Overview

When it comes to diets, Americans want two things: ease of use and results. The Diet Detective’s

All-American Diet gives readers exactly what they need to lose weight without recipes, cooking, or calorie counting. Diet Detective Charles Platkin has done all the complicated nutrition math in advance, so readers merely pick and choose their meal plan from thousands of photos of regular foods available at their local stores and favorite chain restaurants.

 

Significantly less expensive, more accessible, and infinitely more practical than convenience eating

programs like Jenny Craig or NutriSystem, The Diet Detective’s All-American Diet operates according to the same proven principles of portion control, behavior change, and proper nutrition for effective weight loss. The book gives readers a mix-and-match, Build-a-Meal program that shows them how to pick their breakfast, lunch, dinner, or snack from lists of thousands of popular brand-name foods available anywhere. It’s that simple: Readers can simply go to the supermarket and start shedding pounds.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Perhaps this volume could be subtitled "Food for Dummies": Platkin has gone to the chain restaurants and bought the precooked supermarket food we can't seem to do without. He lists the exact calorie counts for foods commonly found in these places. He examines 22 popular restaurants and a wide variety of frozen meals and analyzes individual servings for calorie count, sodium content, and vegetarian-friendliness. These foods are then subdivided so that the reader can choose a 300-calorie breakfast entrée, a 400-calorie lunch entrée, or a 500-calorie dinner entrée, along with snacks and sides. This will be handy for citizens of the fast-food nation, but the information provided here is limited, and the fact remains that there are better ways to eat.
