Overview

The facts: "Low-fat" and fat-free" processed foods are a major contributor to America's weight problem. Gimmicky calorie-counting diets leave you feeling hungry. Yo-yo dieting is devastating to your body. And strict dietary regimens never, ever last. Now, the world's premiere name in health and nutrition introduces a scientifically proven strategy for losing 2 to 7 pounds a week—and keeping it off. "If you focus on selecting foods with low calorie density, and worry less about how much of them you're eating," says Robert Pritikin, "you'll lose weight without ever feeling hungry—and you'll look and feel great. That's the key to the success of the calorie-density solution." To date, this revolutionary approach has only been available to participants in Pritikin Longevity Center programs. Now, you can put all the experts of the Pritikin Center to work for you. Includes charts of calorie-density levels in common foods. Provides more than 50 delicious recipes and an array of easy-to-follow menu plans. Debunks popular fad diets.

Robert Pritikin is the director of the Pritikin Longevity Center and directs a staff of highly acclaimed nutritionists and research scientists. He is one of the country's most sought-after speakers on health, nutrition, and fitness.

Read an Excerpt

Get ready to change your ideas about weight loss. Those of you who believe that weight loss has to include hunger—that you have to starve yourself in order to lose a few pounds—are about to learn otherwise. Those who believe that you have to eat a lot of high-protein foods, loaded with fat and cholesterol, in order to lose weight are about to be disabused of such a belief. Those who think that a whole array of low-fat foods—including such stalwarts as popcorn and whole-grain breakfast cereals—are good for weight loss are about to be disillusioned. And, those who believe that the most effective weight loss programs are highly restrictive and impossible to sustain are about to be pleasantly surprised. As I say, many of your ideas about weight are going to change.

I finally understand why I haven't been able to lose weight even though I have eaten all the non-fat foods invented. Calorie density is so easy but so powerful. You have to read about.
