Originally published in 2008 in hardcover, Dr. Susan Roberts's groundbreaking Instinct Diet was universally praised as superb. From Jane E. Brody in The New York Times: "Perhaps the most comprehensive approach to eating for effective weight control." From Women's World: "Obesity cure!" From world-class nutritional researchers and scientists: "A real paradigm shift;" "wise guidance along the road to long-term weight management;" "an honest, straightforward and helpful guide." And not to mention from Harvard's Henry Louis Gates Jr., who recommends the book to "anyone who has struggled with weight gain or obesity, and has given up hope. This diet will change their life."
Now in paperback, featuring a new chapter highlighting success stories, with before and after photos, The "I" Diet is the only diet that helps us control the controls. The diet that's easy to follow; the diet that's based on impeccable laboratory research; the diet where the dieter never goes hungry; the diet that is unequivocably healthy, thoroughly grounded in the metabolic, genetic, and psychological workings of the human body. Through its focus on delicious, deeply satisfying dishes like Orange Crumbed French Toast, Grilled Pork Tenderloin, Thai Chicken Salad with Warm Peanut Sauce, and Chocolate Bread Pudding, and proven behavioral modifications (Dr. Roberts is a professor of nutrition and a professor of psychiatry), the diet is a fat-burning marvel. Read it and find out for yourself how the dieters on the cover lost 30 pounds on average in a few short months.

I hate dieting and have never been able to stick to a diet for more than a few days. I always get overwhelmed and frustrated, giving up and swearing I'll never do it again. Also, I'm starving! So The I Diet is a great starting point if you are trying to lose weight and trying to understand the science behind it all. Then, when you are ready to jump start your weight loss, do what I did. After decades of yo-yo dieting and failure, I lost 11 pounds using The Hungry Chick Dieting Solution. The Hungry Chick Dieting Solution is probably the best way that I have ever seen to lose weight. I will not lie, I have been so happy with the results that I have been trying to read everything that I can to keep this weight off. My whole family noticed over the summer. You just don’t know how good this new me feels. So when you are ready, start with The I diet and finish with The Hungry Chick Dieting Solution and watch for the results.
