USA Diet Plans Help You Lose Weight and Build Muscle by John Erickson

USA Diet Plans are easy to follow, nutritionally accurate, and a brilliant way to generate a permanent change in your eating habits. Each diet plan includes the "Red, White, and Blue Food Combining charts(tm)," a system of eating that exceeds the capabilities of any other diet organization. Your daily meals are customized based on your individual food preferences, personal eating schedule and daily caloric requirements.

USA Diet Plans offers five diet plans; the primary difference between each plan is the amount of protein, carbohydrates and fats allowed at each meal. The diet plan you choose depends on your own particular needs and goals.

The Zone Diet is considered the "all purpose" diet because it has the most profound and positive effect on both mental and physical functioning. The Zone Diet Plan is based on the well known 40/30/30 diet philosophy; each meal embodies the precise ratio of 40% carbohydrate, 30% protein and 30% fat. This ratio of food works to control your blood sugar, which yields greater mental focus, decreased body fat, stronger muscles, enhanced immune function and even stronger fingernails and thicker hair!

The Bodybuilder Diet consists of 40% carbohydrates, 40% protein and 20% fat. This is the same diet Arnold Schwarzenegger followed during his career as a bodybuilder. The calorie recommendations for this diet plan provide your body with 1 gram of protein per pound of lean body mass. An intensive activity is necessary to put this protein to good use; otherwise you never want to eat more protein than what your body requires. The Bodybuilder Diet is a safe and effective way to build muscle without taking steroids or any other harmful substances.

The Low Carb Diet Plan consists of 27-32% carbohydrates, 30% protein and 36-41% fat. Unlike most popular low carb diets, the Low Carb diet program by USA Diet Plans provides enough carbohydrates to support nervous system function and to prevent ketosis. This diet is best for those who want the quickest results in the shortest amount of time, have hit a weight loss plateau, or those in need of a healthy alternative to an extreme low carb diet.
The food charts and recipes contained in the Pyramid Diet Manual contain approximately 52% Carbohydrates, 20% Protein and 28% Fat. Like the other diet plans, it is important most of your carbohydrates come from low glycemic, or slow absorbing kinds like fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Protein sources should be from low fat dairy sources, lean meats, fish, poultry and soy products. Fats are best acceptable in the monounsaturated form like olive oil, nuts, avocado and Smart Balance(r) Buttery Spread.

The purpose of the Circadian Diet is to eat in sync with your body's natural rhythms. The circadian rhythm follows the pattern of night and day. This causes the body to undergo dramatic and intense biological changes within the 24 hour period. The Circadian Diet consists of mostly protein in the morning, a balanced diet throughout the day and higher amounts of carbohydrates at night. This diet is best for people who suffer from SAD (seasonal affective disorder), jetlag, or those who suffer from sleeping disorders or depression.
