From the Back Cover
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."

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 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've been following Daniela Jakubowicz's diet since August 7, 2013, and 6 weeks later, I've already lost 33 lbs. I am rarely hungry, and when I am, it's the kind of hunger that can be satisfied with a piece of fruit, not a whole new meal. I've gotten the hang of eating a big breakfast now, but I'm disappointed that the book doesn't offer any tips for how to work that into your day. My tips: Do all the chopping and defrosting for your meals the night before. If you want to eat something that requires the oven, consider making it the night before and just reheating it in the morning. Also, when I was first getting started, I had to take frequent sips of water between bites because I wasn't even used to chewing food when I wasn't hungry - that went away after a few days.Read more ›
