Overview

By now, you’ve heard of (and maybe tried) them all: the low-carb diet, the grapefruit diet, the miracle diet . . . the list goes on and on. Fad diets may promise a quick fix, but few deliver lasting results. If you’re like millions of other Americans, you’re still struggling to lose weight and get in shape—without harming your long-term health in the process.

It’s time to leave behind the one-size-fits-all approach to dieting. Now, the American Heart Association, the nation’s most trusted authority on heart-healthy living, introduces its first-ever comprehensive weight-loss book. No-Fad Diet helps you create a personalized plan to lose weight in a healthful way. After a simple assessment of your current habits, you choose the eating and exercise strategies that best fit your needs. You’ll learn how to set realistic goals, eat well to lose extra pounds safely, and add physical activity to keep the weight off for good.

This book offers more than 190 delicious, all-new recipes, including Cream of Triple-Mushroom Soup, Tilapia Cham-pignon, Chicken Pot Pie, Pumpkin-Cranberry Pancakes, and Vanilla Soufflé with Brandy-Plum Sauce. You’ll also find two weeks of sample menus, guidelines for meal planning, useful tips on dining out and food shopping, and sound advice for staying on track to reach your target weight.

If you’re fed up with fads and want a diet that can provide a lifetime of effective weight control, No-Fad Diet is the book for you.

Tired of losing weight and gaining it back?

Sick of fad diets and gimmicks?

Frustrated by crazy food restrictions?

Try the No-Fad Diet

What’s the only effective way to lose weight and keep it off? It’s simple: Calories in must be less than calories out. But since the factors that contribute to this not-so-magic formula are different for everyone, a one-size diet plan does not fit all.

The No-Fad Diet includes:

•Tips on turning negative thinking into positive rewards

•Simple quizzes to find the approach that’s best for you

•Diary pages to record and monitor your eating and activity habits

•Strategies to reduce calories and increase your activity levels

•Guidelines to help you prepare your own nutritious meals

•More than 190 delicious and healthful recipes

•Techniques to maintain your momentum

The weight-loss strategies in this book are based on reliable scientific research and are backed by respected medical professionals. The American Heart Association has the information you can trust.

Tilapia and Spinach Roll-ups with Shallot and White Wine Sauce

Serves 4; 3 ounces fish per serving

Mild-flavored tilapia, which blends so nicely with other foods, is complemented here with baby spinach leaves and a topping of crushed walnuts.

Ingredients
4 tilapia fillets (about 4 ounces each)
1/4 teaspoon salt
Pepper to taste
5 ounces fresh baby spinach leaves
1/2 cup shredded or grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup dry white wine (regular or nonalcoholic), plus more as needed
1/2 cup fat-free, low-sodium chicken broth or low-sodium vegetable broth, plus more as needed
1 medium shallot, minced
2 tablespoons walnuts, crushed

To Prepare

Preheat the oven to 375°F.

Rinse the tilapia and pat dry with paper towels. Place the fish on a flat surface. Sprinkle the fish with the salt and pepper. Place the spinach on the fish. Sprinkle with the Parmesan. Starting at a short end, roll each fillet jelly-roll style. Secure each roll-up with a wooden toothpick. Place the fillets in a glass 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking dish.

Pour the wine and broth over the fish, using enough liquid to fill the dish to a depth of about 1/2 inch.

Sprinkle the shallot over the fish.

Bake, covered, for 30 minutes, or until the fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.

To serve, using a slotted pancake turner, transfer the roll-ups to plates. Sprinkle with the walnuts.

    Highly sensible

    The AHA No-Fad Diet, like what it says is just that - a no-fad diet. This diet is recommended for people with cardiovascular diseases and heart issues, and is promoted by the American Heart Association. it is not necessarily, however, that sensible for people with what are considered 'limiting conditions' such as diabetes. (For those, consult with the American Diabetic Association (ADA). they can offer suggestions for what to do for the diabetic condition.) For people with heart issues, including cardiovascular disease and histories of heart attacks, this is a fully sensible approach that offers quality, tasteful foods to help reduce your risks of furthering your cardiac conditions by losing unnecessary weight, reducing sodium intakes, and still having delicious and enjoyable foods, wthout all the unnecessary additives, such as gluttenous amounts of butter, margarine, oil, and the like. So eat, be happy, get healthier, feel better. This book is definitely a plus for those looking for a great approach to healthier eating habits, both with the cardiac disease and without.

    The AHA Diet is a Fad Diet

    The AHA Diet is a Fad Diet that's been around decades and still diabetes and obseity continues to rise. You are better off with the Doctor's diet which is not a fad, but a working reality created by a cardioligist (SBD). The ADA Fad diet book is CORRECT about the saturated fats and transfats, but incorrect about the high carb starches.
