New Orleans, LA, January 05, 2010 --( Timothy S. Harlan, M.D., also known as Dr. Gourmet, today announces the launch of The Real World Diet, the newest version of his free, online diet and menu planner, available at

"I designed The Real World Diet because people need a real world alternative to silly fad diets," Dr. Harlan said. "People don't have time to cook every night and create separate meals for themselves and their kids. Working long hours, the kids' soccer practice, and lunches at your desk are barriers to eating healthy. With the features we've built into the planner, it can be easier than ever to eat healthy and lose weight. It's a plan you can live with."

Solidly grounded in evidence-based medicine, The Real World Diet online planner includes the following features:

* Personalized two week menu plans for one person or a whole family, complete with recipes and shopping lists.

* Leftovers are used for lunches and later in the week.

* Use convenience foods such as Lean Cuisine or Weight Watchers meals as alternatives to cooking.

* Track calories in and calories out with the integrated Food and Exercise Diary.

* Set goals for weight, Body Mass Index or Waist to Hip Ratio and track your progress.

* Other sites charge as much as $29.95 per month for this service, but The Real World Diet is completely free.

Along with the online planner, coaching essays help users understand Why they should eat better and How to do it. Because Dr. Gourmet recognizes that we have to live in the real world and eat real food, he has created a practical plan that's easy to make part of your life. These principles are those that research has proven time and again to help people lose weight, live longer, live better and best of all, eat great food.
