Overview

As you'll quickly see, this is not just a diet book, but much more. It's a resource for how to develop a healthier lifestyle in several areas, from the viewpoint of a cardiologist.

Stephen Sinatra, M.D., will show you how Roger Buffaloe lost over 200 pounds. He'll not only show you how to lose weight, eat healthier and live longer, he will also educate you on the effect of foods on the heart and body.

Based on the effects he's seen in his own life and the lives of his patients, Dr. Sinatra offers simple techniques to reach your personal weight loss and nutritional goals. He shares not just which foods to eat, but his own personal recipes for food preparation. "Healthy food is a cardinal ingredient in preventive medicine," Sinatra explains.

And through the entire process, his motto is "no deprivation and no loss of pleasure."

"This book is not limited to dieting and deprivation, but on nurturing the body with nutritional and emotional healing. Lose to Win supports a weight-reduction process in which the individual opens doors to creativity and aliveness."
