"The Every-Other-Day Diet is the perfect diet for me."

That's the satisfied declaration of a dieter who lost 41 pounds on the Every-Other-Day Diet. (And kept it off!) You too can expect dramatic results with this revolutionary approach to weight loss that is incredibly simple, easy, and effective. Created by Dr. Krista Varady, an associate professor of nutrition at the University of Illinois, the Every-Other-Day Diet will change the way you think of dieting forever. Among its many benefits:

It's science-tested, science-proven.Dr. Varady has conducted many scientific studies on the Every-Other-Day Diet, involving hundreds of people, with consistently positive results published in top medical journals such as the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition and Obesity. Unlike most other diets, the Every-Other-Day Diet is proven to work.

It's remarkably simple-and effective.On Diet Day, you limit calories. On Feast Day, you eat anything you want and as much as you want. You alternate Diet Day and Feast Day. And you lose weight, steadily and reliably.

There's no constant deprivation.The Every-Other-Day Diet doesn't involve day after day of dietary deprivation--because you can still indulge every-other day.

It's easy to keep the weight off.With other diets, you lose weight only to regain it, the frustrating fate of most dieters. But The Every-Other-Day Diet includes the Every-Other-Day Success Plan--an approach to weight maintenance proven to work in a study sponsored by the National Institutes of Health.

This book offers all of the research, strategies, tips, and tools you need to believe in the Every-Other-Day Diet and easily implement it in your life. It also includes more than 80 quick and delicious recipes for Diet Day, as well as a list of tasty prepared foods that make meals as easy as 1-2-3.

The Every-Other-Day Diet is perfect for anyone who wants to shed pounds and feel great, without hunger and defeat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Every Other Day Diet As an 'experienced dieter' I have decades of unsuccessful or temporarily successful diets behind me. This book actually offers what I believe is a lifelong plan that is doable as well as sustainable over the long term. The research is solid, the method is simple and it isn't necessary to forgo the joy of eating at social events. Bon appetite!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Finally, a diet I can live with I like how simple the diet is, and how much research has been done to support it. The best part is that unlike other diet plans, on this diet, you won't reset your metabolism to a lower level. Hopefully that will help me keep the weight off.
