The Diet Solution Program (ebook) is fast becoming one of the most popular pure diet plans to aid healthy weight loss. Here is our full review of the diet plan that Isabel De Los Rios has created.
This is our favorite diet based weight loss plan. It provides all the resources that you need to lose weight with healthy dieting.
The Diet Solution Program is a plan that puts diet at the heart of weight loss. Many of the other popular weight loss programs that we have looked at combine diet and exercise to aid weight loss. Although this is often the best solution, sometimes a good diet plan is essential, especially when it is not possible to exercise.

The 8 eBooks that make up the Diet Solution Program
The Diet Solution Program consists of 8 eBooks (electronic files in pdf format) that you download after purchasing, in the same way that you download a Kindle book or iTunes music.
- The Diet Solution Manual
- The Diet Solution Success Journal
- The Diet Solution Food Shopping Guide
- The Diet Solution Recipe Guide
- 14 Days To A Sexy Body
- The Top 10 Most Common Nutrition Mistakes
- Done For You Meal Plans
- The Metabolism Type Test
There is also The Diet Solution Quick Start Guide, which is actually much more than a “quick start” as it is 41 pages of advice on preparing yourself for the plan, weight loss tips, instructions on using other parts of the plan such as the Metabolism Type Test, lots of information on food and diet, shopping for healthy food and some meal plans too.
In fact, the The Diet Solution Quick Start Guide provides as much information alone as some other weight loss plans do, and this is just the introductory text. Here is an example from on the meal plans in the Quick Start Guide:
4 oz grilled chicken (white or dark). Over a large salad made up of Romaine lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers and celery, 1 cup asparagus added to the salad or on the side. Apple Cider Vinegar and 1 Tbsp flax seed oil as dressing.
A delicious recipe idea, healthy, nutritious, tasty and hits all the right bases with protein, carbohydrates and fats.
The Diet Solution Manual
This is the core of the program. It is 100 pages divided into 2 parts, which are split into 16 chapters.
It starts with a chapter called “A Program for Success” which provides motivational and organisation tips to ensure that you are properly prepared to follow the plan correctly.
The second chapter, ”Three Steps to Weight Loss”, introduces the concept of Your Metabolism Type and teaches you how to create your own personalized meal plan, and expands on the shopping advice from the Quick Start Guide.
The next chapters in the first part of the book explain in more detail the 3 metabolism types, calories (End the Calorie Debate is an excellent read) and Daily Meal Planning.
Part 2 of The Diet Solution Program looks at organic food, and goes on to provide in-depth information on nutrition, covering fats, dairy, soy, grains, salt, water, sweeteners and alcohol. It provides various guides and charts covering portion size, food ratios for different metabolism types and the all important Glycemic Index Chart.
It finishes with an extensive Frequently Asked Questions section which covers subjects such as vegetarianism, sugar, exercise, supplements, lifestyle plus more on implementing the Diet Solution Program into your daily routine and lifestyle in the long-term.
It finishes with a list of references to research and other sources that the program draws on. We especially like this, as referencing scientific source material shows that this is a plan built on facts about human nutrition and not just an individuals opinion of what can work.
The Diet Solution Success Journal
This is your journal. It is 126 pages of tables and journal templates that you can use to help monitor your progress and help you stay on track. It covers:
- Starting Measurements
- Food Journal
- Daily Exercise Log
This is really something that you need to print out to allow you to work through the plan as it covers the 8 weeks that the plan lasts for.
It also encourages you to answer daily questions such as “My biggest accomplishment today” and “Lessons I learned today”.
The Diet Solution Food Shopping Guide
This is a shorter book at just 13 pages. It simply provides information on how to shop for basic healthy ingredients, ideal for you if you generally avoid the fresh fruit and vegetable section of shops. Isabel also mentions several brands that she endorses;
“I mention specific brands throughout this guide because they are the ones I have researched and found to fit the program best.”
However, she also explains how to substitute them for alternatives. There is a section on healthy bread options, information on dairy. Plus advice on nuts, fish and supplements.
The Diet Solution Recipe Guide
This is another fantastic resource, weighing in at 98 pages. Recipe sections;
- Dressings, Marinades, Seasonings, and Sauces
- Vegetable Dishes
- Poultry (Chicken, Cornish Game Hen, Turkey)
- Meat (Beef, Buffalo, Lamb, Venison, Pork, and Veal)
All of these recipes provide a health and balanced meal. Many recipes are provided by talented health chefs.
14 Days To A Sexy Body
This is a separate 14 day meal plan that you can follow. This meal plan should be combined with a daily workout. This is the basic principle of the plan:
“I have found that 1600 calories of the right food combinations to be a sufficient amount to keep most people from being hungry while simultaneously quickly burning off a lot of body fat.“
These meal plans include protein shakes so if you are exercising to get fit and speed weight loss then there is no problem with taking your whey protein supplements.
The Top 10 Most Common Nutrition Mistakes That Are Keeping You Fat
This is a short but essential book (12 pages) that provides some common mistakes. These are the types of mistakes that many people make when trying to lose weight. Often when people say ”I have tried everything to lose weight but nothing works” it is because they are making one of these mistakes.
Sugars, toxins, processed foods and carbohydrates, bad eating habits and dehydration are all covered. Some excellent advice on healthy fats and the importance of “feeding” your muscles.
Done For You Meal Plans
Another collection of meal plans, this time the core part of the diet solution program. 69 pages of meal plans to follow that will keep you and your body interested.
There is a table of allowable servings for each daily calorie target, so that you always know how much to eat for each meal and snack.
There is a list of the best food choices in each food group so you can quickly learn which is the best meat, best seafood and best seeds and nuts to eat. Tables also provide information on protein, carbohydrate and fat content of different foods.
There is a meal plan for each of the Metabolism Types so you do not have to work out for yourself what you should eat.
An example of a “mixed type” metabolism meal plan:
The Metabolism Type Test
Last but not least is the The Metabolism Type Test. You will only need this once, but it is an essential part to this diet plan. This book takes you through the test to determine your metabolic type;
“Adapted from The Metabolic Typing Diet (Wolcott and Fahey 2000, 135), this simple test is the most basic way to determine your metabolism type.”
Once again Isabel references the test so you know that this is a proper test developed by health scientists. There are 25 questions with A or B answers. You answer them all, then add up your score. The last page of the test explains what your score means in terms of your metabolic type. This is then used by you to follow the best meal plan to help you to lose weight.
The 3 Metabolic Types are:
- Protein Type
- Carb Type
- Mixed Type
The book then explains what each type means and provides general rules and strict rules for each type.

The real trick is to follow the good advice and not give into temptation.
Be Patient and Get Support for Weight Loss
Her final tips are to be patient and to not give up. Weight loss can be a long process, especially when done in a healthy way. So do not expect to lose all your weight in a month, instead make monthly goals and just stick to the plan. Also ensure that you have a support network. Support can take many forms, but sometimes the most important support from friends and family is for them to just respect that you are on a diet and not to tempt you with offering of treats!
