50 Cents Weight Loss Secret?
Curtis Jackson (AKA 50 Cent), the rapper turned actor melted around 55 pounds of fat (weight?) in just about 2 months. The primary motivation for this achievement is, 50 Cent had to lead the role of a Cancer stricken Football player in the movie “Things Fall Apart”
Now there is too much hype and buzz about 50 Cent’s achievement. People want to lose weight like 50 Cent did. Fake pills manufactures are probably planning to release something like “50 Cents diet pill” so BEWARE!
So what’s the secret behind 50 Cent’s diet & weight loss?
If 50’s words have to be believed, he ran on treadmill for 3 hours day; went on starvation and did liquid diet. That’s very difficult to follow for ordinarily folks like you & me without strong incentive! Right?
What Are Liquid Diets?
Liquid diets control calorie intake by restricting what you eat to mostly or all liquids. How they work varies from product to product. Some liquid diets are fluid only — juices or shakes that replace all of your meals, three or four times a day. These programs are either do-it-yourself options sold over the counter, or medically supervised plans available only through doctors’ offices or hospitals.
Other types of liquid diets replace just one or two meals (usually breakfast and lunch) with drinks, but let you eat a healthy, balanced dinner. These diets may also include snack bars for in-between meals.
Do Liquid Diets Really Work?
Liquid diets contain a reduced — and often significantly reduced — number of calories. If you eat fewer calories than you burn off, you will lose weight. However, that weight loss may be short-lived. When you drastically reduce the amount of calories you consume, your metabolism slows to conserve energy. Unless you change your eating habits, you’ll gain back the weight as soon as you return to your old diet! That’s how this diet work
Some liquid diets work better over the long term than others. Researchers have found that diets that include both food and liquids can help overweight people control the number of calories they eat with liquid meals and help keep the weight off for several years.
As for the claim by some liquid diets that they can ‘detoxify’ the system by cleansing it of impurities, there is no evidence to prove it. “The body is a very sophisticated machine that has its own system of detoxifying through the liver and sweat,” says Andrea Giancoli, a registered dietitian and spokeswoman for the American Dietetic Association.
No! That’s very dangerous! One more thing – can you realistically follow liquid diet for 2 months? Think again!
If you really want to lose some weight quickly the unusual way, then I suggest you to try Master Cleanse diet for a week. Master Cleanse diet (also known as Lemonade diet, Maple syrup diet) can help you to cleanse your body & would flush all those toxins you have accumulated for years!
Again, the diet it not easy to follow…but for a week it’s worth a try. For the time being let’s congratulate 50 Cents for his amazing achievement and inspiration.
