Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Eat a big breakfast, lose a lot of weight: It sounds counterintuitive, but it's true. Based on groundbreaking research into how the body's hormones and metabolism process foods differently depending on when you eat, The Big Breakfast Diet offers a 28-day-program—plus recipes—that lets you eat the foods you love (a doughnut or ice cream included) with the promise that you will lose significant weight and keep it off.

The science proves it: A diet based around a big, protein-rich breakfast sheds pounds; revs up metabolism; helps burn more calories by day and fat by night; banishes carb cravings; provides energy to burn; and satisfies hunger all day.

Learn to give your body the food it needs, when it needs it, and the rest is a piece of cake. Or pizza.

As actress Eva Mendes says, "I never leave my house without a big breakfast, and I've never had a weight problem; after reading this book, I know why."

I followed Dr. Jakubowicz's Big Breakfast diet before my wedding and was thrilled with the results! I now always eat a big breakfast, and I especially love the delicious, healthy smoothie as part of my breakfast. My husband loves them, too.
The most amazing thing for me about this diet is that I used to always crave something sweet in the afternoon or at night, and now I don't.
I also love going to bed not feeling stuffed, and waking up feeling light. It makes it makes it easier to wake up in the mornings because I'm looking forward to breakfast.
I highly recommend this book!

I gave five stars more for an idea.
I always was eating healthy, small potions, I don't like junk food, or too much sweets, but for years I kept gaining weight and being obese (my breakfast was always tiny). I tried almost any diet with no success.
When I accidentally stumbled on this book I read people's revues first and I also Goggled information about this diet (I did not want to invest in another diet book).
This diet made some sense for me because I've noticed that when once in a while I have a little bit heavier breakfast - I wasn't so hungry practically whole day.
I started this diet before my book arrived, based on information, which I've got from Internet.
I do agree with other reviewers that author's breakfast suggestion is too much and if you noticed she gives a ton of low fat foods. But if you will take a concept of eating 600 calories for breakfast and substitute low fat for whole food, you can eat much less food and meet the same goal of eating 600 calories (base on my experience yogurt has to be included in each breakfast meal).
I am following this diet for three weeks, I've lost 12 pounds and it is autumn, when people usually gain weight.
You don't suffer, you don't straggle and it changes your approach to food.
Face it, we all have fears of food - o my God what it is going to do to me, how much weight I will gain after eating this?
With this diet you have to eat, you have no choice, and if you have a craving for a cake or a candy, you don't have to wait forever to have it, just to the next morning.
And believe me, when 9 AM comes, you think to yourself: o thank God I can finally stop eating.
I have lunch at 2-3 PM instead of 11-12 and I am hardly hungry, same with diner. I don't get cravings anymore.
But the most important thing for me - that I don't consider this a diet.

I lost 26 lbs by following this diet and got to my goal weight easily. It's so simple to follow, and totally makes sense. Eat your larger meal early in the day, when your body needs it. Who believes your body wants a gigantic dinner full of carbs at night? This diet is healthy... you get plenty of veggies and fruit. (this is NOT Atkins, although it definitely is LOW CARB for lunch and dinner!)

After the initial weight loss, I have kept the weight off. Occasionally I splurge on larger meals for lunch or dinner, but I just go back to eating "normally" and any extra weight comes off again. By eating normally, I mean that I go back on the Big Breakfast Diet... because that is my NORMAL now. It is my way of life. Eat a big breakfast (including protein, carbs, sweets and dairy), then eat smaller lunches (3oz protein, fruit, veggies) and smaller dinners (3oz protein, veggies).

The diet is simple and it works. Amazingly, I found this book at a second-hand store, just by luck. It has changed my life!

This diet works. The trick is to eat only protein for lunch and a veggie salad with some oil and vinegar for dinner. If I eat any carbs for lunch, I get hungry in the afternoon to the point of being unable to resist food. I also drink decaf with a little big of milk or plain tea at night. I give it 4 stars because the information is not new. "Breakfast is the most important meal of the day." has been around forever.

I started this diet a month ago. I am a 39 year old male and my weight has been creeping up since reaching my goal weight last November. I tried every diet and my weight kept going up. First day on this diet I ate 900 kcal and 65 g protein for breakfast and I was very hungry in the afternoon and needless to say I ate too much and almost gave up. Next day, I decided to increase my protein for breakfast and see what happens. I ate 1170 kcal and 90 g protein for breakfast and was full all day. I ate 600 kcal lunch and 500 kcal dinner and next day my weight went down. I lost 7 lbs first week and I am now only 3 lbs away from my goal. I wished I knew this diet before starting to loose weight 2 years ago. I am so satisfied with food after breakfast and I have so much energy it's amazing. I must admit that I do not follow her recipes except the stew which I make with whatever veggies are in season. This is no low-carb diet. You eat lots of healthy carbs and a mandatory "treat" for breakfast. I do still count calories but noticed that it does not matter much on this plan. I eat more than in 2 years (~ 2,200 - 2,400 kcal per day) and still loose weight.
