“In this breakthrough book, Jackie Wicks reveals a food plan that won't perpetuate the tiresome diet - stress - fail pattern. The Cheat System Diet gives you the template to lose weight without sending your hormones in a disastrous death spiral.” ―Sara Gottfried, MD, New York Times bestselling author of The Hormone Cure
“The Cheat System Diet is a refreshing new approach to eating and losing weight, that enables people to eat a diet which places more emphasis on foods that promote better brain health, and still letting people enjoy foods they love.” ―John Gray, New York Times bestselling author of Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus
“The Cheat System Diet is brilliant! Jackie Wicks understands how the brain works, and how habits are developed in the real world. This book clarifies why portion control is so hard, and makes it crystal clear why her "eat" foods will extinguish hunger. This breakthrough plan is realistic, loaded with practical information, and will add years of health to your life.” ―Steven Masley, MD, FAHA, FACN, FAAFP, author of The 30-Day Heart Tune-Up, Assistant Professor University South Florida
“The Cheat System Diet is a fantastic book for many reasons. Firstly, it works in a real way with how human psychology works...everyone is looking for a way out...and this book gives it to you...step by step. I love also that it relates closely to how the brain likes to function...without crazy effort and with significant short-term gains. And most of all, it is really congruent with how the author lives her life. For anyone who loves food but wants to lose weight without their brain objecting," The Cheat System Diet" is for you." I am certain that you will not only NOT be disappointed, but that you will also be ecstatic with what you are allowed to eat while still losing weight.” ―Srini Pillay, MD
“Most strict diets are illusions, knowledge of which keeps us away from them. One quickly gains back the weight lost on such diets because the lifestyle and eating habits we have formed over the years are so deeply etched into our reptilian lower brain that automatically drives nearly everything we do. In essence, our upper brain or hypothalamus intellectually welcomes such strict diets and writes checks that our lower brain cannot cash in so easily. By being a bit easy on ourselves and cheating a little here and there The Cheat System Diet will increase our chance of changing our eating habits.” ―Fred Nazem, Entrepreneur, Venture Capitalist and Philanthropist and Former Chairman of Oxford Health Plans
“More important than finding the 'right' answer, is finding a 'manageable' diet that allows you to choose foods you love -- eat them frequently -- and without a whole lot of self-control. Jackie helps hundreds of thousands of people successfully lose weight as her full-time career, and that she has compiled these results into a simple-to-follow and easy-to-integrate diet that doesn't require you throw out a single food in your kitchen. Instead, enjoy food!” ―Dr. Kareem Samhouri, CSCS, HFS

I started switching cheats for eats 14 days ago. Low calorie food does not equal the impact of high micronutrient food. I think I actually feel my stomach melting away. I do not have that deep hunger/cravings like I did before. I have tons more energy. And on top of it all, I have HOPE. And although I was not familiar with Quinoa and Kale and hummus, I ventured out and found them and have added them to all the other vegetables I was already eating. In with the eats and out with the cheats and …. Wow, I have found the magic diet pill after all this time.
And to think I was part of the initial group downloading the free eats/cheats sheet and received all the emails but never took the step to ‘engage’ in the lifestyle due to my ‘belief’ of what I thought it took to lose weight. I was wrong.
Thanks for everything.
Her Cheat System Diet is very comfortable and hopeful for all of us who have been at this for a very long time. She helps you to work WITH your brain and not against it. This gives you the strategies and tools to win long term. It is not a quick fix that takes 10lbs off of you today and puts 20lbs back on you two weeks from now. A game changer!
I send gift copies to several of my friends.
The refrigerator organization tips were helpful too. I stocked up on KlipIt clear containers for my veggies. Cooking is easier this way.
