Hamptons Diet – Diet Review – Pros and Cons


The Hamptons Diet: Lose Weight Quickly and Safely with Delicious Meal Plans from Doctors is a popular low-carb diet created by Dr. Fred Pescatore MD, former medical director of the Atkins Center. The diet is essentially a low-carb version of the Mediterranean. It puts an emphasis on quality protein like fish, organic unprocessed carbohydrates, and fats that are high in omega 3 fatty acids. A typical meal might include fresh grilled salmon, with sautéed organic spinach, a glass of wine, and some fresh fruit like dessert. There are plenty of diet hacks out there, as the subtitle is “Diet Secrets of the Rich, Famous, and Thin.” The truth is that there is no “secret” to being skinny and the claim that the rich have it. , is iffy at best.


  • Healthy: The diet recommends fresh organic foods and discourages packaged processed foods.
  • You’ll lose weight: Following such a weight loss strategy will likely result in weight loss… as long as you stay on the program.


  • Expensive – all those organic salmon fillets and vegetables will add to your grocery bills. Perhaps the “secret” of the rich is that they can afford such a healthy lifestyle.
  • Lack of real-world applicability: This diet is difficult if you eat out, travel, have kids, or attend social functions…

Bottom line

It’s basically another low-carb diet, which is much healthier and doable than the Atkins program, but still likely to be too strict and unsustainable for most people in the long run. What works long-term is a balanced diet that incorporates all food groups and emphasizes portion control along with moderate exercise.
