Fat to Skinny Fast and Easy

A low-carb diet that doesn't include exercise.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

Fat to Skinny Fast and Easy!: Eat Great, Lose Weight, and Lower Blood Sugar Without Exercise is a book written by Doug Varrier and David Mulholland, M.D.

Author Doug Varrier has lost more than 100 pounds and kept it off by eliminating sugar. Finding success with this plan, Varrier decided to share it with others through this book.

The stance of the book is that sugar is lethal not only to our health, but to our waistline. Various sources of sugar are revealed throughout this book since most people believe that desserts might be the only source. The sugar content of typical meals is revealed to give you more of an idea about how much sugar you are consuming.

Through this program, you will learn how to completely wean your body from sugar and refined carbohydrates while eating great, losing weight, and without exercising.

  • Program gives quick results
  • Easy to follow
  • Includes recipes
  • Author's story and experience with the diet offers inspiration and motivation
  • Excess sugar consumption has been linked to obesity, diabetes and many weight-related conditions
  • Educates reader on the many different names and sources of sugar
  • Eliminating carbs and sugar can be difficult for some
  • Does not promote exercise
  • Very similar to other low-carb, no-sugar diet plans

The main focus of the Fat to Skinny program is on the foods you eat and more importantly, the foods you eliminate from your diet.

Sugar and carbs are removed from the diet and replaced with no-carb foods like lean protein sources, low-fat diary and low-starch veggies. Out are all forms of sugar as well as some plant-based foods like corn, potatoes, some fruits and grains.

The program includes several recipes so that you can learn the proper way to prepare meals.

Some of the food items that are included in the recipes are:

  • Chicken Cacciatore
  • Spaghetti Squash
  • Baked Shrimp with Crab Meat Stuffing
  • Roast Cajun Pork Loin
  • Creamed Spinach Alfredo with Mushrooms
  • Strawberry Shortcakes

Fat to Skinny promotes a plan that can help you lose weight without exercise, even though exercise has been shown to not only facilitate weight loss but also improve physical and mental health as well.


Fat to Skinny Fast and Easy is not only an easy-to-follow low-carb plan but it is backed by the inspirational and motivational real-life weight loss story of author Doug Varrier. While there are many diet plans and books available, few of them have authors who lost 100 pounds using that particular plan.

If you are looking for a successful approach to the low-carb diet, this book could be a good tool for you. But be aware that the diet's no-sugar rule may very tough to follow for the long-haul and you might want to consider overlooking the lack of exercise program and instead, hit the gym instead in order to give your body and health the best results possible.
