Fresh from co-writing the Flat Belly Diet, Cynthia Sass has released another diet program, called the Cinch diet. This is a one month path to a better metabolism, fewer cravings and a healthier outlook on food. The diet emphasizes smaller portions of highly nutritious food and in a move that is sure to build a following, includes a daily snack of dark chocolate!
On top of the meal plan, the Cinch diet recommends daily exercise. Sass recommends walking as a very accessible exercise and suggests walking for 30 minutes at least five times a day. Could this be the right diet for you? The Cinch diet doesn't focus on calorie or carb counting, so that's a real plus. The structure makes meal planning easy, although somewhat limited. The plan predicts a loss of about 10 pounds over the month, which is slightly above the government's recommendation but not too extreme. And the chocolate requirement is heavenly.
