The Instinct Diet: 27 Great Snacks

The Instinct Diet was created by Susan Roberts and is based on the concept that all people are born with five built-in food instincts. If you understand and control these instincts, according to Roberts, then you could lose up to 15 lbs. in eight weeks. This weight loss is achieved through lifestyle changes that will allow dieters to be satisfied with less food. It will also give them the ability to reduce cravings. This diet has three stages. The first stage calls for a low calorie diet for two weeks that is extremely restrictive on food options. The second stage, which lasts for six weeks, is similar to the first stage in calories but allows for additional food choices. The final stage is considered long-term maintenance. This research-based diet provides a meal plan that is designed to keep hunger at bay while still promoting good taste and satisfaction.
