Yay Food – A Unique Concept for “Releasing” Pounds
There are so many diets to choose from, how do we know what to chose? Low fat, low carbs, low calories, Jennie Craig, Weight Watchers, Atkins – the list is endless. Just in America alone, the diet industry is a billion dollar business with half the population on one diet or another at any given time.
The problem I’ve always had with most diets is that they work great for a couple of weeks and then they slow down or stop working altogether. This was always explained by “Oh, you’ve just reached a plateau.” That really never made any sense to me because I wasn’t doing anything different.
I finally found out that the reason I “hit a plateau” was because my body’s metabolism slowed down to fit the particular diet I was on at the time and went into “starvation” mode. This may have been useful for our caveman ancestors, but it doesn’t help when we want to lose weight!
The Yay Food plan has a work-around for this problem. It’s called “calorie cycling” and hides the fact you are dieting from your body. In essence, you rotate the kinds of foods you eat and the calorie count of these meals. For example, you may eat a certain level of calories on Tuesday. On Wednesday, you may eat 10% more calories, and on Thursday, 30% fewer calories. Your body doesn’t have a clue that you are “dieting” and continues to keep your metabolism high, allowing you to burn more calories.
Rachel Rofe had tried numerous diets and failed, just like most of us. For most of her life she was considered fat. In fourth grade, she weighed 120 pounds and by the seventh grade, she weighed in at a whopping 250 pounds! After discovering and use the calorie cycling technique, she lost 100 pounds and decided to share her discovery with the rest of us.
Claiming that low fat, low carb, low calorie diets don’t work, she developed the Yay Food plan. In fact, she doesn’t call it “losing” pounds, she calls it “releasing” pounds. She also claims that you can eat any food you want as long as you stay within the calorie count of the particular meal you are eating.

On the flip side, a lot of the comments I saw on their forum were from people who noted the lack of active support and interaction from the experts on the forum. They were also having trouble contacting someone who could answer their questions about how to cancel their accounts. However I found the cancellation directions quite easy, so in case you don’t like the diet after the first month, you can cancel your membership easily without much headache!
To conclude, Yay Food is a simple diet to follow, whether you want to lose a few pounds or a lot of pounds. And it helps keep those pounds off because it’s really a lifestyle change in the way you eat, not just a crash “diet.”
