The New Lifestyle Diet Plan is a commercial diet program. The plan states that it is a portion controlled weight loss program that allows the body to rapidly lose weight by burning fat for energy. The New Lifestyle Diet Plan claims that its plan is nutritionally balanced and formulated with a combination of calories, carbohydrates, and protein that ensure fast weight loss, while still maintaining lean muscle. The New Lifestyle Diet Plan replaces breakfast and lunch with New Lifestyle Diet products, such as shakes, puddings, soups, hot drinks, oatmeal, cereal, or smoothies. Dieters then have one meal for dinner that includes 8 oz. of lean meat and two cups of vegetables. The Women's Daily Program consists of 1080 calories in six portion controlled meals, one nutrition bar or snack item, plus one meal. The Men's Daily Program consists of 1230 calories in six portion controlled meals, two nutrition bar or snack items, plus one meal. For the dinner meal, dieters can chose from a list of lean proteins and vegetables that must be prepared by baking, boiling broiling, grilling, roasting, or steaming. Frying foods is not allowed. The program also recommends a daily multivitamin. Exercise is encouraged in the New Lifestyle Diet Plan, which includes recommendations for walking and strength training.
When considering the New Lifestyle Diet Plan, it is important to remember that the most effective and safe weight loss diet plans include enough calories to allow dieters to lose about one to two pounds per week. Rapid weight loss is not recommended. The New Lifestyle Diet Plan is a low calorie plan that may not provide enough calories for some people, such as athletes or active people. Diets that severely restrict calories and/or carbohydrates can also lead to rebound weight gain. This is due to the fact that severe calorie restriction results in the body going into "starvation" mode, which leads to a lower metabolism, the body's way to try to prevent complete starvation. This often leads to gaining even more weight than was lost after the diet plan has been discontinued. This encourages "yo-yo" dieting patterns that are unhealthy and do not result in effective long-term weight control. Severe calorie and nutrient restriction can also lead to low blood sugar (hypoglycemia), low blood pressure, dizziness, and weakness. They can also result in ketoacidosis, a condition in which severe restriction of calories or carbohydrates leads to dangerously high levels of acids called ketones build up in the blood and can poison the body in some people. The American Dietetic Association cautions that many diet replacement products may lack fiber and phytochemicals, plant compounds that aid in disease prevention. Good, effective weight loss plans also encourage the consumption of a wide variety of fresh foods from all the foods groups that are low in saturated fats and trans fats and added sugars. These include fresh fruit, vegetables, lean sources of protein, low fat-dairy products, whole grain carbohydrates, and healthy fats, such as olive oil. Good diet plans also advocate for an overall healthy lifestyle, regular exercise, and provides support services to help people stay on track with their diet plan. Any diet may have the potential to be harmful to some people, so consultation with a health care provider before starting any diet plan and exercise program is recommended.
