'TurboCharged:' New Way To Lose Weight

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (Ivanhoe Newswire) - You've heard of the Atkins, the Mediterranean, and the Cabbage diet. How about a no diet “diet” and no gym too? One health expert guarantees you will still lose weight and look fabulous.

“This is how I take my conference calls,” health expert and author Dian Griesel, PhD, told Ivanhoe while jumping on a mini-trampoline.

Try keep up with health guru Dian Griesel as she bounces new ideas around about dieting, like don't lose weight.

“Weight is muscle; it’s brains, it's hearts, your bones, it's all the essential organs of your body,” Griesel explained. “These all add up to your weight, but fat is a whole other story [and] we could get rid of some of it.”

Griesel is author of the book “TurboCharged” and she holds a PhD in nutrition. She insists on healthy eating and strongly suggests we drink much more water, especially before coffee in the morning.

However, this is where things really get interesting. Griesel said you also don't have to go to the gym. She recommends getting up for one minute to work your muscles every two hours, even at the office.

“I do it all day long at work,” Griesel said. “I've done it in skirts, I've done it in dresses, even in tight pants.”

She guarantees this works.

Some of the exercises she suggests doing for a minute every two hours are planks, push-ups, squats, jumping jacks, and moving on a rebounder.

RESEARCH SUMMARY

ATKINS DIET: There are many different diets out there. The Atkins Diet has helped millions of people lose weight. The premise is when you control your carb intake, you burn fat. Carbs and fat are your body's two sources of fuel. A low-fat diet is high in carbs; when you eat more carbs than your body needs, it stores them as fat. Atkins transforms your metabolism from one that stores fat into one that burns fat. (Source: atkins.com)

THE MEDITERRANEAN DIET: Another popular diet is the Mediterranean diet. The Mediterranean diet incorporates the basics of healthy eating — plus a splash of flavorful olive oil and perhaps even a glass of red wine — among other components characterizing the traditional cooking style of countries bordering the Mediterranean Sea. Research has shown that the traditional Mediterranean diet reduces the risk of heart disease. In fact, an analysis of more than 1.5 million healthy adults demonstrated that following a Mediterranean diet was associated with a reduced risk of death from heart disease and cancer, as well as a reduced incidence of Parkinson's and Alzheimer's diseases.

TURBOCHARGED: The goal of TurboCharged is to help you become healthier and happier. The objective is to make the journey as easy and enjoyable as possible. Most people agree that our bodies and minds are not separate entities but act together as a unit in ways we often do not understand. The creators of TurboCharged believe that if we can improve our minds we will automatically improve our bodies and more importantly, the reverse is also true. By learning to work with your body and feeding it the correct type of foods you will automatically improve the way it functions and looks. This will have an immediate and enormous impact on the way you think and feel. Contrary to popular belief, you can radically improve your body (and mind) in a very short period of time.
