Chris Powell's Carb Cycling Diet Plan

I watched a Dr. Oz segment on another diet plan developed by Chris Powell from ABC’s ‘Extreme Makeover’ Weight Loss Edition'. This is an interesting plan that utilizes carb cycling, similar to the 17 Day Diet's second cycle.  Here is an article that outlines Powell's plan and a video of the Dr. Oz show where Powell recommends an easy and effective move he calls the "burpee".

I'm going to consider some of his concepts too, and incorporate twenty "burpees" to my daily exercise routine.  I just did twenty and whoa!....they are amazingly challenging!
