The Diet Smart Plan is a weight loss plan developed in 2005 that is also the name of the book released the same year. The subtitle to the book, Small Changes for Big Results, is a summary of the idea that this weight loss plan asks participants to make a few strategic changes to their normal dietary habits rather than a complete overhaul of a dieters daily menu. The premise of The Diet Smart Plan is that awareness of eating habits will alter behavior and thus promote weight loss and future weight management rather than continued poor eating habits. The Diet Smart Plan Diet Smart Plan  

plan is a calorie conscious plan that asks participants to eat at least five times a day and weigh in twice a day to achieve weight loss gradually rather than promising short term results that often lead to drastic measures or frustration.

The Plan is most commonly known for the diet strategies and tips that participants adopt in an effort to overcome the pitfalls that usually derail weight loss efforts. Some of these strategies include "the blind arm strategy" where low-calorie snacks are made accessible in areas such as pantries and higher-calorie junk food are made less accessible and "counting your chips" where participants separate tortilla chips from a community basket in a Mexican restaurant to ensure that participants stop eating at one serving.
