When you’ve tried practically every diet and have struggled for years to reach and maintain a healthy weight, what do you do next? If you’re Heather and Terry Dubrow, MD, you create your own diet based on cutting-edge and Nobel–prize winning science that promises not just unprecedented metabolic control, but also an internal cellular rejuvenation with powerful antiaging effects. Then, after creating a diet that can transform your life from the inside out, you want to help as many people as possible look and feel their best, so you write a book about it!
In The Dubrow Diet, Orange County’s favorite reality TV couple share the diet and exercise plan they created to end their own decades-long yo-yo dieting and flip on what they call the “ageless switch.” The central concept is called interval eating, a practice based on research showing that when you eat is perhaps the most important factor in weight loss and weight control. With interval eating, the Dubrows will introduce you to a simple eating schedule that can help you:
reprogram your cells to go after stored fat for fuel.
lower insulin and normalize blood sugar.
fight off chronic inflammation linked to almost every major disease.
activate a process known as autophagy, your cells’ self-cleaning process and an antiaging game changer.
increase your energy.
finally reach your goal weight.
rejuvenate your skin and overall appearance.
So, what are you waiting for? You have more power than you realize over the hormones that regulate your weight and the molecular factors that determine how you age. It’s time to take advantage of this power with a diet that is not only doable but also sustainable and even fun! The Dubrows wouldn’t have it any other way.

Well written and researched diet book. Heather and Terry bring a fresh and fun perspective to the IF/interval eating trend. You can't beat the results, either! Great job, Heather and Terry!
In perhaps the most crowded self-help area imaginable (diets!), this book stands out for me in a big way. I listen to Heather's podcast, and I really love the Dubrows' dynamic, so I figured I'd give this book a shot. (If nothing else, I figured I'd enjoy their writing style.) I've tried and failed to lose weight countless times (like so many others I know), and I've always been terrified of the word "fasting." I thought I'd just get light-headed and pass out or something. After all, I'm usually thinking about my next meal before I've finished my current one. Food and I have a real love-hate relationship. But because of the solid research behind it, I thought I'd try it just for a sixteen hour stretch and hope I didn't die. But I was blown away by how GOOD I felt! I could focus! No more brain fog. And I was NOT hungry. Sure, I was ready to eat when my phone alarm went off, but I wasn't ravenous and ready to gnaw my arm off. I actually felt...good. I am really enjoying the foods they recommend, and I'm making my own tweaks without feeling like I'm "cheating." I am watching my weight come down on that scale, and I'm seeing a flatter belly in the morning. I am cautiously optimistic that I can actually make this into a lifestyle. Heather and Dr. Terry, thank you for putting the time, effort and research into this diet book. I think you're going to help a lot of people lose weight and keep it off! Fingers crossed!
I love The Dubrow's!!! This book is wonderful and helpful to me. This book is more than a way to eat and be healthy; it gives specific medical info regarding the though process behind this way of eating. We can all gather a better grasp of what we are doing and why it is so helpful. I am starting this diet or way of living today and am very excited. I think there are many ways to eat/diet on the internet, However, obtaining this information from a licensed/certified medical doctor/professional makes me feel confident in its elemental make-up. One thing I am trying to find or to get clear about is the following (which I cannot definitively find in the book): 1. What does a 16hr reset/8-hr Refuel look like? a. I think it is clear that it’s a 16hr fast (Reset) b. What is not super clear is the - 8hr Refuel 2. Is it that you fast for 16hrs, eat a full meal, then fast another 8hrs, then eat a full meal, then fast for 16hrs and repeat? I need clarification!! Please and thank you bunches.
Copied information-This is intermittent fasting and they are trying to take ownership . Sad
Confused on when I'm suppose to eat on the fast rate. With the 12 ? hours Disappointed!
