9781939457462: The Doctor On Demand Diet

A companion to the highly popular Doctor On Demand telemedicine app, The Doctor On Demand Diet provides a customized eating, exercise, and behavioral plan that optimizes your chances of success without forcing you to eliminate any major food groups. The Doctor On Demand Diet begins with the 10-day CleanStart phase, designed to control hunger without compromising nutrition by focusing on higher-protein foods and reducing fat and carbs―especially sugar, dry carbs, and bread. Next, the 10-day Customize Your Carbs phase personalizes your eating plan to match your own individual metabolic profile. Then, the Cycle for Success phase creates a more flexible plan that provides continued weight loss while preventing frustrating weight-loss plateaus. Along the way, practical advice, real-life patient stories, and targeted findings from the latest scientific studies show how basic lifestyle changes can boost your health while you slim down. A simple exercise quiz pinpoints your exercise “personality” and gives customized, practical, and fun exercise suggestions. Mental health self-checks help you gauge whether emotional roadblocks stand between you and your goals, and delicious chef-designed recipes and meal templates make it a snap to prepare healthy, tasty meals. With a program that fits perfectly into your life, The Doctor On Demand Diet provides a clear, customizable roadmap that can help you lose weight and keep it off for good.

About the Author:

Dr. Melina Jampolis is an internist and board-certified physician nutrition specialist (one of only a several hundred practicing in the United States). She specializes exclusively in nutrition for weight loss, disease prevention, and treatment. A graduate of Tufts University and Tufts School of Medicine, she completed her residency in Internal Medicine at Santa Clara Valley Medical Center, a Stanford University teaching hospital. In 2005, Dr. Melina hosted a program on the Discovery Network's FIT TV, Fit TV's Diet Doctor, and for the past six years she has served as the diet and fitness expert for CNNHealth. She is currently the president of the National Board of Physician Nutrition Specialists and serves as the medical nutrition director for the advanced heart failure medical nutrition program for American Outcomes Management LLP. Dr. Melina is the author of two previous books: The No Time to Lose Diet (in paperback as The Busy Person's Guide to Permanent Weight Loss) and The Calendar Diet: A Month by Month Guide to Losing Weight While Living Your Life. She lives in Los Angeles with her husband and two sons and maintains a small private practice there. She believes whole-heartedly in the role of nutrition in preventative medicine and achieving optimal health. She teaches a balanced and sustainable lifestyle based eating and exercise program and has helped thousands of clients over the past decade and a half improve their health and well-being. Dr. Melina is dedicated to the treatment and prevention of childhood obesity, particularly in the low-income, minority population. Her volunteer work includes helping to launch a healthy food pantry in the Hunter’s point neighborhood of San Francisco, and bi-weekly family nutrition and obesity counseling sessions at the Bresee Foundation in Los Angeles, a center for low-income, minority, at-risk youth.

Alice Lesch Kelly is a writer and editor specializing in health and nutrition. She has collaborated on many book projects, including a #1 New York Times bestseller. She is also an award-winning health journalist.


“Melina is one of those rare clinicians who is also very well versed in science. This is critically important in treating obesity because success requires both psychological insight and practical dietary strategies based on scientific knowledge. This book is a breath of fresh air in the utterly confused world of weight loss.”--Barry Sears, Ph.D., author of The Zone

“Dr. Melina Jampolis is my go-to doctor for weight-loss related medical advice. As a colleague for many years, I’ve found her commitment to sound research unprecedented. I believe this book has the ability to set people up for a lifetime of success.”--Devin Alexander, celebrity chef, New York Times Bestselling author of The Biggest Loser Cookbook Series, Executive Chef of Devinly Decadence.

“Dr. Melina’s multistage approach to nutritional weight-loss is very impressive. She combines the latest body of evidence-based research to establish sound and effective eating practices that are, no doubt, very effective at shedding body fat.”--Harley Pasternak Honors Kinesiology, MSc., New York Times Bestselling author of 5 Pounds: The Breakthrough 5-Day Plan to Jump-Start Rapid Weight Loss (and Never Gain It Back!)

“I'm in my 60s, and I feel healthier and stronger than I have in my whole life. I've lost over 100 pounds, and I did it steadily, without any yo-yoing. The structured flexibility built into this plan helped me never feel like I was on a diet. Instead, it gave me a new way to eat for life. I am forever grateful!”--Marsha Podd, R.N.

“Dr. Melina is a knowledge-packed powerhouse who provided practical, easy-to-implement diet strategies that were successful and sustainable! As someone who eats a primarily vegetarian diet, it was important to learn how to target appropriate protein sources into my diet. That, along with intentional eating that limited calorie-wasting alcohol, starch and sugar consumption, proved to be a formula that reaped results!”--Dana K. Edlis

“The best part of Dr. Jampolis’ program is the structure combined with the flexibility, which I needed as a busy executive and mom. Being aware of how certain foods affect me more than others has been the biggest lesson. I don’t feel deprived. I feel empowered to make the right decisions at each meal knowing how my body will react.”--Katie Marsh

“I lost 15-20 pounds over six months following Dr. Melina’s nutritional program. However, more importantly to me, I saw a drop in my total cholesterol of 60 points that allowed me to stop taking statins. Now I know how to select better foods to eat, and I continue to expand that knowledge to clean up my diet even more.”--Pamela Ellis
