The Jerusalem Diet: The "One Day" Approach to Reach Your Ideal Weight--And Stay Thereby Ted Haggard
Synopses & Reviews
The Jerusalem Diet is a remarkably simple and flexible plan that will transform your perspective on food, diets, and health. Youll rediscover how to relax and enjoy life, moving steadily toward your ideal weight while still taking pleasure in the foods you love.
SIMPLE: No expensive foods, supplements, or exercise equipment required. All you need is a good digital scale, a calendar, some basic food items available at any grocery store, and a willingness to “lighten up”-physically, spiritually, and emotionally.
GUILT-FREE: This easy-to-follow plan frees you to stop counting calories, agonizing over menu choices, and pursuing extreme exercise programs. Instead, youll learn how to lose weight while still eating the foods you love and enjoying life to the fullest.
LIFE-CHANGING: The Jerusalem Diet reenergizes not only your body but also your outlook on life. As you move toward your ideal weight-one day at a time, one pound at a time-you will feel better, look better, and live better.
Developed by a busy pastor who loves food and admits to a lack of self-control when it comes to eating, The Jerusalem Diet is designed to work for anyone who can manage to stay on a diet for just 24 hours. If you want to shed pounds and keep them off-without starvation, deprivation, or frustration-this is the plan youve been waiting for.
"Haggard, pastor of the huge New Life Church in Colorado Springs, proposes a diet that was born in, yes, Jerusalem. Haggard was there in 1998 when he realized he'd gained too much weight to comfortably fit in his clothes. He decided that for one day, he would eat only fruits, veggies and nuts. Voila! He felt better and looked better in his clothes. Gradually, one day at a time (and about one pound a week), he returned to his target weight. Now, whenever he gains a pound or two, he restricts his diet for a day and exercises for an hour; within 24 hours, he's usually returned to his target. In fact, he finds that the routine of weighing himself every day serves as a good deterrent to overeating. Haggard's not promoting a quick fix. He encourages readers to slowly change their lives-to eat right, exercise more and get enough sleep. Jerusalem Dieters should also strive to break addictions to cigarettes, caffeine and sugar: 'Don't let any substance determine how you live your day.' Haggard's wife Gayle wrote Chapter 12, 'Women and the Jerusalem Diet,' urging women to accept their bodies and be gentle with themselves-get a massage, spend time outside, walk. Though gimmicky, the Jerusalem Diet is sensible enough and helps readers form strategies for weight maintenance as well as weight loss. Still, as Haggard himself notes, he's not a doctor, so this plan should be adopted with some caution, and, ideally, in consultation with a physician or nutritionist."
