Fill up to Slim Down
The Diet That Lets You Eat All the Foods You Love and Still Lose WeightBook - 2005
Lose up to two pounds a week by filling up on the foods you love. As any dieter can attest, the downfall of most weight-loss plans is the nagging feeling of hunger that sets in after weeks of enduring strict portion control and a lack of variety in the foods you are "allowed" to eat. What's missing from nearly every diet is the most important aspect of success-satisfaction. But this doesn't simply mean gorging your stomach-satiety is about eating foods that aid digestion, help nutrient absorption, boost your metabolism, and provide the flavor and diversity that will curb your cravings. Fill Up to Slim Downincludes food charts and menu plans that will show readers how to create meals that balance high- and moderate-satiety foods-those that are high in fiber, protein, and complex carbohydrates; rich in antioxidants; and low in fat-and even allows low-satiety treats like French fries and cake! Informed by Dr. Diethrich's thirty years of clinical experience, this regimen can help dieters lose up to two pounds a week and keep their heart healthy. Popular cookbook author Jyl Steinback provides 120 recipes for the whole family, which will keep dieters on track for long-term weight loss.
