From the bestselling author of Get With the Program!
and Bob Greene's Total Body Makeover comes The
Best Life Diet, a lifetime plan for losing weight and
keeping it off. Bob Greene helped Oprah achieve her dramatic
weight loss, and he can help you too. You'll eat the same
delicious food that Oprah enjoys, and, just like Oprah,
you'll have Bob to encourage you at every step. Unlike a
celebrity, however, you don't need to hire a staff of
experts to aid and advise you, because Bob's plan, easily
tailored to an array of tastes, lifestyles, and activity
levels, acts as your personal trainer and private
nutritionist. Just open the book and let Bob help you get
started down the path toward your best possible life.
What sets Bob apart from all the other experts who claim
to have plans that work is that he admits that weight loss
is difficult: seventeen years of watching people struggle to
lose weight on a seemingly endless string of trendy crash
diets, only to backslide and regain the pounds they've shed,
have taught him that dropping pounds is not simply a numbers
game. By acknowledging that it is not simple laziness but a
complicated web of social rituals, cultural expectations,
and habits that drives people to gain weight, Greene is able
to attack the problem of weight loss realistically and offer
not a short-lived, quick-fix formula, but a long-term
program that accounts for the challenges and constraints of
the real world.
Divided into three phases, The Best
Life Diet gives you the tools you need to change your
life. In each phase, you'll be asked to reexamine the
decisions you make on a daily basis and gradually alter your
habits to achieve lasting results. The book also includes
easy-to-follow meal plans that make it simple to meet your
daily energy and nutrient requirements, whether you are on
the run and breakfast means a quick smoothie or you have
time to shop for fresh produce and make something special.
You'll watch the weight disappear as you learn to
prepare festive and flavorful dishes like Fire-Roasted
Tomato-Shrimp Veracruz, Chicken Sausage Jambalaya, or Flank
Steak with Chimichurri Topping and indulge in desserts like
Roasted Peaches with Ricotta and Almonds or Apple Rhubarb
Walnut Crisp. And for each delicious recipe, there is a
detailed nutritional analysis, so you know exactly what you
are eating and how it fits into your personal eating plan.
Most important, Bob's plan doesn't end once you've
lost the weight. Instead, it gives you the tools you need to
make living your best life second nature, because for
Greene, a diet is not something you go "on" or "off" but a
set of guidelines that will help you claim the life you deserve.
