Just thinking about feasting while you follow a diet plan seems to be somewhat unreal, but reviews by knowledgeable nutritionist support the idea. This little known information is incorporated into the Feast Away Your Fat program (FYFA) by Nate Miyaki.
What is this program all about?
One of the most attractive components of this particular plan is the incorporation of a “cheat day” every single week. Not only do you get to have big meals every night, you get an entire day to pig out on your favorite foods with no restrictions. There is a good reason for this. By increasing your calorie intake one day you prevent your body from lowering its metabolism to adjust for the days when you are focused on weight loss. (for more information read this article on Leptin hormone)
Additionally, there is the psychological benefit of being able to look forward to that one day during the week, which makes it less likely you cheat on the other days. This idea of cycling calories in one form or another is one of the secrets that professional body builders use to get extremely low body fat percentages. [see this program]

What are the advantages?
One of the very attractive feature of the diet plan is that it does not completely eliminate your favorite foods from your meals. In fact you are encouraged to eat a large meal at night chocked full of healthy carbohydrates to sustain you through the night. And of course, one also has the cheat day to look forward to as well. This makes the plan easy to stick with since being able to eat whatever you want once a week gets rid of the cravings that accompany most diet plans. Of course, during the rest of the week you will need to make substantial changes in the way you eat and the foods you choose to eat.
The FYFA diet program works well for anyone with an excessive amount of fat to lose. An important part of the plan is adding healthy whole foods to your diet and focusing more on the timing of your meals. The diet is extremely easy to follow, especially since it does not require that every single recommendation is followed before results can be seen.
But I heard that “breakfast is the most important meal of the day”?
If you are serious about losing weight, then you have to forget all the “scientific lies” our foods industry is spreading the world for decades. The food industry has only one goal – that is “just make people eat more”
What is the meaning of breakfast anyway?
Break your fast- right?
So what is fast or fasting?
It means abstaining yourself from eating anything for a period of 12 hours in day. For example, if you had your dinner at 8 PM tonight, then don’t eat anything until tomorrow 8 AM. That’s why your afternoon meal is called “lunch”, last meal as “dinner” (and NOT “mid-day breakfast” or “late night breakfast!”) In today’s lifestyle, we hardly fast more than 8 hours.
If you can do 12 hours of fasting successfully, then you can slowly expand fasting period to 16, 18 and even 24 hours!
Alright… now Tell me exactly how FYFA program works?
Basically, the plan recommends eating light meals during the day, allowing you to be alert and productive. The feasting occurs at night and allows you to get good quality sleep while energy reserves of muscle and tissue are replenished. The fat you lose will stay off because the healthier eating plan is easy to follow and the different lifestyle very sustainable.
Imagine this scenario…
You come to home after a day of hard work at office; you had tons of workload and tension; you are stressed by the time you reach home. The only way you can feel relaxed is by having great dinner; when you feel fuller and satisfied you naturally get good night sleep. When your stomach feels full, you feel bit of hungry below tummy! If you are married or in a relationship, then it is the perfect time to have some romance, get tired and get great sleep together!
The theory of “don’t eat anything after 8 PM” is simply unrealistic and hard to follow for majority of people. This diet program is NOT science based, it is lifestyle based theory, hence easier to follow and stick to.
What are the Downside?
Of course, this program will not work if you are an emotional eater or have eating disorder. If you are emotional eater, then you should consult a Doctor and get treatment for hormonal imbalance. You can lose weight without exercise because almost 90% results comes from your diet alone. However, there is no way to lose weight without some determination and persistence.
One more problem: If you are a women this “feasting” approach doesn’t work well due to hormonal, physiological and emotional difference. Continue reading to discover other alternatives.
I’m still skeptic and feel that this program isn’t for me!
No problem, let me show you few alternative methods.
- The FYFA is based on “intermittent fasting” theory and modified to meet busy lifestyle. Intermittent fasting has been proven to be effective weight loss diet, this theory was made popular by fitness and nutrition expert Brad Pilon, I suggest you to get a copy of his Eat-Stop-Eat diet program. Ideal for both men and women
- If you need balanced meal through the day due to health condition, then it makes perfect sense to follow a Gluten free diet for a month. I suggest this program called Body Fuel System
- Although FYFA program can work for women, it is mainly designed for men . If you are woman and willing to workout, then I recommend John Barban’s Venus Factor program. Since the program is specifically designed for female body, it works well for woman of all fitness level and age.
Who created this program?
Nate Miyaki — he grew up as the chubby kid of the family. He took up sports and body building to try to improve his appearance. However, he still had trouble getting rid of the chubby sections of his frame. The problem was that he was following all of the conventional advice. He was working out religiously and even tried doing the famous low carbohydrate diet. He also fell to various diet scams.
Nonetheless, he did not get the results he was looking for, and what was even worse was that his sleep and sex life suffered as a result of his efforts. Later he would discover the secret to weight loss, which he is sharing with the world in the Feast Your Fat Away Diet.
Well it’s only a few days from thanksgiving and then it’s on to Christmas, and I’m sure there will be some year end parties, and other get togethers that involve a lot of eating and drinking.
The next 4-6 weeks are the WORST for fat gain, so you better do whatever you can to avoid gaining fat while still enjoying the holiday season.
