About The Diet
Harley Pasternak has a masters degree in exercise physiology and nutritional sciences and a celebrity-filled client list. On his plan, you will jump-start your metabolism and undo damage done by past diets. Most of your nutrients will come in the form of smoothies (you get five meals a day) for the first 15 days of the diet while you “reset” your metabolism. Food is then slowly reintroduced.
This plan works from the premise that if you can boost your metabolism (on the reboot phase) when you go back to eating your body will burn fuel more efficiently making longer-term weight loss and maintenance easier to accomplish.
Smoothies are made by following recipes so it is important that you like smoothies — but also his preferred ingredients which includes whey protein powder.
Don’t have time to exercise? That’s okay, Pasternak advocates for walking 10,000 steps each day for exercise and to improve your health. If that sounds like a lot of walking, it averages out to about 5 miles per day for most people with an average stride, but includes all the walking you do during the day.
People with sedentary lifestyles tend to only walk 1,000-3,000 steps per day. In fact, he advocates against over exercising because ….”over-the-top workout habits end up supercharging our appetites, ultimately causing us to consume even more calories than we would have if we’d stayed home and skipped the gym.”
