Who doesn't love to cheat? Finally— a successful weight-loss program that allows you to eat that cupcake (and still lose weight!)

For nearly a decade, PEERtrainer -- a wildly successful online "weight-loss lab" -- has provided its members with the best information on how to be successful at losing weight. Now The Cheat System Diet, tested and proven by hundreds of thousands of PEERtrainer members, brings this expertise to you.  

The Cheat System Diet is based on a simple list that divides foods into two categories: Cheats and Eats. Cheats are the foods we all crave (cookie, anyone?) and Eats are nutrient-dense foods. You can eat as many Eats as you like. And you start with a certain number of Cheats every day, then earn more by making especially healthy choices, like having a big salad before dinner.

With The Cheat System Diet, PEERtrainer founder Jackie Wicks takes all the information you know about dieting and gives you a proven framework to make eating work for you. Follow Jackie's smart three-week program and you'll find:


*Nothing is restricted -- eat any food you like.

*Eats are unlimited -- eat as many Eats as you want.
*Exercise is reasonable - no more spending hours every day at the gym.

*No need to count calories, fat, fiber, or sugar -- just focus on eating your Eats!

With three weeks of comprehensive meal plans, an easy-to-follow exercise schedule, and more than 100 delicious recipes, The Cheat System Diet will revolutionize your approach to food and shrink your waistline at the same time. This supportive, easy-to-follow program allows you to eat well and lose weight, while still enjoying your favority guilty pleasures.

CHAPTER 1

 

How Cheating Will Help You Finally Succeed

Why You’re Doing Everything “Right” but Nothing Is Working

Accept what is. Let go of what was. Have faith in what will be.

—SONIA RICOTTI

If you’re like most people, you’ve read all the books, you know what you should be eating and doing, and you have a great deal of knowledge about diet and fitness, but you have a tough time following through. The diet and fitness world “helps” by giving us contradictory solutions, ridiculous gimmicks, and impossible

Praise for The Cheat System Diet

"The Cheat System Diet perfectly melds what works for weight loss with what works for people. The result is a fabulous diet that won’t just help you lose weight, but that you’ll actually want to stick to!"
–JJ Virgin, author of the New York Times bestselling The Virgin Diet

"In this breakthrough book, Jackie Wicks reveals a food plan that won’t perpetuate the tiresome diet - stress - fail pattern. The Cheat System Diet gives you the template to lose weight without sending your hormones in a disastrous death spiral."Sara Gottfried, MD, New York Times bestselling author of The Hormone Cure

"The Cheat System Diet is a refreshing new approach to eating and losing weight, that enables people to eat a diet which places more emphasis on foods that promote better brain health, and still letting people enjoy foods they love." --John Gray, New York Times bestselling author of Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus

"The Cheat System Diet is brilliant! Jackie Wicks understands how the brain works, and how habits are developed in the real world. This book clarifies why portion control is so hard, and makes it crystal clear why her "eat" foods will extinguish hunger. This breakthrough plan is realistic, loaded with practical information, and will add years of health you your life."
--Steven Masley, MD, FAHA, FACN, FAAFP, author of The 30-Day Heart Tune-Up, Assistant Professor University South Florida

"The Cheat System Diet" is a fantastic book for many reasons. Firstly, it works in a real way with how human psychology works...everyone is looking for a way out...and this book gives it to you...step by step. I love also that it relates closely to how the brain likes to function...without crazy effort and with significant short-term gains.  And most of all, it is really congruent with how the author lives her life. For anyone who loves food but wants to lose weight without their brain objecting," The Cheat System Diet" is for you." I am certain that you will not only NOT be disappointed, but that you will also be ecstatic with what you are allowed to eat while still losing weight." --Srini Pillay, MD


"Most strict diets are illusions, knowledge of which keeps us away from them. One quickly gains back the weight lost on such diets because the lifestyle and eating habits we have formed over the years are so deeply etched into our reptilian lower brain that automatically drives nearly everything we do. In essence, our upper brain or hypothalamus intellectually welcomes such strict diets and writes checks that our lower brain cannot cash in so easily. By being a bit easy on ourselves and cheating a little here and there the Cheat System Diet will increase our chance of changing our eating habits." --Fred Nazem, Entrepreneur, Venture Capitalist and Philanthropist and Former Chairman of Oxford Health Plans

"More important than finding the 'right' answer, is finding a 'manageable' diet that allows you to choose foods you love -- eat them frequently -- and without a whole lot of self-control. Jackie helps hundreds of thousands of people successfully lose weight as her full-time career, and that she has compiled these results into a simple-to-follow and easy-to-integrate diet that doesn't require you throw out a single food in your kitchen. Instead, enjoy food!" -- Dr. Kareem Samhouri, CSCS, HFS
