Overview

Lose those unwanted pounds and keep them off once and for all with an easy three-week diet.

The Rotation Diet’s unique and simple plan varies the daily calorie intake over a three-week period, leading to an average weight loss of 13 pounds. Users who have a great deal of weight to lose may drop up to a pound per day in week one. When The Rotation Diet was first published, more than seventy thousand Nashvillians went on the diet and weighed in weekly at supermarkets. The results showed that the city became almost a million pounds lighter. This new, updated, and revised edition of The Rotation Diet offers a scientifically proven maintenance plan that requires only small changes to establish a permanently healthier lifestyle. There are tasty new recipes and menus based on the recently published USDA and HHS dietary guidelines, and numerous examples show how people who have changed their lives achieved success as they built weight-management confidence.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Is there need for another diet book on your shelf? Decidedly yes in the case of Katahn's new plan. Director of the Vanderbilt University Weight Management Program, author of The 200 Calorie Solution and Beyond Diet, and a dieter himself, he provides here a simple, sensible approach to controlling weight on a long-term basis. Men and women vary the number of calories they consume during a three-week period (the rotation for women is 600/900/1200 calories; for men, 1200/1500/1800); after three weeks and presumably a hearty weight loss, the dieter takes a breather and is allowed to return to ``normal'' eating habits. The premise at work here is that diets fail because people get tired of dieting and because metabolism gradually slows after the body maintains a strict diet. To control eating during the maintenance phase, Katahn makes a number of helpful suggestions (i.e., exercise, drink plenty of water and avoid artificially sweetened drinks) and includes some not-so-exciting recipes. 100,000 first printing; first serial to Self; BOMC alternate; author tour.
