Two out of three Americans are overweight or obese. In fact, more people die of weight-related health complications than from car accidents, drug abuse, smoking and gun violence combined. Obesity truly is an American epidemic, and that’s why ER physician Dr. Travis Stork created The Doctor's Diet, a flexible and workable diet plan to help readers lose weight, restore health, prevent disease and add years to their lives.
“You can be healthy, and yet, still love food,” Dr. Travis says, adding, “You can actually use food as your medicine … and enjoy it, and lose a lot of weight.”
Broken down into three easy-to-follow plans — STAT, RESTORE and MAINTAIN — The Doctor’s Diet offers scientifically proven nutrition tips that Dr. Travis follows in his own life. Plus, he shares healthy and delicious recipes.

The Doctor's Diet in Action
Joey, 21, lost 60 pounds following The Doctor’s Diet, in addition to his regular workout sessions. After decades of comfort-food eating and late-night trips to fast food restaurants, Joey decided to make a commitment to living a healthier lifestyle.
“At first, I thought it was going to be really strict and really hard,” Joey says. “I don’t usually cook my meals. It was actually a lot easier to cook than I thought … and shopping for it was a lot easier than I understood it would be.”
