Is the Dubrow Diet healthy? A dietitian weighs in –

“This isn’t your typical diet book,” promises the “Dubrow Diet”, by Heather Dubrow and Terry Dubrow, MD, FACS. Heather Dubrow is a self-described champagne-and dessert-loving woman who appeared as a cast member of “The Real Housewives of Orange County”; her husband and co-author is Terry Dubrow, M.D., F.A.C.S., a plastic surgeon who appears on E’s “Botched” and “Botched by Nature”. After years of serial dieting, the couple say they put their best practices — along with Dr. Dubrow’s medical background — into the plan.

In essence, what you get is the plan that worked for them — an intermittent fasting program they term “interval eating”, which, they say, is a “metabolism-targeted plan” that’s designed to “burn fat” and “activate the anti-aging ability found in your cells.” Whether it will do all that has yet to be proven, though there is interesting research behind intermittent fasting (IF). Here’s a a breakdown of the Dubrow Diet, a quick review of IF, and some info to keep in mind if you want to give it a try.
