And I dropped three pounds in six days! Not too shabby!
**As always, be sure to consult your physician before taking on any exercise and/or diet plan. I’m no doc! So its please ask a real one before you decide to undertake Brazil Butt Lift or any other diet and exercise plan.
General Feelings: My general feelings towards the diet plan were positive. The plan included lots of fresh fruit, veggies, and mixed it up with different kinds of fish, snacks, and meals. Energy decreased as time went on, but that was expected, as no low-cal diet can be sustained for an indefinite period of time.
Pros: Lots of fresh fruit and veggies. Dinners were varied with many incorporating fish instead of a lean meat such as chicken. You feel as if your body is finally getting the clean, healthy food it deserves, and you even feel lighter. As long as you follow the plan, don’t stray from it, and do some workouts, you’re pretty much guaranteed to loose weight.
Cons: Because your body uses calories as energy, not having enough calories in a day can lead to an energy crash. This extremely low-cal diet is not sustainable for long and its users should be aware of this. Other than that, my gripes with the diet were a salad for lunch everyday can get boring, and the avoidance of caffeinated drinks may be hard for those who have come to rely on them for energy throughout the workday.
How the Plan Works
I’ll do a little math for you guys to show you just how this plan works.
On a normal day where I am not on any kind of diet, the following happens:
- I usually eat around 2200 calories a day (more or less) depending on the day.
- I usually burn around 400 calories a day (more or less) due to exercise.
- This gives me a net calorie intake of about 1800 calories a day.
I calculated my Basal Metabolic Rate and found I need 2145 calories per day to maintain my current weight (Find Your Basal Metabolic Rate Here).
Subtracting my net calorie intake from my basal metabolic rate gives me a 345 calorie deficit per day. At this rate using the rule of thumb that to loose one pound of fat, you must burn 3500 calories, it will take me just over 10 days to loose one pound (3500/345=10.14). Throw in some adult beverages on the weekend and I’m doing a fairly good job at maintaining my current weight.
Now, with that being said, here is what happened during the 6 Day Supermodel Slimdown Plan:
- I usually ate around 1200 calories a day.
- I usually burned around 500 calories a day doing the workouts.
- This gives me a net calorie intake of about 600 calories a day
Subtracting my net calorie intake from my basal metabolic gives me a 1,545 calorie deficit per day. At this rate using the same 1 lb=3500 calories rule, I would loose one pound every 2.26 days.
Theoretical Total Weight Loss Over the Six Days
To find the amount of pounds I would loose over the course of the diet, I took the number of days in the diet (6 days) and divided that by how long it would take me to loose one pound (2.26 days). I cam up with the answer that in six days, I would loose 2.7 pounds.
Give or take a couple days with more exercise or a lower caloric intake, this works out to be pretty consistent with my results.
What are Your Thoughts of the Plan?
Overall I’m happy with the results of this plan. I usually stay at a very set weight and don’t fluctuate much at all, so as long as I don’t go and decide to consume way more calories than I usually do, I think it will be easy to maintain this new, three pound lighter me. I’m more than willing to hear your guys’ thoughts on the diet and what you would recommend to others taking it on!
