Fast Start Program
The Cambridge Food For Life Fast Start Program is a unique
program for people who wish to lose weight as rapidly, yet safely, as possible.
The Fast Start Program is a sole source of nutrition and allows you to lose
weight quickly because all you need is three servings of Cambridge Food For Life
Nutrition daily during this program. Through the balanced nutrition of the
Cambridge Food For Life Nutrition formulas, your body will get the critical
nutrients it needs to maintain good health in only 420 calories each day.
- Maximum weight loss in the shortest possible time
- Recommended for people with 10 - 15 pounds or less to lose
- Lose 10 pounds in two weeks (may be partly from loss of excess fluids)
- May be used as a "fast start" to the Regular program for
greater initial weight loss
- May be used periodically along with the Regular Program to accelerate
your weight loss during plateaus or to compensate for periods of overeating
This program is followed for a maximum of two consecutive
weeks. If you have more weight to lose, follow the Regular Program
using the Fast Start Program whenever you feel the need to give your
weight loss progress a little "boost." The Fast Start Program should
not be used for more than two consecutive weeks unless under the supervision
of a physician (see Physician Monitored Program).
How to Follow the Program
- Simply enjoy three servings of the Cambridge Food For Life Nutrition formula
(cereal, soups, or drinks) each day at or near your normal mealtimes. Do not
skip any servings.
- Drink a minimum of eight to ten 8-ounce glasses
of water each day (tea, decaf coffee or other non-caloric beverages
are allowed in addition to, but not substituting for, the water).
How Your Body Loses Weight on a Very-Low-Calorie
While on the Fast Start Program, your body will be going through some adjustments
to a very-low-calorie diet. After a few days, it will convert to using stored
fat as its primary source of fuel usually creating a state of mild ketosis
in the body. This can actually benefit you by creating a mild feeling of euphoria,
extra energy, and some suppression of hunger.
If, at any time on the Fast Start program, you experience
prolonged headache, nausea, vomiting, or any other symptoms, return
to the Regular Program and contact your physician.
