Overview

Eat a big breakfast, lose a lot of weight: It sounds counterintuitive, but it's true. Based on groundbreaking research into how the body's hormones and metabolism process foods differently depending on when you eat, The Big Breakfast Diet offers a 28-day-program—plus recipes—that lets you eat the foods you love (a doughnut or ice cream included) with the promise that you will lose significant weight and keep it off.

The science proves it: A diet based around a big, protein-rich breakfast sheds pounds; revs up metabolism; helps burn more calories by day and fat by night; banishes carb cravings; provides energy to burn; and satisfies hunger all day.

Learn to give your body the food it needs, when it needs it, and the rest is a piece of cake. Or pizza.

As actress Eva Mendes says, "I never leave my house without a big breakfast, and I've never had a weight problem; after reading this book, I know why."

    The Best Diet Ever

    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!
