It’s a brand new low carb diet that aims to transform your metabolism so your body becomes a fat-burning machine in just 22 days.
What Is The New You In 22 Diet?
To summarise the plan, it’s basically a low carb diet with cheat meals, which makes it much easier to stick to the plan because if you have cravings you can just wait a few days and then indulge them at one of your cheat meals.
There’s a Basic plan and an Advanced plan – they follow the same principles but the Advanced plan ramps everything up a bit.
If you take the Basic plan, you’re allowed to have anything at all at the cheat meals. If you take the Advanced plan, Jonny Bowden recommends that you limit your cheat meals to certain types of carbohydrates and not just eat whatever. But you can do it either way, or you can even mix and match and have some cheat meals that are completely open and some that are more restricted. That’s what I did myself and I found it worked very well.
How New You In 22 Worked For Me
I was lucky enough to get early access to New You In 22 so I was able to test it for myself. I lost 9 pounds on the program, which I’m very happy with because I wasn’t very much over my target weight before starting. My experience is that the more weight you have to lose, the faster you will lose it.
I enjoyed the program, especially the cheat meals 😉
But even on the non-cheat days, I had plenty to eat, I didn’t get hungry and I loved the variety of the meals.
For women, to tone up as well as losing weight, I recommend Metabolic Renewal – see my review here.
What You Get – Instant Download and/or Printed Books
I got the downloadable version because I live in the UK, but you can get the printed books for the same price plus shipping, so if you live anywhere in North America I’d suggest you probably want to get the printed books – especially because when you order the books you also get the downloadable version for free, so you still get instant access and can get started with the program right away as soon as you’ve ordered.
Metabolic Transformation Guide
The Metabolic Transformation Guide explains every aspect of the plan including all the scientific theory and the research behind it, as well as step by step instructions for what you can eat and when, and everything else that you need to do to ensure you start burning fat and losing weight.
The first part of the book explains the importance of burning fat instead of burning sugar and how that will help you to lose weight and have a trimmer body.
The second section sets out the research behind the different steps that you need to do in the program: nutrition, sleep, stress, detox and exercise. And I will say right away that the exercise is not very much, you might be surprised, it’s really mostly walking. In fact on the Basic plan you can just do walking, nothing else.
Section 3 is where you have all the details of exactly what to do to start burning fat. And then right at the end it covers what to do when the program’s over, where to go from here. Because the 22 days can turn your metabolism around so that you start burning fat but obviously if you’ve got a lot of weight to lose you’re not going to lose all of that weight in 3 weeks.
So you’ll want to think about what to do afterward, and that’s quite simple, you could just repeat the plan or you could change from Basic to Advanced or from Advanced to Basic, or whatever you like, but of course you do need to keep doing pretty much the same kinds of things if you want to keep burning fat.
New You In 22 Quick Start Guide
If you want to get started right away you can go straight to chapter 12 of the Metabolic Transformation Guide or you can use the Quick Start Guide. This is a 17-page booklet showing you exactly all the steps that you need to take to start the program.
I found the Quick Start Guide a very clear outline and in fact when I started the plan I just read the Quick Start Guide and went ahead with that right away, without even reading the whole Metabolic Transformation Guide until later.
New You In 22 Meal Plans
You may be wondering exactly what you can eat on this program and you have plenty of ideas here because you’ve got two books of recipes and meal plans. They even include shopping lists so you can get exactly what you need to follow the plan each day. There’s the Metabolic Meals Blueprint and also Metabolic Meals For Life where you can continue with more recipes for after the end of the program.
If you don’t like following recipes at all, that’s okay as well because there’s a ‘roll your own’ section in the guide and you can just pick from the list of foods there and create your own meals.
