Publishers Text

Eating steak and eggs for breakfast and skipping the grapefruit may be the hot new way to lose weight, but Amanda Cross points out that it's hard to stick to this and keep the weight off long-term-not to mention unhealthy. In her new ground-breaking diet, Cross offers advice on using some of the same ideas that make the high-protein diets successful, but modifying them to work in the real world. The result is a book that combines recipes-low levels of complex carbohydrates, lots of protein, and some vegetables and fruit-with lifestyle guidelines, including information on exercise and vitamin supplements.

It's designed to help readers lose weight for good by breaking the process down into three parts. The first, the Fast-Track Plan, gets the process started with fast weight loss. The second, the Keep on Tracking Plan is designed to keep the pounds melting away until goal weight is achieved. Last, the No Backtracking Plan helps readers keep the weight off. Charts and tables make meal planning easier, and there are craving busters and snack allowances in addition to a wide variety of meal choices. This is the only diet book anyone will ever need.
