Uncle Sam Diet: The 4-Week Eating Plan for a Thinner, Healthier America

Overview

Americans have spent millions on fad diet books trying to lose weight or just eat better. We've tried low fat. We switched to low-carbs. And it hasn't worked. And we may have risked illness and gotten fatter in the process. Despite all the promises of the diet bestsellers, two out of every three of us are overweight or obese.

Overview

Americans have spent millions on fad diet books trying to lose weight or just eat better. We've tried low fat. We switched to low-carbs. And it hasn't worked. And we may have risked illness and gotten fatter in the process. Despite all the promises of the diet bestsellers, two out of every three of us are overweight or obese. Even normal weight people have a hard time eating right. But there is hope - and real help.

The UNCLE SAM DIET is based on the new 2005 US Dietary Guidelines for Americans. Based on solid science, it's an eating style that you can stay with and thrive on. No gimmicks here, and no fads. Dr. Keith Ayoob, a registered dietitian and associate professor at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York, uses the USDA's new dietary guidelines to design an eating plan based on good, wholesome foods. It's simple…it's safe…and it works!

Lots of good foods—from all food groups-so you never feel hungry.Weekly menus for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks-you can even have a latte or two!Huge, hungry man's servings of vegetables and fruits-every dayDelicious whole grains-muffins, breads, bagels and moreNutritious snacks for hunger attacksGot kids? Great! These guidelines are good for anyone age 2 and older. So take your kids along on the trip to better eating. (They'll probably enjoy it too!)

The new Dietary Guidelines are chock-full of great changes for you and your family. Dr. Ayoob takes the nutrition-ese out of the government's gobbledygook and gives you meal plans and recipes that are easy to use and delicious. The result? This Uncle Sam is here to stay.

"Obesity is a disease of excess-excess calories and excess sedentary activities. The cure is to balance calories in with calories out."-Keith Ayoob (quoted in IFIC, Food Insight, March/April 2003)
