The Pound a Day Diet:

Lose Up to Five Pounds in Five Days by Eating the Foods You Love

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, and 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 twenty-eight 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 listeners, Rocco has created fifty all-new lightning-quick five ingredient recipes, as well as ready-made suggestions for those who simply cannot find the time to cook. Also included is 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.
