MEMPHIS, Tenn. (FOX13) – -

Celebrity Chef Rocco Dispirito highlights a new, cutting edge weight regimen.

In his latest book, "The Pound A Day Diet," he says he designed a program to help dieters lose up to five pounds in five days.

The best-selling author discussed the diet plan and how you can lose weight enjoying your favorite foods.

"So let me show you what eight-hundred-fiftycalories looks like. This is how we start. On this particular day on my twenty-eight day plan it's a breakfast smoothie, it's a chocolate smoothie that tastes amazing. It tastes like the best chocolate milk you've ever had. It's got thirty grams of protein in it. eleven grams of fiber, and fiber of course gets your metabolic engine working really hard. So the first thing in the morning, look at that, this is the real recipe from the book. It's got egg white powder in there for protein, lots of fiber, lots of cocoa powder which is rich in protein and fiber. And then additionally for breakfast on this particular day, half a grapefruit with monk fruit sugar which is calorie free. And then you want to eat every two to three hours, that's called metabolic fasting. So when you combine calorie deficit, and metabolic fasting, which is the opposite of fasting, which is not eating, not eating causes weight gain. Metabolic fasting is eating fewer calories, much fewer calories, but more frequently. So about two to three hours later on this particular day you get a handful of super popcorn. And then lunch. A big burger and then chips. This is from my book, these are the actual recipes. It's a four ounce patty, of extra lean meat, and barbecue potato chips that you make in the microwave from white sweet potato. Then about two and a half hours later it's a green monkey. I call it a monkey because it's surprising like a monkey because it's doesn't taste like a green juice. It actually has a really pleasant lightly sweet flavor. And then for dinner these two chicken enchiladas are only 225 calories. They would normally be about five-hundred-thirty. And then of course desert. Because this is diet without deprivation. And only a chef could figure that out. All diet books are written by doctors and trainers, they know nothing about making food taste good, and that's the reason people don't stick with diets and that's because the food isn't fun. You don't swoon when you eat the food. You don't feel good. The brain chemistry that changes when you eat junk food doesn't happen when you eat diet food but it will with this food because it's delicious.  This is chocolate with chocolate sauce and strawberries and this is southern style sweet tea.  So let me give you a before and after here. If you bought these foods at the store or you made them yourself with a traditional recipe, three-thousand-six-hundred-sixty-one calories. My version, eight-seventy-two. Big difference right," Dispirito said.

Dispirito's book, "The Pound A Day Diet" is available now where books are sold.
