About this title


The Stillman diet became the rage back in the 1960's and 1970's. Why? Because it works! Unless you’ve always been slim, chances are you’ve heard of the famous “ONE Pound A Day” weight loss diet created by Dr. Irwin Maxwell Stillman and Samm S. Baker. You probably know someone who has tried it with great success, if you haven’’t done so yourself. Don’t delay try it now because it works!! After all, it’’s a diet that sounds too good to be true. To shift those pounds quickly you simply need to start the day with bacon and eggs, snack on chunks of cheese and a variety of fish or meats, top coffee with cream and feast on steaks fried in butter or lobster. Not exactly the typical foods you'd find on the shopping lists of most slimmers who've grown up with the idea that a low-fat diet is the best way to lose weight. But like all things that sound too good to be true, there’’s a catch. And in the case of the famous Stillman’s diet, it means that filling up on high-fat foods needs to be balanced by giving up most carbs including bread, potatoes, pasta, rice, chocolate, crisps, biscuits, cake –– even fruit, milk and some veg’s. But you never feel hungry and it’s an enjoyable and satisfying and more importantly a safe and effective weight loss plan. ONE POUND A DAY guaranteed just follow the diet.

About the Author:

Irwin Maxwell Stillman (1896-1975) was a family doctor in Brooklyn for 45 years before retiring to Florida in 1960. In the course of treating some 10,000 overweight patients, he found the most expeditious means of losing weight to be a high-protein diet based on Dr. Eugene Dubois's concept of specific dynamic action, or "the cost of digestion." In other words, it takes an extra effort--up to 30% of the calories consumed--to break down protein. By increasing the amount of protein consumed up to 90% of the diet, the "fires of metabolism" are raised and fat is "melted out" of bodily storage centers at a rapid rate. Stillman, who himself lost 50 lb. on his high-protein prescription, wrote The Doctor's Quick Weight Loss Diet (1967) in collaboration with author Samm Sinclair Baker, another successful dieter. Their book also contains descriptions of a number of gimmick diets, including a 350-calorie "pilot's diet" and a 40-calorie lettuce and tomato diet. Samm Sinclair Baker (born in Paterson, New Jersey, July 29, 1909 – March 5, 1997) was the author/coauthor of many how-to and self-help books, most notably The Complete Scarsdale Medical Diet which he coauthored with Dr. Herman Tarnower. The Complete Scarsdale Medical Diet followed the bestselling successes The Doctor's Quick Weight Loss Diet (with Dr. Irwin Maxwell Stillman) and The Doctor's Quick Inches-Off Diet (also with Dr. Stillman). He was one of the original founders of Stern's Nurseries, developers of Miracle-Gro, and authored several books on gardening. Baker died in Port Chester, New York in 1997.
