Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Thanks to breakthroughs in nutrition and fat burning science, we now know what weight loss methods work the best and the quickest. Few people have mastered those strategies as well as Dr. Caroline Apovian, the director of the Boston University Medical Center's Nutrition and Weight Management Center and the author of this book. Dr. Apovian's plan is a model of concision: a 1-day Power Up jump-start followed by a 6-day Fuel Up. This cycle can be repeated as necessary for additional weight loss, fat burn, reduction of water retention, and eliminating hunger pang. A proven, permanent weight loss plan.

Publishers Weekly
Apovian, Director of the Nutrition and Weight Management Center at Boston University Medical Center, describes herself as "an obesity medicine physician." As one of the world's leading research-ers on obesity and weight loss she is privy to "the most up-to-the-minute scientific findings on what makes people fat." According to Apovian, many diets fail because they lead to muscle wasting (aka sarcopenia, or Shrinking Muscle Syndrome) which lowers metabolism. Her "hybrid" plan of two diet strategies promotes lean muscle for efficiently burning calories. Apovian calls her first strategy the "1-Day Power Up": no solid foods one day per week; instead, dieters feast on smoothies packed with pro-tein, fiber, and nutrients. Taking a break from consuming solid foods, she explains, is a time-tested method to jumpstarts fat burning and weight loss in preparation for her plan's second phase, the "Six-Day Fuel Up." Simple yet enticing recipes for healthy, protein-rich meals are included, along with a brisk workout routine of 21 minutes four times a week. While the diet is sensible (whole grains, veg-gies, fruits, etc.) readers may be particularly drawn to Apovian's impressive medical track record and the allure of a weight loss method free of calorie-counting and deprivation. (Apr.)
From the Publisher
"In the OVERNIGHT DIET, Dr. Caroline Apovian has created the ultimate blueprint for anyone trying to lose weight. Her one-of-a-kind diet delivers exactly what dieters are desperately looking for: an easy to follow plan for SIGNIFICANT rapid weight loss that lasts while also promoting better health and fighting disease, and increasing longevity. And it's the first diet book that gives dieters that extra edge in the battle of the bulge by maintaining lean muscle mass." —Louis Aronne, M.D., Director of the Comprehensive Weight Control Program at New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center and New York Times bestelling author of The Skinny

"THE OVERNIGHT DIET is anything but your standard fare in diet books. It's the real thing for people who are serious about losing weight as quickly as possible in a healthy, long-lasting way." —George L. Blackburn, M.D., Ph.D., Harvard Medical School: S. Daniel Abraham Chair of Nutrition Medicine, Associate Professor of Surgery, and Associate Director of Nutrition, Division of Nutrition.

"Caroline Apovian knows how to make the science of weight loss entertaining, and has created a diet that works on the inside for results on the outside!" —Cynthia Stamper Graff, author of Lean for Life

"Dr. Caroline Apovian, an internationally-recognized expert in the medical management of weight, breaks new ground with this book. She has balanced the profound need people feel for encouraging, quick results with a medically sound approach to dieting that produces lasting weight loss and better overall health. She has done this by combining a profound scientific understanding of the metabolic implications of weight loss with exceptional empathy for people who need help losing weight and keeping it off." —Theodore K.

    The recipes are so good, and I can feel myself slimming down alr

    The recipes are so good, and I can feel myself slimming down already. I got this as an ebook and I've already had my first smoothie with stuff I already had in the kitchen—spicy first date. After a trip to the grocery store, I'll be ready for my fuel-up week.

    Like intermittent fasting only better! I tried intermittent fast

    Like intermittent fasting only better! I tried intermittent fasting but it was just too hard to do. I like that the 1-day smoothie day provides the benefits of intermittent fasting… without the hunger! And I love that on the other 6 days of the week, nothing is totally off-limits. It’s something I can see myself sticking with long-term.

    Reviewed by Kristie Ingerto for Readers' Favorite

    The Overnight Diet, by Caroline Apovian, MD, is an audio book that will hold the listener's attention from the very beginning to the end. This book begins by explaining the author's background and credentials; as well as the amount of research and testing that has taken place to validate this diet as a means of effectively losing weight, building muscle, and improving one's health overall. The concept behind this diet is simple: one day to jumpstart the fat loss and then the following six days are meant to fuel up and continue the weight loss, and build muscle. Then the cycle is repeated until the weight loss goal is reached. The diet is explained in clear and concise terms. 

    I popped in Caroline Apovian's audio book, The Overnight Diet, one morning on the way to work and my attention was immediately caught. I did not want to stop listening once I arrived at work. It is a very easy audio book to listen to as the voices are easily understood and it felt as if I was a part of a discussion instead of just listening. A lot of information is shared at first before the specifics of the diet are outlined, which is good as it validates this particular diet and it also kept me hooked on the book. I like that this diet is overall straight-forward and simple to follow and that it is presented in that manner as well.

    nothing new about dieting in this book

    I don't understand why this book was so controversial. I guess no one actually read it. It's not just about sleeping. It's about eating right and exercise as well.

    Good diet book in theory...

    Aside from touting her protein shakes which taste awful, it's a diet nog unlike so many others. Made me feel better knowing she's a physician.

    more from this reviewer

    Lots of good advice & information but..

    I find a few things They said I would question - Like for example:

    Agave Nectar is NOT SOLD "natural"... it's processed and not that good for you.

    And in one of the chapters when it talks about the smoothies.
    They say "Everybody loves a Latte"... OMG it has Caffeine in it and NOT EVERY BODY LOVES CAFFEINE. And I am one of them I am sure out of MANY OF US!

    And it yet has gotten me any weight loss. And I have been on it for a week. ARG!
