Three Hour Diet

Eating every three hours helps you control your appetite, preserve muscle, and burn fat, the author says. Itís not that exercise isnít valuable, but the new approach helps folks who canít exercise (perhaps because of painful joints or problems with obesity) jump-start their weight loss -- at a guaranteed rate of two pounds a week -- with diet alone.

How this diet works: 

The goal is to eat within an hour of rising and then every three hours after that for a total of five meals per day. If breakfast is at 7AM, eat a snack at 10AM, lunch at 1PM, another snack at 4PM, and dinner at 7PM. Dieters learn to watch portions, eating three moderate meals and two small snacks a day. The plan also allows for a daily treat such as a licorice twist, four chocolate-coated mints, or a cup of air-popped popcorn.

Good points:

You can eat out   The author offers lists that detail what he considers the best choices (i.e., low-calorie; low-fat) at many fast-food joints and restaurants.

Bad points:

This diet is about timing meals and snacks to keep appetite in check -- no special foods or equipment involved, but you have to figure out when and how to eat.   It also wants you to eat low-fat (See Low-Fat Foods: The Hidden Risk)

Duration:  

Twenty-eight days. Dieters repeat the program if they need to lose more weight
