If you’ve been researching about the Fat Decimator, you probably came across the Lean Belly Prescription Menu. It’s actually a diet plan almost similar to the Fat Decimator. It was formulated by the famous doctor Travis Scott who you might have seen in The Bachelors and his own TV program, The Doctors. The concept is this: lose 15 pounds of dangerous fats in just four weeks. It might sound too good to be true, but there’s science to back it up.
Travis is an emergency doctor; hence, he has the medical expertise. The main idea of his diet plan is to purge the unhealthy foods, almost the same way as the Fat Decimator would do.
Not really a ‘diet plan’
Users and even Travis himself claim that there’s no way you can fail on this diet because it’s not necessarily a ‘diet plan’. It’s more of a prescription for food items like how medicine is prescribed by a doctor. The menu consists of nutritious foods and those that have hidden calories.
The target of the Lean Belly Menu is to change the lifestyle of individuals slowly by looking for healthier alternatives for their meals. One example is switching soda to water or tea. It also allows a person to eat healthy foods up to four times a day without the usual junk food items.
Overall, this seeks to flush out risky fats that can cause heart attacks, diabetes, stroke, and other serious conditions.
A person can start with Travis’ “law of leanness” where he gets to know the “Pick 3 to Lean”. On the start, a person would only need to choose three options from the 12 available in the list. It makes the lifestyle change gradual and easy to follow.
Travis encourages the practitioners to master the first three changes before moving on to the next one and finishing the list. The changes aren’t really massive. One example is adding a serving of healthy dairy to your meals during the day. Easy but when done consistently can incur a big change.
What’s on the plate?
The Lean Belly Prescription Menu doesn’t really strip your meals with specific ingredients. It just encourages a person to swap unhealthy items to healthier options. You can start on what Travis called as “nature’s perfect foods”: milk, eggs, berries, tomatoes, and nuts. Getting about 20-40 grams of lean protein per meal is advisable as well. You can get this from legumes, vegetables, whole grains, and healthy fats.
There isn’t a strict calorie count rule that one should follow on this menu. The only mentioned calorie allowance is the 200-calorie snacks. That, still, is a lenient allowance for such small meals. You have to add a source of protein to increase your fat burns and maintain the health of your muscles.
Travis suggests that snacks be eaten at mid-morning and mid-afternoon to control blood sugar as well as cravings that may lead to overeating during the main meals of the day. You know what’s the best part? You can still sip your favorite booze! A small glass for the ladies and two for the gentlemen would be fine.
Small, cumulative changes
As you see, the Lean Belly Prescription Menu isn’t taxing to follow. You only have to change three things at a time to have a slimmer tummy. The target is to achieve cumulative results over time. This would only be possible if you heed each advice on Travis’ book.
The prescription starts small and maintains the little changes working until you observe a big change. It’s more practical than other weight loss programs.
When it comes to the realization of the 15-pound reduction, the goal is achievable through consistency. Your genetics, physical activity, current weight, and metabolism will be factors to how much you can lose in the end.
What most practitioners of the Lean Belly Menu love the most is the NEAT or No-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis. It targets to burn your fats without having to go to the gym or drop everything and exercise. But don’t get this wrong. NEAT isn’t about not moving and expecting your belly fats to burn. What it will do is utilize your activities to convert as an effortless exercise.
For example, instead of riding the elevator, you take the stairs or walk the short distance going to the grocery store instead of using your car. You can also stand when using your phone or having a short break from work. All these will make a difference even if you fail to render a 30-minute exercise each day.
There isn’t really a specific set of exercise drill on Travis’ book since it’s more of a menu that a weight loss program.
How does it differ with Fat Decimator?
The number one point of difference is the strictness of the program. The Fat Decimator requires the commitment to certain changes and routines. It also includes exercise that the Lean Belly Prescription Menu doesn’t have.
These are all understandable as the Fat Decimator and the Lean Belly Menu exist in two different spheres; the former as a weight loss program and the latter as a diet prescription. In spite of that, the two shares some similar schools of weight loss.
Both focus on revamping a person’s diet. It encourages the person to switch to healthier alternatives without starving or keeping clockwork on the calorie count. These two fitness trends promote exercise but in different ways. Another similarity is their divergence from the conventional practice of losing weight. However, it’s safe to say that Kyle’s Fat Decimator is way holistic than Travis’ prescription menu.
The Lean Belly Prescription Menu is another interesting weight loss strategy. Like the Fat Decimator, it may or may not work for some people. The good thing is that the approaches are not extreme and even a busy mom can follow it. What about you? Which do you think works best? Let us know below in the comment section!
