Starting a 3 day diet.

I have been conscious of my diet since the beginning of March and lost as much as 28 pounds, but the last couple weeks with weddings and the like I put about 8-9 of them back on so I am doing a three day diet and then starting a workout regimen back up.

I haven't lifted since my baseball injury in early February so I'm pretty excited about the whole thing.

Day 1- 120 g of protein, and aloe concentrate along with my regular vitamins supplements.

Day 2 - 5 meal replacement shakes with regular vitamins and supplements.

Day 3 - 2 meal replacement shakes and 1 balanced meal along with regular vitamins and supplements.

The biggest part of it is no simple sugars for a week after.

Here is the logic behind it:

Why This Program Works

Glucagon (released when you eat protein)
Raises Blood Sugar
By Converting Protein and Fat into Glucose
Burns Fat
Decreases Cholesterol Production
Increases Release of Growth Hormone
Decreases smooth muscles cells in vessel walls
Makes Kidney release fluid
Releases fat from fat cells for energy
Makes dietary fats into ketones for energy
Shifts metabolism into a Burning Mode

Insulin (released when you eat a carbohydrate)
Lowers Blood Sugar
Increases the Storage of Fat
Stimulates liver's synthesis of Cholesterol
Glucose Decreases
Growth Hormone Released
Stimulates growth of arterial
Smooth muscle cells
Increases Appetite
Makes Kidneys Retain Fluid
Shifts Metabolism into Storage Mode

I'll keep results updated because I think it will keep me committed for the next week and on into my workout sessions.

Glucagon will not convert proteins and fats into glucose if you have stored glycogen in your muscle tissue and liver. That would only happen if you went several days without eating carbohydrates and went into ketosis. Also, insulin is not just released when carbohydrates are consumed, though they are one of the biggest causes. Insulin is released when any macronutrient in consumed. Good luck with your weight loss.
