Dr. Daniela Jakubowicz, a clinical professor at Virginia Commonwealth University and the Hospital de Clinicas Caracas in Venezuela, originally published her diet book in Venezuela and it became a South American bestseller, selling 300,000 copies. Now after continued research, Dr. Jakubowicz presents The Big Breakfast Diet, with its promise that you can have all the foods you crave, from pasta to bacon to ice cream, with just one catch—you have to eat them before 9:00 A.M. Based on the body's natural rhythms, eating a big, complete breakfast revs up your metabolism; helps burn more calories during the day and more fat at night; satisfies hunger all day long; boosts your energy; eliminates cravings for sweets; and reduces the risk of serious health conditions like type 2 diabetes and heart disease.
After explaining the science behind the diet, and how the body's hormones and metabolism process food differently depending on what time of day you eat, The Big Breakfast Diet centers around a full 28-day meal plan—breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks, plus recipes. The day begins with a big breakfast—a smoothie or shake, pancakes with berry syrup and ricotta cheese, Canadian bacon, a breakfast sweet—and ends with a moderate, delicious dinner.

I am 40 years old and have been on (and off of) every popular diet around in the last five years. They were either too restrictive or didn't control my cravings. I also was one that often waited until early afternoon before I would start eating because I thought I was saving calories. So, when I came across this diet it intrigued me, but I really thought if I start my day off with food I am going to spend the rest of the day eating everything in site. I was completely shocked to find out that wasn't the case. In fact, I made it through the first day with ease. (Which I have never done before.) Morning three I woke up and discovered I have lost 3 pounds! Now this is a way of life I actually see myself following. You get results and you don't feel deprived! If you want to lose weight, you have to give this diet a try! Daniela Jakubowicz is a genius!
