Suzanne Somers
Published 03/31/2006 | Low Carb | Rating:


Although she’s best known for her role as ditzy blonde Chrissy Snow on Three’s Company, actress Suzanne Somers has also left a legacy in the weight-loss industry. This age-defying diet and fitness leader has created a brand around herself, offering a well-rounded line of products -- from food and drinks to kitchen appliances.

And how can one forget her flab-fighting Thighmaster? 

Perhaps her biggest mark has been her approach to dieting. With more than 13 books under her belt, Somers has put much of her emphasis on the Somersize program – having written seven books on the plan over the last decade. Divided into two stages, the weight-loss phase is more restrictive of carbohydrates than the maintenance phase. The plan averages 1,200 calories a day.

There’s nothing fluffy about this diet regime that allows you to eat foods rich in fat and low in refined carbs. Load up your plate with steak, fish, chicken, butter and cream. There’s also room for low-starch vegetables, whole grain pastas, nonfat dairy products and fresh fruits. 

Somers endorses a diet that’s low in carbs and high in proteins. While it may mimic other popular, low-carb plans such as Atkins, she puts her own spin on things. For example, Somers is a huge advocate of food-combining, a process by which different categories of food shouldn’t be eaten together.  The plan is like a hybrid of low-carb eating and food combining. Eat liberally but abide by Somers’ super seven rules for success.

    I used this diet for several months and had great success with it (although I did combine it with taking an ephedra supplement). It is less restrictive than Atkins. You can have protein and veggies together and carbs and veggies together (and even fruit) so you don't feel deprived of carbs (but they must be as unrefined as possible - whole grains, brown or wild rice). It is also more healthy than Atkins as you are getting veggies and fruits and carbs.
