The Scarsdale diet is a 1000-calorie diet for weight loss. Dr. Herman Turnower, a cardiologist, created it. He designed this high-protein diet (46% protein, 21% fat, and 35% carbohydrates) to help his patients lose about 20 pounds in just 2 weeks. In 1978, he published a book called The Complete Scarsdale Medical Diet (1).

Today, this diet is used for weight loss even if you do not have a heart condition. Of course, you must start this diet after consulting your doctor. Read on to know everything about the Scarsdale diet and how it can benefit you.

I am including a sample Scarsdale diet meal plan for you. Scroll down.

How Will You Feel By The End Of Scarsdale Diet?

After you complete the 2-week Scarsdale diet, you will find yourself rejuvenated, less anxious, highly productive, and of course slimmer than before. You will sleep better and be able to focus more on your work or school. In fact, this diet is going to help you change your lifestyle, which you will love. Now, let me tell you how this diet actually works.

Emily, a blogger, shared her personal experience with the Scarsdale medical diet over the course of 12 days. She followed a strict meal plan featuring specific foods and portions. On her blog, she describes her experience as follows: “I did feel a dull hunger for most of the waking day except for early in the morning and right after eating. However, it did not keep me from getting a good night’s sleep, nor did I ever feel faint (i).”

Does The Scarsdale Medical Diet Plan Work? What Tracy Tredoux, A Nutritional Therapist, Says

Tracy Tredoux, DipION, mBANT, CNHC, AFMCP, says, “Like a sprinter in a race, the Scarsdale Medical Diet may offer a quick burst of weight loss, but life is more a marathon than a short spurt and sustainable, personalized, and balanced nutrition is the ultimate goal. As with all ‘fad’ diets, the long-term effectiveness and safety are the subject of debate among nutrition experts. Weight loss regimes usually depend on dietary modulations and calorie restrictions, exercise, and sometimes drug intervention or surgery. However, most people are unable to maintain the lost weight, and many regain a significant part of it.”

How The Scarsdale Diet Works

Scarsdale diet is a protein-rich, low-calorie diet plan that works by suppressing appetite. You will eat a lot of fruits, veggies, protein, 4 glasses of water per day, and tea/coffee. These will provide you with the essential nutrients and keep your hunger pangs at bay. For the entirety of these 2 weeks, you are not allowed to take any snacks or outside food.

For your convenience, I have prepared a list of foods that you can eat and must avoid when you are on the Scarsdale diet. Take a look.

The next important thing that you don’t want to miss knowing is if the Scarsdale diet is safe for you to follow. Let’s find out.

Is Scarsdale Diet Safe?

The Scarsdale diet was created keeping the heart patients in mind, for them to lose weight. And you should remember that it is only meant to be followed for 2 weeks. Moreover, a major part of the diet concentrates on the consumption of protein and very less healthy fats. Yes, the proteins take time to digest and thus can aid weight loss without losing muscle mass (3). But, healthy fats and complex carbs should not be ignored.

Eva De Angelis, Dietitian Nutritionist, says, “It is worth noting that this diet restricts several nourishing foods high in complex carbs and fiber, such as pulses and starchy vegetables. This could result in constipation as well as a lack of vitamins and minerals.”

Sarah Bullard, MS, RD, adds, “The Scarsdale diet is a very low-calorie diet prescribing 1,000 calories per day and 43% of those calories should come from protein, 34.5% coming from carbohydrates, and 22.5% coming from fat. This means only 345 calories (or 86.2 g of carbohydrates) are allowed to come from carbohydrates. This is low! The ratio is not necessarily too low but the fact you are limited to 1,000 calories per day forces this diet to be a low-carb and very low-calorie diet.”

She continues, “The Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) for all adults for minimum carbohydrates per day is 130 g daily for basic functioning to occur. This minimum level provides energy for your brain, muscles, heart and blood.”

The Scarsdale Medical Diet is not actually a nutritionally balanced diet or a healthful diet, and you may gain back all the weight once you discontinue this diet. So, the bottom line is, the Scarsdale diet is not a safe option beyond 2 weeks and for those who want a permanent solution.

protip_icon Quick Tip
People with diabetes or high blood pressure should not follow this diet without consulting their doctor first.

But, for quick results or for cosmetic purposes, you can follow the Scarsdale diet along with a workout routine to reap the following benefits.

If you do have a full-fat version of dairy, then be sure to watch your portion sizes in order to keep your calories under control.”
    She adds, “It’s also important to include calcium-rich foods in your meal plans so aim for 3 servings per day from sources such as fortified cereal and breakfast bars; yogurts; cheese; almonds and spinach – all good sources of antioxidants too!”
