Eating Free: The Carb-Friendly Way to Lose Inches, Embrace Your Hunger, and Keep Weight Off for Good

Eating Free: The Carb-Friendly Way to Lose Inches, Embrace Your Hunger, and Keep Weight Off for Good
  • Developed by nationally recognized, award-winning dietitian Manuel Villacorta

  • Manuel Villacorta “Eating Free works because it's a scientific solution which targets a complete set of lifestyle factors, not just calories and exercise. What's more, Eating Free will show you why a little-known hormone, ghrelin, can wreak havoc on your waistline and sabotage your efforts, and why almost everything you think you know about weight loss is wrong!”

The Eating Free Difference

“My book gives you the solutions you need to lose weight and keep it off, all while enjoying food again!”

If you are sick of yo-yo dieting and overly restrictive diets that limit carbs, or if you're stuck in a diet plateau, Eating Free can give you back the food and the life you love—while still helping you to lose weight. To date, 2,000 men and women have transformed themselves on the Eating Free program—with an 84% success rate of weight loss maintenance. Other diets, on average, have an 85% failure rate.

Eating Free reveals why a little-known hormone, ghrelin, is wreaking havoc on your waistline; why almost everything you think you know about weight loss is wrong; and why what most Americans do in earnest to lose weight actually creates the Perfect Storm for them to gain weight!

Eating Free sets the record straight on these common myths, and many, many more.

Myth 1: Exercise Is Critical for Success.

Exercise is important for health, but not as critical for weight loss. You don't need to spend hours exercising. Eating Free offers a realistic alternative to the gym-rat mantra by proving that weight loss is 80% nutrition and only 20% exercise. What’s more, since exercise causes ghrelin levels to spike, hitting the gym may be more detrimental than hitting your snooze button.

Myth #2: You Need to Cut Out Carbs.

With Villacorta’s formula for optimal weight loss—45% carbohydrate, 30% protein, and 25% fat—you will satiate your appetite by controlling the hunger hormone ghrelin and prevent muscle breakdown.

Myth #3: You Need to Track Your Weight Progress Daily.

Instead of obsessing over what the scale reads each morning, you'll learn why it's more effective to gauge your body's needs in weekly increments. With a free online tool, The Free Q, you can score every lifestyle element that impacts your weight loss, including lots of stress and little sleep. This tool helps you live wisely for weight loss each week. No other program demonstrates how these elements play a critical role in weight loss with a free practical tool.

Key Features:

  • Eating Free presents a balance approach program based on scientific findings. This program presents a holistic solution that relates weight loss to a complete set of lifestyle factors, including elements like sleep and stress management.

  • Only Eating Free offers The FreeQ. The FreeQ is a dynamic online tool that lets you score every lifestyle element that impacts weight loss at a given moment in time. The tool helps you learn not just what and how much to eat, but how to live wisely for weight loss in everything from hydration to relaxation. No other program demonstrates how these elements play a critical role in weight loss, or illustrate that point with a practical tool.

  • Eating Free is the only program that applies the 80/20 principle for weight loss. The biggest myth surrounding weight loss is that exercise is a critical component for success, which is simply not true. The 80/20 principle teaches you to focus on food, preparation, and planning rather than exercise.

  • Eating Free offers a free online tool for application of the book’s teachings. The free online food tracking tool and the companion smart phone application are provided to all our readers. Review daily and weekly intake, take pictures of meals, write reminder notes, and submit valuable information to your main Eating Free account. It’s a simple and practical way to stay on track with weight management goals while you’re on the road, in town, or out of the country.

  • Eating Free provides high levels of customization. Using the information in the book and the online tracking tool, you’ll get a customized meal plan based on your own metabolism and exercise habits. While most diets make general recommendations, Eating Free never assumes that everyone is equal.

  • Only Eating Free advocates the 45-30-25 eating plan. This formula controls appetite by controlling the hunger hormone, Ghrelin, prevents muscle breakdown and keeps you energize.

  • Eating Free encourages more eating options, not less. We do not demonize food or punish you for feeling hungry. We’ll teach you to eat what you like, celebrate the enjoyment of food and the ritual of eating. It’s a sustainable approach that focuses on long-term weight management rather than short-term gains.
