The Dr. Gourmet Diet Plan

Over the years the research has been done to show that losing weight and eating healthy are not about restricting carbohydrates or fat or protein (or any other silly fad diet). It’s about calories. 

In our new software you will find so much more.  There’s still the 2 week menu planner, shopping lists and delicious healthy recipes.  We are still the only plan that offers you the ability to create menus for your whole family.  We have not changed the choices for those challenged by health issues such as Coumadin use, lactose intolerance or acid reflux. 

The software now also includes:

  • Complete exercise tracking
  • Personal calorie record for menu changes or snacks
  • Goal monitoring for you and all members of your family
  • Recipe box with nutrition analysis
  • Use of your recipes in menu planning

The Comfort Food Diet
Goal Weight : Men

The table below will help you determine your goal weight.

First, find your height in the left column. Then read across the row for your Ideal Body Weight. This is an estimated target weight based on CDC and World Health Organization guidelines. There can be other factors in determining your goal weight, so it's important to check with your physician about what is a good target for you.

After you have identified an Ideal Body Weight, there is an estimate for the total caloric intake needed for weight loss (to get to that weight) as well as a maintenance diet (to maintain that weight once you've achieved your goal).

Once you have determined your daily caloric intake, click on the number to see the number of servings you should be eating at each meal, along with more information and your shopping list for the first week.
