“His patients succeed without drugs, diet shakes, frozen dinners, or surgery. . . . Many patients who consulted him more than a decade ago say that their weight loss has been permanent . . .” ―Self magazine
From the Inside Flap
Bestselling author of "Thin Tastes Better, Dr. Stephen Gullo lets you in on his unique program which has a success rate almost 15 times higher than the national average and has helped patients lose more than 100 pounds and maintain the weight loss for more than five years. At Dr. Gullo's Institute for Health and Weight Sciences in New York City patients wait up to six months for an appointment and pay over $1,000 an hour for the secrets he imparts in this book.
Dr. Gullo's program, incorporating his more than 25 years of clinical experience, features The Ten Thin Commandments that govern all eating habits, and his easy-to-follow ABC Diet plan.
In Part One, Dr. Gullo shares his Thin Commandments, including:
- Think historically, not just calorically--identify trigger foods that can undermine weight loss
- Slips should teach you, not defeat you--uncover the "24 hour secret" and never gain weight from binging again
- Success is about substitution, not denial--discover the 10 most common diet-busting foods and their satisfying substitutes
In Part Two, Dr. Gullo outlines his simple ABC Diet plan. He takes the guesswork out of dieting and offers a three-step program, which begins with a ten-day turbocharged plan that helps melt away pounds quickly and easily. The ABC Diet is complete with menu plans and shopping lists. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Re: Print edition: This is a wonderful book, scholarly, thorough, and life changing. I recommend the print version highly. Don't waste your money on the Kindle edition.
Please, Dr. Gullo, have Amazon or your publisher correct this by adding page numbers to the Kindle edition as other books have done. This information is vital to people who need to follow a diet to be healthy and happy.
Like many people, when I experience stress I have often turned to food. Unfortunately, the older I have become the more difficult it has been to get the weight off again.
Before I even opened this book, I jotted down the "10 Commandments" that I expected to find. I mean, after all, how different could his advice be? And yet I found, that while Dr. Stephen Gullo incorporated some of the dieting advice that I had encountered before - he presented it in such a way that it was as though I was reading it for the very first time.
How many times have you read a diet book that had lots of recipes, but you really didn't have a clue as to what to eat when you weren't following complicated recipes? The Thin Commandments IS DIFFERENT. Dr. Gullo has included a list of "110 Best Diet Foods" and lists specific brands! In my opinion, THIS BOOK IS WORTH BUYING FOR THE LIST ALONE! The list doesn't deal with "exotic, gourmet" foods at all. These items can be purchased at your local supermarket and Trader Joe's or if you live in a smaller town - he lists the websites as well.
He presents this approach because you can have the BEST INTENTIONS in the world, but if you are absolutely SICK of "diet food" or are eating the same things over and over again - how long are you going to stay on ANY diet? If you feel you are being deprived, technology in the last 10 years has made such an abundance of foods that taste even better, in some cases, than foods that are loaded with calories.
I had to smile at what was termed "expensive" food in one review because it's not. Eggs are used a lot as well as fruits and other items. NO! Expensive is buying a grocery cart full of sweets and snacks; expensive is having to buy wardrobes in three different sizes; expensive is health problems such as diabetes from weight gains; but most of all expensive is not living your life to its fullest because you are too embarrassed to go to a social event or a reunion; full of regret for letting life pass you by.
Dr. Gullo mentions that you can be the most successful person in the world (I thought of Oprah BEFORE she lost her weight) and if you are heavy - how happy are you going to be with yourself? But he also mentions the reverse: You can have the most overwhelming problem or the worst day of your life - and if you have conquered your weight, that is the one area at least that you can feel pleased about during that time.
As I mentioned above, this book is $10 (or a trip for two to McD's). I urge you to just take one more step and believe you can do this just one more time and order the "The Thin Commandments." I learned SO MUCH from this book (and remember I'm a diet book "expert")! It has my absolute HIGHEST recommendation!
I never thought much of "diet books" in the past (and if I wanted to read one, I checked it out from the public library, because then I could take it right back). I followed my usual practice with this book, and before I'd gotten halfway through it I was on the Amazon web site buying my own copy to keep. By following the advice in this book, I've already begun to lose weight just by making a few simple changes and re-thinking my past association with food. Wish this book had been available years ago!
I lost 10 lbs within 2 months of reading this book. Now to continue to follow the commandments...
