I haven't heard of the Hershey diet. Being able to eat what every you want for more days that what you stick to the plan makes it sound suspect to me. Plus the name is also suspect. That has to be an oxymoron if I ever heard one.Deb. I live near Hershey and there really is a very large hospital called the Hershey Medical Center. It is a teaching/learning hospital. Very excellent doctors. I work in the healthcare field and we often send patients there as a last resort. Don't know about the diet mentioned with that name but I will look into it...
I would have to have more info.
Just wondering if anyone has ever done the diet from the Hershey Medical Center? A friend of mine just gave it to me. Apparently you eat everything on a list for three days exactly the way it's laid out and then eat "normally" for the next four days. You're supposed to be able to lose about 40 pounds in a month. This sounds too good to be true so I'm just verifying here that I should chuck this in the recycle bin.can you give us some more information on this diet? what is on the list?
I don't know much about this diet, but from reading the posts, it's all the same as every other diet..portion control, no junk, sugars, processed foods, fruits and vegetables. So I don't know that this is anything magical.I agree. Americans eat more processed food than anybody else. You have to wonder if all those chemicals and preservatives are not making you fat. I am a pretty healthy eater overall. I prefer real food and don't eat a lot of snacks or fast food but it is hard to avoid added sugar and fat if you don't prefer everything from scratch.
You know, I went to Jamaica to visit extended family (they are Jamaican) and the entire week I ate fruits, vegetables, sweet potatoes, yams, fish, a little chicken, and rice and I lost 5lbs the entire week. Same thing happens when I go home to Brazil...I eat a similar diet and I drop like crazy...and during those trips I have a sweet from time to time...and sweets in those countries are 1000x worse than in the USA (like flan made with 18 eggs!)
I'm convinced it's eating simple food that causes weight loss, not the garbage in the USA we eat.

My husband also wants to lose about 10 lbs before we cruise so after I finish with this 3 day program I am going to concentrate on fresh fruits and veggies and low fat meats and fish.
I really don't understand why people do these crazy diets. I mean, why do you want to work so hard to lose weight only to gain it back within weeks of stopping the diet? It's obviously not a lifestyle change or something sustainable, so it won't be permanent. What's the point?It got me over a plateau. I had been stuck at 134.5 for over a month despite eating healthy and working out 5-6 days a week. I have not gained back any of the weight I lost and have lost an additional pound since trying this
