Russian Gymnast Diet*
This is the diet of Olympic silver medalist Irina Tschachina ( 5″6 and weighs only 99lbs!) it was such a success for her now many other Russian Gymnasts are following this diet. Here it is:
Glass of either orange or apple juice
Fruit Salad (made off kiwi fruit, orange, pineapple, and peeled apples)
Glass of fruit juice (from one of the above fruits)
Glass of non carbonated water*
Anyone on this diet for 5-7 days can loose between 4 lbs-11 lbs
*non carbonated means non fizzy, so normal water.
Ana Boot Camp Diet
The Ana Boot Camp (or ABC Diet, not to be confused with Robert S. Wieder’sABC Diet) is an internet diet meme passed around on forums devoted to pro ana (pro anorexia, a movement promoting anorexia as an alternative lifestyle rather than a disease).
What You Eat
The Ana Boot Camp Diet is a simple 50-day schedule listing the number of calories that the dieter is advised to eat. Calorie levels range from zero to 500 calories (one day only lists 800 calories), in an apparently random pattern.
|Week 8||Fast||Slowly return to a normal diet|
Ana Boot Camp supplies very few calories, only a fraction of the calories even than the Master Cleanse, which is considered by many to be a virtual fast. And the Ana Boot Camp is 50 days long, whereas most Master Cleansers don’t continue for longer than 10 or 12 days. Thus the Ana Boot Camp diet is potentially extremely dangerous.
The Diet’s Theory
The diet is based on the concept of calorie shifting, a dieting theory born from the idea that when you reduce your food intake suddenly, your body shifts into “starvation mode,” an evolutionary defense mechanism in which your body’s metabolism becomes more efficient in order to cope with an expected shortage of food. By varying the number of calories each day you presumably trick the body into not realizing that it is being confronted with a shortage of food, thus preventing starvation mode.
Problems with Theory
The concept of “starvation mode” as applied to dieting is a myth. Although there is a grain of truth underlying the idea, the degree of efficiency that your body can achieve during a weight loss diet does not materially affect your rate of weight loss.
And in the case of the Ana Boot Camp, it’s preposterous to think that your body would interpret days of 400 or 500 calories as “feast days” that would counter days of 100 or 200 calories. Every day of the Ana Boot Camp diet is a fast day.
The Ana Boot Camp diet will cause you to lose weight not through any metabolic hacks, but rather through simple lack of food. And it will do so at the risk of the dangerous side effects of long-term fasting, including loss of heart muscle.
