Always check with your physician before starting any diet or exercise program!
MoChi Fitness Founder, Dawna, has a weight loss goal of 15 lbs. After much research and debate, she’s decided to follow the Hilton Head Metabolism Diet. You will be able to track her weekly weight loss and the daily menu that she is following on the MoChi Fitness Facebook Page as well as the MoChi Fitness Blog. However, it is recommended that you purchase the Hilton Head Metabolism Diet Book before you start this weight loss program. It is important to understanding the diet, how it works, and that you have a complete list of all fruit, vegetables, and protein food substitutions. In addition, the book covers the sequence of menu plans which are specifically listed for women and men based on weight loss goals.
Weigh only One Time Per Week. Dawna will post her weight each week on Facebook to show progress. If you are following the diet with her, please keep us posted on how you are doing! MoChi Fitness is glad to be a support system for you, as well as celebrating your weight loss with you. Look for Dawna’s short video each week with tips on dieting and how to get the most out of your MoChi Twister twist workout!
Do not make any changes to the diet for any reason. If you do, the plan won’t do what it’s designed to do. You may still lose weight; however, you’ll have to fight to keep it off because you did not change your metabolism. Metabolism is the key to the Hilton Head Diet, making sure the weight stays off for a lifetime.
The Hilton Head Diet has three phases. You must go through all three phases:
- Phase 1 – Low Cal
- Phase 2 – Booster
- Phase 3 – Re-entry
In order to lose 15 lbs, Dawna went with the 20 lb Plan, making her dieting weeks look like this:
- Week 1 – Low-cal
- Week 2 – Low-cal
- Week 3 – Booster
- Week 4 – Low-cal
- Week 5 – Reentry
Low Cal Phase
Always begin with the Low Cal menu plan. This phase is designed for maximum weight loss. Follow these menus for two weeks.
After two weeks, switch to the Booster menu plan for one week. This phase allows about 300 more calories each day and is designed to boost your metabolic rate. You must switch to this Booster Phase for one week after two weeks of the Low Cal phase.
When you get within one to three pounds of your goal weight, switch to the Reentry menu plan. This phase enables your metabolism to increase gradually, getting it ready for maintenance. If you skip this phase, you run the risk of gaining some of your weight back within the first two weeks after the diet is over.
The Hilton Head Diet requires you to exercise 20 minutes, 2 times per day. The MoChi Fitness Twister twist workout routines are perfect for this program. Pop in your iPod and do the Twister dance workout routine to your favorite music anywhere (at home, school, or the office). Ten minutes during your morning or afternoon break or 20 minutes during lunch hour is perfect. In addition, 20 minutes in the evening watching your favorite TV program covers the 40 minutes of exercise required each day. If you find yourself waiting for the bus take the twisters out of your MoChi Tote Bag and twist! Trust me, people will admire the fact that you are taking care of your health and you may influence others to do the same!
