The Big Breakfast Diet: Eat Big Before 9 AM, and Lose Big for Life

Workman Publishing, 2009 M01 1 - 246 páginas
Eat a huge breakfast, lose a lot of weight? It sounds counter-intuitive, but when a clinical professor of endocrinology and metabolic disease advocates it, maybe it's worth considering. And when that same clinical professor offers proof that overweight women lost nearly five times more weight on a breakfast cure diet than their counterparts did on a low-carb diet, it's time to pay attention.

Dr. Daniela Jakubowicz, a clinical professor at Virginia Commonwealth University and the Hospital de Clinicas Caracas in Venezuela, originally published her diet book in Venezuela and it became a South American bestseller, selling 300,000 copies. Now after continued research, Dr. Jakubowicz presents The Big Breakfast Diet, with its promise that you can have all the foods you crave, from pasta to bacon to ice cream, with just one catchÑyou have to eat them before 9:00 A.M. Based on the body's natural rhythms, eating a big, complete breakfast revs up your metabolism; helps burn more calories during the day and more fat at night; satisfies hunger all day long; boosts your energy; eliminates cravings for sweets; and reduces the risk of serious health conditions like type 2 diabetes and heart disease.

After explaining the science behind the diet, and how the body's hormones and metabolism process food differently depending on what time of day you eat, The Big Breakfast Diet centers around a full 28-day meal planÑbreakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks, plus recipes. The day begins with a big breakfastÑa smoothie or shake, pancakes with berry syrup and ricotta cheese, Canadian bacon, a breakfast sweetÑand ends with a moderate, delicious dinner.

This diet really works. It helps keep cravings down throughout the day. You indulge in the morning and eat healthy, low carb, small portion meals for lunch and dinner.
