Overview

The Pound a Day Diet: Lose Up to 5 Pounds in 5 Days by Eating the Foods You Love by Rocco DiSpirito

THE POUND A DAY DIET is an accelerated program designed to help dieters lose up to five pounds every five days--without frustrating plateaus--while enjoying all their favorite foods. It rewrites every carb/fat/calorie rule in the book! This delicious, easy-to-use, plan is specifically formulated as a Mediterranean-style diet that is carb and calorie corrected to turbocharge metabolism and weight loss. Complete with menus for 28 days (four five-day plans and four weekend plans), dieters first follow the five-day plan, switch over to the weekend plan, return to the five-day plan for the second week, and continue with the weekend plan-alternating like this right down to their goal weight. To help readers, Rocco has created 50 all-new lightning-quick 5 ingredient recipes, as well as ready-made suggestions for those who simply cannot find the time to cook; a primer on healthy and fast cooking techniques; calorie-calibrated menus and shopping lists; and a lifestyle plan for maintaining a lean, healthy body for life.

I have always hated diets, well, at least, I did. I tried them, but only to gain all of the weight that I lost right back. But, after two recent health crises involving my sister and me, she has developed diabetes and sleep apnea and I have developed high blood pressure, I have started to rethink that idea. Then, on Tuesday, I found Rocco’s book at Barnes and Nobles and I decided to start reading it right there in the store. It is just what we needed. Best of all, we love the meal plans. Don’t be alarmed by how low the calories are. Rocco uses fact based research to show how this will allow you to really drop those pounds. This book, like all of Rocco's books, is a must have for anyone who is serious about losing weight and making life changing choices. Buy it! I also want to send a huge thank you to whoever posted the link to The Hungry Chick Dieting Solution. Several months ago, I saw a woman on the train deeply engrossed in the book, so I asked her about it. She told me that The Hungry Chick Dieting Solution helped her lose ten real pounds and helped her stop a bunch of bad eating habits. I planned to order it months ago, but I honestly forgot the name. I didn’t make the same mistake twice when I saw it tonight. I read the sample chapter and like that it focuses on long term results. I have already ordered copies for both my sister and I. Between that book and Rocco’s, I am going to get our lives back on track. Hope this helps other people.

What an awesome book. He gives a detailed guide to sensible weight loss and has such an engaging writing style. He's really thought about his system and it shows. A quick weight loss to begin with in an encouragement that will hopefully inspire you to continue on with the Meditteranian portion of the diet filled with great good and healthy fats. I won't lie, I also look at the cover and hope that I find a man that look like him when I drop these extra pounds.

This book is about 1/2 as helpful as I expected. It seems to be very much the type of eating plan that would discourage you. I found the cost of many of the suggested foods to purchase if unable to make recommended recipe were quite expensive. It also seemed there was no room to switch around the suggested mails. It is not explained very well. My husband was the person who wanted the book to follow because he thought Rocco would have some great tasting "Italian" foods. He was also disappointed. Also 800 calories a day is rather low plus most of the suggested meals to buy have sodium amounts due to being preserved. Maybe not important if you do not have health issues.

All of the diet trendy items aside the recipes themselves are very realistic ways for you to change the way you cook the foods you love. I have the now eat this diet book and I think that in this new one he tries to discuss in more detail some quicker result ideas.

I have made a few of these recipes already and they are super fast and easy. I've made the egg rolls and the thai noodles a few times already. They are delicious.

I was excited to receive this book, but some of the ingredients in the meal plan are not for me. It's very few calories which made me feel very hungry. I wasn't thrilled...another diet book on the shelf!

Although I have a hard time buying into the entire claim, there are lots of smart and useful and tasty ideas in this book. Worth having as a reference, even if not committed to the whole program

I am very sorry I bought this book, especially because I bought it for my NOOK and now it is nonreturnable. UGH. Totally NOT what I had hoped, especially after seeing Rocco on The View to '"showcase" some of the recipes. Disappointed in the Per Serving part of the recipes, sugar amount per serving is not listed with the calorie, fat, cholesterol, sodium, carbs, fiber and protein... THAT would have been nice to have! Just totally bummed that I am stuck with this book....SIGH.
