Every Other Day Diet:
If you receive my newsletters, you know how I feel about diets and diet pills: Diet pills are not the way to go and fad diets are impossible to follow. Most people don’t stay on them and they gain weight back. Anyone who is worth anything in the nutrition and fitness industry knows this.
Every Other Day Diet is a book written by Jon Benson and Janis Hauser who both have extensive fitness and nutrition training. Both of the authors used to struggle with obesity. Just visit the page and look at the pictures as proof. Jon is a down to earth guy who has many other online fitness and nutrition products. (To see a full list, scroll to bottom of page.)
I call this book the ‘Anti Diet-Diet’, in that it’s really not a diet at all. The idea of this book is that diets are unrealistic and frankly, can be miserable to try to follow. That’s my favorite thing about it. Jon says that diets are designed to make you fear food. You fear failing and putting weight back on and this is a recipe for failure. I couldn’t agree more, because there is a very unhealthy mindset that what is bad for us is good and what’s good for us is bad…( not tasty).
What is in book? Jon is an intelligent guy and there are principles in this book that make his plan work. There is a bit of reading, but once you have read what he has to say, it’s pretty simple to grasp.
The concept of this book is that you can still eat some of the ‘bad’ foods that you crave and still lose weight, because the rest of the time you are eating healthy, not ‘boring’. You should enjoy real food…enjoy your diet. I have always agreed that a balanced diet is enjoyable and fulfilling. Balance is the key to a healthy diet. It ;s not all about sacrifice, it’s about eating healthy foods that you like and eating some of the ‘bad’ stuff sometimes.
Clearly, no one is going to lose weight by eating whatever they want and you shouldn’t eat junk. It’s not even about weight gain, it’s about what it does to your body. This book is about making small changes and not forcing yourself to do some unrealistic diet. Craving’s are fine. We all have them and they are okay to indulge sometimes. There’s a right and wrong way to do it.

You can choose from 1 of 3 plans: Primer (new to healthy eating), intermediate, or athlete. The plan for the athlete would allow for the least amount of junk food.
This book is for anyone who wants to lose weight and keep it the healthy way (without fad diets or supplements) whether you are a man woman or child. It’s not for the person who wants a quick and unhealthy way to ‘become skinny’. Ain’t gonna happen!
Besides receiving the book, you also get one full year of support. This includes 3 recipes a week and weekly motivational audios, success stories and success forum. Plus, there are 10 bonuses.
This is an e book, so you get it right away, but there’s no physical book. You can, of course, print off the pages. That’s what I usually do. I print off the pages that have a lot of practical information.
-I personally don’t have a ‘perfect’ diet and don’t know anyone that does. I like that this plan allows for ‘some’ of the stuff you aren’t supposed to have. I find it to be very realistic and it teaches you the difference between healthy eating and dieting. The two things aren’t related at all.
-No counting calories, no gimmicks or pills.
-This plan is doctor approved.
-The book is half price for now. I am not sure if it will change or not. I am not just saying that…I really don’t know.
-After being involved in a healthy lifestyle for 5 years, I have found that I look and feel my best when I am eating pretty much 100% healthy. There is nothing wrong with ‘cheating’ but remember to keep it minimal.
So, if your desire is to slim down the healthy way and enjoy yourself in the process, check out Every Other Day Diet.
