[Edition 78] Before he began dieting, John McIntyre weighed a staggering 120kg. Now, after three months of careful dieting, he weighs a remarkable 119kg. And he’s a whole lot happier.

His secret? The McIntyre diet, which blends the best of other diets to produce the individually tailored weight-loss programme that gave the Melbournian his stunning success. And the best news is he didn’t even have to give up the food he loved.

“The trick is to pick the right bits from a range of diets to create the right blend that works for you,” McIntyre explained. “That’ll give you a diet that’s more than the sum of its parts.”

For breakfast, McIntyre feasts on bacon and eggs. “I’ve drawn that from the Atkins diet,” McIntyre explains, citing the bestselling low-carb guru, Dr Robert Atkins. “I can really go to town with my breakfast, because it has no carbs at all. That’s why I carb-load at lunch with a large plate of pasta or rice or something. It’s really my favourite part of that Zone diet. And it’s practically fat-free!”

Dinner is usually a pre-prepared meal specially designed for dieters like McIntyre. “They’re great for allowing you to watch your calories. I always count them carefully,” he explained. “I usually start with a tin of Slim ‘N Easy soup, followed up with a Lean Cuisine frozen lasagna. Then I move onto my Weight Watchers roast chicken meal. I find two of those really fills me up.”

McIntyre usually finishes his meal with a healthy slice of Sara Lee lo-cal apple pie, accompanied with fat-reduced ice cream. “It’s so great that my favourite dessert can be so healthy,” he said.

On Thursday nights, McIntyre is allowed one night to ‘splurge’ which he always does with a family-size bucket of original recipe KFC.
“It’s carefully planned in the overall diet,” McIntyre said. “Having one night to let yourself go is a great reward for the deprivation during the rest of the week. Besides, if you don’t order chips, KFC is really low in carbs.”

The nutritional innovator is currently working on his book, The McIntyre Diet, and recommends his approach to everyone looking to change their lifestyle.
