Personalised meal plan is necessary
Anyone who has ever struggled with obesity and failed attempts at weight loss knows that many diets which worked for others didn’t work for them, and vice versa. This can happen even if the individual adheres to the programme, because no two bodies are alike. We all come with some genetic “baggage” as well as “blessings”, and we all live unique lifestyles. There is a spectrum of factors that affect the outcome of a diet:
- Gender and age
- Starting weight & the desired weight loss
- The individual’s build
- Health conditions
- Amount of daily physical activity
- Sleep and work patterns
Adaptations and combinations: the best route to overcoming obesity and yoyo dieting
Designing a successful personalised meal plan requires taking into account individual-specific factors, but that’s only the beginning. It takes healthcare and nutritional professional(s) to understand the interaction of those factors with respect to dieting. Professionals also possess the knowledge and experience of how different weight loss programmes can be combined to achieve the desired effect while improving overall health.
Even though One Body weight loss holidays offer you three defined programmes – Low-Carb High-Fat, Slow-Carb High-Fat and the Paleo diets – you will see that they have a lot in common with each other. This makes it possible to combine their principles so that the results are amplified through a realistic plan and a healthy, long-term weight loss is achieved.

The Paleo programme mimics the meal plan from Old Stone Age
The Paleo diet got its name from the Paleolithic period – the Old Stone Age, in other words. That was a time of hunter-gatherers, before agriculture revolutionized our existence around 10,000 years ago.
Conforming to the foods available to our prehistoric ancestors, the Paleo programme removes all grains and legumes from the meal plan, as well as dairy. The focus is on vegetables and fruits, preferably with a low glycemic index, i.e. those which do not cause spikes in blood sugar and insulin levels. This is something that Low-Carb High-Fat and Slow-Carb High-Fat programmes also point out as vital for health and efficient weight loss.
Paleo is all about quality
In its purest form, Paleo includes much more than a diet against obesity, heart disease and other health conditions. Paleo emphasizes the importance of regular, 8-hour sleep and encourages light to moderate exercise, preferably short and vigorous. Above all, Paleo gives priority to highest quality foods – locally sourced and organically grown or wild-caught (as in the case of game meat and seafood).

Slow-Carb High-Fat programme aims to boost your motivation
The principle of slow-carb high-fat programme is not revolutionary, but it was made into a structured meal plan by Tim Ferriss, an American entrepreneur, author and an overall self-improvement master (in the words of one magazine). In order to design the diet, he interviewed around 200 experts from the field of nutrition and dieting.
What is the SCHF meal plan like?
The program emphasizes slow carbs with a low glycemic index (55 and lower). Unlike Low-Carb High-Fat diet, SCHF allows some grains and most legumes, which keeps hunger away and provides added energy. Slow carbs don’t cause spikes in blood sugar, which relieves hunger and the need for insulin. Similarly to Low-Carb High-Fat diet, this weight loss programme can help diabetics and those with insulin resistance.
The meal plan is based on 5 rules:
- Avoid white carbs (all bread, pasta, rice, etc.) except after a resistance-training workout.
- Eat the same meals over and over again.
- Don’t drink calories (including milk, like in Paleo diet) except for red wine, 2 glasses a day allowed.
- Don’t eat fruit six days a week.
- Take one day off per week, when you can eat whatever you want.
SCHF diet defeats obesity with sustainability
Ferriss, the founder of the diet, emphasizes that the results are fast and measurable, which sustains motivation and self-discipline. The weekly cheat day allows the individual to reduce dieting stress and also to remind them of their weight loss goals.
Another benefit of the Slow-Carb High-Fat diet is that it allows for a lot of personalisation. After reaching their desired weight, you can experiment and introduce more carbs to your diet if it doesn’t make you gain weight.

Low-Carb High-Fat programme is grounded in medical research
Low-Carbohydrate High-Fat diet is also known as Atkins diet. It was first promoted in 1972 by Dr Robert C. Atkins, a physician.
LCHF has been thoroughly studied. More than 20 studies researching low-carb diets have been conducted on humans. The conclusions are that low-carb high-fat diets:
- Are very effective in achieving weight loss and fighting obesity
- Produce better and faster weight loss results than low-fat diets
- Can lead to a lower risk of heart disease
- Can help individuals with insulin resistance and diabetics control their blood sugar and insulin levels
- Prevent the feeling of constant hunger by controlling blood sugar levels (similarly to Slow-Carb High-Fat programme)
Conquer obesity, prevent heart disease and manage diabetes with the Low-Carb High-Fat meal plan
LCHF meal plans favour vegetables, fruit, dairy products and meat over refined food, sugar, grains and most legumes. This triggers metabolic processes that turn your body into a fat-burning machine. LCHF is a powerful strategy when fighting obesity, because it causes our bodies to burn both the fat under our skin and the one around our internal organs, which is at the root of many health issues.
Major health improvements which are possible when you LCHF programme are:
- Increased levels of the good HDL cholesterol
- Reduced levels of the bad LDL cholesterol and triglycerides
- Significantly reduced and stabilized blood sugar and insulin levels
