Bob Harper’s Jumpstart To Skinny Three Week Weight Loss Plan

Biggest Loser trainer Bob Harper, author of Jumpstart To Skinny, says his goal when writing his book was to come up with a three week plan for women who need to fit into their wedding dress and are willing to do whatever it takes to make it happen. Bob says he wanted to give them real food to eat as part of a healthy program, rather than a starvation cleanse where they are drinking some sort of concoction. He shared the basic guidelines with Dr. Oz and his audience.

Drink coffee every day: Bob says to drink a cup of coffee to give you a little boost of energy and get your metabolism going first thing in the morning, then about 30 minutes later do a low-intensity workout to get your day started.

Take a fish oil supplement: Take 1,000 milligrams before every meal. Bob says fish oils help reduce inflammation, which can cause soreness after a workout.

Meal portions: 40% carbs, 40% protein, 20% fat. Bob says to look at your food as medicine, so it is important to follow his portion guidelines because they will leave you feeling satisfied throughout the day.
