Read an Excerpt

It's not just what you eat, it's when you eat it

Do you just have a plain bagel for breakfast? Do you think dieting means rice cakes, tofu, and plain broiled fish? Do you still crave fattening foods? Do you lose weight only to gain it all back?

You don't need willpower to diet. What you need is a revolutionary new eating program based on cutting-edge biochemical research, The 5-Day Miracle Diet.

With Adele Puhn's program, you will learn to eat certain foods at certain times and in certain combinations to regulate your blood sugar and keep it stable all day long. And when you're "in good blood sugar," your cravings disappear—a process that takes just five days!

Know your body chemistry

In good blood sugar, you will feel:

Unbelievable energy
A sense of well-being
Steady weight loss
Robust health


In bad blood sugar, you will feel:
Food cravings
An urge to overeat
Nervousness and irritability
Depression and moodiness
A lack of energy and spirit


In good blood sugar, you won't overeat. Uncontrollable cravings will disappear! So you can even have one or two "Extras" every week: cheeseburgers...hot fudge sundaes...whatever makes you happy!

Timing is Everything

Step 1: Eat within one half hour of waking up.
Stick to a protein and a starch: perhaps a slice of bread and unsweetened peanut butter, or a bowl of cereal with skim or 1% milk.

Step 2: Eat a hard chew snack within two hours.
"Hard chew" means a crunchy fruit or vegetable, such as raw carrots or an apple. Hard chews are the crucial element that will stop the cravings within 5days.

Step 3: Eat another hard chew snack two hours later.
If it's not yet lunchtime, eat a second hard chew snack even if you eat it right before lunch.

Step 4: Eat lunch no later than one.
It's not how close together the meals are, but how far apart that causes problems.

Step 5: Eat one or two snacks in the afternoon.
Space them no more than three hours apart—either a hard chew or a soft chew snack.

Step 6: Eat dinner no later than eight o'clock.
The earlier the better. Combine starch and vegetables, as well as a protein (salmon, chicken, lobster, lamb, Cornish hen, to name a few options).
