The author of the Scarsdale diet is Herman Tarnower M.D. He specialized cardiology in Syracuse University.
After more than 19 years of hard work, practise and research in the field of medical dieting, Dr. Tarnower published his book “The Complete Scarsdale Medical Diet” in the late 1970s.
Back then his patients at Scarsdale medical center knew his methods for years, but the world was just getting to know the miracle called the Scarsdale diet. It’s the work of his life with continued success and endless interest worldwide more than 3 decades after his untimely death.
Scarsdale diet popularity nowadays and thousands of followers worldwide prove the diet plan works even today.
The diet menu is law in calories (about 1000 per day), also low in carbohydrates and very low in fats. You can lose one pound a day, which classifies the diet as a fast weight loss diet.
When you lose weight so fast it is proved that you mostly lose water, so don’t forget to drink enough water while on the Scarsdale diet. (Read the Scarsdale Diet advices about the water below)
It is also hard to keep the weight off, because your body can start to hold water again when you return to your normal way of living. Here’s why I recommend to follow the “keep thim” two weeks after you complete the first 2 weeks on the Scarsdale diet plan.
Scarsdale diet is not easy to keep. It is a strict plan and most of the people return to their normal eating afterwards, they even eat more because most of the time while on the diet they feel hungry due to the strict diet meal plan.
It sounds a little bit scary, doesn’t it?
Despite those “difficulties” there are good news:
Throughout the years the Scarsdale diet has become more and more popular. It has been passed from hand to hand, ear to ear.
Nowadays there are many similar diets with some improvements and the original plan somehow stayed in the past.
