If Frank Gotti can change from obese to fit, you can too. At least that is what the Gotti diet promises. Heartbreaker Frank Gotti Agnello from "Growing up Gotti" took the help of his doctor, his lacrosse trainer and his mother to write a diet book. His plan to end the diet exercises is similar to the one he followed, resulting in 80 pounds of weight loss and a transformation from fat boy to lean and strong teenager.
There are no extreme guidelines or structured meal plans, just suggestions to restrict certain foods and exercise. The list of foods to avoid is reasonable and prevents you from eating refined cereals and sweets, but still allows some flexibility – Gotti admits that he "couldn't live without pasta".
The young Gotti devised a seven-step plan that should help him look and feel better for his upcoming TV show. These steps include exercise advice, tips on managing food choices, and suggestions on how to control portions for everything from mother's home cooking to fast food.
What distinguishes the Gotti diet?
This diet is written by a teenager, a personality on the reality TV show. The recommended guidelines appeal to a young audience. Gotti takes a comprehensive approach: cut out junk food, pay attention to portion size, and exercise to look good. And to look good, Frank Gotti recommends his top care products.
What is the Gotti diet?
After learning that he was a morbidly obese adolescent at risk of disease and disease in adulthood, Gotti decided to change his lifestyle as follows:
First step: Confirm that you have a weight problem. Get motivated to look better and feel better.
Second step: ask for help and support. Ask your friends and family for support so you can take better care of yourself. For example, ask your brother to yell at you the next time you order fries.
Step three: Establish the mind-body connection. Separate your self-esteem from your body image and know that weight loss takes time and effort. Don't be too hard on yourself.
Fourth step: Examine your eating habits. Keep a food diary for at least a week to determine what, when, where and why you eat. The book contains information on carbohydrates, fats and proteins, as well as tips on how to include them in your daily diet. You will learn to limit portion sizes and not give in to group pressure when choosing foods. The USDA's food pyramid prompts you to eat healthy carbohydrates, lean protein, low-fat dairy products, healthy fats, and limited sweets.
Step five: learn to make better food choices. Tips for eating: Order the starter menu so that you eat smaller portions, reject the bread basket, choose grilled or grilled dishes and avoid creamy sauces and salad dressings. The diet also offers other helpful tips, such as replacing the low-fat selection and telling the waiter that you have a food allergy, to make sure you get what you asked for. Gotti says that isn't lying because dieters should be allergic to high-fat foods. There are additional suggestions for healthier choices for American, Mexican, Chinese, Japanese, and of course Italian cuisine.
Sixth step: Familiarize yourself with weight loss and exercise.
Step seven: lift extra pounds, don't gain them. Add cardiovascular exercises and weight lifting routines.
The plan also includes cooking tips and food safety guidelines for hand washing and food handling. Mama Gotti, who may be to blame for eating so much garbage in his youth, explains how her son's plan has now helped the whole family.
What are the weight loss expectations?
This diet does not promise specific weight loss results. The plan reminds you that you haven't gained weight overnight – and you won't lose it overnight.
Is movement promoted?
Practice is an integral part of this plan. Increase the fun of activities and spend less time watching TV. Train with a friend to stay motivated. Gotti insists that physical education is not enough daily exercise. Steps six and seven contain special training plans that you can use to burn calories and stay fit. Cardiovascular recommendations include team sports, cycling, running, swimming, and hip-hop dancing. You can also find weight lifting exercises and schedules, along with photos of Gotti demonstrating techniques.
Are supplements recommended?
No additions are recommended in this plan. Instead, the plan suggests that you can get all the necessary nutrients by eating a variety of foods every day. The use of popular weight loss supplements is also discouraged because of their potential dangers.
