Plan-D

Dee McCaffrey's Anti-Diet: A positive approach to weight loss.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

Dee McCaffrey knows a thing or two about dieting. After researching a link between processed foods and obesity as an organic chemistry major, she managed to lose 100 pounds on her own in 12 months and has kept it off for the past 17 years.

McCaffrey combined her knowledge and own weight loss journey to create Plan-D, a complete eating program including portion guides, weekly menus, recipes and a dining out survival guide.

Plan-D, which she calls the anti-diet, educates on the value of sound nutrition, the healing effects of whole foods and also enables you to explore the spiritual approach to developing a healthy relationship with food, eating and your weight.

Shunning all processed foods including sugar, refined flours, artificial sweeteners, trans-fats and food additives, Plan-D is a clean-eating plan that encourages you to lose weight and keep it off.

PRO
  • Author's personal weight loss journey is inspiring and motivating
  • Promotes a whole foods and unprocessed diet
  • Addresses the psychology of eating
  • Provides detailed scientific information on the benefits and dangers of the foods we eat
  • Encourages regular exercise
  • Diet is a lifestyle eating plan rather than a quick fix to weight loss
CON
  • Diet requires dramatic changes in food choices and eating style
  • May be difficult to maintain
  • Diet is not customized
DIET and NUTRITION

The Plan-D eating plan is a balanced diet that focuses on eating plenty of vegetables, whole grains, good fats, lean proteins, nuts and seeds.

Sample menu plans, recipes, shopping guides and nutrition information is provided so that you can learn how to eat to lose weight but not skimp on flavor or taste.

On the Plan-D diet you will eat three meals and two snacks every day. A typical day on the Plan-D diet might include:

  • Breakfast: Pumpking smoothie
  • Snack: Orange and walnuts
  • Lunch: Red lentil soup, a salad and hard-boiled egg
  • Snack: Plain yogurt and blueberries
  • Dinner: Pecan-crusted tilapia with vegetable curry

The book also includes charts and lists of foods to eat, as well as foods to avoid, food-combining guides, portion size guides and dining out strategies.

EXERCISE

The Plan-D diet is a strong proponent of two specific kinds of exercise: Walking and jumping on a trampoline or rebounder.

You are encouraged to exercise first thing in the morning in order to wake up your metabolism and lymph system. Brisk walking should be done five times a week for 30-60 minutes at a time. You are instructed to jump on the rebounder five minutes each day.

Other exercise like yoga, swimming, hiking, biking and resistance training can also be done.

CONCLUSION

The Plan-D diet is a comprehensive guide to healthy living. From recipes and food choices to exercise and understanding the role that fiber, minerals and vitamins have on our body's health, the Plan-D diet covers all the bases that you need to learn about and apply in order to lose weight and keep it off.

Its focus on whole and natural foods and its avoidance of processed food and ingredients will assist not only in weight loss but will also help to develop a healthier body and relationship to food and nutrition.

The best diet I've tried. And I've tried them all.

I have more energy, am losing weight, my diabetes is under control. My MD is amazed at the changes in my lab results.

This is THE diet I've been looking for for decades. If you are serious about your health, you must try PlanDee.

E.G.

I was introduced to Plan-D in April 2009. This book has changed my life for the better. Dee McCaffrey has written the most enjoyable to read diet book ever written. She combines her chemistry degree & training with her personal experiences to educate the average person about all of the mysterious ingredients in the foods we eat every day. I have shared her book with 3 of my friends. One of these has a 17 year-old son who completly understood Dee's research and he has lost 40 pounds and his attitude and confidence have blossomed into a great young man! I thank God almost daily for what Dee McCaffrey has given to me and my family...health.

I discovered Plan Dee wheh I started to use Bragg's apple cider vinegar-from Bragg.com.I am a nurse,always passionate about healthy food and healthy life style; I am european, from Transylvania,Romania.Since I watched the short version of Mrs. Dee's video from plandee.org I am following her advice every single second;I truly believe that we won't have any more difficulties with obesity and all health problems if all our American nation will stop making so wrong choices when they go grocery shopping; Dee's not presenting a diet -no !!! It's far and behind better than that... She is trying to bring people back, decades ago when people eat so many whole, natural and no processed food !! This is so easy !!The only difficult part is , at the beginning,to find these beatiful, clean, natural food products,because our grocery stores ,even the "Health food ",are invaded by-HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP, TRANS FATS, MSG, GMO, etc....It is so sad.....But I am so happy that I found the simple answer to my question that I had for 8 years ,since I came in USA- Why my daughter ,11 y.o now,can't loose her baby fat , even up to this age, despite my huge efforts in providing her a diet low in fat and low in carbs,but....so rich in sugar and enriched flour,and so on....I realized after I started readig Mrs. Dee's book that my mom aws feeding us the same way, whole foods, with no chemicals, with good, pure natural butter and wonderfool ingredients...Growing up ,it was extremly seldom when I would see a overweight person.....Thank you Mrs Dee for all your teaching and mind openning !!!! Thank you for helping my daughter Cynthia to stay healthy and beautiful !!!!God bless you and your work !!!!

I started eating this way in Feb 09 and have lost weight, never been hungry, my energy level has improved and I don't feel like I have to work at it. Dee's plan makes it easy to understand food and how our bodies respond to it.
