GMA: Fifty Shades of Fat
You could lose up to 20 pounds in six weeks and reduce your waistline by four inches. The diet was tested on a group of 500 to see if it really worked.
The book includes a chapter called “Fifty Shades of Fat.” Brown Fat in the neck region could help you lose up to 250 calories every three hours. Along the spine is Beige Fat, which can also help spur weight loss. Toward the butt and thighs you will find White Fat. But the dangerous Visceral Fat in the belly is what this diet is attempting to target.
