The No Crave Diet Book

Two doctors teach you how to stop snacking and start eating.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

The No Crave Diet Book was written by husband and wife team, Dr. Penny Kendall-Reed and Dr. Stephen Reed. He is an Oxford Scholar and Orthopedic Surgeon, and she is a Naturopath M.D. in Toronto, Canada, with a successful private practice.

Easy to read and follow, the book promises to banish cravings, which as the authors attest, is the reason more than 80% of all diet attempts fail. The book methodically walks the reader through the weight-loss program, via an initial "transitional phase," whereby the dieter eventually stops snacking, instead enjoying three balanced meals per day. This is achieved in a multi-step process, which focuses on stabilizing blood sugar levels and Leptin/hormone regulation.

By revealing in laymen's terms the physiological and psychological science behind cravings and serotonin production, the dieter is reassured and empowered to understand cravings, and ultimately, learn to control them.

PRO
  • No Crave Diet reveals the reason why many diets fail
  • The program is backed by scientific research
  • The diet includes a variety of foods that are good for you
  • Authors have health background
  • Can regulate blood sugar
CON
  • Requires additional supplementation of various nutrients in pill form
  • It may take weeks to change habits, challenging the dieter to stick with it long enough to see results
  • Does not provide exercise guidance
DIET and NUTRITION

No Crave Diet features recipes that are delicious and satisfying. By following the recipes, one learns how to include adequate protein in each meal, and users claim that they reduce their cravings and hunger pangs in as few as five days.

Additional supplements are part of the program, and it should be noted that the authors are also "consultants" for two vitamin lines.

EXERCISE

Not part of the program, but fitness trainers are blogging about how this book has helped their clients overcome the habit of detrimental, between-meal-snacking of unhealthy foods.

CONCLUSION

The No Crave Diet Book fills a much-needed niche in the world of healthy eating. Who hasn't received the sage advice of the World War II generation, who vilified snacking as being bad for the waistline? Flash forward to modern day, and Drs. Penny and Stephen Reed show us why our grandparents may have been right.

Whether by stabilizing blood sugar or increasing sustained energy levels through adequate nutrition, the menu plans and eating tips are sure to support overall health and well-being.

This diet does work and it''s "'NO CRAVE"" mantra is true. Once you get over the hump of the first two days, you do not have cravings. I lost a lot of weight as I just dove right into the diet and the immediate results keep you going. Diets are never easy or fun but this one gets you results and changes the way you want to eat.
