The Doctor's Diet: Dr. Travis Stork's STAT Program to Help You Lose Weight & Restore Your Health
I am obsessed with The Doctor's tv show. They have great little health and beauty tips based off of real medicine. When I recently saw their episode about Dr. Travis's new diet I went online and bought the book immediately. Every diet is going to be challenging but most of them work. If you follow most diets you will lose weight but at what cost. Most of them are not healthy and most are not sustainable. Once you get off of the...more
I have been on the plan for four weeks now and have lost a total of 12 pounds! (Hence the five stars). Most of the information is basic but I also found his reviews on certain ingredients (i.e. coconut oil, gluten) to be quite honest and he tells why he feels that way. I have not felt hungry at all on the diet (and I have never been known as a "light-eater"). Maybe I can do an update in another four weeks as I, unfortunately, still have a lot more extra baggage to...more

This book definitely reads like it was written by a TV host which got increasingly annoying. The target audience of this book is people wanting to lose weight, as described on the cover. I think that this book might work great for some people. It offers advice based on the most widely accepted nutrition research in the medical field and Dr. Stork is very positiv...more
This book includes conclusive research in the nutritional sciences and with a detailed bibliography. According to Stork, who is an emergency room doctor, the biggest problems in the E.R., are due to the food we choose to eat. Reducing the excess belly fat is an important goal of The Doctor’s Diet. The book is designed in with 3 stages of the STAT program. Part 1 includes the 14-day STAT plan. In other words, the STAT plan is started immediately. After that he outlines the Restore Plan, and the...more

I read this book but haven't implemented the program.
This book provides a clear and simple plan for lasting weight loss. Written by Dr Travis Stork of the show The Doctor's, his STAT plan for weight loss provides the dieter with a plan for health as well as weight loss. Jam packed with information on foods, good and bad, and much much more information.
I have read the entire book. I have not started using this eating plan but I am really forward to starting.
the only problem I think I will have is not being able to eat any of green vegetables high in Vitamin k.
The recipes in the book are very good too. All around this is the best...more
I would rather have this in hard copy.
Easy to understand with good scientific evidence as well as personal experiences; without too many of them.
Excellent guidelines to healthy living anyone can follow.
