Overview

Bestselling author of Thin Tastes Better, Dr. Stephen Gullo lets you in on his unique program that has a success rate almost 15 times higher than the national average and has helped patients lose more than 100 pounds and maintain the weight loss for more than 5 years. At Dr. Gullo's Institute for Health and Weight Sciences in New York City, patients wait up to 6 months for an appointment and pay over $1,000 an hour for the secrets he imparts in this book.

Dr. Gullo's program, incorporating his more than 25 years of clinical experience, features The Ten Thin Commandments that govern all eating habits and his easy-to-follow "ABC Diet" plan.

In Part One, Dr. Gullo shares his Thin Commandments, including:

  • Think historically, not just calorically-identify trigger foods that can undermine weight loss
  • Slips should teach you, not defeat you-uncover the "24-hour secret" and never gain weight from bingeing again
  • Success is about substitution, not denial-discover the 10 most common diet-busting foods and their satisfying substitutes

In Part Two, Dr. Gullo outlines his simple ABC Diet plan. He takes the guesswork out of dieting and offers a three-step program, which begins with a 10-day turbocharge plan that helps melt away pounds quickly and easily. The ABC Diet is complete with menu plans and shopping lists.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Gullo's Institute for Health and Weight Sciences in New York City boasts a six months-long waiting list. His weight-loss plan involves recognizing the "trigger foods" that often cause a loss of eating control and learning to substitute healthier items. The three-step program starts with the 10-Day TurboCharge diet for people who want to lose a relatively small amount of weight in a short period of time; the second step is for those who have more weight to lose and who will stay on the diet longer. Weight loss maintenance is the focus of the final regimen. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

I first listened to an audible version of this book and then bought it. It is really terrific! First because the author shows page after page that he really understands the challenges someone with serious problems with overeating faces; and second because he share great strategies for overcoming them. Sometimes his advice is easy, other times it is tough, but I really felt it was always dead on accurate. He really had my number! Really great specific strategies like "boxing in" and "boxing out" foods. You will not regret getting this book.!
