Discover What The 5 Bite Diet Is… And Whether It Leads To Weight Loss Or Weight Gain…
If you’ve ever looked in the mirror… or seen yourself in a photo… or—heaven forbid—accidentally turned on the front-facing camera on your smartphone when you didn’t mean to…
And seen an image of yourself that seemed somehow heavier… bigger… flabbier… chubbier… than you expected…
You aren’t alone. Trust me, I’ve been there.
And it isn’t just the way you look in the mirror or in photos or in your camera. It’s how your clothes don’t really fit right anymore, because they’re all too tight.
It’s how you notice that little extra roll of fat on your belly, or how your “batwings” are somehow bigger and more noticeable than you thought.TRENDING: Science Reveals Easy, No-Workout Ways to Lose Weight… While You Snooze!
And that is always a really tough realization. It’s when you realize that you’ve overweight—and you want to do something to change it.
But what do you do to change it? Well, you have a few options.
You could go on a diet. But you’ve tried diets before, right?
And somehow you’re here again, trying to lose some weight. So maybe a diet isn’t right for you…
(Plus, who wants a super restrictive diet that makes you give up all of your favorite foods??)
You could try diet pills. But what if you gain the weight back after you quit taking the pills?
Or… if you’re really ready for a BIG change… you could get weight loss surgery. That one is sure to work, right?
But wait! Before you schedule an appointment with a surgeon, take a look at THIS diet.
I know, I know. Like I said, you’ve probably already tried a diet. South Beach, keto, paleo, Mediterranean, etc.—you’ve been there, tried that.
I’m not talking about those diets. I’m talking about the 5 Bite Diet.
What Is The 5 Bite Diet?
The 5 Bite Diet was created by Dr. Alwin Lewis back in 2007. And the reason I mentioned weight loss surgery… is that the whole idea of the 5 Bite Diet is it’s supposed to give you the same weight loss results you would see if you had a gastric bypass surgery.
That’s right—the results of a weight loss surgery, without the actual surgery!

Basically, the 5 Bite Diet promises fast weight loss due to its extreme restrictions. Now, you don’t have to count calories… or weigh your foods… or even exercise.
The way the 5 Bite Diet works is that you do just what it says: you take 5 bites of food… per meal.
The plan also recommends that you skip breakfast so you can stick to eating just 10-12 bites of food per day. For breakfast, you can drink some black coffee (or water or unsweetened tea).
As for the food you eat (all 10-12 bites of it, haha), there are no off-limits foods. So, if you wanted to, you could eat cheeseburgers, pizza, donuts, and cake for every meal.
However, the diet suggests that at least 1 bite per meal—so at least 2 bites per day—should come from high-protein foods. This could be meat, fish, eggs, legumes, dairy, or tofu.
You are also allowed two 1-bite snacks per day, which should be eaten between meals. This will give you a total of 12 bites per day. You can drink an unlimited amount of zero-calorie drinks throughout the day as well.
While exercise isn’t required as part of the 5 Bite Diet, you can do some low-intensity workouts if you’d like. However, it’s recommended that you don’t participate in moderate- or high-intensity exercises while you’re on this diet.
Can The 5 Bite Diet Help You Lose Weight?
Because the 5 Bite Diet is so restrictive… and you’ll consume so few calories each day… yes, you will probably lose weight with this diet.TRENDING: This Massive “Mistake” Melted 48lbs Off Her Body (Click Here to See How)…
That’s because the 5 Bite Diet is a very-low-calorie diet. And while there’s been some controversy on the topic… research has shown that no matter what you eat (even if you stick to 10-12 bites of donuts & pizza instead of fruits & lean proteins)… you will lose weight if you have a calorie deficit.
But there’s a catch. Science has also shown that very-low-calorie diets— like the 5 Bite Diet—can lead to weight regain. And for some, that might even mean that you end up weighing more afterwards than you did to start with!
Plus, some research has shown that very-low-calorie diets can actually cause some problems—and I don’t just mean you’ll get really hungry! Eating a very-low-calorie diet could lead to digestive issues… a higher likelihood of disordered eating… and an increased risk for gallstones.
That doesn’t sound like that I want to get out of a diet!
Should You Try The 5 Bite Diet?
Okay, there may be a very small number of people who do well with the 5 Bite Diet. They might lose the weight and keep it off.
However, the 5 Bite Diet is definitely not meant to be a long-term eating habit. If you do decide to try it, you should use it for a short period of time… and then switch to a healthy, balanced diet that features normal portion sizes.BRAND NEW: These Delicious Desserts Can Help You Burn Fat & Lose Weight
And you should probably also talk to your doctor about the 5 Bite Diet if it’s something you want to try.
As for my personal opinion? I think most people shouldn’t try the 5 Bite Diet.
For most people, it will be a healthier, more sustainable, and more successful choice to pick up some healthy eating habits that will last you a lifetime. This can be tailored to your specific likes and needs… but it will probably include lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, and healthy fats.
How To Lose Weight For Good (Without Limiting Yourself To 10 Bites Of Food Per Day)
Eating only 10 bites of food per day obviously sounds like torture…
But if you’re like me, you’ve done some crazy (and unenjoyable) things before in the name of weight loss.
Unfortunately, something like eating only 10 bites of food per day is pretty unsustainable… and if you’re anything like me, you’re bound to slip up sooner or later…
(You definitely can’t eat only 10 bites of food a day for the rest of your life!)
So then as soon as you start eating like a human being again instead of a rabbit… the weight will come back. 🙁
And in fact, this weight loss secret was discovered by a well-known medical doctor… so you know it’s a healthy & sustainable way to lose weight.
What this doctor discovered is a secret “fat-burning switch” that everyone has in their body. For most people though, it’s turned to the “off” position… which is why you seem to pack on the pounds so easily, even when you eat healthy.
But what this doctor found is how to turn that switch to “on” so your body starts burning fat (the way it’s supposed to!) instead of storing it on your belly… arms… and thighs.
