The Park Avenue Diet Review

Dr. Stuart Fischer, MD is the creator of the Park Avenue Diet.  Dr. Fischer, a Manhattan internist, developed the diet so we can all acquire the look off the rich and famous.  

The Park Avenue Diet claims that we need to address more than just diet and exercise.  The seven areas that are involved are diet, exercise, lifestyle makeover, fitness, fashion, beauty, and poise.   The diet is a six week diet that promises that you will look younger and feel better, as well as have more energy and more confidence.  It is not just a diet, it is a lifestyle makeover.

How Does the Park Avenue Diet Work?

The diet consists of three parts.

FYI:  

The caloric intake for this diet is low and may be too low for some people.  It is always good advice to see your health care provider before making any health decisions.  

Meal planning, shopping, and food prep are necessary for this diet, which may be a problem for people who may not have time or the inclination. 

Conclusion:

It is refreshing to see a diet that covers areas beyond the diet and exercise, which are important components of long term weight loss.  It is disappointing to see that the Park Avenue Diet does not include long term maintenance.   For this reason, I do not recommend that you add it to your list of weight loss options.  

Thank you for reading, my friends.  I wish you success on your weight loss journey.

Kind regards,
