The Quick & Clean Diet: Lose the Weight, Feel Great, and Stay Lean for Life by Dari Alexander

          By applying the principles of clean eating to a realistic lifestyle, top journalist and working mom, Dari Alexander shows how you can achieve your best body and keep that promise to yourself: to finally look like that gorgeous person you know exists. Changing your mindset and consuming foods closest to their natural state change the way you feel everyday—this back-to-basics, no-nonsense, weight loss and maintenance program will not only make you thinner, it will also increase your energy. Most importantly, it promotes life-long good health. 
           The Quick & Clean Diet is all about whole grains, lean proteins, and good fats. It shuns pre-packaged, heavily processed, refined, and fast foods. It’s not about eating only low-carb, nor about going fat free. It’s about good fats. Expect to eat plenty of chicken, turkey, and fish—even lobster or tofu if you choose. You will also get an endless choice of vegetables, and a plethora of spices. Your food will never taste boring, nor will you feel deprived; in fact, expect to eat a lot.

            Three levels form the basis of the diet—for each of which, the book provides delicious recipes and exercise suggestions. The High Motivation segment is the rapid weight loss phase, a time designed to whip you into shape, kill your cravings, and shrink your stomach. Within about three days, you will feel unstoppable. The Grounding segment is where you continue to lose weight while reintroducing a wider variety of foods. And finally the Stability segment will become your roadmap for eating well for the rest of your life.

With all of the things that could affect our health, this book is a much needed addition to my life. I recently lost ten pounds  using "The Hungry Chick Dieting Solution" and I am trying to keep it going. So far so good.

Very simple and clear, healthy, sensible diet and cookbook. Highly recommended. Can't go wrong. And it's quite beautiful actually.

While the information contained in this book does seem like "nothing new", I think the day-by-day (14 day) menu planner with recipes is very easy to follow.  I had great success using it, and was happy with the results.

Awful, there is absolutely nothing new here. What a waste of money. She spends most of the book describing fruit, vegetables, and spices--information on can obtain on the Internet if one wishes to be that bored. The recipes are meh.
