Overview

Not all calories are created equal—some provide the body with more "active" energy; some are more likely to go straight into fat storage. The Active Calorie Diet teaches readers how to differentiate the active calories (think: apples) from the lazy calories (think: apple pies), in an easy-to-follow weight loss program. Active calories stimulate the body to work harder to digest them. Readers will stimulate fat burning and maximize weight loss by following the "CHEW factor"—eating foods that are Chewy, Hearty, Energizing, and Warming. A recent study revealed that eating foods that were more difficult to chew resulted in slimmer waistlines. The Active Calorie Diet combines whole, chewy foods like steak with hearty foods like potatoes (that are filling), energizing foods like dark chocolate (that help burn fat), and warming foods like salsa (that boost metabolism).

Coupled with more than 100 quick meals and recipes, The Active Calorie Diet allows readers to eat more, eat regularly, and eat real foods—and still lose up to 14 pounds in one month!
