The New Me Diet

Written by Health Guru

Back in the day, there were only two kinds of exercise, cardio and weights. But now, there’s a new one: “high-intensity.”

Developed by Drs. Jade and Keoni Teta, The New Me Diet focuses on high-intensity training and nutrition to trigger the body’s fat-burning hormones.

And, using a questionnaire which determines your body’s metabolism, The New Me Diet says you can lose up to15 pounds in 3 weeks.An overview of The New Me Diet illustrates the four key tenants of the fitness regime, and how it can work for you.

“Intelligent Exercise”

Instead of long, drawn out cardio workouts, like for running miles and miles, Me goes with high-intensity spurts, involving circuit resistance training with heavy weights, short rest periods, which last only thirty one minutes.

Creators of Me claim this can spark the “Metabolic Effect” – or ME – leading to increased fat burning for 48 hours after the workout has finished.

The Science Of ME Training

Me says short, high-intensity workouts help “change hormones,” allowing the body to naturally regulate fat burning, appetite, and mood. Changes in mood will give you the motivation to workout, and it cuts food cravings.

Exercising for only thirty-one minutes jives well with people who are pressed for time. How “hard” the workout is sparks the ME, causing your body to increase fat usage for hours, even days, after exercising; with ME outperforming typical aerobic programs.

The ME Fat Loss Lifestyle

As far as nutrition goes, The New Me Diet says low-calorie isn’t everything. Eating is only part of it. Suppressing appetite occurs through hormones, with a fierce exercise regiment revving up fat burning hormones.

Eating high volume foods – protein and fiber – and intense workouts, produce powerful fat burning hormones including adrenalin, human growth hormone, and testosterone, to facilitate weight-loss and boost willpower.

Rest-Based Training

Comparing it to a sprinter taking a break between races, The New Me Diet stresses the importance of rest, encouraging it in a workout, and calling that a good thing.

Rest helps you take your exercise further. The more you rest, the harder you will push yourself, and vice-versa.

What do you think? Me sounds like another retread to me – lots of exercise, eat right, rest; But, all diet gurus, diet “doctors” and miracle programs rub me the wrong way. So, I’m the wrong guy to ask.

Have you tried Me? Did it work for you?
