What is 'The 100'?
"It's all about the insulin," Cruise told the media outlet. "Everyone thinks weight loss is all about eat less, exercise more ... A calorie is a calorie, and as much as I love equality, I'm not abiding equality when it comes to calories. Not all calories are the same."
The core concept of "The 100" is that dieters are allowed to eat 100 of what Cruise called "sugar calories" each day. You can count sugar calories by looking at the carbs on a nutrition label and multiplying it by four. This means that certain healthy foods, would be off limits. Consider the apple, which has 20 carbs, and thus 80 calories. One serving of brown rice would actually put dieters over the daily limit.
While "The 100" may seem like the perfect solution to some, it's important to remember that even the best diet plans do not work for everyone. If you have serious health problems like heart disease, diabetes or a thyroid disorder, these fad diets might cause you more harm than good. Also, nothing replaces a healthy lifestyle with balanced nutrition and exercise. Your primary care doctor can also help you find a nutritionist or let you know if this diet would work for you.
If you've managed to lose a significant amount of weight and notice loose skin or sagging areas on your body, a larger procedure like a lower body lift, tummy tuck or even post-bariatric surgery might be appropriate. The best idea would be to do some research online and then consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon.
