Six Week Body Makeover – Body Type D

The 6 Week Body Makeover meal plan is divided up into five different body types. This article will focus on the body type “D” as the meal plan is quite unique for this body. D people are allowed to eat more red meat. The other body types are only allowed to eat lean proteins and seafood. The reason why D bodies can eat beef is because red meat actually helps build muscle for this specific body type.

People who are classified as “D” body types have very sluggish metabolism and a lack of lean muscle. This causes a double whammy when it comes to fat loss. Muscle is what burns fat and the more lean muscle that you have, the more calories you’ll burn throughout the day. This is similar to the Atkin’s approach, however, this meal plan is less restrictive when it comes to what type of carbohydrates you can consume. First off, if you are a D, you shouldn’t eat sweet fruits, sugar and white breads. Complex carbohydrates are good for these body types (in moderation). Some complex carbohydrates that are included within the meal plan are potatoes, squash and low sugar fruits like grapefruit.

A sample dinner meal on the Michael Thurmond diet for a Body Type D is, grilled New York steak, garlic roasted potatoes and a green salad. A sample breakfast would be 4 oz. egg whites & 1 cup of oatmeal or steak & egg whites. The eggs can be scrambled with diced tomatoes and basil. You can use lean sirloin steak and add Maui grilled onions for flavor.
