 My Successful Experience with the Stillman Diet

The Doctor’s Quick Weight Loss Method, a high-protein diet developed in the 1960’s by Dr. Irvin Stillman, is just what the name suggests: a quick way to lose weight without drugs or exercise. I know because from August 2013 to December 2013, I lost 50 pounds following Dr. Stillman’s advice-that’s roughly ten pounds a month. No matter how you look at it, ten pounds a month can not be considered unsafe-that’s less than 4 pounds per week. I’d like to share my experience with you so that you might consider using Dr. Stillman’s diet as an easy and fast way to shed unwanted pounds.

By the way, Dr. Stillman’s book, The Doctor’s Quick Weight Loss Method, is still available on Amazon.

My Experience

I’m 5’8” tall and in August 2013, topped the scales at 185.5 pounds.  I felt sluggish, my appetite was out of control, I craved sweets and pasta constantly, I could never get full no matter how much I ate, I got a stress fracture in my leg when I tried running the weight off (plus I only lost 7 pounds during the 4 months I was running), and I looked and felt awful. To make matters worse, my medical check-up for health insurance revealed I was pre-diabetic, hypertensive, my “bad” cholesterol was high, and my BMI was over 30 which put me in the “obese” category.  It was depressing!

So I ate my last pizza on August  18, 2013 (yes I ate the whole thing by myself) and started the diet on Monday, August 19. Following Dr. Stillman’s “approved foods” list in his book, I stocked up on lean hamburger meat, lean chicken, tuna in water, 2% cottage cheese, and steak.

I confess that the first two weeks was the hardest; getting into the mindset to eat two boiled eggs for breakfast, a hamburger patty or can of tuna for lunch, and a broiled steak for dinner took some mental and physical adjusting. I had a mild headache and some GI distress as my body detoxed from carbs, but within three days I’d lost my first two pounds. The first two weeks I lost about 12 pounds. That was enough encouragement for me to keep going.

After two weeks the diet became easy. My appetite decreased significantly, so that a hamburger patty or can of tuna actually filled me up. I can’t tell you what a relief it was to eat a small amount of protein and feel full! Grocery shopping became a breeze, and as I continued to diet, I was consistently losing three to five pounds per week.  When I lost 20 pounds people started to notice and compliment me, which also helped me keep going.

After I’d dropped 25 pounds I had another medical check-up, and the nurse who did my bloodwork was astounded at the results-I was no longer pre-diabetic or hypertensive, my “bad” cholesterol had dropped to a normal level, and my BMI was 20, which put me in the “normal” range.

I lost a total of 50 pounds on the Stillman diet and am now in maintenance phase. Dr. Stillman has a “three-pound-red-flag-rule” to help you maintain your goal weight; as soon as you gain three pounds over your goal weight, return to the all-protein diet to lose it. This works for me because I can have days where I can broaden my range of food choices, but my weight doesn’t spiral out of control like it did before.

If you’re overweight I encourage you to get Dr. Stillman’s book and try the diet for yourself. Look at my before and after pictures-now, I’m proud of the way I look. I feel great, and I rewarded myself by buying lots of new clothes, something I hadn’t done literally in years. I just finished running a 15K without injury and have a half-marathon planned for April.

Give Dr. Stillman’s diet a try- you’ll be amazed and proud of the results! You can do it!

Stillman Diet Update – Wow

It is now the beginning of the 9th week of the Stillman diet and I am down approximately 24 pounds. That averages out to 2.6 pounds per week.

It’s a fast loss but not so fast that my skin is hanging off me. That’s the beauty of the Stillman diet, the body smoothly drops the weight and balances itself out. No matter how much weight you need to lose. A good example of this is Author Kelly L. Stones experience on the Stillman Diet (LINK) where she lost 50 pounds returning to her high school figure. Even losing this large amount of weight, there was no sagging skin!

Just a few pointers to help the diet along. It is important to take plenty of vitamins and minerals during the diet, although you should be taking them every day anyway. Particularly take plenty of potassium,  magnesium and a quality multi-vitamin. These two minerals are depleted due to the diuretic effect of the diet so you have to put extra back in. Dr. Stillman talks about this in his book, The Doctor’s Quick Weight Loss Diet. It’s also mentioned in the book, Protein Power which is a slightly modified version of the Stillman Diet. The Protein Power program works but it is slower due to adding a few things to the eating schedule.

If you are in a hurry to trim up, and who isn’t, Dr. Stillman’s program is the best. If you are not in a hurry and can live with a 50 percent drop in effectiveness, e.g. with my results, rather than 2.6 pounds per week, it would be 1.3 pounds per week, the Protein Power program is the way to go.

The important thing to remember is there is an effective and economical way to trim down to a healthy figure. All it takes is eating the right foods as per the Stillman program or the Protein Power program. I urge you to get both of these books to learn how to take control of your body image. With the holiday season approaching, make a resolution to get The Doctor’s Quick Weight Loss Diet and Protein Power. Then put them into action and feel good about yourself!

Stillman Diet Update – Impressive Results

I first learned about the Stillman diet in 1971 while I was a college student. Being young and active, weight was not a problem but I always take note of information that may be useful in the future.

As time progressed and activity levels dropped, weight became an issue so I pulled out the Stillman diet.

Oh I did try the more traditional diets. All they resulted in was being hungry all the time and practically no fat loss. No wonder people give up trying to get rid of excess fat.

But with the Stillman diet, it’s a totally different story. You get to eat EVERY time you are hungry. You get to eat as much as you want. You don’t have to exercise if you don’t care to.

And the result? I went back on the Stillman diet September 28th. As of today, November 24th, I have lost 21.8 pounds. I am almost to my goal!

I have not been hungry nor have I had to engage in an exercise program although I could use some exercise.

An interesting side note. I thought, in my regular diet, that I was getting plenty of protein but I began to notice my muscles were deteriorating. Since I went on Stillman’s program, my muscles are recovering. So, not only do I feel better and my clothes fit better, my physical health is improving from all the protein. If you are an older person, protein is your friend!

Another interesting note is that on the Stillman diet, your sense of smell and taste sharpen tremendously. It is an interesting phenomena.

The diet is amazing and simple to do. If you are a woman, you should read Kelly Stone’s story (LINK) of how she regained her high school figure in just a few months. She started out a skeptic and then believed she couldn’t do the diet but once she started, it changed her life. The Stillman diet can change yours as well!

Stillman Diet – Simple, Fast, Effective

For those of you who’ve read author Kelly L. Stone’s article ( LINK to Article) on her experience with the Stillman diet, losing 50lbs in a few months and returning to her high school figure, you know how powerful this diet is.

I myself have used this diet when needed over the years. Recently, I decided it was time to dump a few uncomfortable pounds and I’d like to present how I go about doing the Stillman diet effectively.

The first thing I do, before going on the diet is stockpiling beef and chicken. I also use eggs but I have to get those as needed as there is no convenient way to store them. I have plenty of hamburger, some steak for a treat and my two favorite chicken pieces, thighs and breasts, on hand before I even begin.

The reason is that once you start, you don’t want to be distracted by having to run to the store. The way I do the diet is to eat several small meals per day. For instance, I may start the day with a hot air cooked hamburger patty. To spice it up, I use plenty of pink himalayan salt, pepper and sometimes, spicy brown mustard. The generic Walmart brands are economical and do not have anything in them to throw off the diet.

The idea is to eat when you are hungry. You can eat as much of the diet foods as you want and still lose weight. It is the only diet I know where you are never hungry!

My next meal, depending on my mood is either another hamburger patty or a piece of chicken cooked on the hot air cooker.

After you’ve been on the diet for a couple of weeks your appetite is very reduced and so, maybe two meals is all you need. But you do need to eat the protein for the diet to work quickly.

In the early stages of the diet, e.g. within the first two weeks, you might be eating 4 or 5 small meals per day. After the diet settles in, you desire much less.

Another variety I like with my hamburger patty is to eat a boiled egg with it. It really spices it up.

It has been my experience on the Stillman diet that there is an average fat loss of 3.5 pounds per week. All with never being hungry!

The loss is slow enough that the skin adjusts but fast enough that you can see progress almost every day. For myself, I have already lost 7 lbs in two weeks. I don’t have much more I need to lose.

take control of your weight easily and fast. Look into the Stillman diet!

Save Forever – A Great TV Series

I don’t watch TV much. Instead, I pick out shows that have some meaning or value. One of the few shows I watch is called Forever, the story of a man who, over 200 years ago was killed trying to do the right thing, yet, instead of dying, he became immortal. The show is his story of trying to find out why and how it happened while he attempts to keep secret that he is over 200 years old.

A fantastic, spiritual show with a wonderful cast. Yet, ABC decided to cancel it even though it had a very large audience, e.g. in the millions. They also never bothered to promote it and put it in a crummy time slot. I found it just by accident as have literally millions of others.

Those of us who watch the show are trying to save it. There are petitions linked below which I hope you will sign:

Save FOREVER

Another Petition to Save Forever Please sign all petitions; make a difference. Still another Petition to Save Forever. Please sign them all.

If you’ve never seen the show, I urge you to watch the first episode. It’s a great story with a warm, loving lead character: Dr. Henry Morgan.
