Q: On my second round on the SMD, when I substitute
the Gourmet, Money -Saver, Vegetarian and International Diets, can I alternate days one to the other if I wish?
but always subsitute the same day-for example, Vegetarian Monday for Gourmet Monday, and so on." (p.152)
all you have to do in order to get down to your desired weight swiftly and surely:
1. Start with 2 weeks ON the SMD.
2. Then switch to 2 weeks OFF the Diet and on Keep-Trim Eating.
3. If you need to lose more weight, go back ON the SMD or ON your choice of the other four alternate diets listed.
4. After 2 weeks ON one of the 5 SMD diets, switch again to 2 weeks OFF dieting and on Keep Trim Eating once more.
5. Continue this Two-On, Two- Off program until you are at your desired weight.
"I am looking and feeling much better, but want to
lose 15 more pounds. Can I continue on the Scarsdale Medical Diet for 2 weeks right now?"
No - you cannot extend the two weeks of the SMD to
4 consecutive weeks.
It is very important to be developing good lifetime
eating habits. Switch to the "holding pattern" for the next 2 weeks - the Keep-Trim Program.
