Weight Loss Grail

 By Mizpah Matus B.Hlth.Sc(Hons)

The Weight Loss Grail is a simple weight loss plan that is designed to give dieters the knowledge they need to achieve their goals.

The author of the program claims that you can lose 28 pounds in 28 days without ever feeling hungry or giving up your favorite foods.

The Weight Loss Grail borrows ideas from the methods that bodybuilders use to reach very low levels of fat. The author states that even if you are not aiming to achieve such extreme fat loss you can still benefit by adapting their techniques. This will allow you to learn how to lose weight and keep it off for good.

Weight Loss Grail Basics


Instead of eating three large meals a day dieters are advised to break up their food intake into six smaller meals. This is highlighted as the best way to lose fat and maintain your muscle without feeling hungry

The author explains that waiting a long time in between meals slows down the metabolism because it activates the starvation response. This is even more likely when on a low calorie diet. By eating frequent small meals this problem is avoided and fat burning is enhanced.

Calorie restriction is acknowledged as being of prime importance for successful weight loss, however when calories are reduced too low this can cause excessive hunger and may trigger yo-yo dieting. As such dieters are advised to reduce their calories to no less than 80% of the daily requirement.

The nutrient breakdown of the diet should be approximately 45% carbohydrates, 35% protein and 20% fat. However dieters are told that rather than measuring exact proportions of calories and ratios, to think of food in terms of portion sizes. Don’t obsess over the details; just combine a portion of protein with a portion of carbohydrates and you will be fine.

In addition it is recommended in the Weight Loss Grail that you take nutritional supplements including minerals, cod liver oil, probiotics and extra virgin coconut oil. These supplements will assist in the reduction of appetite and cravings by giving your body the nutrients it needs.

No foods are strictly forbidden, however, it is advisable to avoid fried foods. You are instructed not to eat foods you think are healthy for you if you don’t like them.

You shouldn’t try to eat a 100% perfect diet; just aim for an 80% diet that includes foods that you like and that you will be able to stick with. This means that you can cheat every day if you like, so long as the rest of your meals are flawless.

Exercise Recommendations

Costs and Expenses

The Weight Loss Grail is available as an eBook for $37 for the regular package. The platinum package is $49.95 and it also includes ‘The 5 Minute Weight Loss Miracle’, an audio program designed to ‘create a very strong mental desire to lose weight and to also promote natural bodily actions to lose weight’.

Weight Loss Grail Pros

  • Very simple and easy to follow.
  • Flexible and does not restrict any foods.
  • High intake of protein helps maintain muscle and reduce appetite while on a low calorie diet.
  • Program can be customized to suit the needs and preferences of the individual.
  • Provides advice about goal setting and incorporates visualization techniques.
  • Includes links to videos demonstrating resistance exercises.
  • Encourages a high intake of water.

Weight Loss Grail Cons

  • Requires portion control and monitoring of calorie intake but does not provide adequate guidance in order to achieve these actions.
  • Encourages unrealistic weight loss expectations.
  • Does not include recipes or meal plans.
  • Requires the use of nutritional supplements.
  • Expensive and provides a small amount of information and resources in relation to other plans.

Conclusions

The Weight Loss Grail offers a simple approach to dieting that will appeal to dieters who don’t like to follow complicated meal plans or spend a lot of time on food preparation.

Unfortunately it does not supply adequate guidance in relation to calorie counting or portion measurement, which is the fundamental concept necessary for the success of the program. This means that some dieters, especially those with lower calorie needs, could end up consuming too many calories and thus fail to achieve successful weight loss.

      The first place you need to start is understanding how many calories your body needs and how many you need to consume to lose weight. http://www.freedieting.com/tools/calorie_calculator.htm

      Losing weight can be frustrating but you’ll get there when you figure out, what works best for your body.

    • Jenny

    • Taylor

      Brinley – not all of us are skinny. You have curves and you are healthy, that’s all that matters. But, just wanted to tell you that if you love to dance – try Dance Party 4 – my granddaughter lost 15 pounds in one month just dancinig and she fells great. It’s a fun exercise, plus it teaches you how to dance. Good Luck.

  • Mary Anne

    Hello…..I would love to do this 28 day diet but I am wondering……I am a postal carrier and I am in my car for at least 4 hours a day delivering mail……will I need to be close to a bathroom doing this diet? Please help me ……Thanks!!!!

    • Joe

      No, this diet SHOULDNT require you to be close to a restroom. The thing about this diet is that you take your normal (required) daily intake for a seditary (sp) lifestyle and divide it by 6. Then you build your meals around those numbers (roughly). You can also use the palm/fist method and exercise. This doesnt mean a golds gym membership, but get that heart rate up, sweat a little for no less than 20 minutes a day (4-5 days a week, and who doesn’t have a spare 20-30min?). Try to get some muscle building exercises in there. Once again, dont have to go to the gym. Basic exercises with milk jugs, oil cans, or no weights at all, just the motion..ie, squats, lunges, etc. work out, get the blood flowing and eat well. portion control. you can do it.

  • kaynorish

  • Kanika

    I want to lose weight immediately. So I have planned to stay on an all-water diet for a week. Because the 8th day I have this really important party to go to and I want to look slimmer. Would staying only on water for 7 days help? Please reply soon.

    • Dr. Jackson

      Yes, most certainly, it’s called FASTING! You may want to check with a Dr. but NOT a medical Dr. You need to go to an ND, not a MD!!! MD’s have no idea! Get teh book on blood types! You are welcome!

    • ted

      NO! That is really a dangerous way to lose weight. You’ll end up sending your body into starvation mode and wrecking your metabolism.. at least try a low calorie diet like 3 day diet or 7 day diet if you want something with quick results, short term..

  • Scott Mercer

    Weightlifters and bodybuilders don’t lose weight becaue they eat six small meals a day. They lose weight because they are WORKING OUT LIKE MANIACS. The whole “small portions throughout the day” concept does NOT WORK. It takes your body’s metabolism FAR longer for the “starvation response” to kick in than several hours. If you eat constantly throughout the day, you are not giving you digestive system any time to do what it is supposed to be doing, and not giving your kidneys any time to eliminate toxins. Too frequent eating is a big part of the problem with the modern day First World eating habits. Read the Paleo/Primal diets.

  • claira

For breakfast: oats or all bran flakes, any fruit & plain yoghurt. Morning snack: carrot/apple or pro-vitas. Lunch: Salad, tuna/chicken fillet/fish & a fruit. Afternoon snack: apple/cream crackers with a tomato! Dinner: Salad/steamed veggies, fish/tuna or chicken fillet & a fruit. Night snack: yoghurt & fruits. If you feel hungry, eat an apple! Have at least 8 glasses of water & avoid soft drinks!! Hope this helps.

  • Chinagirl

    To Ifeoma, Reducing your food ‘types’? Start at home by using smaller plates and bowls. Get a measuring cup and use it when you prepare you plate so you can get an idea of what a so-called ‘normal’ size portion is. And don’t create ‘mounds’, ‘piles’, or ‘heaps’ on your plate. Chew your food well (close to liquid) and put your fork (spoon)down between bites. Concentrate on the taste of what your having, making sure you enjoy each bite. Start with your next meal, and don’t wait until you feel as though you’re starving to eat. Think about your food choices and find healthier (less sauce and sugar)

  • Weemaxie

  • allison o reilly

  • lingmag

    ifeoma,

    To reduce the amount of “unhealthy food” you eat, you need to eat bulky, low calorie foods before you eat your “main” foods. For example, if you know you are going out for pizza for lunch or dinner, eat an apple and 8 oz of water or a salad or some bulky low calorie foods 15-30 mins before eating the unhealthy food and you will eat less.
