The Reverse Diet
Maybe you should consider turning your diet around.
Hear our interview with The Reverse Diet author, Tricia Cunningham.
You might say that you've tried everything there is in dieting and still haven't found results. But have you tried doing it backwards? Changing the order in which you're eating? Eight years ago Tricia Cunningham did. Narrowly missing 300 pounds, Tricia decided to reverse the way she'd been eating and dieting. The result was the birth of The Reverse Diet and the loss of 170 pounds.
Adopting an eating philosophy in which she ate dinner foods for breakfast, a moderate lunch and breakfast foods for dinner, The Reverse Diet has helped Tricia keep off the weight for eight years.
In her new book, a comprehensive website, and appearances on programs such as Good Morning America, Tricia has been helping people across the country finally manage their weight effectively with the Reverse Diet.
Considering most of us eat our largest, most calorie-laden meal for dinner and then go to bed a few hours later, we're giving ourselves no time to burn off calories, fat and sugars. And that means our body stores all of that as fat and we begin tipping the scales. However, with The Reverse Diet, you eat your largest meal of the day first. This gives you the energy and nutrients you need to get through the day. By the time dinner rolls around, you'll enjoy a small meal to get you through the remainder of your evening.

- Dinner is a Reverse Diet Tex-Mex Egg Scramble.
- You'll even enjoy snacks like a Reverse Diet Fruit Fiesta and Reverse Diet Zucchini Bread.
All of these recipes are outlined in the book and there are many other delicious menus and recipes to guide you. The only thing not backward from a typical diet is that the meals are nutritious and healthy.
The Reverse Diet website even has a Diet Club you can join. Here you can team up with other Reverse Dieters and swap stories, find recipes and helpful tips to ensure success. There are weekly weigh-ins hosted by Tricia, new menus on Tuesday and recipes on Wednesday, your own journal for tracking progress, new Reverse Diet info not posted anywhere else and exclusive access to live chats with Tricia.

There is no scientific reasoning for why reversing your meals would help you lose weight. The logical explanation could be that if you're eating dinner food for breakfast, you are eating well first thing in the morning. Many experts suggest that breakfast should be your largest meal.Common Misspellings
