Suzanne Somers Weight-Loss Plan

By Glenn Mueller and eDietsStaff

Though she is one of the most beloved personalities in all of America, Suzanne Somers' greatest legacy will no doubt be that of a prominent diet and fitness expert. And unlike those other celebrities who only jump on the weight-loss bandwagon, this popular actress and best-selling author has turned healthy living into a way of life.

Need a diet that'll let you eat filling, tasty foods while you lose weight? We offer 23 personalized plans, including the red-hot Suzanne Somers Weight Loss Plan. The sexy star celebrated her 60th birthday recently but remains every bit as stunning as when she first attained sitcom stardom back in the mid '70s. In fact, it is safe to say that her physique still resembles that of a fit and firm 40-year-old. What's her secret? Suzanne has found a virtual fountain of youth through healthy eating and regular exercise.

"Good health has been important to me most of my adult life," Suzanne says. "I have always watched what I have eaten, and I have always exercised."

While you can't bottle Suzanne's looks, energy or vibrant health, you can put her "Somersizing" philosophy to work for you. Millions of people have already had their lives transformed by this remarkable approach to eating that lets you enjoy delicious foods in abundant portions -- and still lose weight.

The Suzanne Somers Weight-Loss Plan on eDiets is much more than just a diet. It is a healthy approach to eating that can help you stay slim and sexy for the rest of your life. When you follow this plan, you'll learn about the eating patterns that work best for your body, so you can combine the right foods at the right time to lose weight the natural way. And because you'll also be able to eat plenty of delicious, real food, there's no need to worry about feeling deprived.

"I have all these people on Somersize who love it," Suzanne says. "It's so balanced. The weight stays off and they're eating great foods. They can eat butter, cream, sour cream and full-fat cream cheese."

On the Suzanne Somers Weight-Loss plan, you get to eat perfectly combined real foods, including proteins and fats, carbohydrates, fresh vegetables and fruit. Suzanne recommends eating fruits alone, on an empty stomach. For your meals, you can eat proteins and fats with veggies or carbohydrates with veggies and no fat. However, it is absolutely imperative not to skip meals. You will eat three meals a day and eat until you feel comfortably full.

"I eat a lot of food -- three meals a day plus a few snacks in between," Suzanne says. "I eat real food. You'd be surprised how many Americans rarely eat real food."

According to Suzanne, getting your sugar under control is a major factor in controlling your weight. That's why she recommends avoiding so-called "Funky Foods" such as sugars, caffeine, alcohol and high-starch foods like white flour and potatoes. These foods can create a thick mid-section because of their high insulin levels.

"I don't eat any sugar, and I don't eat anything that my body converts to sugar," Suzanne says.

The Suzanne Somers Weight-Loss plan has two basic phases: Level One (and Almost Level One) and Maintenance. Level One is the entry level to the Suzanne Somers Weight-Loss Plan, intended for eDiets members who want to lose weight. During Level One, you will eliminate Funky Foods, separate everyday foods into the four "Somersize" food groups (protein, fats, vegetables, carbohydrates and fruit) and create delicious meals by combining foods in combinations that aid in weight control and digestion. Even during this introductory phase of the plan, you will get to eat whenever you are hungry.

Almost Level One is for eDiets members who have been following the Suzanne Somers Weight-Loss Plan for at least a month and are starting to see results. Though they still follow the rules of Level One, these members are entitled to add additional snacks to their healthy-eating plan and slightly bend the rules.

Level Two is the maintenance portion of the Suzanne Somers Weight-Loss Plan, intended for eDiets members who have reached their goal weight. Though they continue to follow the basic rules of Somersizing, these members can start to enjoy Funky Foods in moderation (even chocolate and wine). During Level Two, members learn how Somersize for the rest of their lives -- without having to worry about major fluctuations with their weight.

Now that Suzanne Somers has linked up with eDiets, her plan is easier to follow than ever before.
