Overview

The Obvious Diet recognizes that the rules we make ourselves are those we are most likely to stick to. THE OBVIOUS DIET offers sound advice, suggested menus, and the encouragement of dozens of famous people who have found that Ed's diet works. Above all, it is reader-friendly and explains how to devise an eating regimen based on avoiding your own particular weaknesses, whether they are carbohydrates, animal fats, or sugar. Rather than imposing a rigid plan from on high, The Obvious Diet allows you to mix and match elements from different diets to suit your own lifestyle. If you've tried other diets over the years but found they didn't work, then this is the book for you.

Author Biography: Ed Victor is one of the world's most successful literary agents, whose many famous clients and friends include celebrities Erica Jong, Peter Jennings, and Martha Stewart, among others.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Diets come and go, but the effective ones usually demand a major change in lifestyle, which is very difficult for most of us to do. Victor's premise is that the individual is far more likely than any writer to know perfectly well what behavior is likely to cause weight gain. One person's downfall is chocolate; another's is salty chips. A third simply cannot stick to an exercise regimen. Hence the "obvious" part of the diet: make your own rules, based on what you know makes you fat. A literary agent who lost 20 pounds in three months, Victor believes that the rules we make for ourselves are the ones we stick to. He also recommends one "fasting" day each week, when one eats only fruits and vegetables. This is balanced by the "Treat Day," also once a week, when you indulge your special hungers, if only in small amounts. He also discusses the size of portions Americans are being super-sized to death! Previously published in England, this title will be promoted extensively here, so most libraries will be getting requests for it. Fortunately, it's a good addition to public libraries' diet collections. Susan B. Hagloch, Tuscarawas Cty. P.L., New Philadelphia, OH Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
