Just Tell Me What to Eat!: The Delicious 6-Week Weight Loss Plan for the Real Worldby Timothy S. Harlan
Dr. Timothy Harlan has counseled thousands of overweight patients searching for weight-loss answers. He noticed that patients were usually told what they could not eat, rather than all the wonderful foods they could eat. Now, physician-chef Harlan provides a solution: an exact prescription for what to eat, how to cook it, when to eat it, and, best of all, why eating great food is the best health decision you will make.
Just Tell Me What to Eat! is a medically based weight-loss plan for the real world, for anyone tired of dubious fad diets, restricted meals, and unappetizing strategies. It emphasizes a Mediterranean diet with high-quality calories and home cooking whenever possible. Dr. Harlan offers a "food mantra" for each day, paired with a menu and easy recipes. By the time you incorporate all the lessons in your diet, you will have naturally slimmed down and changed your eating habits for the better
With chapters like "What You Should Eat for Breakfast," "How to Arrange Your Dinner Plate," and "Carbs are Good for You Too!" this unique day-by-day plan will help even the most frustrated dieters achieve a slimmer, healthier, and happier lifestyle.
A diet plan that focuses on what you can eat, not what you can't.
Harlan (eatTHISdiet for Coumadin Users, 2008, etc.) actually tells readers exactly what to eat in this diet manual. His six-week program to achieve optimal health through diet and nutrition relies on "high quality calories" and self-prepared meals that take cues from Mediterranean cuisine. The author isn't only a board-certified internist but a trained chef as well, and the man behind the popular website DrGourmet.com. His manual is a winning, easily implemented blend of medically sound weight-loss advice and recipes for delicious, nutritious food. In each chapter, Harlan sets goals, explains what to expect and supplies readers with exact recipes and shopping lists. Clear, simple directives tell readers not only what to eat, but when, how and why. For Harlan, a self-proclaimed lover of food, taste is just as important as nutritional value. Readers may be surprised to find that the first dinner on Harlan's meal plan is Fettuccini Alfredo with Shrimp and Broccoli; pizza and dessert are on the menu as well.
Recommended for those who need meal-by-meal guidance and aren't willing to forgo their favorite foods—the perfect marriage of medical knowledge and gourmet cooking.
