EODD Uses Calorie Shifting to Promote Weight Loss

Every Other Day Diet


The Every Other Day Diet Overview

The Every Other Day Diet is an eBook offered by Jon Benson and Janis Hauser. Both Jon and Janis are formerly obese individuals who were able to lose weight without turning to surgery. They then parlayed their success into careers as fitness coaches and fitness writers. Their weight loss eBook, commonly referred to as EODD is a diet that distances itself from traditional diet plans. Marketing itself as a nutritional plan that will work for the rest of your life, EODD is gaining support from some satisfied dieters.

EODD Pros and Cons


  • A long list of bonuses are included with purchase including an online virtual exercise demonstrator and The Radical Fat Loss Blueprint which claims to help dieters lose up to 21 pounds in 21 days. 10 other bonuses are included.
  • The diet is simple to follow and offers dieters the ability to customize their plan with 3 possible levels they can follow based on how much weight they want to lose.
  • Instead of only focusing on what you eat, the EODD looks at the emotional aspects of losing weight. Dieters are taught that they have to dedicate themselves to making a change, be willing to exercise to get the weight off and be patient. Understanding that massive weight loss cannot happen overnight.
  • PDF is available for download immediately after purchase.
  • 30 Days of free coaching is available


  • Although calorie cycling allows for a variety of foods (including fatty foods most diets exclude), it should not be considered a pass to eat everything in sight. A strong nutritional plan is required to get the most out of calorie cycling.
  • Program claims of 21lbs in 21 days does not meet the dietician recommended weight loss rate of 1-2lbs a week.
  • The EODD eBook does not have a detailed exercise plan in chapter 7. Only two pages in the eBook are dedicated to exercise. Jon recommends another book titled 7 Minute Muscle for a full workout routine.

Dietitian ReviewedDietitian's Notes

The Every Other Day Diet claims to work by a scientific principle of eating lean protein foods on alternate days, and having some foods you like in moderation on other days. The “not so secret video” explains this is how cavemen stayed in shape! They ate lean protein and never had a consistent intake.  They didn't eat rice or potatoes or vegetables because these weren't readily available.  Hmm, what else was it about the cave men? Oh yeah, I think their life expectancy was about 23 years. 

This diet will work for most people because it limits calorie intake; not because it's working with your body chemistry to perform a secret fat burning trick. You burn your body fat (the way your body stores energy) when you eat fewer calories than you burn.

The food plan is laid out plainly to tell you exactly what you should eat and how much. If you want to be told specifically what to eat, you'll like this part. He even includes recipes for meals and snacks.

How Does the Every Other Day Diet Program Work?

The EODD uses a propriety eating method called SNAPP which stands for Shake, Nuts, Apples, Protein, and Produce. SNAPP uses calorie cycling in order to stimulate weight loss. Dieters eat high protein meals one day to burn fat then consume their favorite foods within moderation on the following day. The constant change in eating calories keeps the metabolism from becoming sluggish and ensures dieters will consume fewer calories than they need, burn fat and lose weight. Some people choose to fast to obtain similar results but fasting is not a part of this program nor is it recommended. Recipes, meal plans, and eating schedules are included in eBook.

Every Other Day Diet Conclusion

The EODD comes with a full 60 day money back guarantee and offers a number of bonuses that are well worth the price. The diet is easy to follow, innovative and customer feedback on the program is high. But make no mistake, Jon makes it very clear at the beginning of the ebook that you will have to be dedicated, willing, and reasonable to make the program a success. The inclusion of a weight maintenance plan and a plan specifically for body builders and athletes makes the Every Other Day Diet a program everyone will enjoy.

Editors Note: Random comments and the occasional forum or blog post mentioning EODD is a scam does not appear to be accurate. We have purchased and reviewed this diet in detail and the information provided was accurate and actionable.

Is the safe when you are pregnant. I gained a lot of weight with my first child and do not want to make the same mistake. I am just wondering if I could do this not so much to lose the weight but to maintain where I am at now.

I purchased the program on Dec. 25th. After I didn’t receive anything from the merchant in 2 days I contacted customer support and they were able to help me pretty quick. The confirmation email somehow went into my spam folder. After I downloaded the eBook it took me about 2 days to read. A lot of the stuff in the book I’ve heard before but for some reason I didn’t get the click until I actually read it. The book is written in a way that was very easy for me to understand. After I finished going through the book I became frustrated because I’m not big on cooking and most of the meals in the book need to be prepared. I had to force myself to the grocery store to buy some of the recommended foods. In the past 10 days I’ve lost 4 pounds and it really hasn’t been that hard for me to adjust and make the program part of my routine. The biggest thing for me was not rushing and really taking my time to read the book. I’m starting to go through the Radical Fat Loss Blueprint now (one of the bonus books included). I’ll come back and let everyone know what I thought about that. Hope this helps.

The plan is good so far. Im a big fan of the electrolyte lemonade in the morning before I go workout. I can tell a lot of thought went into this program.

ordered the program and got immediate access to download the ebook in the receipt. Bonus material included makes everything a little overwhelming but I'm going to just start with the EODD book and move on to the bonus material when I get bored.

@Jason - I don't believe you can get this program for free legally. Your best option is to try the trial with the option to cancel. That costs around $4.95. Hope this helps.

Not a bad deal for the price. Got what I needed out of the ebook.
Posted On:January 3, 2010, 7:20 pm
I actually enjoyed the program but the only reason I'm giving it a thumbs down is because it didn't have what I was looking for regarding exercises and I didn't want to purchase the upgrade for the 7 Minute Muscle. The meal plan was very good, but I preferred to see more exercise options.
Posted On:January 3, 2010, 10:10 am
Is there any way to get this program for free?

Great diet.

This diet has a very good balance of nutrition information. I agree that the program lacks in exercise. I still think it gives a good foundation of eating habits.
Posted On:December 30, 2009, 9:50 am
Thank you! I really enjoyed the notes from the dietitian. I plan on starting this diet in the new year. I will come back and note my progress after the first few weeks. Are there any sample meal plans I can look at?

The eBook was very easy to read and follow. I've been on the diet for almost three weeks and have lost 5 pounds. I haven't been able to do much exercise so it's really been from following the food plan.
