The 5 Factor Diet Recipes and Review

What is "The 5-Factor Diet" in a nut shell

The basic of the diet are to follow 5 principles:

  1. Have 5 meals each day.
  2. Exercise 25 min. 5 of your 7 days a week for at least 5 wks
  3. Follow the 5 'must haves' in a meal
  4. Take at least 5 mins preparing your meal, with 5 ingredients. 
  5. Ensure you have a ‘cheat’ day, once per week.

These all serve a purpose, and will ensure your success at weight loss. The book goes into much more detail, but the "cheat' day essential. Due to the fact that if you have a friend wants to 'go out' or a birthday party to attend, you can enjoy it without the diet induced guilt for indulging a little or worse, giving up because your are tired of 'dieting'.

5 fat loss keys that will give you the power you need, when you need it.

  1. Glycemic Index - having low GI foods will keep cravings down.
  2. The best calories - healthy meats, and lots of fruits and veggies.
  3. Exercise - (5-Factor Fitness) helps you sleep and reduces cravings.
  4. Metabolism — the faster your metabolism is, the more fat is burned. 
  5. R & R - Rest and Recovery promote muscle growth and reduces stress. 

5 'Must Haves' in each meal (The 5-Factor World Diet is just an extension of choices)

  1. Fiber
  2. Low-fat, quality protein 
  3. Zero Sugar in your drinks
    Low-GI carbohydrate (examples: strawberries, sweet potatoes) 
  5. Healthy fat (examples: olive oil, avocados)

Sundays are allowed as a ‘cheat day’. You still need to have 5 meals but you can add your favorites without the guilt.
