Like many of my readers I am a time poor parent and being time poor means I don’t have time for extreme diets. I don’t have time to measure and weigh my food everyday, I am too busy being a husband and a Dad.
My eating habits need to fit into my lifestyle, that was the premise behind my complimentary e-book ‘How to Lose Weight Without Dieting’. <–Link To Ebook
Being the author of a popular health and fitness blog I get asked quite often to review various diets or nutritional plans. Most of the time they are way too restrictive, bland or down right wrong. Occasionally I come across a nutritional program that strikes a cord with me.
Recently I was given the opportunity to review a new nutrition program called The Diet Solution. When I initially received The Diet Solution Program, I was pleased to see the creator was a person in a similar situation to mine.
The creator, Isabel De Los Rios is a fitness and nutrition expert, and a proud mother with a busy lifestyle who through sensible nutrition manages to maintain her lean and sexy physique.
So impressed with The Diet Solution Program <– Link To Website that I decided to interview the program’s Isabel De Los Rios to try and get a bit of an insight in some of her personal nutrition habits and how The Diet Solution Program can help people like you and I get in AND stay in shape.
Niko: Isabel, welcome to No Excuse Fitness, can you tell our readers a little a bit about yourself, and what you do?
Isabel: Sure, I battled my own weight since I was a teenager and through my own mistakes and struggles, I found the only way to really lose weight and keep it off was through a natural foods approach. And by no means does that mean a tasteless, bland food approach. I mean the stuff good ol’ Mother Nature provided us with in their delicious forms.
Right now I am a New Jersey based Holistic Nutritionist and Exercise Specialist. I have a private practice in NJ and when I’m not seeing clients in my office I am writing books, newsletters, articles or speaking on the principles of healthy nutrition for weight loss and disease prevention. Basically, doing my best to communicate what true health is to the world.
Niko: I just finished reading your program, The Diet Solution and was impressed by how easy it was to read and follow. What was your inspiration for writing The Diet Solution?
Isabel: Writing the Diet Solution Program was inspired by seeing hundreds of clients in my private nutrition practice in New Jersey. All of the nutrition principles that I would teach my clients was a combination of several books, classes and seminars that I had read or attended and grabbed the best principles taught in each.
I knew there had to be a way to put all of this great information together in an easy to read, easy to follow program. Don’t get me wrong. Actually putting the information together and laying it out in a way that would be easy to understand by all people was not an easy chore. But once it was complete, it really was a culmination of 15 years of research and study.
Niko: Do people really need another “diet program?” How is your nutrition program different and who would be a perfect candidate for your nutrition program?
Isabel: My nutrition program is the best way and the only way most people should be eating. It is not some crazy fad diet, nor is it some extreme crash diet. It is how everyone should be eating on a daily basis, as mother-nature intended. What most people don’t realize is, if we ate they way our ancestors ate centuries ago, we would all be lean and healthy. It is the over-commercialized and toxic processed foods in our countries that are keeping everyone so overweight and unhealthy. Does it really seem healthy to sign up for a diet program that makes you buy their food and only their food? Or to nourish your body with fake powders and bars? That’s really not how are bodies were designed.
Niko: What is your advice for someone just starting your Diet Solution program? Can anyone do this?
Isabel: Absolutely anyone can follow and succeed on The Diet Solution Program. My mother started following the program at 63 years old after a kidney transplant. In 6 months, she lost 40 lbs and has never been healthier or felt better in her life. Not only has she lost a significant amount of weight, but she has greatly reduced the number of medications she was previously taking. If she can do it, anyone can do it!
I would start by incorporating one principle at a time. People get very overwhelmed and think they need to completely overhaul their life all at once, but this is not true. My own nutrition changes took almost 3 years. Now you may incorporate these principles sooner than I did, but remember that getting to your health goals at a pace that is do-able for you is much better than not doing anything at all.
Niko: What is the biggest benefit of following your nutrition program and does it come with meal recipes and meal plans?
Isabel: The biggest benefit of my nutrition program is that it is made up of all real food. It also recommends that you eat good healthy portions of food and that you should NEVER be hungry. If you are walking around hungry, you are doing something wrong. You are most likely starving your body of the nutrients and whole foods it needs.
I have done all the hard work for you. I have put together all of the healthy principles into easy to follow meal plans, no matter what your starting point is. I have also included 61 of my favorite meal recipes so that you can always keep your nutrition program delicious.
Niko: If there was one Diet Solution secret you could share with everyone what would it be?
Isabel: Just one? Oh that’s tough. I guess it would be to learn your metabolic type and follow an eating plan that is specific to that type. Without this information, you may actually be following a healthy eating plan but one that is not specific to your metabolic needs. If it’s not what your body needs, you will not see the results you’re after.
Niko: Any exciting new plans for the future?
Isabel: Of course. We are now in the process of recording The Diet Solution Program as an audio program so that you can listen to the entire book in the car or on the go. I am also in the process of putting together The Diet Solution for Children and The Diet Solution for Diabetes. Lots and lots of exciting projects in the works.
Niko: Sounds exciting, thanks so much for the interview Isabel.
Isabel: No problems at all.
There you have it folks, a great interview from a person that not only talks the talk but also walks the walk.
In my opinion The Diet Solution Program is a complete and comprehensive weight loss program that will not only help you lose body fat, but guarantees you increased energy, health and vitality all at the same time.
