the success I ve had Admittedly, the first week required some resolve but after that I found my body adjusted to the every other day schedule I found I had lots of energy on fasting days, which was a surprise Another surprise was not waking up and over consuming rampantly on feast days I ve read some disparaging comments about this diet that do not respect either the research findings or the personal stories of successful adherents My guess is that this diet will eventually become the treatment of choice for weight loss I was trying to find a way to lose some weight and I was really having a hard time finding a diet I could stick with Well I have found it So when I ordered this book I started on chapter 2 because I wanted to start the diet right away I then proceeded to read chapter 3 about the feast day But then I went back to chapter 1 and found it to be very interesting all the research and results they have seen So I really do recommend reading the entire book as it s very good I am going to try a cou I was trying to find a way to lose some weight and I was really having a hard time finding a diet I could stick with Well I have found it So when I ordered this book

the research and results they have seen So I really do recommend reading the entire book as it s very good I am going to try a couple of recipes in the book this week So about how I m doing on the every other day diet So at the beginning of August 2016 I weighted 159 lbs and today Sept 6,2016 I m at 146 lbs even went on a week long vacation and still stuck with this diet very easily So I am very pleased And I find this diet so easy as I know on diet day I only have to hold out till tomorrow to eat what every I want I have notice that I m not as hungry as I was before and I have cut out all snacking between meals which was a huge problem for me I am truly going to stay on this diet for the long term as in chapter 7 it goes into how to maintain your weight once you take it off UPDATE It s now Dec 3, 2017 and I am at 131 lb still been doing great on this diet.UPDATE 2 it s March 5th 2017 and I m now 122 still doing good and soon will reach my goal and go to the maintain phase.UPDATE ABOUT WHAT I EAT ON DIET DAY April 17th,2017 So I have found the suggestion in the book of eating a 400 calorie meal and then a 100 calorie snack which I tried to do when starting this diet did not work for me I really do enjoy eating the actual act of eating So what I have been doing is breaking it down into smaller meals I do skip breakfast as she suggests and I don t eat anything until I m actually hungry I have water and low calorie 5 cal per 8oz or less drinks only, as it is true sometimes I was dehydrated not actually hungry That is one thing this diet has given me a true sense of when I m actually hungry as before I would eat out of routine and boredom So when I do feel hungry usually this is somewhere between 11am and 3pm depending how busy I am If I am really focused on something it tends to keep my mind of eating Then I will either have low or no sugar oatmeal 100 to 120 cal per packet with a 1 4 of a cup of blue berries 21 calories or 1 cup of cereal special K with red berries with 1 4 cup of milk 148 calories Then this will hold me over for 3 to 4 hours Then I sometimes will just eat a old Wisconsin turkey sausage snack stick 45 cal with 4g of protein then between 4pm and 7pm I have my dinner which is either a can of lite soup I choose ones that our between 70 to 110 per serving and the can is 2 servings so eating the entire can is 140 to 220 calories these soups can be a hit or a miss taste wise so try a lot of different ones and find the ones you like or I eat 2 packets of oatmeal with 1 4 cup blueberries 221 calories or a michelina s frozen entree my favorite is Lasagna with meat sauce 240 cal So my total calorie count for the day is now between 306 to 433 calories depending on the foods I choose that day I then add about 5 to 15 calories for my low calorie drinks which brings me to 311 to 448 calories Now depending on my calorie count I will add another snack around 7pm or 8pm either another turkey sausage stick 45cal or a weight watchers ice cream bar 90 cal yes I eat ice cream on my diet day YAY or a no sugar added frozen fruit bar 35 cal So doing my diet day with my foodspread out I don t feel starved and I continue to tell myself if I get hungry for something that has too many calories on diet day You can have that tomorrow This diet plan sounds both crazy and oddly sensible To lose an average of twelve pounds per month, you alternate daily between diet and feast days Diet days are 500 calories only one 400 calorie meal and one 100 calorie snack Feast days are whatever you want to eat, no restrictions Maintenance plan is Monday, Wednesday, Friday 1,000 calories a day two 400 calorie meals plus two 100 calorie snacks The other four days are whatever you want to eat UIC nutrition researcher Krista Varady ba This diet plan sounds both crazy and oddly sensible To lose an average of twelve pounds per month, you alternate daily between diet and feast days Diet days are 500 calories only one 400

calorie snacks The other four days are whatever you want to eat UIC nutrition researcher Krista Varady bases her weight loss claims for this dietary pattern on her multiple research projects demonstrating safety, significant weight loss success, and improvement of various metabolic markers blood sugar, blood pressure, cholesterol She tried different fasting amounts zero calories made people crazy I bet and higher amounts didn t have the same weight loss effect 500 calories, when alternated with days of unlimited consumption, was proven safe She does state that some study participants reported having issues with hunger on diet days but that diet day hunger pangs passed after the first two weeks Plus it s easier to power through when you know the next day you can eat whatever.Dr Varady herself was surprised to discover that people didn t really pig out on feast days 500 calories is about 25% of appropriate daily calories On feast days, she predicted consumption of 150% of appropriate daily calories in reality, it waslike 125% She speculates that the diet day fasting reset what people felt they needed to eat Another advantage of the diet, she states, is the high rate of fat loss and the low rate of muscle loss, a big metabolic bonus.Besides solving the issue of constant caloric restriction, it sounds like something I could recommend to those who state they ve truly cut back and the weight just won t come off Based on her research, I m guessing this plan shakes up metabolism Someone who is already restricting probably would have an easy time with the 500 calorie diet days and would be frustrated enough to try something new.Not only is this plan easy to understand, the book includes very easy to prepare 400 calorie lunch and dinner options plus easy snack suggestions She also includes frozen and takeout entr e ideas if you don t feel like preparing your own food.I m not sure how this would work with someone with type 2 diabetes, the population I primarily treat In addition to medication issues, I d be curious what happens to blood sugar levels on the eat whatever you want days Dr Varady does express caution using this diet with diabetes, especially type 1, and some other health issues Testing the efficacy and safety of this diet in those with type 2 diabetes would make a great future research project.Other questions I have include the value of actual dietary nutritional content long term and impact on disordered eating Yes, metabolic markers improve regardless of feast day meal content but that s likely due to the weight loss What about overall long term health if someone s feast day is always fried chicken, cheese grits, and apple pie And what does it do to your relationship with food if you re always tracking whether it s your 1,000 calorie day or your all you can eat day Bottom line, a diet worth considering if you want to lose some weight and don t have a chronic condition treated with medication tied to dietary patterns Yes, I have some questions but I love a researcher who is willing to test and challenge prevailing weight loss practices We all know that the way to lose weight is to eat less andhealthily and exerciseYet I m always interested in reading the different diet books to see what their approach is.This one is simple you eat 500 calories on Diet Day of anything you want and then as much as you want of anything you want the next day Feast Day and keep alternating days hence the name every other day You can have booze but keep in mind that on Diet Day, depending on what you drink, you may no We all know that the way to lose weight is to eat less andhealthily and exerciseYet I m always interested in reading the different diet books to see what their approach is.This one is simple you eat 500 calories on Diet Day of anything you want and then as much as you want of anything you want the next day Feast Day and keep alternating days hence the name every other day You can have booze but keep in mind that on Diet Day, depending on what you drink, you may not have many calories left for food.In theory, it makes sense to me You are eating about 25% of your usual calories on Diet Day Say on Feast Day you eat what you usually eat which equals 100% of your usual calories So between the two days you are eating 125% of your calories rather than 200% Then you do it again the next two days and so on Even if you overate on Feast Day to 125%, you are still only eating 150% of your calories rather than 200% between the two days.On Diet Day, you can have whatever you want as long as you don t go over your 500 calories The author suggests you skip breakfast and have a 400 calorie lunch or supper and a 100 calorie snack there are lots of recipes and suggestions included in the book Drink lots of water and tea coffee, chew gum and exercise in the morning.To back up this theory, she includes her scientific data and true stories of people it s worked for There is also a maintenance program along with advice on how when to exercise and keep your motivation going.I think Diet Days would be tough I don t do hunger well I ve had to fast and it wasn t fun But as the author reminds us, basically you are sucking it up for a day and you can have whatever you want the next You aren t depriving yourself of anything because you know you can always have it tomorrow.Blog review post
