Chris Powell, the transformation specialist on “Extreme Weight Loss,” has become known for championing carb cycling. He created his own diet book “Choose to Lose: The 7-Day Carb Cycle Solution.” It involves alternating high carb days with low carb diet cycles. The approach is designed to eliminate fat while keeping your metabolism at its peak.
He’s also an advocate of Cross-Fit style workouts, exemplified in his DVD: “Extreme Makeover Weight Loss Edition: The Workout 2011.”
In “Chris Powell’s Choose More, Lose More for Life,” Chris also discusses how to overcome psychological as well as physical obstacles to achieve weight loss. The book also includes his carb cycling diet.
A British study backed his discovery of just how well carb cycling works for weight loss. In that study, women eliminated high carb foods twice a week, eating normally the rest of the time. They lost nine pounds during a four-month period, compared to five pounds in four months for women who followed a daily 1,500 calorie Mediterranean diet.
