Nothing gets a diet into the public eye quite like a debut on the Dr. Phil show. The P.I.N.K. diet got its moment in the sun on the Dr. Phil infomercial (oops, I mean show) on November 28, 2011. PINK is actually an acronym, standing for Power, Intensity, Nutrition and Kardio (ouch!). This diet is exclusively designed for the female body, so guys move along, there's nothing here for you. For you women, here's a quick overview of the PINK method for good health.
Promising to help you drop 100 pounds or more, the PINK diet was created by nutritionist Cynthia Pasquella. Her $68 plan is a slick package of menu guides, recipes, workout DVDs, exercise plans, an on-line community and a pre-printed certificate of completion. Act now and receive a free PINK Method wristband. No, really, I'm not kidding, you get a wristband.
There are four stages to the PINK program. A lot of the glossy information talks about their unique three phase system, but avid students of counting will detect four stages. Each stage addresses a specific goal and counters common dieting issues.
The first stage is called Reset. This is a short-term diet that is designed to jump-start your metabolism. You begin your exercise regimen with the lovely Jenna on the DVD set and learn proper exercise form and get limber again. Your time spent in this phase is dictated by your starting weight.
Phase two is called Primary. In this stage you are drinking a lot of blender meals and hitting the exercise DVDs with Lisa pretty hard. Phase two is the time where you will lose the majority of your weight. Most days begin with a pink smoothie for breakfast. Lunch and dinner plans focus on chicken or fish and lots of vegetables and brown rice. The recipe book has options for nearly every individual circumstance, including vegetarianism and food allergies.
Phase four (I warned you that there were secretly four phases) is called Preservation. This is a life-long diet and exercise plan for maintaining your goal weight. The recipe book will be your friend as you plan your meals within their guidelines. The exercise DVDs are yours, so you can revisit your favorite routines and keep your cardio (just can't spell it with a K) going.
