      Dr Tarnover Diet Plans

      Dr. Tarnover designed the famous Scarsdale diet in the early 1970's. This seven to fourteen day diet was widely promoted at the time, promising rapid weight loss, up to one pound a day. Dr. Tarnover 's diet plan concentrates on eating foods with high protein, low carbohydrates, and moderate amounts of fat. The Scarsdale diet emphasizes drinking large amounts of water, at least four glasses or more a day, to flush out the system.

      Dr. Tarnover's strict diet plan specifies three meals a day, with no snacks or alcohol of any sort, and includes lean meat, fruits, and vegetables. His diet consists of 43% protein, 22.5% fat, and 34.5% carbohydrates. Vitamins and minerals are an essential part of the Scarsdale diet and artificial sweeteners and herbal supplements are added to speed up weight loss. Dr. Tarnover did not include regular exercise in his diet plan and it was not recommended for people over 40. The nutritional value and low calorie intake of the Scarsdale diet are not enough to provide the energy needed to sustain an active lifestyle.

      Although Dr. Tarnover's diet promises rapid weight loss in a very short period of time, it does not guarantee being able to maintain your weight. In that respect, it may be compared to other "crash" or "fad" type diets. Since exercising and eating properly are not emphasized, Dr. Tarnover's diet is not as popular as it once was. It has been replaced by other low carbohydrate diets, considered more effective as long-term weight loss programs.
