Overview

The trusted diet and nutrition experts at Good Housekeeping present a groundbreaking way to navigate the supermarket aisles for weight loss—and achieve long-lasting success.
Real food for real folks—and real weight loss that you’ll be able to maintain. And it’s all as easy as going to your local supermarket and picking up ordinary packaged convenience foods. Diets are among Good Housekeeping’s most popular features, and now the magazine has created a diet revolution that everyone will want to join. Here, you will learn how to read food labels to eat healthy, shop for packaged foods that won’t sabotage a diet, and stick to a healthy balanced menu that is low in calories, high in fiber, and moderate in carbs, fats, and protein. With advice on things like dieting when your family isn’t, the secrets of successful weight-loss winners, and stocking the kitchen wisely, you’re set up for sensible weight loss, as well as a lifetime of healthy eating!

Why you will love this diet:

* It’s inexpensive and easy: the food is affordable and most meal preparation takes less than 20 minutes.
* It’s flexible: you can choose from an enormous variety of foods.
* It’s forgiving: you can have chocolate, alcohol, and other treats without feeling like you’ve blown it. There’s even a Calorie Counter with 125-calorie snacks to satisfy cravings

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
These two books both educate consumers about food labels, but only one is strictly a diet book. A former health columnist for the Los Angeles Times, nutritionist Ursell (fellow, Royal Soc. of Health) explains all the tricks to reading and understanding food labels and breaks down the U.S. government agencies and their authority in food manufacturing. Did you know, for instance, that the FDA considers irradiation a food additive that must be declared on the ingredients list? Or that durability indications (i.e., "best before" dates) are not required by law except for milk and eggs? Ursell covers children's food and organic food as well and even explains symbols and logos such as "Fair Trade" and "Dolphin Safe." Nutritionist Jibrin (The Unofficial Guide to Dieting Safely) maintains that cooking quick-and-easy meals at home is the key to losing weight and keeping it off. Though she devotes an entire chapter to not being "duped" by food labels, this is a diet book with sample menus and basic recipes tested by Good Housekeeping. The diet begins with a two-week "Boot Camp" that is supposed to help readers lose three to five pounds and leads up to "Keep on Losin'" and "Keeping It Off" programs for maintenance after weight loss. Helpful "Super Tips" such as opting for fiber, nuts, and "good fats" are interspersed throughout. Jibrin's book is well written and practical, and Ursell's is easy to read, small, inexpensive, and could easily be carried to the supermarket to help consumers purchase healthy foods. Both are recommended for all libraries.-Carla McLean, Kent Regional Lib., King Cty. Lib. Syst., WA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

    Finally, A Diet Book For Real People

    The best thing about this book is that it has both feet firmly planted on Earth, where most of us live. Other diet books assume that we have all the time in the world to plan menus and select the makings of wonderfully healthful anti-oxidizing metabolically friendly dishes. And that money is no object in the pursuit of sveltness. Janis Jibrin knows better and has written a clear, practical guide that anyone can follow. There's zero hype in here. The advice is pragmatic and founded in good science. The recipes are simple and fast. This is a book for all Earthling dieters.
