The Doctor's Quick Weight Loss Diet (The Stillman Diet) was created by Irwin Maxwell Stillman, M.D. in 1967. It's an early form of the high-protein and low-carbohydrate diets. It differs from low-carbohydrate diets such as the Atkins Plan in that it is also a low-fat diet.
The diet includes lean beef, veal, chicken, turkey and fish. Eggs and non-fat cottage cheese are also included as are spices, tabasco sauce, herbs, salt, and pepper. Condiments, butter, dressings and any kind of fat or oil are not permitted. Tea, coffee, and non-caloric soft drinks can be consumed, but only in addition to the 8 daily glasses of water required. It's also recommended that dieters eat 6 small meals per day instead of 3 large ones.
