The Shangri-La Diet â€“ all you need to know
The Shangri-La Diet plan is quite unusual and very controversial. The author Seth Roberts presents his revolutionary ideas in some extremely simple and easy to follow diet guidelines:
Small portions of these flavorless â€œfoodsâ€ should be taken at least one hour before a meal in order to suppress your appetite. The recommended oils are canola oil and extra-light olive oil, or any flavorless light olive oil. As for the sugar – you can use white or any type of sugar.
The Shangri-La Diet is based on the set point theory of weight control and the taste-calorie association.
Set point theory
Professor Roberts believes that at any particular moment your body weight corresponds to your current set point. If you try to lose weight from your current set point, you wonâ€™t succeed, unless you lower your set point.
The purpose of the Shangri-La Diet is to lower your set point by breaking the taste-calorie association.
To lower your set point you should eat foods that have little or no flavor â€“ but still supply calories to your body.
In fact this is how you break the taste-calorie association – eating flavorless foods lower your set point and tasty foods raise it. In the first case your body wants to get leaner and the second â€“ to get fatter.
Successful weight loss
Professor Roberts has lost 35 pounds in three months and has kept them off for quite a long time already. Many of his friends have also used the diet very successfully.
