The Stillman Diet
40+ Years of Carb Restriction

The Stillman Diet was the brainchild of Dr. Owen Stillman, who crafted this nutritional approach in the 1960s after treating literally thousands of overweight patients in his clinical practice.

Dr. Stillman came to believe the counterintuitive-to-the-conventional-wisdom notion that the carbohydrates in our diets cause obesity. The Stillman Diet became a national sensation after the publication of The Doctor's Quick Weight Loss Diet in 1967.

The Stillman weight loss approach recommends:

  • eating 90% protein
  • consuming six small meals a day
  • drinking eight glasses of water a day
  • taking nutritional supplements
  • minimizing dietary fat intake
  • dieting according to a three-phase approach

The Three Phases

Stage I

Dieters are restricted essentially to meat and other protein rich foods, such as:

  • Eggs
  • Seafood
  • Poultry
  • Some fish
  • Very low fat cottage cheese

Stage II

This is a two-week shape-up program. The diet now basically consists of low-carb, low-fat, and high protein foods.

Stage III

This phase--designed for lifetime maintenance--relaxes the above restrictions somewhat to allow some extra carbs.
