NEVER eat this Cereal

Cereal is, by and large, one of the worst foods for your waistline, and your health. There are of course a few rare exceptions (like some of the cereals in the Ezekiel 4:9® line from the good folks at Food for Life®) but when it comes to the \"regular\" boxes that stock the shelves of the cereal aisle at your local grocery store, it\'s generally all very, very bad news.

Perhaps what is most disturbing about so many brands of cereal is that they confuse the heck out of consumers by making them \"sound\" so healthy and nutritious, when in reality they are anything but.

For example, while at the grocery store today I came across a \"Yogurt Berry Crunch\" cereal (with added fiber!) from a popular brand.

It sure sounds healthy...

In fact, the label even makes claims like \"heart healthy!\" and points out that it contains \"25 grams of whole grains\". \"Rich in antioxidants, vitamin C & E\", too. Just add up all those health benefits!

But here\'s the truth: 

This so-called \"healthy\" cereal contains FIFTY ONE ingredients, including not one, not two, not six, not seven, but TEN different sources of SUGAR.

It also contains SEVEN corn derived ingredients (very likely from genetically modified corn), including corn syrup and corn starch.

It\'s also loaded with inflammatory wheat ingredients and gluten, not to mention two of the worst damaged, denatured oils you can consume...canola oil and soybean oil.

Healthy? I don\'t think so! 

Unfortunately, just about everything else in the cereal aisle is in the same boat as this disastrously unhealthy 51-ingredient nightmare.

Simply put, you MUST eliminate these disasterous boxed foods from your home and start consuming whole, natural, REAL foods if your goal is to get a flat belly fast.

How "Nutrient Confusion" = FASTER fat loss (start this today)

The foundational principle of the 3 Week Diet, and the entire reason this strategic approach works so well, is the principle of Nutrient Confusion™.

With Nutrient Confusion™ we confuse the body by giving it different amounts of macronutrients and calories on a daily basis to avoid the negative metabolic adaptations of dieting and the dreaded \"starvation mode\" where your body shuts down your metabolism and outright refuses to burn fat.

You see, when you go on a diet your body isn\'t aware of — and doesn’t care about — your hopes for a slim waistline or how you\'re just trying to shape up for summer beach season. The only thing it does know is that when you start dieting you \"all of the sudden\" begin taking in drastically lower amounts of calories than you were previously. And, to your body, that\'s a big red flag.

When this happens, your body begins to slow your metabolism and put the brakes on fat burning as a starvation protection mechanism.

The major hormone responsible for this response is leptin, also known as the \"anti-starvation\" hormone. When calorie and food intake is normal, leptin levels remain high in the body, and the body is primed to burn fat as fuel.

When you go on a diet, however, leptin levels quickly drop letting the body know that something is \"wrong,” causing the body to respond with those starvation protection mechanisms we just discussed (e.g., slowed metabolism and decreased fat burning).

This is bad news for the dieter, as the reality is quite simply that our body makes it very difficult to lose weight through calorie restriction, although calorie restriction is necessary in order to lose weight.

Enter Nutrient Confusion™.

The key here is to create a calorie deficit (so you can burn and lose fat) while at the same time preventing your body from entering \"starvation mode.”

We do this by \"confusing\" or \"tricking\" the body by altering our daily nutrient and calorie intake.

You see, research has shown that it takes about a week for leptin levels to fall off by approximately 50%, putting you at just 50% of your fat burning potential. And as you can guess, each one of those days 1 – 7, leptin falls a little bit until it reaches that 50% level at Day 7.

Research also shows that manipulating calorie intake, particularly through carbohydrate manipulation, can give leptin levels a nice boost, or prevent it from falling off too rapidly in the first place.

As mentioned, the key nutrient here is carbohydrates, as research has shown that a boost in the carbohydrate-regulating hormone insulin also yields a boost in leptin levels. So, by manipulating carbohydrate intake every so often to boost leptin levels and prevent your body from \"catching on\" that you\'re dieting, you\'ll be able to create a sizable calorie deficit (and burn lots of fat) while avoiding starvation mode and keeping your body in fat burning mode around the clock. It\'s a nifty trick and it works very well.

Even better, we\'ve put together the most strategic carbohydrate manipulation strategy for you over the course of 21 short but very effective days.

In addition to the carbohydrate manipulation techniques used in the 3 Week Diet, we also use many other cutting-edge metabolism-boosting techniques, like strategic Cheat Days, to make the diet even more effective.
