Eating Every Other Day Diet

Eating Every Other Day Diet

The Every Other Day Diet, sometimes referred to as the EODD or QOD diet, is a diet plan created by Dr. John Daugirdas, a nephrologist, which is a doctor who specializes in kidney function and disease. The basic idea behind the diet is that you alternate between days of consuming normal calorie amounts and days where you fast (consuming 300 to 400 calories). This is supposed to stimulate your metabolism, while also making it easier for you to stick to the diet because you still get to eat your favorite foods several times a week.


"Off" Days


    Begin your diet with a fasting day. This will mean that you're allowed to take in only 300 to 400 nonprotein calories (calories that come from fat and carbs). This is known as the "off" day in the EODD program.


    Drink at least 32 ounces of water and consume 8 grams of fiber.


    Consume two 8-ounce glasses of tomato juice, one in the early afternoon and one in the early evening.


    Take calcium and magnesium supplements each day to help make up for the vitamins that are lost during fasting.

"On" Days


    Calculate a healthy number of calories to consume using an online calorie calculator (see link in "Resources" section). Input you height, weight and exercise amount to see how many calories you can consume each day to maintain or lose weight.


    Eat whatever you want to eat, as long as you stay within the limits of your daily allotted calories (which you figured out in the previous step). This is called the "on" day in the EODD program.


    Eat a large breakfast. Several studies have shown that eating breakfast each morning can help you maintain a healthy weight.


    Avoid eating a lot of food three hours before you go to bed. The later in the day you eat, the harder it is for your body to metabolize.


    Do some mild cardio exercise several times a week. Walk at least two miles a day, and try to get in a jogging session a couple of times a week.
