The Venice Nutrition program is not a diet - it's a proactive way for anyone, at any age, to get control of their body. Known for getting participants into beach-ready shape, "Venice Nutrition Body Confidence" provides the ultimate plan for achieving lasting results. The program emphasizes three primary strategies to regulate blood sugar and lose weight: eating at specific intervals throughout the day; eating meals that streamline nutrient efficiency through prescribed ratios of carbohydrates, protein, and fat; and, eating a targeted number of calories at each specifically designed meal. Unlike other programs on the market, "Venice Nutrition Body Confidence" is highly customizable, and begins by showing readers how to unlock the secrets of their own metabolism. But nutrition is just one important piece of the Venice Nutrition approach to health. A carefully honed exercise plan, and guidance on how to harness sleep, vitamins/minerals, water, and stress management for optimum wellness, round out this holistic program.
The Venice Nutrition program excels in getting results, especially for those with busy lives-Macdonald's tested, highly effective strategies fit into even the most hectic day. Finally, the traditional diet is obsolete.
