Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

THE POUND A DAY DIET is an accelerated program designed to help dieters lose up to five pounds every five days-- without frustrating plateaus-- while enjoying all their favorite foods. It rewrites every carb/fat/calorie rule in the book! This delicious, easy-to-use, plan is specifically formulated as a Mediterranean-style diet that is carb and calorie corrected to turbocharge metabolism and weight loss. Complete with menus for 28 days (four five-day plans and four weekend plans), dieters first follow the five-day plan, switch over to the weekend plan, return to the five-day plan for the second week, and continue with the weekend plan-alternating like this right down to their goal weight. To help readers, Rocco has created 50 all-new lightning-quick 5 ingredient recipes, as well as ready-made suggestions for those who simply cannot find the time to cook; a primer on healthy and fast cooking techniques; calorie-calibrated menus and shopping lists; and a lifestyle plan for maintaining a lean, healthy body for life.

Review:

"Celebrity chef DiSpirito (Now Eat This!) offers a rapid weight-loss regimen designed to re-educate palates and perspectives about dropping pounds quickly and keeping them off. Based on the most current nutrition research, this approach dispels the belief that a slow, steady loss is the best way to lose weight and avoid regaining. There are three keys to his plan: 1) veggies are a secret weapon; 2) lean protein 'rocks your body'; and 3) 'nutritional balance is paramount.' Eating 'calorie-corrected' and 'carb-corrected' foods revs up metabolism, and adopting a Mediterranean diet helps maintain it, so that this method of eating becomes a way of life. Phase 1 of the plan lasts four weeks: three meals and two snacks for a total of 850 calories for each of five days, followed by two days of three meals and two snacks for1200 calories per day, then repeated for three more weeks. Phase 2, maintenance, begins when a goal weight is achieved; calories increase but guidelines remain. Sixty new healthy recipes, with low-calorie, low-carb, high-fiber, lean protein 'Diet Booster' foods, plus a 28-day meal plan, and a detailed, week-by-week shopping list, along with the author's infectious encouragement, guide dieters in cooking and enjoying filling, delicious meals — sure to be a hit with his fans."
