Topic: The ABC Diet, aka Ano boot camp diet?
September 20, 2019 / By Clairene Question:
I kno what the ABC diet is, its a certain amount of calories each day, with fasts. you are also supposed to exercise 30 minutes at least 5 days a week. I don't want to hear don't do it. Cause quite franky, it's more than I normally eat anyway. So please don't comment on how bad it is other than what I am asking. Will your metabolism become so slow that you gain weight because your intaking a certain amount of calories each day but not enough to boost metabolism. Also, you are allowed to eat as many fruits and veggies as you want because they are negative calories is that bad too? Can't eating those fruit at random times a day boost your metabolism ?

The ABC diet is a diet that promotes Anorexia as a lifestyle, not as a disease.
Your metabolism may slow, but if your intake is continuously low, you will still lose weight. What will most likely happen is muscle (protein) will become the primary source of energy, causing you to lose muscle tone (you may develop a flabby or flaccid look).
Also realize that negative calories are a myth. The ONLY food item that might possibly be a negative caloric food is celery. Most vegetables are very low in calories, and fruits being the higher of the two.
No, your metabolism will not be boosted by random fruit intake. i will explain. The abc diet is based on calorie shifting (feast or famine). The theory is that because your calorie intake is different each day (higher on some days, than others) you trick your body into not going into starvation mode. The problem is that the high calorie days are not high enough to genuinely act as a feast day (with 800 calories being the highest). You will lose weight, but your metabolism will slow down on this diet, period.
I personally don't think this is the most effective or safe plan. If you want some advice, I believe that taking in moderate amounts of protein when waking up and after working out (in addition to what you are taking not instead) will dramatically boost your metabolism and muscle repair.
If you want minimal caloric intake, you can buy whey protein shots at Wal Mart fairly cheaply. These are about 20 grams of protein with nothing else and are maybe 75 calories each.
Best of luck.
Be smart and healthy.

3 weeks isnt a long time but i feel for you man. im 5' 11 and anywhere between 145 - 150. My metabolism is high and i can eat whatever i want and its hard for me to gain weight. If i dont work out for a while i loose weight easy. You need to eat carbs. eat lots of eggs, dairy products, and meat. That crappy greasy fast food will just burn off you like nothing else. Meats, breads and stuff like that will stick. Eat as much as you can and also work out with weights or atleast do pushup, situps, and pullups. if you hammer food and work hard you can gain it in a couple weeks. and dont worry, even if you dont they will put you on a "diet" so that you gain that weight. good luck
yoga may be relaxing but you can also get a good workout an hour of yoga can burn up to 350 calories

On the days where they say "zero calories or fast", research "negative calorie foods". These negative calorie foods will allow you to eat ALL that you want of the negative calorie food, whenever you want and still lose weight. Also, drink 6-10 8oz glasses of water per day. You can add flavoring such as lemon or 0 calorie water enhancer.

I love boot camps. Diets don't work. Eating healthy does. But restricting your food intake is unrealistic way to try and acheive your weight loss goals. Boot camps work well with combination of eating healthy. It also depends how many times a week you attend the boot camp. If it is just once a week, it will have to be complimented with some cardio and weight lifting.
