Overview

For millions of us, reunions - whether a milestone high school reunion or extended-family get-together - offer a wake-up call and the chance to check in with friends, relatives, and long-lost loves we once knew well. For many, they also shore up weight-loss motivation. In fact, some of us are only interested in losing weight when we've got a major event like a reunion on the horizon.

In The Reunion Diet, board-certified sports nutritionist Lisa Dorfman and health and nutrition writer Sandra J. Gordon offer a practical, self-help guide showing readers how to set specific weight-loss and other lifestyle goals and achieve them within the time allowed. At the core of the book is a diet plan that is calibrated by calorie levels according to how much time readers have to lose weight before their reunion.

The book also includes a last-minute diet plan for those who may be reading the book without much time remaining before their reunion. Whether you've got 10, 20, 30 pounds or more to lose before your reunion, The Reunion Diet can help you look and feel great when mingling and reconnecting with those you may not have seen in decades.
