What the 4 Day Diet does:

Our goal with the 4 Day Diet program is simple: to help you lose a BUNCH of fat
in just 4 days, WITHOUT sacrificing metabolism or the fear of rebound weight
gain.

Here's how we get it done:

The 3 Types of Days in the 4 Day Diet
Program

Within the 4 Days of the 4 Day Diet program there are 3 different types of days:

1: Fast Day
2: Moderate Carb Day
3: Low Carb Day (used twice)

In just a minute were going to go over the specifics of each type of day, but
quickly let's take a look at the full four days in chart form then talk about the two
types of meals you'll be using throughout the week.

Carb Syncing, Nutrient Combing, and Two
Types of Meals

Over the course of the 4 Day Diet you will consume 2 types of meals:

1. Protein + Fat (P+F)
2. Protein + Carbs (P+C)

Again, these are the two "approved" styles of meals that allow us to implement
the food combining principles we previously discussed (avoiding the "deadly
combination" of carbs and fat).

Secondly, this type of meal set up allows us to employ Carb Syncing where you
will be eating carbs earlier in the day when insulin sensitivity and carbohydrate
tolerance are at their peak, while avoiding them in the later hours when these
things naturally decline.

For this reason, the Moderate Carbohydrate Day will start with P+C meals
around your morning workout and transition to P+F meals later in the day. The
Low Carb Day will consist of all P+F meals.

The Numbers

The Moderate Carb Day

On the Moderate Carb Day you'll consume 8 x Lean Body Mass in calories with a
macronutrient breakdown of 35% Protein, 40% Carbohydrates, and 25% fat.

**See Appendix A for calculating Lean Body Mass and Macronutrient
Breakdowns.

Morning meals will be protein + carb (minimal fat), and afternoon/evening meals
will be protein + fat (minimal carbs).













NOTE: The final meal of each day is always the same. One scoop of
Prograde Protein + 1 serving of EFA Icon.

The protein will serve to provide amino acids to muscle tissue to offset muscle
breakdown as you sleep and facilitate recovery within the body. Also, research
Sample Moderate Carb Day; Morning MRT Workout

has shown that the many benefits of fish oil are only seen once the compound is
absorbed in to the various cells of the body, thus it is recommended that you
consume EFA Icon just prior to bedtime to avoid these super fats from simply
being burned as energy during the day.

Summary for The Moderate Carb Day: Consume 8 x LBM in calories with a
macronutrient breakdown of 35% Protein, 40% Carbohydrates, 25% Fat. Free
veggies are permissible as desired.

Low Carb Days

On the two Low Carb days youll consume 8 x Lean Body Mass in calories with a
macronutrient breakdown of 40% Protein, 10% Carbohydrates, 50% Fat.

**See Appendix A for calculating Lean Body Mass and Macronutrient
Breakdowns.

As the name suggests, on Low Carb days you will be following a low carb style
diet to keep insulin low and to maximize the effectiveness of the prolonged
increase in metabolism caused by the Metabolic Resistance Training sessions.

All meals will be protein + fat (minimal carbs).

Naturally, there will be some "trace" amounts of carbs that naturally occur in the
various protein and fat sources you choose. Just aim to keep your daily carb
intake to less than 10% of total calories.

A sample timeline for Low Carb days is below.

meals on this day are P+F. Free veggies are permissible as desired.

The Fast Day

The purpose of the Fast Day is simple: to create a massive calorie deficit.

On this day you will consume nothing but fluids (non-calorie beverages in
moderation are OK, but water should comprise the majority of your fluid intake)
while strategically supplementing with Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) to
offset and prevent any catabolism of muscle.

Sample Low Carb Day

8:00 am Breakfast Meal (P+F)

1:00 pm Lunch Meal (P+F)

5:00 pm Mid-afternoon Meal (P+F)

7:00 pm Dinner Meal (P+F)

10:00 pm Pre-bed Snack (P+F)

To put it in simple terms, BCAAs are the best part of protein. So, if you were to
consume 10 grams of BCAAs, youre essentially consuming 10 grams of protein,
only its super protein.

The guidelines for BCAA intake on this day are as follows:

0.3 grams per pound of Body Weight (total body weight, not lean body mass)
split over 6 doses taken throughout the day.

So, for a 200 lb individual, theyd require 60 grams of BCAAs, split over 6 doses,
or six 10-gram doses taken throughout the day.

For a 150 lb individual, 45 grams of BCAAs, or six 7.5 gram doses taken
throughout the day.

You get the point 0.3 x Body Weight split evenly over 6 doses throughout the
day.

And, as I always do for my customers, I put in a few calls to get you a 15%
discount on one of the best BCAA blends on the market from Prograde Nutrition.

The 4 Day Diet and 24/7 Fat Loss
Supplementation Plan

IMPORTANT NOTE: Please realize that the majority of the supplements recommended
are replacing food. While there is up front cost, you are actually saving quite a bit of
money over the course of the program by decreasing your grocery expenses. Bottom
line, following the program to the letter along with the supplements (most of which are
just food replacements) will get you the best results, and over the course of the next 8
weeks I guarantee youll spend considerably less on the recommended supplements
than you would buying your regular groceries and going out to eat. Just a little up front
perspective as you move forward to get the most out of the next 8 weeks.

As youve seen throughout this manual, Ive recommended the use of several
fundamental/foundation supplements that I believe everyone should be using to
maximize results and overall health.

These are food-based and nutrient-based supplements (protein, carbohydrate, essential
fatty acids, essential vitamins/minerals/antioxidants), NOT bogus quick-fix supplements
making outrageous claims.

The supplements that I recommend come from Prograde Nutrition and are available at
www.ProgradeDiscount.com (a special link for 4 Day Diet and 24/7 Fat Loss
customers).

Best part, as alluded to above, I like to work out special deals for my customers, so I got
on the phone with Prograde and got them to agree to give you 15% OFF as someone
who has chosen to invest in the 24/7 Fat Loss system. Pretty cool, huh? Just be sure
to use the special links in the program materials along with the coupon code 247fl at
checkout (all lowercase, no spaces) and get 15% off your entire order.

2011 247FatLoss.com. All Rights Reserved.


Why do I recommend Prograde? Simple:

First and foremost, they are the brand of supplements that I personally use. If I
dont use and believe it to be beneficial to ME, I dont recommend it to my
customers. Period.

The supplements are of the highest quality and you get exactly what the labels
says (they are a certified GMP [Good Manufacturing Practices] A rated
manufacturer; the highest possible certification for quality control). This is a
MAJOR problem with other brands, and one of the major reasons I am so
comfortable recommending Prograde.

Most importantly, they are an honest, stand-up company that only produces the
foundation supplements that truly make a difference - the exact supplements I
recommend - and nothing more. They dont try to get over on consumers by
putting together a bunch of B.S. products with the many quick-fix claims that
you often see.

The specific supplements I recommend for use with the 4 Day Diet and 24/7 Fat
Loss programs are:

Prograde Protein (the Stevia sweetened, cold-processed,
pharmaceutical grade protein supplement) Prograde Protein is the perfect
protein to use as a convenient meal or snack on any day of the 4 Day Diet and
24/7 Fat Loss program, as well as the pre-bed meal daily. Its made from cold-
processed, pharmaceutical grade whey (instead of the high-temperature
processing that other manufacturers use, severely degrading protein quality), and
contains the full spectrum of amino acids (including a hefty dose of branch chain
amino acids) to promote the retention of your hard-earned calorie-burning lean
2011 247FatLoss.com. All Rights Reserved.
muscle tissue. Available in Chocolate, Vanilla, and Orange Crme. Three
containers will provide a 4-week supply of protein to be used in the pre-bed
meal and as a convenient meal placement throughout the diet days.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Please remember that each shake replaces a meal for only
a couple bucks (there arent many healthy, nutrient rich meals out there that cost
a couple dollars), and make the food-cost of each day substantially cheaper.

Prograde Workout (Post workout recovery beverage) - ideal formulation of
fast acting proteins and carbohydrates to support stimulate calorie-burning lean
muscle mass and recovery. Use on resistance training days. One bottle will
last approximately 4 weeks.

Prograde Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) You will be consuming 0.3
grams of Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) per pound of body weight split
over 6 doses on Fast Days to offset and prevent the breakdown and catabolism
of muscle (i.e. muscle loss).

To put it in simple terms, BCAAs are the best part of protein. So, if you were to
consume 10 grams of BCAAs, youre essentially consuming 10 grams of protein,
only its super protein. Two bottles will last approximately 4 weeks.


Prograde Metabolism (fat loss accelerator and metabolism support)
Prograde Metabolism is Progrades brand new fat burning and metabolism
support supplement. Its backed by a ton of science (Ive honestly never seen a
supplement so well researched) and will absolutely accelerate your results on the
24/7 Fat Loss program even further. One bottle will last approximately 4
weeks.

2011 247FatLoss.com. All Rights Reserved.
VGF 25+ for men/women (multi-nutrient for men/women) VGF 25+ is
MUCH more than a multi-vitamin as its made directly from more than 25 whole
vegetables, greens and fruits (thus the name). One bottle will last
approximately 4 weeks.

EFA Icon (extremely pure, potent essential fatty acids) Fish oil (omega-3
fatty acid) is the number one supplement that I believe everyone should be taking
for fat loss and overall health, no matter who you are, across the board. To
name just a few of the fat burning and health benefits these wonder fats
possess, omega-3 fatty acids have been shown to decrease the risk for
developing heart disease and cancer, decrease blood pressure, improve liver
and kidney function, reduce joint pain, improve vision, improve diabetic
conditions, decrease occurrences and intensities of migraine headaches,
increase circulating levels of leptin, reduce stress, and increase metabolic
rate.

If you are not using fish oil, make it a point to start supplementing with it right
away. As for EFA icon, it has several benefits over conventional fish oil in that it
is the most absorbed form of fish oil, highly potent and high quality without any
toxins such as trace mercury.

Not only does this carry the quality benefit, but because of its high potency, you
dont have to worry about choking down large quantities of big horse pill, low-
quality fish oil. In fact, just 2 small pills are the equivalent of TEN large standard
fish oil capsules and only a total of a gram of fat. One bottle will last
approximately 4 weeks.

Again, keep in mind that protein powder, pre/post workout beverage, and BCAAs
are essentially FOOD -- while the cost adds up a bit, you are substituting them for
MEALS and they average only a couple bucks each (there arent many healthy,
nutrient-rich meals out there that only cost a couple bucks).
2011 247FatLoss.com. All Rights Reserved.

This is how I actually SAVE money on groceries each month (the regular use of
Prograde Protein, Workout, and BCAAs typically cuts my food cost by one third
each month, easily), and when you use them, youll do the same.

One last very important thing - they also offer a very convenient shipped-right to your
door monthly program (this is what I do) in which you get free shipping and a huge
discount on bulk orders.

Basically, they send you a months supply each month of the supplements you choose
(so you never have to worry about reordering or running out), give you a huge discount,
and then hook you up with FREE shipping on top of it.

I told you; theyre a great company. I dont know of any other company that does this
and Ive been using this service for quite some time and love it.

FAQs

Q: What drinks (coffee, milk, flavored water, diet sodas, etc) are permitted?

A: The majority of your fluid intake should be water. Strive to consume at least a half
gallon a day, even more on Fast Days.

You may consume non-calorie beverages in moderation (this does not include milk).

The rule is simple: if it has calories, dont drink it. If it does not have calories, you may
drink it in moderation. 90% of your fluid intake should be water.

Q: I have my calorie and macronutrient needs calculated based on the
information provided in Appendix A, but how do I know how many calories or
how much of a macronutrient is in certain foods?

A: If the food has a label, then youll find that exact information on the label, from which
you can choose the appropriate quantity. For things like fruit, veggies, meats, etc, that
do not have labels, its really easy to look up this information. The site I recommend is
www.NutritionData.com.

For example, lets say you have all your needs calculated and a particular meal calls for
27 grams of protein. Youd like to have chicken so you go to www.NutritionData.com
and type in chicken breast, select the appropriate listing, and end up on this page:

==> http://www.nutritiondata.com/facts/poultry-products/703/2

There is a drop down menu for the serving size at the top of the listing. I always
recommend selecting 1 oz for meats, and then multiplying from there.

2011 247FatLoss.com. All Rights Reserved.
So, we see 1 oz of cooked chicken breast contains 9 grams of protein. So, since we
need 27 grams, well eat 3 oz. Simple as that.

Now, lets say this is a protein and fat meal and you also need 14 grams of fat. One
tablespoon of butter or any oil contains approximately 14 grams of fat so youll use that
amount.

3 oz of Chicken Breast, mixed veggies drizzled with one tablespoon of olive oil there
you go, thats your meal

Once you do this for a couple days, the whole process become VERY easy and youll
know exactly how much to eat.

Here are a couple of standard measurements for your convenience:

1 oz cooked lean meat = 9 grams of protein
1 tablespoon of any oil or butter = 14 grams of fat
1/4 cup of nuts = 14 grams of fat

For other foods www.NutritionData.com is a great resource.

Q: What if I go over my calorie or macronutrient needs for a particular meal?

A: Thats more than fine. Youre not going to hit the individual meal numbers right on
the head with each meal, rather those numbers should be looked at more as guidelines
to help you achieve your daily totals, which are the figures that matter most.

So, if you were to go over by 5 grams of protein in one meal, you can make up for it by
eating 5 grams less in another. As long as you are coming within 5% of your daily totals
for each macronutrient at the end of the day, youre good to go.

2011 247FatLoss.com. All Rights Reserved.

Q: Do I need to count the calories from the pre-bed meal of each day (1 scoop of
Prograde Protein + 1 serving of Prograde EFA Icon)?

A: No, since this meal is always the same every day, I automatically considered it when
determining the formulas for calculating your daily calorie and macronutrient needs.
Just count the first 5 meals each day and put the pre-bed meal on autopilot .


Q: How many grams of fat am I allowed to have in my Protein + Carb meals and
how many grams of carbs am I allowed to have in my Protein + Fat meals? It
seems that most foods contain at least some of each nutrient. And do I have to
count these extra grams in my daily totals?

A: Youll find that most foods do contain small amount of other nutrients. For example,
most protein sources, even very lean cuts of meat, contain some fat and some fat
sources, like nuts, contain a small amount of carbs.

The rule is this: Strive to keep the unwanted nutrient to less than 10 grams for that
meal. In other words, for protein + fat meals, strive to keep carbs under 10 grams, and
for protein + carb meals, strive to keep fat under 10 grams.

To answer your second question, yes, these extra grams do need to be counted
toward your daily total. Keep a record of your meals each day and subtract from
another meal. For example, lets say a Protein + Fat meal you consume contains 4
grams of carbs. Simply subtract those carbs from a future Protein + Carb meal.

Again, the major focus should be arriving within 5% of your daily targets at the end of
the each day.


2011 247FatLoss.com. All Rights Reserved.
Q: What about special populations such as diabetics or those with
cardiovascular disease? Is this diet safe for them?

A: For anyone with any kind of medical condition, you must consult with your doctor
before beginning any diet & exercise program to make sure it is a good fit for you, and
always, always follow his or her advice.


Q: On what Days should I consume a post-workout beverage like Prograde
Workout?

Prograde Workout is recommended on the Moderate Carbohydrate Day only. Use the
remainder of the container during the 24/7 Fat Loss program.

Remember to use the code 247fl to save 15% on your order.


Q: Can I do the 4 Day Diet Program more than once?

After finishing the 4 day program, you may repeat the program once more. If you
choose to perform the program back to back, insert a Cheat Day after your first cycle
before repeating the 4 day program the second time.


Q: Im a petite female and my calorie intake on is coming out really low, just
under 800 calories is this right?

A: One population the calorie formulas tend to be tricky for are petite females (generally
53 and shorter) who because of their smaller size naturally dont have a large sum of
lean body mass relative to taller individuals. For example, lets take someone who is
51 and weights 120 lbs @ 22% body fat. Her lean body mass would be 96.5 lbs.
2011 247FatLoss.com. All Rights Reserved.

At 22% body fat, wed use the calorie multiplier of 8 x LBM on Non Resistance Training
Diet Days. This equates to 776 calories, and yes, thats a tad low.

That said, this is a short term 4 day program so the calorie intake is meant to be lower
than normal. Still, adding 100 to 150 calories on each day for this population is OK.


Q: I weight 180 lbs and using the BCAA calculations need 54 grams of BCAAs on
Fast Days? Since each capsule is .5 grams, that means I need to take 108
capsules on Fast Days? Is that healthy?

A: Remember, BCAAs are simply super protein. So, its the protein equivalent of
eating about 6 oz of cooked chicken, which is completely healthy. The reason why
BCAAs come in capsules is because the powder tastes HORRIBLE if you were to just
try to mix it or swallow it. Kind of similar to fish oil they encapsulate it to save your
taste buds. But yes, its completely fine and healthy.

Transitioning from the 4 Day Diet Program

After finishing the 4 day program, you may repeat the program once more if desired. If
you choose to perform the program back to back, insert a Cheat Day after your first
cycle before repeating the 4 day program the second time.

After 1 or 2 cycles of the 4 Day Diet program, transition in to the main 24/7 Fat Loss
program.

4 Day Diet Workout Program

10 Tips to Train SAFE!

It is very important for all of us to train conservatively and not overdo things.

1) Don't do any exercise that you aren't sure how to do. Always get personal instruction
from a certified trainer.

2) Don't do anything that hurts or "doesn't feel right". There are plenty of alternative
exercises for every movement. Just ask us on the 24-7 forum for substitutions.

3) Whenever you start a NEW program, use lighter weights than normal, and only 1 set
per exercise. You must expect extra soreness when starting a new program just
because of the new exercises, so don't try to set world records in a new program right
away.

4) If you need extra recovery within the workout or between workouts, don't hesitate to
take it. Safety first.

5) Use a spotter if you are training with heavy weights. If you train alone at home, follow
my recommendations in the manual and do NOT train to failure.

6) Check your ego at the gym door and start with the easier alternative exercises if
appropriate, even if you have exercised in the past. The new exercises, and new style
of movements will cause muscle soreness even from workouts you think "look easy".

7) Do NOT do interval training more than 4 times per week. Even pro athletes don't play
hard everyday, so why should we?


2011 247FatLoss.com. All Rights Reserved.
8) Never skip a warm-up. Use the general bodyweight warm-ups and the specific warm-
up sets in each workout.

9) If you want to start the program but you have an injury, get medical attention and
have a professional therapist rehabilitate your injury before starting an exercise
program.

10) Check with your doctor before starting any new exercise or diet program. All
together now, "Safety first!"

Bonus 11) If you decide to use running as your form of interval training, make sure you
have good running shoes, always do an extra thorough warm-up, and choose a safe
running surface (grass or trails rather than pavement/concrete). If you use a treadmill,
please operate it safely.

Appendix A: Calculating Lean Body Mass and
Macronutrient Breakdown

Lean Body Mass (LBM) and Calorie Needs

Your lean body mass is your weight, minus your body fat. For example, if you weigh
200 lbs at 20% body fat (40 lbs of fat), then your lean body mass is 160 lbs (200 40).

With that data you can then determine your calorie and macronutrient needs.

Here is a recap of the calorie needs for each day:

Moderate Carb Day: Total calories equate to 8 x LBM. Macro breakdown of 35%
protein, 40% carbs, 25% fat. (3 P+C meals followed by 2 P+F meals).

Low Carb Day: Total calories equate to 8 x LBM. Macro breakdown of 40% protein,
10% carbs, 50% fat. (5 P+F meals).

So, lets take the Moderate Carb Day for example along with our sample individual at
200 lbs and 20% body fat.

Again, to calculate lean body mass, simply subtract fat weight from total weight (the left
over is lean body mass; everything except fat). Here are the simple formulas.

Total Weight x Body Fat % = Fat Weight
Total Weight Fat Weight = Lean Body Mass

Plugging the numbers in:

2011 247FatLoss.com. All Rights Reserved.
200 x 20% = 40 lbs
200 40 = 160 lbs

This individual has a lean body mass of 160 lbs. From there we can easily calculate
calories for a Moderate Carb Day: 160 (LBM) x 8 (calories per pound) = 1280 calories

We also know that 35% of this should come from protein, 40% carbs, and 25% fat,
giving us the calorie totals per macronutrient of:

1280 (total calories) x 35% (protein) = 448 calories from protein
1280 (total calories) x 40% (carbs) = 512 calories from carbs
1280 (total calories) x 25% (fat) = 320 calories from fat

To convert these caloric values to grams for easy counting, we can divide by the caloric
values of each which are as follows:

Fat: 9 cal per gram
Protein: 4 cal per gram
Carbohydrates: 4 cal per gram

This means that the 200 lb individual in our example should be consuming 36 grams of
fat (320 / 9), 112 grams of protein (448 / 4), and 128 grams of carbohydrate (512 /4).

The cool thing about converting everything to grams is that you no longer have to worry
about counting calories. You simply count the grams of each macronutrient you
consume as indicated in the nutrition facts.

This makes things much easier considering the way our food labels are organized. If
you are unsure as to the nutrition content of a particular product, you can look up the
info easily at an online nutrition database such as www.NutritionData.com or
www.CalorieKing.com.

From there wed then determine the macronutrient needs for each specific meal. On
Moderate Calorie Days, we are consuming 3 P+C Meals followed by 2 P+F meals, for a
total of 5 portions of protein and 3 portions of carbs, and 2 portions of fat.

Using the numbers we came up with previously, this gives us a per meal breakdown of:

Fat: 36 total grams / 2 meals = 18g of fat per P+F meal
Carbs: 128 total grams / 3 meals = 43g of carbs per P+C meal
Protein: 112 total grams / 5 meals = 22g per meal

Therefore:

Each P+C meal would be roughly 22g of protein + 43g of carbs (minimal fat)
Each P+F meal would be roughly 22g of protein + 18g of fat (minimal carbs)

We can then do the same thing for the Low Carb Days.

This individual again has a lean body mass of 160 lbs (200 lbs total weight, 20% body
fat). From there we can easily calculate calories for a Low Carb Day: 160 (LBM) x 8
(calories per pound) = 1280 calories

We also know that 40% of this should come from protein, 10% carbs, and 50% fat,
giving us the calorie totals per macronutrient of:

1280 (total calories) x 40% (protein) = 512 calories from protein
1280 (total calories) x 10% (carbs) = 128 calories from carbs
1280 (total calories) x 50% (fat) = 640 calories from fat

To convert these caloric values to grams for easy counting, we can divide by the caloric
values of each which are as follows:
2011 247FatLoss.com. All Rights Reserved.

Fat: 9 cal per gram
Protein: 4 cal per gram
Carbohydrates: 4 cal per gram

This means that the 200 lb individual in our example should be consuming 71 grams of
fat (640 / 9), 128 grams of protein (512 / 4), and 32 grams of carbohydrate (128 / 4).

From there wed then determine the macronutrient needs for each specific meal. On
Low Carb Days, we are consuming 5 P+F Meals calling for 5 portions of protein and 5
portions of fat.

Using the numbers we came up with previously, this gives us a per meal breakdown of:

Fat: 71 total grams / 5 meals = 14g of fat per P+F meal
Protein: 128 total grams / 5 meals = 26g per meal

Therefore:

Each P+F meal would be roughly 26g of protein + 14g of fat (minimal carbs)
Also, as mentioned previously there will be "trace" amounts of carbs that
naturally occur in your protein and fat sources. Just aim to keep carbs under
10% of calories on these days, which in our above example is 32 grams of carbs
