KIRKUS REVIEW

A routine low-calorie plan, for women who are willing to browbeat their male partners into diet submission. As Kalter sees it: ""Women just seem to be the stronger sex. . . maybe it's because I'm just a pushy, aggressive, opinionated broad--but one day I merely decided that if he wasn't going to do something about his weight, by God, I would do something for him."" What she did was put her husband on the usual low-calorie diet, do all his meal-planning and cooking, encourage the usual behavior changes around meal times, and urge him to exercise. To help others do the same, she sketches out her approach (readers can either inform their men of the plan or put them on the diet unbeknownst)--also providing some recipes and general information on nutrition. Sketchy, run-of-the-mill material--only, moreover, for those willing to take responsibility for someone else's health problem.
