QOD is a term used by doctors from Latin/English to designate doing something every OTHER day ("Quaque Other Die"). In the QOD diet, Daugirdas, a physician, comes up with a plan where you eat most of your food every second day. On that day you eat well, but not to excess. On the days in between, you eat only 300-400 calories, but you keep up your intake of key minerals, including sodium, potassium, and calcium, as well as vitamins, to keep you feeling strong and well.

The goal of the diet is to fool your body a bit. By eating a normal amount of food every other day, your body does not think that you are going into starvation mode, and this keeps your body from turning down its energy-burning thermostat.

This makes it easier to lose weight while only modestly restricting total average intake of calories.

The QOD diet allows a person to restrict their AVERAGE caloric intake, and yet not have to feel like they are constantly hungry or deprived of food. Daugirdas shows how the diet worked for him, and discusses the scientific thinking behind this new approach to dieting.
