nourish your body with fake powders and bars? That’s really not how are bodies were designed.
Susan Campbell: What is the biggest benefit of following your nutrition program and does it come with meal recipes and meal plans?
Isabel Del Los Rios: The biggest benefit of my nutrition program is that it is made up of all real food.
It also recommends that you eat good healthy portions of food and that you should NEVER be hungry.
If you are walking around hungry, you are doing something wrong. You are most likely starving your body of the nutrients and whole foods it needs.
I have done all the hard work for you. I have put together all of the healthy principles into easy to follow meal plans, no matter what your starting point is.
I have also included 61 of my favorite meal recipes so that you can always keep your nutrition program delicious.
Susan Campbell: You clearly state that soy is NOT a health food. Does this go for everyone including those people who want to gain muscle?
Isabel Del Los Rios: This goes for absolutely everyone, but especially for those who want to build muscle.
I would even say the effects of eating soy will contribute to the exact OPPOSITE hormonal changes in your body that you want if building muscle is your goal.
This is because most soy products on the market today contain phytoestrogens.
These phytoestrogens mimic the effects of estrogen in the body and have been shown to decrease the testosterone levels of rats, monkeys and other animals, including humans.
It has been known for quite some time that soy lowers testosterone to the point that there is an old Japanese wives’ tale that says women punish straying husbands by feeding them a lot of tofu. Now what do you think that means?
If building muscle is your goal, definitely stay away from any protein powder or protein bar that contains soy or soy protein isolate.
Make sure to read labels carefully as it is in more products than you think.
Susan Campbell: How important is it to eat based on your metabolism and eat the right foods for your metabolism? Do you touch on this in your program?
Isabel Del Los Rios: Eating the right foods for your metabolism is so important, that it is the difference between losing weight and not losing weight.
We are all individual and so are our metabolisms.
In order to pinpoint exactly which meal plan will work best, I have included a Metabolic Typing Test so my readers can determine exactly how they metabolize food and which foods are “fat burning” foods and which foods are “fat storing” foods.
The results of this test have been a true “AHA” moment for thousands of people, finally, maybe for the first time, finding why they have not been able to shed their unwanted fat before.
What I teach in The Diet Solution Program is exactly what your body needs to maintain a lean and healthy body for a lifetime.
I will be back soon with more from my interview with Isabel.
