In the previous article, we talked about the Ignite Phase. It was all about cleansing and training the body to take in more effective substitutes. This is done in order to prepare for the next phase, the Launch Phase. Make sure to read our Ignite article before you proceed so that you don't miss out on the concepts mentioned there.
Step 1: IGNITE PHASE
Learn about Cinderella Solution's first step towards a healthy weight loss diet. Understand how it works, as well as how insulin, cortisol, and estrogen hormones influence your body's metabolism.
The Launch Phase is where the body shows its real potential. Like in the Olympic Games example of the Ignite Phase article, the body leaps into action during the final stretch, leading to a triumphant win. All those hours of practice have finally paid off!
During the initial 14-day Ignite Phase, the body was trained to get rid of food that causes harm, and then take in more of those that help in boosting the metabolic process. This next phase, which also lasts 14 days, takes advantage of the body's newly cleansed environment.
It's time to take it to the next level. The goals of the Launch Phase are explained below:
1. Optimize Thyroid Hormone Production
The thyroid gland is part of the endocrine system and is located in the neck area. Along with the adrenal glands, the system as a whole releases hormones that control metabolism. These hormones also manage our heart rate, breathing, muscle strength, temperature, and more.
There are two hormones produced by the thyroid gland - triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4). These hormones are created with the help of iodine. A balance between T3 and T4 is important because too much or too little can result in one or more of the following conditions:
How does the Launch Phase optimize thyroid hormone production? With well-primed adrenal glands from the Ignite Phase, the body can now take in more high carb foods. These foods are processed, and eventually released into the bloodstream, primarily by the thyroid gland. Production and delivery are efficient, thanks to the training from the previous phase.
2. Reduce Inflammation and Acidity
The Cinderella Solution diet program is not immune to side effects. Acidity is one of those. Acidity can be caused by skipping meals or too much consumption of certain beverages, such as coffee. The body gradually adjusts to this, but it goes through an adjustment period before that.
The Launch Phase makes use of protein-rich food items to reduce inflammation and acidity. It uses quality proteins, which Cinderella Solution dubs as Prime Proteins, in order to distinguish the quality of the calorie content within each protein source. Eating the right ones will accelerate cell repair and shape up the muscles.
3. Increase Fat-Burning Hormones: Testosterone and Human Growth Hormone
Like insulin and the thyroid hormones, testosterone and human growth hormone (HGH) are also crucial in weight loss because of their fat-burning abilities.
Testosterone manages fat production. It also helps in conditioning our hair, voice, muscles, and bones. The Launch Phase, coupled with workout routines will raise the intensity of fat loss by increasing testosterone levels. More importantly, the Launch Phase also helps in improving sleep. Deep sleep boosts testosterone levels.
HGH, on the other hand, induces lipolysis, a process that breaks down fat instead of sugar as a source of energy. HGH production is increased by consuming a lot of Power Carbs. This will result in enhanced fat-burning all throughout the day.
4. Set Leptin to Optimal Levels
Leptin comes from fat cells. It is a hormone that controls hunger. It keeps track of the body's stored fat and reports it to the brain. If leptin levels are low, then you will experience hunger. Otherwise, you'll feel full.
The Launch Phase uses Flavor Pairs in order to optimize leptin levels. For this reason, hunger is prevented while fat loss continues to gain momentum.

How Does the Launch Phase Work?
The Launch Phase works by enhancing metabolism through the addition of protein-rich and high-carb foods. This 14-day phase will even be more effective if paired with physical exercises.
The Ignite Phase focused on low-carb food combinations that were taken during breakfast and dinner. This time, the emphasis is on high-carb and high protein meals. An extra meal time is also added to make sure that hunger is subdued.
Meal Time - Macronutrients
As mentioned in the Ignite Phase article, these phases can be Re-Ignited and Re-Launched if the desired results were not reached. It can be done for the third, fourth, or fifth time as long as the two 14-day phases are followed in the exact order - Ignite, then Launch.
Royal Fats? Prime Proteins? Angel Carbs? Power Carbs?
What are these? Chapter 4 of the Cinderella Solution Manual explains in detail what they are, their serving sizes, and how they work hand-in-hand with the two 14-day phases of the program - the Ignite Phase and the Launch Phase.
