 About the Book 

When I was little I lived with a binge eater/dieter, my father, who spent most of his life obese in the generous sense of the word, rather than that medical one where a couple of kilos does it.It very easily becomes a way of life- we do, after all, when we are little, like nothing more than to imitate our parents. I wanted to go on diets because he was.When I left home this pattern continued for a while. I lived with a person who was also a binge eater/dieter and the Scarsdale diet came into my life.THE SCARSDALE MEDICAL 14-DAY DIETWhere no portion is indicated, you can eat as much as you like.Eat until you are satisfied, not stuffed.Between meals you can snack on carrots and celeryBREAKFAST EVERY DAY:One half grapefruit -if not available,use fruits* in seasonOne slice of protein bread**, toasted, no spread addedCoffee /tea (no sugar, cream or milk, no honey)MONDAYLunch:Assorted cold cuts***Tomatoes - sliced, broiled, or stewedCoffee/Tea/Diet Soda/Water*** Can be subsituted with fish, seafood, chicken or turkey, or veg proteinDinner:Fish or shellfish, any kindCombination salad, any greens and vegetables as you wishOne slice protein bread, toastedGrapefruit - if not available, use fruits in seasonCoffee/Tea/Diet Soda/WaterTUESDAYLunch:Fruit salad, any combination of fruits[substitute lunch recommended - see bottom of page:]Coffee/Tea/Diet Soda/WaterDinner:Plenty of broiled, lean hamburger (see Meat & Poultry link for info)Tomatoes, lettuce, celery, olives (limit 4), cucumbersand/or Brussels SproutsCoffee/Tea/Diet Soda/WaterWEDNESDAYLunch:Tuna fish or salmon salad (oil drained off)with lemon and vinegar dressingGrapefruit, or melon, or fruit in seasonCoffee/Tea/Diet Soda/WaterDinner:Sliced roast lamb***, all visible fat removedSalad of lettuce,tomatoes,cucumbers,celeryCoffee/Tea/Diet Soda/Water*** Can be subsituted with fish, seafood, chicken or turkey, or veg proteinTHURSDAYLunch:Two eggs, any style (no fat used in cooking)Low-fat cottage cheeseZucchini, or string beans, or sliced/stewed tomatoesOne slice of protein bread, toastedCoffee/Tea/Diet Soda/WaterDinner:Roast, broiled or barbequed chicken (skin and visible fat removed before eating)Plenty of spinach, green peppers, string beansCoffee/Tea/Diet Soda/WaterFRIDAYLunch:Assorted cheese slices (preferably lowfat)Spinach, all you wantOne slice of protein bread, toastedCoffee/Tea/Diet Soda/WaterDinner:Fish or shellfishCombination salad (any fresh vegetables desired, raw or cooked)One slice of protein bread, toastedCoffee/Tea/Diet Soda/WaterSATURDAYLunch:Fruit salad, any combination of fruits[substitute lunch recommended:]Coffee/Tea/Diet Soda/WaterDinner:Roast turkey or chickenSalad of tomatoes and lettuceGrapefruit or fruit in seasonCoffee/Tea/Diet Soda/WaterSUNDAYLunch:Cold or hot turkey or chickenTomatoes, carrots, cooked cabbage, broccoli or cauliflowerGrapefruit, or fruit in seasonCoffee/Tea/Diet Soda/WaterDinner:Plenty of broiled (grilled) steak, all visible fat removed before eating- any cut of steak you wish- sirloin, porterhouse, London broil, etc.Salad of lettuce, cucumbers, celery, tomatoes (sliced or cooked)Brussels SproutsCoffee/Tea/Diet Soda/WaterUgghhhhhhh.
