KIRKUS REVIEW

Nutritionist Kordel -- in deathless prose adding ""years of dynamic health and happiness to your life"" -- is also pushing Lord Byron's, or the Greek mountaineer, formula which he tried himself -- namely, HOV (honey/oil/vinegar), an all-purpose gastric challenge you eat before you don't eat other things. He's also knocking recent fashionable diets (Drinking Man's, Doctor's Quick Weight Loss), suggesting alternate shorter crash diets or imports from foreign countries, providing his own menus and recipes (the omnipresent wheat germ and safflower oil), and telling how other famous people like Jackie Gleason and President Nixon turned off their ""appestats."" A book like this and a little terrine of HOV should also do it.
