Scarsdale Diet Book About The Diet

This diet was created in the 70s by Dr. Herman Tarnower.

Much like the Atkins diet, this diet works by getting your body into a state of ketosis, which is very helpful for weight loss.

The Scarsdale Diet is very low in calories with only 850 to 1,000 calories a day are permitted. Because of this many users of the Scarsdale diet complain about low energy and being hungry.

If you have an occasional sweet-tooth craving, this diet may be difficult for some because candy, desserts, ice cream and custard are not allowed.

With Scarsdale an average day would be half a grapefruit, a slice of protein bread for breakfast.

Lunch is cold cuts, while dinner would have a salad along with animal protein or seafoods.

The Complete Scarsdale Medical Diet: Plus Dr. Tarnower’s Lifetime Keep-Slim Program

By Herman Tarnower

For more than 40 years, Dr Herman Tarnower warned his patients to eat sensibly and stay trim. When they complained that diets didn’t work, he decided to find a diet that would work. After years of research and medical trials he founded the Scarsdale Medical Centre and developed a weight loss programme that he believed was simple, safe and fast. This book offers answers to a range of diet and health questions, and contains five complete 14-day menu plans, a lifetime keep-slim programme and guidance on a range of medical problems that are affected by diet.
