My Review of Isabel De Los Rios’ “Diet Solution Program”

            Choosing the right weight loss diet is vital to your weight loss success.
With so many weight loss diets on the market, it can be extremely difficult to choose the diet plan that is right for you.
I have to say I am not a person that can be easily influenced when it comes to fitness and diet. Being a biomedical engineer, I possess quite an extensive knowledge of nutrition, therefore I have the tendency to analyze, observe and investigate all the diet and fitness programs available.            
And once I decided in favor of a healthy lifestyle, I did a very detailed analysis of what’s on the market…. A six-month analysis…
Why did I do it? Because I strongly believe that in order to be truly healthy, you need to eat a nutritious and balanced diet and get a proper level of exercise.
How did I do it? Well, I bought every book available on the subject and I have studied and analyzed every single one.
I am talking about the Atkins Diet, the Low Fat and Very Low-Fat Diet, the Oprah Diet, the Zero Carb Diet, the Cabbage Soup Diet, the Herbalife Diet, the Zone Diet, the Medifast Diet, the Best Life Diet, the Mediterranean Diet, the DASH Diet, the Abs Diet, the South Beach Diet, the Blood Type Diet, the Green Tea Diet, the Cleansing Diet and the  Diet Solution Program.
            It is true, I spent time and money, but it was well worth it because I found a proper diet plan that I use with great results. It is called The Diet Solution Program, by certified and renowned nutritionist Isabel De Los Rios.
            Why this diet and not another?

            Well, I chose it because ….
            1. I verified the credentials of the expert involved in the program.
            Isabel De Los Rios is a certified nutrition and exercise specialist. She has an outstanding educational background. She has attained the highest and most advanced certification given by the National Strength and Conditioning Association as a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist. She has also been certified by the Corrective Holistic Exercise Kinesiology Institute in San Diego as Holistic Nutrition Lifestyle Coach.
            She is the owner of New Body-Center for Fitness and Nutrition in New Jersey. She has been able to function alongside hundreds of clients in her own personal facility testing and strengthening the facts and guidelines, which she spent many years exploring. The facts have become not merely specifics but genuine concepts tested and proven on real people.
            She has over 10 years of experience in helping her clients reach their ideal weight and take control of other conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, and high cholesterol.
            She states that her personal experience with her own struggles with weight control and her mother’s severe diabetes is what led her to search for the BEST nutrition information available today. 
            The Diet Solution Program is a result of her 15 years of study and research. She is very honest with her readership providing them with all the specifics that most people never really take the time to read and process. She has helped over 25,000 people worldwide and still counting.
            Undoubtedly, her credentials have proven her hard work and determination on helping people on achieving better health. Therefore, I think her approach to health and fitness is definitely the best option for overweight, unhealthy, as well as individuals who wish to maintain their health in good condition.
            2. This is a program that helps us set realistic goals and aim for gradual weight loss. It is true that most have seen results immediately. In my first week I lost a little more than 7 pounds, but the majority of this lost weight was water weight. You see, most overweight people are holding extra water weight because of the wrong foods that they are eating. But, after the first week, you will lose around 1 or 2 pounds a week, which is a moderate and extremely healthy weight loss.
            3. I made sure the plan offers a variety of tasty foods to ensure that we receive all the nutrients we need - our diet should include all the recommended daily allowances (RDAs) for vitamins, minerals and protein.
            Well, I have to admit that I have a love of tasty foods! I hate starvation diets!
            Starvation diets are the single reason why almost all people fail at losing weight and why they have such a hard time doing so.
            Almost all of us are making the one mistake that leads us to failure right from the start, and that is following a very restrictive diet instead of following a natural way of eating that not only satisfies our hunger, but also helps us to reach and maintain the best weight and health for our bodies.
            And this is where The Diet Solution Program is so different from all other diet programs preaching cutting back on eating and starving yourself.
            You will learn that the very best "diet" for you is going to be one that you will be able to stay with for the long term and includes great and delicious foods, a program that you will be happy with and one that you will be able to maintain for a lifetime.
            This program is so successful because it is based on an individual factor, the metabolic concept, which is the most unique twist on an eating plan ever. Therefore, this is a plan that not only helps us lose weight but also teaches us to keep it off.
            You will learn from The Diet Solution Program that to develop the best diet for yourself, you will only eat foods that you enjoy.
            You see, eating healthy foods does not mean that you cannot enjoy scrambled eggs with your favorite veggies stirred in for a great breakfast meal, or a juicy steak or burger for lunch or dinner.
            By finding healthy foods that you enjoy and being creative with them, you will discover that you will have an endless amount of delicious food options. You will be given a complete and detailed shopping list and tons of delicious and quick recipes. I am talking about: lean meat, fish, skinless chicken, legumes, eggs, butter, olive oil, nuts and seeds, fresh fruits, vegetables, raw chocolate, whole grain pastas and bread, whole grain cereals and oatmeal, low-fat dairy…
            This is why there is no need to buy any supplements, pills, bars or shakes. You will learn that before you incorporate any supplements into your routine, you must first learn the principles of the program, and using supplements do not provide any long-term benefits anyway.
            4. I looked for a balanced diet plan that allows us to exercise comfortably.
            Well, with any program, you should incorporate some type of daily exercise to reap the benefits of your new eating routine.
            The one I personally use is Craig Ballantyne's “Turbulence Training”. It is extremely easy to follow and it gave me quite stunning results. I highly recommend that you checkout my review on this smart fitness routine.

So what is my final verdict?
After using The Diet Solution Program for more then a year, I found that it has many strong points but also a few drawbacks.
The strong points of this diet are:
·         it is individualized, as it is based on an individual factor (the metabolic rate);
·         it is suitable for any age group;
·         it is neither restrictive nor depriving;
·         people diet without starvation;
·         teaches dieters the appropriate portion sizes;
·         protein type people do not go hungry, since each meal includes high quality protein;
·         diabetics can diet safely;
·         it provides a very significant decrease in blood glucose levels, as well as cholesterol;
·         emphasizes foods high in the heart-healthy omega 3 fats;
·         it makes your transition to your newer healthier nutrition much easier;
·         it produces a happy lifestyle through natural and healthy eating;
·         encourages the intake of fresh fruit and vegetables;
·         people can find long lasting results;
·         it contains clear instructions and photographs of the strength and cardiovascular exercises included;
·         cravings are eliminated;
·         people are well educated about nutrition and become more aware of food ingredients;
·         graded levels of starting a diet;
·         preferences about food can be changed, meal plans can be adjusted to suit individual needs;
·         very good information about good nutrition;
·         people love to learn cooking to prepare their own diets;
·         includes meal plans and a wide selection of delicious recipes;
·         encourages the intake of pure water;
·         it explains what to do and how to do it;
·         it actually teaches you how you can make this healthy way of eating into a lifestyle;
·         it has helped thousands of people lose weight permanently.

I admit that this weight loss program is the most complete and healthy diet and       nutrition program that I have found by far, but I will also admit that I’ve found a couple of  drawbacks. The first is that meal planning by metabolic type could not be easy for some and second, it does not provide vegetarian meal plans.

Well, I am confident that you now understand why I chose to follow this diet instead of all other programs.
If you want to lose pounds the healthy way and start a new wonderful life, The Diet Solution Program is one program I recommend! Therefore, if you decide to buy a true and tested diet e-book,this is the one.
