Originally designed for celebrities seeking weight-loss success, Harley Pasternak released his first book, 5 Factor Fitness, in 2005.  As his first book received high acclaims and popularity, he released his second follow-up book in 2006.  Titled 5 Factor Diet, Pasternak’s second book soared to the New York Times Bestseller’s List, and has been promoted by media moguls such as Oprah Winfrey, Tyra Banks, and many others.

With a Masters of Science degree in Exercise Physiology and Nutritional Sciences, in addition to an Honors Degree in Kinesiology, Pasternak is certified by the American College of Sports Medicine and the Canadian Society of Exercise Physiology.

How does it Work?

Pasternak’s plan for success revolves around his philosophy that individuals should eat five times a day, while also adding healthy foods and fast exercises into a daily regimen.  With easy cooking methods that even involve using simple kitchen items such as a blender and toaster, Pasternak’s diet plan involves the implementation of 5 core strategies:

  • A 5-Week Plan

Pasternak claims that the program will provide dieters with results within five weeks.  Also, as the plan is designed to be easy to follow, Pasternak asserts that the diet plan can be extended for long-term success.

  • Eat 5 Meals a Day

Eating five meals a day prevents overeating, sugar cravings, and also staves off hunger.  By eating more frequently, Pasternak claims that individuals will lose weight while not feeling deprived.

  • Use 5 Ingredients in Each Meal

With recipes and meal options, Pasternak’s menus incorporate only five ingredients, and meals only take five minutes to prepare.

  • 25-Minute Workouts

Instead of focusing on long workouts, Pasternak utilizes his personal training experience and expertise to teach individuals how to optimize their workout in a shorter time period.

  • 5 Cheat Days in 5 Weeks

Pasternak’s plan allows dieters to enjoy 5 cheat days, where individuals can eat whatever they choose.  He asserts that this break allows individuals to feel more empowered and less restricted.
