The Line Diet – Simple and Effective

September 5, 2009


According to a report from CBS, companies have been selling “skinny” for decades and people have been eating it up. Americans only apparently spend about $35 billion a year on weight-loss products and seem to believe that those magic pills will do the work.

Is this really working? No, on the contrary, several diet drugs over the last decade have been associated with serious heart problems and other health-related issues, and diet pills have even been linked to a number of deaths.

The secret to your health and shape resides in a much simpler formula and will save you a lot of money:
a) DIET,

When the loss of weight is only caused by hypo-caloric diet, 50% of the kilos you lose are from the fat you stocked and the other 50% comes from the muscle mass you lose (we all lose muscle mass with age if we do not remain active). This method of losing weight is very difficult to keep up as it will cause fatigue and frustration caused by the diet program itself. On the other hand, the combination of diet with lower calories intake and a regular training activity is the most effective way to burn the love handles and keep your muscle mass and body shape intact.

THE LINE DIET (From Steve Ward):

Steve Ward is a professor of electrical engineering and computer science at MIT. In the 1980s, he described a simple and sure diet technique:

All that you need for my diet is graph paper, a ruler, and a pencil. The horizontal axis is time, one line per day. The vertical axis is weight in kilos. You plot your current weight on the left side of the paper. You plot your desired weight on a desired date towards the right side, making sure that you’ve left the correct number of lines in between (one per day). You draw a line from the current weight/date to the desired weight/date. Every morning you weigh yourself and plot the result. If the point is below the line, you eat whatever you want all day. If the point is above the line, you eat nothing but broccoli or some other low-calorie food“.

Steve’s diet is probably more effective than most popular diets. The only reason why you will not find it on Amazon as a bestselling diet book author is simply because his concept fits into one simple paragraph and the following graph as illustration.
