Appropriately named "The Day Off Diet," this program developed by TV personality Dr. Oz includes one day each week where you eat your cheesy pizza, your gooey chocolate chip cookies or your creamy hot fudge sundae and still lose weight.

Exercise is recommended, but not mandated, on Dr. Oz's The Day Off Diet program.CONCLUSION
The Day Off Diet is a program that adds one day of indulgence each week. Since many diets' long-term success fails because of its 365 days out-of-the-year strict adherence policy, The Day Off Diet seeks to avoid the diet-deprivation mentality that eventually gets the best of even the most controlled dieters.
If you're someone who doesn't have much control when it comes to food, caution is advised as day-off binges might allow for too much indulgence. If you're someone who can have a slice or two of pizza and feel satisfied, then The Day Off Diet might be a practical and humane way of losing weight for you.Common Misspellings
