Background

The Women’s Health Perfect Body Diet was created by the editors of Women’s Health Magazine as a solution for those who are stuck on the dieting roller coaster and tired of following weight loss plans that are impossible to maintain.

This program is designed to help you to overcome hunger, build lean muscle and burn fat while maintaining a high level of energy and vitality. It takes into account that every woman is different – with varying metabolism and hormone levels – so a unique weight loss plan is required to teach women how to get the perfect body.

The Perfect Body Diet Basics

The Perfect Body DietThe Women’s Health Perfect Body Diet is an eight-week structured program that also provides readers with education about basic nutrition and fitness. The program is comprised of three components: Perfect Planning, Perfect Eating and Perfect Movements.

After undertaking an initial assessment you will be recommended to follow the right eating plan for your particular metabolism. The idea is that by working with your body chemistry you will ensure that you consume the ideal amounts of carbohydrates and fiber: two nutrients that have been shown to be vitally important in your chances of successfully losing weight.

The Perfect Body eating plans include five to six small meals daily containing a balance of protein, fat and carbohydrates. Once a week you are allowed to have a cheat day where you can enjoy your favorite foods.

How to get the perfect body centers on the use of a soluble fiber called glucomannan, which helps burn fat and keeps you feeling full. This substance is to be consumed with every meal and all of the recipes in the perfect body diet feature glucomannan as an ingredient.

“It has the highest water-holding capacity of any soluble fiber — it can expand to up to 100 times its own water weight. … Glucomannan has the unique ability to instantly satisfy your hunger because it can be easily added to foods to make them thicker and heavier.”
