Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Contrary to what the title might imply (snowbirds are the white-skinned and pudgy northerners who fly south at the first sign of frost), this diet is not a seven-day vacation wonder; rather it is a serious weight-loss regimen. Developed by the doctors at the Southwest Bariatric Nutrition Center, the diet works on a 12-day cycle. Appetizing meals are its main attraction: crabmeat, salad with rice, caviar consomme, swordfish en moutarde, chicken broth with escaroleall totalling less than 1000 calories per day. The shopping lists are immense, though, and the recipes, while mouthwatering, are not inexpensive to prepare. As any serious dieter knows, cutting calories is only the beginningone should exercise and make a commitment to changing certain habits. With that in mind, this book may be more useful to dieters on other plans who are hankering for gourmet recipes. (February)
Library Journal
The author, medical director of the Southwest Bariatric Nutrition Center in Scottsdale, Arizona, calls this diet a lifetime weight-management plan using a balanced diet, regular aerobic exercise, stress management, and lifestyle adjustment. He provides basic menus and recipes for 12 days, plus a 12-day emergency diet. There is emphasis on drinking lots of water; on reducing the amount of blood insulin, which the author claims will help with weight loss; and on the importance of exercise for maintaining weight loss. The appealing recipesincluding such entrees as smoked-salmon omelet and veal chops with a salsa of peppersare similar to those in E. Joan Barice's The Palm Beach Long-Life Diet ( LJ 1/85). A good basic diet plan well presented. Susan E. Holmer, Peninsula Lib. System, San Mateo, Cal.
