A while back, fellow blogger, Bella, asked me for more details on the 8 Hour diet, and it totally spaced my mind, but I finally got the details. This is the exact information from the email I received, except it does not include the 8-minute workout, I don’t have an easy way to share it. I think it would be better to do a regular workout anyways, find something you enjoy that gives you the workout you need.
The 8-Hour Diet Secrets of Fast Weight Loss
Duration: For 8 hours a day, you can, and should, eat whatever you want. (We’ll give you the strategies will guide you through the rest of the day. For one thing, you’ll sleep through half of it!)
Days/Week: The magic of the 8-Hour Diet is that you don’t have to follow it every day. Seven days a week? Terrific! Only five? You’re still good! Just three? You’ll still see benefits!
Meals: As many as you want, whenever you want—as long as they fall within your 8-Hour eating plan
Foods: At each meal or snack, try to get two of the eight Powerfoods, one Fat Buster, and one Health Booster. Every day, you want to make sure you can say, “I ate my 8!”
The Fat Boosters: Eggs and leans meats, yogurt and other dairy, peanuts, walnuts and other nuts, beans and other legumes.
The Health Boosters: Raspberries and other berries, apples, oranges, and other fruit, whole grains and oatmeal, spinach and other green veggies.
Perfect-snack examples: Hummus with carrots, yogurt with blueberries, green salad with walnuts, roast beef and tomato sandwich
Emphasize: Lean protein, fiber, healthy (mono- and polyunsaturated) fats, brightly colored fruits and vegetables
Limit: Refined carbohydrates such as baked goods; sugar; white bread, rice, and pasta; saturated and trans fats; high-fructose corn syrup
The Carb Rule: Always include two Powerfoods in any carb-heavy snack or meal (i.e., pasta with cheese and tomato sauce, sandwich with turkey and lettuce, cereal with milk and berries, chips with bean dip and salsa).
Beverages: Dramatically reduce your calorie intake by drinking more water and skipping sugary drinks. Limit alcohol to two or three drinks per week to maximize your results.
Exercise: 8 minutes each morning (Yes, just 8 minutes!) *I’m unable to link to the exact workout, but its basically a interval total body workout.
Skipping Days, Cheating, and Generally Messing Up: Totally allowed.
