More About This Book

Overview

Following arthroscopic surgery on his right knee in 2006, Jerry Sorlucco faced a choice: Lose weight, or eventually face artificial knee replacements for both knees. His orthopaedic surgeon laid it on the line. At age 69 and 270 pounds, his knees simply weren't going to last much longer; they would continue to break down under the pounding of all that weight. To avoid the knife he would have to lose about a hundred pounds. A feat none of his patients had, so far, achieved in his many years of practice. So, as with many others, the surgeon began to mentally prepare Jerry for the latest and greatest artificial parts that lay in his future. Or so he thought.

Breaking the mold, Jerry made one of the most important decisions of his life. Instead of accepting his surgeon's vision of his future, he decided instead to change his manner of living in order to lose weight. And lose weight he did, shrinking from 270 pounds to 168 in somewhat under two years. This is the story of how he did it without feeling deprived of anything, including the martini or two that he enjoys in the evening.

True to his style, The Two Martine Diet is not your typical diet book. Jerry reaches out to the more than 60 million Americans, and 300 million people worldwide, who suffer from obesity, and offers them hope and an example of how they, too, can change their life around. Using his research and writing skill he lays out the dangers of our western diet, and the values of eating healthy foods and of physical activity and exercise. While the book is technically correct, Jerry isn't a scientist. Consequently, it's written in layman's language and easy to understand.

    Answered my diet questions and keeps me motivated!

    I needed to loose weight and my Doctor and Gym weren't able to answer all my questions. I needed to understand WHY I had to do things to achieve weight loss results. That is what this book delivers. Mr. Sorlucco gives you the scientific background, documents his sources, and then helps you create a weight loss and exercise program that works for the individual. I loved the different diet pyramids for different nationalities. It really helps me with my food choices no matter where I eat. I also appreciate the advice he gives which leads me to free support web sites, instead of thoes web sites that are scams or cost a monthly fee. I am now working out wisely on a regular basis, eating a healthy diet without suffering, and losing weight. Thanks Jerry!

    Inspiring

    The author documents his astounding weight loss while giving us good, practical information on how we can all lose weight without too much sacrifice. No food or beverage is prohibited, but portion control, healthy food choices, and exercise is stressed. It's a no-nonsense, practical approach to eating and controlling your weight for the rest of your life! Highly recommended.
