We're a nation on the go—and we're gaining weight at alarming levels. Chances are you realize you should lose weight and eat healthier foods, but when you're hungry and hurried, all too often you choose the drive-through over a healthy home-cooked meal. This breakthrough guide presents a practical, real-world solution that teaches you how to make healthier fast-food choices and save hundreds of calories per meal—without giving up the delicious taste and convenience of fast foods.

In addition to tips for dining guilt-free at all types of fast-food restaurants, The Fast Food Diet includes:

* A Six-Week Fast-Food Diet Eating Plan that lets you choose among 150 meal selections for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks from more than fifty of the most popular fast-food chains

* Valuable tips for business travelers, holiday revelers, and kids who are fast-food junkies

* Advice on eating well at food courts, sit-down restaurants, airports, and convenience stores

* Recipes for nutritious, home-cooked meals you can prepare in 15 minutes or less

If you cut just 500 calories from your meals every day, you'll lose a pound a week. That's 50 pounds a year—and The Fast Food Diet makes it easy.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Eat super-sized fries, lose weight, and prevent disease? Not exactly. As cardiologist and nutritionist Sinatra (former chief of cardiology & director of medical education, Manchester Memorial Hosp.; Optimum Health: A Natural Lifesaving Prescription for Your Body and Mind) and Punkre (chief copywriter, Rodale Press) explain, their approach to weight loss is actually quite sensible: greatly decrease caloric intake by making healthier, more nutritious choices at fast food restaurants (fast food consumption should be limited to 20 percent of the daily diet) and increase activity with a 10,000-steps-a-day exercise regimen. The book includes an invaluable chapter listing the calorie and fat content of the offerings at the most popular food chains as well as a suggested meal plan for weight loss that incorporates fast food. Also useful is the chapter on vitamin and mineral supplementation. Michael F. Jacobson and Sarah Fritschner's The Fast-Food Guide covered similar ground but is now outdated. Recommended purchase for public libraries and for academic libraries serving colleges with courses in nutrition. Florence Scarinci, Nassau Community Coll.
