When it comes to losing weight, Rosemary Conley knows what she’s talking about. In her GI Hip & Thigh Diet she combines all the best bits from two of her previous best-sellers; the original Hip & Thigh Diet and the GI Jeans Diet to give us a new faster, healthier weight and inch loss plan.
Rosemary uses the benefits of a low fat and low GI diet to create a simple-to-follow weight loss plan and when paired with regular exercise you will soon see the weight drop off. Foods with a low GI value keep us fuller for longer therefore reducing hunger pangs and cravings to help us to stay within our calorie quota for each day.
Divided into two phases, you can expect to lose up to 7lb in the 14 days of Phase 1, the Fat Attack Fortnight. During this phase exercise is introduced with a daily exercise challenge and a two week menu plan is provided. In Phase 2 you move onto the GI Hip & Thigh Diet where based on your BMR (used to calculate your daily calorie allowance) you will continue with Rosemary’s menu plans but desserts, treats and alcohol may be allowed, depending on your calorie allowance.
One of the best bits about the GI Hip & Thigh Diet is that the menu plans are great for those of us who find it hard to stick to a diet but the recipes are all interchangeable for those of us who are a bit more fussy or need a little bit more freedom when it comes to losing weight. After the menu plans, the GI Hip & Thigh Diet provides loads more calorie counted recipes such as Chicken, Leek & Potato Pie and Smoky Prawn Stir-Fry, which can also be used in the menu plans.
The exercise program, with warm up and cool down stretches, is practical and suitable for all and includes exercises with dyna bands to shape your thighs. Rosemary keeps us motivated throughout with sections such as Eating For Good Health, Why Do You Want To Lose Weight?, Motivation – The Key to Success and Staying Slim.
The GI Hip & Thigh Diet also provides information on portion size, has record charts for weight and inches lost and an exercise planner.
