About the Author
James B Johnson, M.D., an instructor in plastic surgery in the U.S., retired after more than twenty years in private practice to pursue his long-time interest in alternate-day calorie restriction. After witnessing many of his patients struggle with their weight, he became committed to finding a way for them to achieve a healthy body weight and improve their health without the stress and difficulty of complying with traditional diets. He has since become one of the foremost innovators in this field, having published various scientific articles and also conducting the first study to show how alternate-day calorie restriction can treat disease. His book, The Alternate-Day Diet, is revolutionizing the way that people approach dieting, and offers insights into how alternate-day calorie restriction can prevent disease, increase energy, and slow the ageing process.

I recommend the book which gives you the belief in the science, even though it is so easy to grasp, but do recommend trying the diet
So I've just completed my 2nd week and I've lost 6 pounds. Monday, Wednesday and fridays are my down days. I struggle with 500 calories but seem to be ok with 700 cals.
My up days I eat what I want.
My first week of this I struggled. The first two down days I took herbal life shakes. I was so hungry I pigged out at the end of the day and went to bed miserable. The first Friday I ate food. Bouled egg and wholewheat toast and a cup of tea for breakfast. Lunch was 300g low cal soup. Dinner was quorn mince and a veg stir fry. Snacks were a clementine and apple and 2 litres of water. No problems.My first few up days weren't quite right either. Not enough veg and too many treats.
But this week I've started to get the idea and it's not a struggle. I'm using Myfitness pal to monitor my calories now and I'm trying to keep 1800 cals a day on the up days.
So overall I think I maintain this as a lifestyle eating plan and my bmi should get into the healthy range at some point In 2013.
I would recommend this book to all the perennial dieters out there. Make this the last diet you ever go on.
