Sonja Bakker Diet - the famous Dutch Weight Loss Diet (English Version)
The Sonja Bakker weight loss diet has gained its fame since 2005 in the Netherlands. This program has helped many people in losing weight as well as changing their lifestyle/ eating habit to maintain their weight. I've witness several friends of mine who has gone through the program and has lost quite a proportion of their weight. I myself have done a 2-week cycle and lost 3 kg from there, got back 1 kg since then. :)
Background about Sonja Bakker
Sonja Bakker studied nutrition and she started her own weight consultant practice in the Netherlands, developed her own diet method back in 1997.
Sonja Bakker has
published her first book in 2005, and since then she published several other
books which all reached the top 10 best-selling books in the Netherlands. She also has her own
‘Sonja Bakker’ magazine, a television show helping people to deal with weight
problem, and an online weight loss program.
Her popularity can be reflected by the fact that her name is included in Dutch Dictionary, in which 'are you doing Sonja Bakker?' colloquially means 'are you on diet?
Basic Concept of the Sonja Bakker Diet
One of the key points to the success of Sonja Bakker's diet, is that she incorporated a lot of common snacks and ingredients that Dutch would used in daily menu. Her program provides systematic weekly menu including what to take exactly for snacks.
Ingredients and products mentioned in the menu are customized to products which you can find easily in local Dutch supermarkets. Yet, I'd still like to share the recipe in English and give suggestions to the closest products that you can find worldwide as possible, hopefully you can also follow the diet menu with products from your local supermarket.

Effective Weight Loss in 4-6 Weeks
Another key characteristic of Sonja Bakker's diet is that you can eat quite a lot throughout your day, yet strictly limited to her menu. You can still have snacks during the day, 3 meals, INCLUDING dessert, which indeed is very suitable for people who can't resist to put food in their mouth regularly…
Exercising is recommended to go parallel with the diet (like every other diet of course), while ample of water in-take is also crucial for diet takers.
It is suggested that one can have around 5 - 10 kg lost in 4 to 6 weeks when following this diet. You can also tailor-made your own program and follow for 2 weeks, and then get back on when you feel like it.
