Want to know more about The Reality Diet?

The reality is that extreme diets that promise instant results just don’t work. For one thing, you lose muscle and water, but little fat, and may seriously jeopardize your health in the process. For another, restricting certain foods and food groups deprives your body of essential nutrients. In the end, the faster the pounds come off, the faster they pile back on.

After seeing many of his patients fail on these kinds of fad diets, and suffer health-threatening side effects, Dr. Steven A. Schnur, founder of the largest cardiology practice in South Florida, developed a new, breakthrough program. The Reality Diet is not low carb, low fat, or high protein. Instead it is rich in a wide variety of foods that are high in one key fat-fighting ingredient—fiber. Not only does fiber stop hunger, it also significantly lowers the risk of heart disease, diabetes, and a host of other illnesses.

Flexible and forgiving, The Reality Diet is for real people living in the real world. With eight weeks of mouthwatering menus, more than 200 quick and easy recipes, tips for eating in restaurants and navigating holidays, as well as an effective exercise program, The Reality Diet is both a comprehensive weight-loss plan and a blueprint for lifelong health.

Question: Other diets I’ve tried are either high protein or low carb. How is the Reality Diet different?

Answer: The Reality Diet is a balanced diet where you can enjoy healthful foods from all food groups without depriving yourself of your favorite carbs or overloading on protein. In addition, the Reality Diet is the only diet that guarantees you will consume adequate fiber—a key ingredient in weight loss and disease prevention.

Question: Will I need to count calories on this diet?

Answer: No. We have done the work for you. You simply need to follow our guidelines and eat the recommended number of daily servings of each type of food.

Question: Is exercise a must?

Answer: Absolutely—in fact, you should be suspicious of any diet that does not promote exercise, as exercise is critical for both taking the pounds off and keeping them off after you’ve achieved your goal weight. Aerobic exercise burns calories, while weight-bearing exercise builds lean muscle that increases your metabolism. Exercise also provides innumerable mental and physical health benefits.

About the Author: Dr. Steven A. Schnur is a board-certified internist and cardiologist who has been in private practice for more than 15 years. He is committed to helping patients achieve lasting weight loss through a high fiber diet
