Synopsis

Atkins, Master Cleanse, Jenny Craig, South Beach, The Zone. So many diets to choose from and so many different books to buy. But, at last, a path has opened in the enormous, overgrown thicket of diet information. This revolutionary book takes information from these weight loss and health management plans and organizes them into a sensible, easy to use reference. There is no other book even remotely like this one-as complete or as useful. The Diet Selector gives readers the skinny on more than 50 ways to lose weight through low- calorie, lowcarbohydrate, or low-fat diets with a thorough discussion on the merits of each approach. It gives the lowdown on popular fasting diets, liquid regimens, surgical solutions, jaw wiring, patches, and pills-every conceivable tactic used today to slim down. The Diet Selector ranks all of the best-known diets with at-aglance icons indicating: how punishing they are, cost of food, whether they’re for quick weight loss or the long haul, popularity, and suitability for people of different ages. Although the information is serious and valuable, the presentation is full of colorful charts, indicating such things as caloric values of key foods and the effectiveness of different exercise regimes. Also in there for fun: diet trivia that includes the first known diet, crazy celebrity trends, and fab or forbidden foods. There are also sample weekly eating plans presented diary-style on a grid with links to relevant websites. Beyond the quest for thin, this volume also addresses how to use nutrition to effectively combat health conditions like allergies, gastrointestinal disorders, thyroid problems, migraines, low metabolism, and heart disease. It truly is the most comprehensive diet book you can buy.
