I love it when I’m able to write a book review about a book that I actually got a lot out of. Today I have the opportunity to do just that.
I was sent a copy of The 2-Day Diet: Diet two days a week. Eat the Mediterranean way for five to review and the benefits are twofold:
- I get to tell you beautiful people all about a book that I know you’ll love.
- I learned a lot about nutrition, calories, and eating healthy from reading the book myself!
I regularly read a great deal about health and nutrition (as in daily… 24/7). Before reading The 2-Day Diet, I actually felt like I was sitting on an impressive amount of information when it came to the whole game of calories in/calories out. However, after reading the book cover to cover, I now have a much better understanding of a body’s needs and a better handle on how the body uses food as fuel.
From the Back Cover:

The Value of Updated, Clinically Proven Information
A lot of people cling to out-dated fitness and weight-loss information that really amount to little more than old wives tales. So much clinical research has been done over the years and it’s kind of nuts not to take advantage of the information this research has uncovered.
Researchers, doctors, and nutritionists are sitting on more information today than they were 20 or even 5 years ago. In spite of this fact, most people still struggle with their weight and if most of us actually went for yearly checkups, we’d probably find several numbers that didn’t mesh with the numbers on our doctor’s chart.
I guess part of the problem is the fact that, sure, there’s a wealth of nutritional information available – but there’s even more junk food and empty calories available. Pile that fact on top of the fact that we’re basically a non-active society and it’s a wonder the problem isn’t worse than it is!
The 2-Day Diet: Diet two days a week. Eat the Mediterranean way for five presents a clear plan for taking control of your diet and your health. In addition to naturally solving weight issues, following this plan will also help you age better and will provide you with anti-cancer, anti-diabetes, and anti-heart disease benefits. If you aren’t at your optimum weight – this program will help you find your way and if you ARE at your ideal weight, it’ll help you stay there.
Some of the information covered in The 2 Day Diet Includes:
- the combination of exercises you need to be doing
- eight steps to weight loss
- the foods you should eat on the five days you aren’t on a “diet”
- WHY this program works
- meal planners
- how to become more active
- recipes for each of the 7 days
- and more…

From the Introduction:
It won’t come as a surprise to anyone reading this that we are getting fatter. Rates of obesity have reached epidemic proportions, and worldwide there are now more overweight people than those who are a healthy weight. Despite massive government investment in healthy eating campaigns and any number of different diets promising effective weight loss, the number of us who are overweight just keeps rising…..
…. With so many different diets available, can The 2-Day Diet really make a difference? We believe that it can. The 2-Day Diet is designed to help you make the right choices, lose weight, change your habits, and actively improve your health without leaving you feeling deprived. Our work with serial dieters has shown that this unique approach offers a real alternative for anyone who struggles to stick to a conventional diet. We were so impressed by the positive results of The 2-Day Diet that we wanted to make it available to everyone who is struggling – or who has struggled – to lose weight. The 2-Day Diet has paved the way to a slimmer, healthier future for many of our dieters…. – From The 2-Day Diet: Diet two days a week.
