Celebrity chef Rocco DiSpirito knows how to whip up wonderful meals. But he's also become an expert at crafting recipes designed to tantalize your taste buds while helping you win at weight loss, combining them with a diet that celebrities are championing, reported Voxxi on July 18.

Rocco says that the diet helped him lose more than 50 pounds. Among the stars who are using his weight loss plan is Whoopi Goldberg, who recently told Dr. Mehmet Oz that she used it to shed 30 pounds.

Entitled "The Pound a Day Diet: Lose Up to 5 Pounds in 5 Days by Eating the Foods You Love," the book combines Mediterranean-style eating with low carb guidelines. Rocco feels that the fact that he's a chef gives him a unique edge on weight loss.

"It’s a chef’s point of view that’s been missing in the world of health," declared Rocco. "I am surrounded by the most delicious food available on the planet every day of my life. And if I can do it, anyone can do it."

During the first phase of the plan, dieters consume 850 calories on weekdays and 1,200 calories per day on Saturday and Sunday. The second phase provides a more lenient weight loss plan.
