Whenever you hear the word "diet", your mind is quickly filled with pictures of kale, Brussels sprouts, salads, lettuce and all the 'veggie' stuff. You start seeing the greasy, meaty foods run away and it seems as if the world's going to come to a stop.
In such a scenario, when a diet program comes forward and says you do not have to make drastic changes to what you eat, it sounds both, doubtful as well as promising.
And then the most common 'social' questions comes to the fore - has anyone tried this?
Before we answer that, here's a rundown of what this program is about.
The success of Beyond diet is seen in the proof, through the amount of weight loss in the first few weeks. The diet restricts certain foods which helps weight loss. Some people are also encouraged to add certain foods to their diet which they would have not consumed otherwise.
For example, if you are quite overweight you will have to keep a watch on the amount of sugar, bread or rice you consume. Or you will have to refrain from eating rice or bread at all since they are rich sources of carbohydrates.
So if you have been asked to stop eating foods from a particular food group, there is a tendency to cheat on the diet due to intense cravings. This is a major drawback of the diet since many people often feel tempted to eat the restricted foods. It destroys the purpose and the effect that the diet would have had. There are also chances of putting on weight instead of losing some, if you cheat on the diet.
The plus point of this diet program is that you are encouraged to eat organic food as much as possible.
This is a very healthy and effective way to lose weight since organic foods are highly nutritious (they are not synthetically processed or grown and chemical preservatives are not used). So you need not starve for the fear of putting on weight.
However, the only problem with organic food is that there are few stores which supply organic food which makes it a little inconvenient to procure it at all times and that it also happens to be quite costly.
Now there are many beyond diet reviews which state that you DO NOT have to eat organic foods at all, but we do encourage all our users to seriously consider eating 'clean' if you really want your health to improve.
Reviewers of the diet believe that this sort of weight loss is quite helpful since it’s not a short term diet plan as such.
But you need to sacrifice what you love to eat, forever; unless you plan to give up on the program.
While the Beyond Diet program does recommend some programs for exercise (these come at an additional cost) the main focus of the program is actually on eating the right foods according to your body type.
From this, you can certainly conclude that this diet is definitely different than most others. Now about the most important question, whether anyone's really using it; the official website does display a "membership count" which is updated every day.
While we can't really trust a site displaying its own success, we did find a very interesting blogger mentioned above who has written about her experience with the program in much detail.
If you are considering getting inside this program, we highly recommend you read the above review to get a much better idea of what it's about and what to expect.
