Every diet is going to be challenging but most of them work. If you follow most diets you will lose weight but at what cost.
Most of them are not healthy and most are not sustainable. Once you get off of the Scroll down to see my progress after one week on The Doctor's Diet! Once you get off of the diet you start to put back on all of the weight and that is the cycle most people have to deal with. This diet stops that cycle. The diet is developed by a doctor and is based on real science. The diet is broken into 3 phases.
The first phase last 2 weeks. It is called The Stat Plan. It is developed to make you lose a lot of weight fast and break your addiction from sugar. It basically cuts out a lot of carbs but not all carbs. This is not a carb free diet. They do replace the unhealthy carbs with healthy carbs that come from natural foods.
This is how we should be eating anyway so I feel confident that the premise for this diet is medically sound. You stay on the Stat Plan phase of the diet for 2 weeks. After the initial 2 weeks you start the second phase of the diet called Restore. You are able to have a few more foods that were previously forbidden including an additional serving of grains. You are also told during this entire diet that you should be including at least 30 minutes of exercise per day.
After working this phase of the plan for 2 weeks you have a choice to make. Either you have more weight to lose and need to go back on the Stat Plan for an additional 2 weeks and start the cycle over or you have reached your goal weight and you can move onto the Maintain phase of the diet.
This third phase of the diet is what sets this diet apart from other diets I've tried. This phase of the diet is how you will need to eat for the rest of your life to ensure your weight stays off. This is a healthy, science based balanced diet.
I have seen several reviews complaining about this book and rating it low, siting the fact that you have to exercise and you lose "freedom" to eat what you want. I say these reviews are ridiculous! This diet was written by a medical professional and there is no magic pill.
Some people think once you've read the book all of the weight falls off with no other effort.
Doctor’s Diet Basics
That is not the case. This book tells you what you NEED to do to get the weight off, keep it off, and restore your health, as well as prevent disease. Yes I criticized others for rating this book unfairly so I feel that it's necessary for me to hold myself to the same standard.
I am going to start this diet and do the first two phases. I will then come back in approximately a month and let you know how this diet works, how I felt on the diet, and I will give my final rating for the book. Obviously if the diet works according to what is written I will keep the 5 star rating.
I will try to follow the diet exactly as written. Look for the final review on this book around the second week in May So here's my update after 1 week on Dr. Travis' Stat Plan This week has not been as tough as I thought it would be. Travis says if you break you addiction to sugar you will not want to eat as much and you won't crave more sugar. I am excited to say what he says is true! I am a sugar-holic!

Travis says if you break you addiction to sugar you will not want to eat as much and you won't crave more sugar. I am excited to say what he says is true! I am a sugar-holic! My favorite food is bread and potatoes and I have a health condition called panhypopituitarism. This causes me to have to take steroids daily which make you hungry and thirsty as hell and thyroid meds for low thyroid.
This makes it extra hard for me to lose weight. It also causes me to fatigue easily so exercise is a tiny bit harder. I'm not telling you this so you can throw me a pity party but I am telling you this so you can understand how well this diet works. I excercised minimally. I know lazy right? Ok so this week in only 7 days I lost 8 pounds!!!! That's right over a pound a day!!! If I had exercised I'm sure I would have done better but I am striving to improve each week following this plan and it is very doable.
I am a mom of 2 kids, my husband is gone a lot, and I babysit kids all day, run them around to extra activities and am always busy. If I can do it, then you can too. IMO this book is 5 stars and worth every star! My husband went on this plan with me and he is a severe diabetic. He takes 4 shots of insulin per day ranging from units of insulin per shot. His blood sugar still ranges in the range. After a couple of days on this diet his blood sugar went to and his insulin usage is down to 2 shots per day of units per shot.
Diabetics run get this book NOW! This very well can and will save your life if you are able to stick with it. Because diabetes is so close to my my heart I am adding his update in this review as well. I think it's important for those out there that are living with diabetes and struggling to control it. In the first week he lost 7 pounds and did not follow the plan as exactly as I did. He had to have an extra snack between meals that I did not have but it was necessary to control his blood sugar.
I have 1 more week left on the stat plan and then it's time to move on to the restore phase. I will update next week and let you guys know the progress but my final rating will be 5 stars because even if someone needs to lose weight fast for a wedding or vacation I think 8 pounds in a week is more then enough.
Of course don't expect that kind of weight loss every week. Watch for my new update next week!! After 2 weeks on the Stat Plan I have lost a total of 11 pounds and my husband has lost I hope I don't gain too much weight but I am going to eat a holiday meal tomorrow.
Once you start the Restore phase of the diet you continue it for 14 days. I will let you know how much I lose on that phase of the diet which I assume is not going to be as drastic as the stat plan. Everyone who is having trouble dieting or if you don't know what to eat on a diet then definitely download this book. A lot of things that I thought were healthy really are not and I only learned that from this book. It's definitely worth every penny! I do recommend downloading a hard back copy because I have both and the site copy is very hard to look back through to find recipes and food list.
The hard back copy has little sticky notes marking the areas I need to refer back too and it's much more convenient. More reviews and no fluff on the blog http: Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Want to Read saving….

Stork that presents very scary but necessary to know facts about obesity, then addresses the problem with a diet plan, motivations, and recipes. He breaks the plan down by Stat starting to lose weight now and then Restore and Maintain for long term goal achievement.
The plan isn't about deprivation; rather, it's about understanding what you are eating and how it More reviews and no fluff on the blog http: The plan isn't about deprivation; rather, it's about understanding what you are eating and how it will affect your health. The book starts by discussing the problems with obesity: He then discusses the Stat plan and how to get started on the diet.
In depth discussions of protein, carbs, sugar, fat, veggies, fruit, nuts, legums, and yogurt help dieters understand the benefits of each of those types of foods. Then the book transitions into the Restore plan and how the better eating will affect your life - from a stronger heart, changes in blood sugar, better sleep, happier moods, lower risk of cancer and even a better family life.
Finally, the Maintain section sets the diet up for a lifetime of good health and happy eating. There are several recipes in the back but the bulk of the diet is understanding the various foods and putting together combinations that make the most sense for weight loss and energy.
It's not about a set menu or eating a set item. The diet is very open ended - Dr. Stork has given you all the knowledge you need in the book to make the right choices when eating. I found the text to be very motivating. There is so much more to weight loss than just beauty - it's really about living longer and better and he really helps explain how each choice makes a very specific difference health wise.
The book is easy to follow but doesn't pander to the reader and really is health reward based. The plan is easy to follow and the weight comes off at a good pace - consistent but not too fast.
In all, I really appreciate the book and find myself much more motivated to lose the extra pounds. Received as an ARC from the publisher. Jun 13, Lisa Harmonybites rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Those interest in diet, health, and nutritionb. I didn't look up this book because I need to lose weight. I have only a few left to lose to reach the "ideal weight" according to my medical chart and I'm in no hurry. But I am reading on what a healthy diet is--because that's what's important to me, and because soon I have to think about not losing, but maintaining--which as I think everyone knows is the hard part.
A New York Times article stated "more than 90 percent of people who lose a lot of weight gain it back. This isn't for me a keeper, a must-download I'll refer to again and again. But it's eminently sensible--and that's rare enough in diet books--and structured in such a way, with enough choices, a person following the book may actually learn a healthy way to eat--not just simply follow a rigid meal plan.
If you want to lose weight in a healthy way--you could do far, far worse than this book. Having read on diet recently the different takes truly are crazy making. There are the Vegans and their ilk telling you meat and dairy and eggs are poison. Then there are the Paleo people telling you grains and legumes and soy--even fruit--are poison; oh, and the "Nighshade" veggies such as tomatoes and peppers eggplants are bad, and wrong.
And both sides argue for their regimens with religious fervor. What I like about Stork is that he promises to tell you when the science is conflicted or uncertain--such as the changing picture on soy and saturated fat--and I find that beyond refreshing.
It makes him as far as I'm concerned far more trustworthy than all those diet gurus insisting you must follow their rules and eliminate a wide swathe of foods humans have eaten for millenia or it's your fault if you get cancer, heart disease or diabetes.
Very easy to understand I have read the entire book. I have not started using this eating plan but I am really forward to starting. Very easy to follow. My boyfriend and I have been on it for 4 weeks and so far I lost 10 pounds and my BF lost 13 pound. But most importantly we feel great! This is not a temporary fix. This is a life change! View 1 comment. Jan 20, Wil rated it it was ok Shelves: And you probably love the idea of fast results.
Hey, who wouldn't? The target audience of this book is people wanting to lose weight, as described on the cover. I think that this book might work great for some people.
It offers advice based on the most widely accepted nutrition research in the medical field and Dr. Stork is very positiv "You're following The Doctor's Diet because you want results, right?
Stork is very positive and encouraging. I wasn't reading this book to lose weight, I was mainly trying to understand what doctors know about nutrition. For people looking to lose weight, if this book interests you, read this book and see if it works! As an avid scientist searching for the truth, I was both encouraged and disheartened by the perspective on health that this book was based on.
Here are some things that bothered me the most: Stork puts whole grains on a pedestal. But whole grains aren't always good for you. If you are looking to lose weight, eating whole-wheat bread isn't any better for you than white bread.
Though whole grain bread might have more nutrients, it spikes blood sugar faster than white bread, worsening sugar addictions. Stork bashes LDL cholesterol - This is a molecule that our body naturally makes. It has a vital purpose in our body, so we shouldn't be calling it "bad".
All doctors seem to do this and it doesn't make sense to me. If we didn't have LDL, we wouldn't have a brain. What is actually bad is oxidized LDL, which can be produced in many ways, like blood sugar spikes. LDL levels are a poor predictor of heart disease, as recent research is now showing us. This was probably one of the most disturbing things.
Stork said that recent research shows that whole-milk is a healthier option than skim milk. I've seen the research articles and I couldn't agree more. But then he admits that he opts for skim milk and that we should too.
Even for people wanting to lose weight, this doesn't make sense.
Research shows that people who opt for whole milk actually have a healthier weight. Here is one article published in one of the most prestigious journals: There were a few things that Dr. Stork said that were encouraging: This is awesome. Many doctors don't bother distinguishing the health differences between different types of meat.
Grass-fed, outdoor meat is certainly healthier option. His position on saturated fat was surprisingly balanced and accurate.
Many doctors group saturated fats with trans fats, which is completely wrong. In the grand scheme of things, these three annoyances won't make a huge difference. Compared to all the other diets out there, this one is pretty good. I think this diet might beat Weight Watchers and many of the other mainstream diets out there, but I don't believe that this is the holy grail of diets.
Writing a book on eating the right food is tough. Our understanding of nutrition is changing so much, doctors and nutritionists are going to continue struggling to define what exactly humans are supposed to eat. If I were to summarize this book, it would be this: I agree with this premise, but it is debated how we should restrict calories and what "healthy" means.

Follow this plan and you'll absolutely lose weight. And probably your freedom, since you'll likely do murder for food. NO alternatives depending on amount of weight you have to lose, options given for categories of food lead to unrealistic combinations.
For example, for breakfast, you could conceivably have a glass of skim milk and an apple. For lunch, you could have a cup of plain yogurt a One of the funniest books I've ever read! Not that you would. On that part of the plan, you can have fruit, but only apples, berries and grapefruit.
No sugars, no sweeteners at all. It does expand on the next part and a little further on the maintenance plan, but not as much you'd think. If you cut out all added sugars and sweeteners, I doubt you'd need any other diet plan. So just do that and save some time and money. Who eats plain yogurt? View all 4 comments. Apr 02, Sandy Emerson rated it it was amazing.
I have to give this book five stars because I'm currently following the meal plan in it. And it works. I've lost 8 to 9kg in the almost four weeks I've been following it. Here's the thing - I hate exercise - I always have, but the half hour amount you need to do each day according to this book has been easy for me.
I walk and I dance. That's one of the things I loved about Doctor Stork and this book - he got me. In part of the book he wrote that it was okay to dance in your living room. That mad I have to give this book five stars because I'm currently following the meal plan in it. That made exercise fun for me and, to me, that's an essential thing. And the meals are yummy - sure you have odd things like barley to eat, but in the scheme of things, I eat better now than I ever have in my life.
My pallet is expanding and I like the thought of that as well. The book itself was a fun read. Dr Stork's personality shone through and it was great. It was a dry as dust book, it was actually the complete opposite.LaVerne May 27, , 2: Once you get off of the Scroll down to see my progress after one week on The Doctor's Diet!
Many doctors group saturated fats with trans fats, which is completely wrong. I started this diet a month ago. This makes it extra hard for me to lose weight. Once you get off of the diet you start to put back on all of the weight and that is the cycle most people have to deal with.
