Dr. Bernstein Diet

Dr. Bernstein DietDr. Bernstein  Diet

This diet is a long time ‘weigh and pay’ program, having been around for 35 years.  It is a very low calorie, medically supervised plan that promises (and delivers) rapid weight loss.

Exercise is not required and they indicate you will lose about ¾ lb a day of only fat. That averages about 20 pounds plus per month!  Those results are astounding, but you do pay for them.  I spoke to a friend of mine who is currently doing this plan and she is paying over $1000 a month.

I honestly do not know how you can maintain muscle mass without exercise but this is their claim. I suspect that because it is so low calorie (about 800 calories a day) they may want to protect you from passing out!

Pros and Cons of Dr. Bernstein Diet

Pros

Rapid weight loss

Medical supervision and coaching

Use of real foods

Cons

Cost is prohibitive for most people

Very low calorie and no exercise does not seem like you would learn how to do this long term

You have to live near a Dr. Bernstein clinic

 

I would love to hear people’s experience with this one.  Did you go through this program and successfully keep the weight off?

The books below are written by a different Dr. Bernstein, however it occurred to me that they would be more useful and affordable for most people and they have excellent reviews!
