Renegade Diet Review Of Jason Ferruggia Program Revealed

Learn more with this Renegade Diet Review and see a video of what’s included in Jason Ferruggia’s newest plan.

After much anticipation and a couple of delays, Jason Ferruggia has released his complete version of The Renegade Diet.  Unlike other “diets”, Ferruggia says that this is not an ordinary diet, but a lifestyle.  The eating plans called out in his latest program are designed to help followers obtain a more lean muscular look while achieving good health.

After a quick Renegade Diet review, it is useful for people of various goals.  For those wanting to build muscle and lose fat at the same time or one without the other, the program can be varied for that.  To some fitness trainers, Ferruggia’s methods are controversial.  For example, it has always been preached that breakfast is the most important meal of the day but all of Jason’s plans state to skip it.  Another point Jason makes is that excessive protein is not required to build more muscle, which is against the recommendations of many other fitness gurus.

For those wanting a complete walkthrough the program and a review of the program, on youtube there has been video created there that does just that.  One can go here to see the video: Renegade Diet review

The Renegade Diet also addresses many health issues that men typically face through their lives.  Jason Ferruggia attemepts to help those with high estrogen levels, low testosterone, bad livers, and much more.  For a limited time, Jason is also offering a workout plan when one purchases the Renegade Diet.

Study of the Day: Eating Chocolate for Breakfast Is Good for Your Diet

New research from Tel Aviv shows that starting the day with a full meal that includes a sweet dessert contributes to weight loss success.

PROBLEM: Though restrictive diets often result in weight loss, most obese dieters fail to keep the pounds off as soon as their cravings start to overpower their discipline. Can a more forgiving breakfast topped off with sweets help prevent this all-too-common obesity relapse?


METHODOLOGY: To determine if and how the timing and composition of meals affect short- and long-term weight loss, researchers led by Tel Aviv University’s Daniela Jakubowicz randomly assigned 193 clinically obese, non-diabetic adults, ages 20 to 65, to one of two diet groups with identical daily caloric intake — 1,600 for men, 1,400 for women. Those in the first group ate a low-carbohydrate diet that included a small 300-calorie breakfast while members of the second cluster were given a 600-calorie breakfast high in protein and carbs that always included dessert.

RESULTS: Halfway through the 32-week trial, participants in both groups had lost an average of 33 pounds per person. Things changed drastically soon after, however. While participants in the large-breakfast group lost another 15 pounds each, those in the low-carb group regained an average of 22 pounds each. At the end of the program, those who had less restrictive breakfasts had lost an average of 40 pounds more per person than their peers.

CONCLUSION: Starting the day with a full meal that includes a sweet dessert can bolster and maintain a dieter’s weight-loss progress.

IMPLICATION: Curbing cravings is better than deprivation for dieting success, says Jakubowicz in a statement, since avoiding sweets altogether can create a psychological addiction to these same foods in the long-term.

SOURCE: The full study, “Meal Timing and Composition Influence Ghrelin Levels, Appetite Scores and Weight Loss Maintenance in Overweight and Obese Adults,” is published in the journal Steroids.

Self Magazine to Launch Facebook Diet Program and Social Game

Facebook DietWomen’s health and fitness magazine Self is upping its investment in Facebook. The publication is launching a social game and diet program on the social network next week.

The “Self Workout in the Park Social Game” is an extension of the exercise-themed events Self throws in major cities every year. The “Drop 10 Diet Together” is one of many diet programs the magazine has developed in conjunction with health and fitness experts over the years.

Facebook is where Self readers are already connecting with each other, says editor-in-chief Lucy Danziger.

“We created an app for Facebook, so you can create a micro-community where you and, let’s say, five best friends who are going to be bridesmaids can drop weight,” Danziger told Mashable. “By supporting each other you will lose more weight.”

The Drop 10 program will live on Facebook as an application. Customizable settings including team names, member invites and page privacy.

Individuals are encouraged to try the diet and exercise plans designed to help users drop 10 pounds in ideally five weeks. Friends and family can send out invites to anyone on Facebook to share eating plans, card calendar, exercises and logs to track calories and daily meals. The full plan of eating plans and workouts will be available on the magazine’s main page.

Danziger, who has been Self‘s editor-in-chief for more than a decade, spoke of the importance of the web to the brand’s future.

“The old way of ‘create a magazine once a month, put it out there and then you move on’ is no longer valid,” she said. “Now you have a 24/7 relationship with your readers who give you feedback on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.”

The magazine believes it’s time for the print publishers to engage with readers who are feverishly tweeting, pinning and liking.

“The world of technology holds hands with print,” she said. “When you are reading a story you enjoy the experience of reading. But when you go on line you are in a user head space — you need tools interactive functionality.”

Self Drop 10 Facebook Diet Plan

The magazine hopes to engage with old and new readers online. Those interested in the diet will need to like the Facebook Self page, create a group, invite members and choose to share progress on social networks — Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, YouTube, Instagram and Foursquare — or choose to keep the group diet a secret. A weight loss goal is the sum of pounds each individual’s goal. Personal weight ups and downs are always private.

The weight loss app and the new social game targets women in their 20s, 30s and 40s, although anyone can install the app.

The Facebook game will feature personalized avatars that tone up just as players would with regular exercise. There are virtual prizes and puzzles to keep Facebook gamers happy. Think Cityville or The Sims Social with yoga and Zumba.

With these new Facebook initiatives, the company is hoping double their current 180,000-plus Facebook fanbase.

“Obviously we want to serve reader well,” Danziger said. “The biggest goal for me and for Self is to grow this brand magazine on every platform in every direction.”

The Drop 10 Facebook initiative will launch on March 13 along with the April issue. The Facebook game will launch on March 16.

Diet review: The belly melt diet

Doesn’t it sound too good to be true? Eat certain foods and let the belly fat melt. But, this is a reality. A reality of The Belly Melt Diet.

All you have to do is eat a 1,600 calorie Mediterranean-style diet with a focus on certain food items, such as whole grains, nuts, beans, lean protein and most importantly MUFA foods (shorthand for monounsaturated fat, a good fat that aids in reducing the level of LDL (bad) cholesterol and raises HDL (good) cholesterol in the body). With expert inputs from Dr. Simran Saini, Weight Loss Management Consultant at Fortis Hospital, we take a closer look at this diet and bring you its essentials in this diet review of the belly melt diet.

Main points of consideration for The Belly Melt Diet. The Belly Melt Diet is considered to be a 1,600 calorie-a day diet that focuses on eating small portions of monounsaturated fatty acids with every meal. Monounsaturated fatty acids, or MUFAs, are plant-based fats found in olives, nuts, seeds and dark chocolate. The diet advocates that meals rich in MUFAs can actually help in reduction of belly fat.

How does The Belly Melt Diet work? The Belly Melt Diet works in a combination of two parts. The first phase of the diet is called the “Anti-Bloat Jumpstart”. It is a four-day fast-track diet designed to diminish belly bloating which is caused by development of gas or acidity due to inclusion of heavy solids and excess fluids in the diet. In this portion of the diet, you are required to follow an exact menu, which consists of four meals per day totaling 1,200 calories.

The second phase is called the “Four-Week Eating Plan”. During this part of the diet the menu is flexible but again you eat four meals which is a total of 1600 Calories per day. Every meal must contain a MUFA, such as olive oil on a salad or a handful of almonds.

Food items one can eat in this diet: What one can have in this diet matters most. This is a MUFA rich diet. Food items one can eat are oils including canola, safflower, sesame, soybean, walnut, flaxseed, peanut, sunflower and olive oil. One can also eat seeds and nuts such as sunflower seeds, pistachios, walnuts, almonds, pine nuts and other nuts and seeds.

A special kind of water termed as ‘Sassy Water’ is consumed in this diet. This water contains freshly grated ginger root, cucumber, lemon and mint leaves. It purportedly helps calm and soothe your GI tract. One can also eat avocados, dark chocolates, seafoods, chicken, eggs, most of the vegetables and most of the fruits. However, the quantity should always be in moderation.

Food items one cannot eat in this diet: Emphasis is given on eating MUFAS in your meals in different oils, seeds and nuts. Thus, the not-allowed list is not so specific. But the diet does not advocate use of many saturated fats in the diet like ghee, butter and so on.

A sample diet plan for the Belly Melt Diet.

For Breakfast. To start with a MUFA option breakfast you can cook your scrambled eggs in olive oil, with a handful of spinach and mushrooms. With this have avocado slices.

For Lunch. You may have chicken breast or well cooked omega-rich fish. You may include salad garnished with slices of avocado and almonds for extra MUFAs.

For Dinner. Here you can have either tomatoes, mushrooms, onions, eggplant, zucchini or a combination of all, along with fish, seafood, poultry or meat and a MUFA fat like sunflower oil as the cooking medium.

Advantages of the diet:

– The main advantage of the diet is that high consumption of MUFAS can increase your chances of balancing your cholesterol levels, improving your lipid profile and prevent chances of atherosclerosis.

– Also having a diet high in MUFA is an added benefit for women as omega 3 fatty acids from flaxseeds and olive oil help in balancing hormones and relieving women of premenopausal and pre menstrual syndromes.

– This diet, if taken in balanced portions, will help a person lose overall weight.

Disadvantages of the diet are:

– The first disadvantage of the diet is that a MUFA diet can have adverse effects if you consume too much of the foods mentioned with oil inclusions due to their high calorie content. All fats provide 9 calories per gram and if portions are not watched you may be eating 2,000 to 2,500 calories per day and may end up putting on weight rather than losing it.

– Most importantly, since this diet does not advocate any need for any exercise, the weight loss or belly trimming effect will not be sustainable for a long time and the toning required with weight loss will not be effective.

Our verdict on the Belly Melt Diet. The belly melt diet can help with weight loss and promote heart health, but there are no super foods for spot reduction at the belly alone. Do not mistake the diet’s name for any declarations of promise for quick belly fat loss.

The effect of weight loss or body trimming is overall and may not just target your belly. We also believe, and quite strongly, that the effect of any good diet is complete only in combination with a good workout program. Also, apart from weight loss, look to the belly melt diet as a healthy diet for improving your lipid profile.

Bottom-line: If you combine this diet with smart and strict portion control, exercise everyday, and don’t look for spot reduction or quick weight loss, then this diet will work for you.

Pruning program coming to Hackensack’s Johnson Public Library for spring on …

Gardening, reportedly, has a range of physical and psychological benefits: better sleep, less stress, improved diet and a greater overall satisfaction with life.

With these benefits in mind, Hackensack’s Johnson Public Library is offering a special pruning pointer program on March 20 at 7 p.m. meant to help local gardeners best prepare for the upcoming planting and growing season.

Bob Malgieri of Borst Landscape and Design of Allendale will present a free workshop covering the tools, timing and techniques to properly care for your trees and shrubs. Besides presenting a lot of helpful information, Malgieri will also have time for discussion and questions about gardening.

Barb Schuit, assistant director of Johnson Public Library, noted that the program is meant to address the springtime and summer needs of the community.

“We’re offering our community skill-based programs, including about gardening,” Schuit said. “People are approaching spring, and they are wondering how to get their gardens ready. We wanted to offer this program so people can get their trees and bushes ready for the best blooming and growing season possible. I know that I have a hard time keeping my hydrangeas from flopping over. I know that I need to prune them, but how I would do that I’m not so sure. I think that there are other people out there who have my same dilemma.”

Pre-registration is required. To pre-register, contact Schuit at 201-343-4169, ext. 19 or email [email protected]
