I’m guessing you want to know…
1) What can I eat?
The Harcombe Diet® is all about eating real food and ditching fake food. You won’t be counting calories, or points, or carbs, or starving every other day, or two days a week. You won’t be eating less – full stop. You’ll be eating better. This short video will explain the power of not counting calories, but making the calories you eat count.
The diet is in 3 Phases:
– Phase 1 is just 5 days long. You can have unlimited meat, fish, eggs, vegetables (except potatoes/mushrooms), Natural Live (bio) Yoghurt, herbs, spices and one portion of ‘safe’ grains daily (brown rice, quinoa, oats).
– Phase 2 is followed for as long as you need to lose weight. Fruit, dairy products, baked potatoes and whole grains are re-introduced, as works for you (the books hold your hand through all this).
– Phase 3 is the lifelong weight maintenance plan. It’s how to eat ‘off-piste’ and keep the weight off. You’ll learn the rules of ‘cheating’ and see what you can get away with without re-gain.
2) What could I lose?
Take a look at an extract from Stop Counting Calories & Start Losing Weight, some Amazon reviews and success stories and you will see people sharing how much they’ve lost. For so many people, Phase 1 has become a 5-day super-tool – try it and find out why. Then you can discover Phase 2 and 3, while continuing to eat nutritious and delicious foods.
3) How this is different to other diets?…
The Harcombe Diet® is the result of Zoë seeking to understand why we find ourselves eating biscuits, crisps and confectionery, when this is the last thing we want to be doing. Her research, which started while at Cambridge University, culminated in Zoë’s first book Why do you overeat? when all you want is to be slim (2004; substantially revised 2013).
This book, or Stop Counting Calories & Start Losing Weight or The Harcombe Diet for Men will share the discoveries that Zoë made. If you haven’t heard of Candida , Food Intolerance and/or Hypoglycaemia and the impact that they may be having on you, learning more about these conditions could be as enlightening for you as it was for Zoë.
