How to choose which CC is right for you?
Easy, see what meals are on each plan as they are all different and choose the one that entices you the most! Find all the meals listed at jenniathena.com
All my CC diets are structured the same:
✔️So easy to follow
✔️4 day Meal Plan that is repeated
ie. Day 1/4 LOW CARB; Day 2/5 MED CARB: Day 3/6 HIGH CARB; Day 7 Refeed Day
✔️Ingredients available from Aldi to save $$
✔️7 day Cycle with a planned refeed (cheat meal) each week
✔️ 3 main meals and 1 snack a day
✔️ approx 1500cal p/day
Throughout the week, you rotate through low-carb, medium-carb and high & refeed days.
All days require a moderate/high protein intake (100g+) to ensure we maintain as much lean muscle as possible; while Fats are increased on lower carb days.
When you cut carbs, your natural storage space for them (muscle and liver glycogen) gets depleted. This causes your body to to burn stored fat for energy (thus Fat loss effect). This happens in as little as 3 days. When you eat carbs, you fill those stores back up. If you eat too many carbs, the excess carbs eaten are stored as fat.
So it’s not about cutting out carbs completely (or even fats). It’s a science based nutrition plan that zig zags your Carb intake while consuming a calorie controlled diet to induce fatloss, fast.
6️⃣6 week CC Phase 1 & 2 are based on similar Calories and daily macros... they work the same way with just different meals. Follow one for 6 weeks and then switch for variety... or even interchange meals between the two. (Just make sure you swap for another meal with similar CARBS).
2️⃣8️⃣Or if you want a CHALLENGE that will also help you get FIT & TONE as you lose weight form the CC diet... the 28day CC Challenge includes home workouts (optional) as well! (all exercise demos can be found on the highlights of my main Instagram @jenni_athena)
You can follow any plan for any amount of time- don’t quit just because it says 28days or 6 weeks! Continue until you reach your goal 🙌🏼❤️
