Eat What You Love, Drop Extra Pounds

Jan 19, 2016 03:32AM, Published by Family Features, Categories: Family Features, Family Features Lifestyle




If your holiday eating habits have you scared to step on the scale, don’t fret. There is a simple solution available to help you lose that extra holiday weight no matter your lifestyle or eating preferences.

The new, flexible Stop & Drop Diet is a healthy and effective way to lose weight. Complete with hundreds of simple ways to stop eating high-calorie foods and drop up to a pound a day in the first five days, it includes more than 200 balanced, satisfying and delicious meals, and is filled with simple meal lists and at-a-glance guides for easy swaps and small steps for success.

After analyzing the more than 40,000 products in the average supermarket, plus menu items at popular chain restaurants and ingredients in everyday recipes, The New York Times best-selling author and Reader’s Digest editor-in-chief Liz Vaccariello reveals hidden fat bombs that you should avoid and simple, healthier substitutions you can make.

“With my new diet plan, you don’t have to give up your favorite foods or cook all the time,” Vaccariello said. “Instead, simple substitutions and easy tweaks make success more achievable for anyone.”

The plan offers satisfying meals under 400 calories to help you kick-start weight loss and has three distinct phases: Kickstart, Steady Loss and Maintain. Each customizable phase offers 80 mix and match meals. From yogurt for breakfast to a salad for lunch or a burger for dinner – and whether you want to cook at home, grab something on the go or sit down at a restaurant – the visual guides show you what to stop eating (high calories, unhealthy ingredients) and what to start eating instead.

The Stop & Drop Diet also offers a complementary online course, which features Vaccariello presenting 21 days of motivational lessons in videos, slideshows and interactive graphics that teach how to stop making bad choices and start making good ones, so readers can drop up to a pound a day in the first five days. Individual results may vary based on various factors, but as always regular exercise and proper nutrition are essential to achieving and maintaining a healthy weight. 

Pick up a copy of “The Stop & Drop Diet” everywhere books are sold and learn more about the eating plan and the course at stopanddropdiet.com.
