JUST TELL ME WHAT TO EAT! by Timothy Harlan

JUST TELL ME WHAT TO EAT!

The Delicious 6-Week Weight Loss Plan for the Real World

KIRKUS REVIEW

A diet plan that focuses on what you can eat, not what you can’t.

Harlan (eatTHISdiet for Coumadin Users, 2008, etc.) actually tells readers exactly what to eat in this diet manual. His six-week program to achieve optimal health through diet and nutrition relies on “high quality calories” and self-prepared meals that take cues from Mediterranean cuisine. The author isn’t only a board-certified internist but a trained chef as well, and the man behind the popular website DrGourmet.com. His manual is a winning, easily implemented blend of medically sound weight-loss advice and recipes for delicious, nutritious food. In each chapter, Harlan sets goals, explains what to expect and supplies readers with exact recipes and shopping lists. Clear, simple directives tell readers not only what to eat, but when, how and why. For Harlan, a self-proclaimed lover of food, taste is just as important as nutritional value. Readers may be surprised to find that the first dinner on Harlan’s meal plan is Fettuccini Alfredo with Shrimp and Broccoli; pizza and dessert are on the menu as well.

Recommended for those who need meal-by-meal guidance and aren’t willing to forgo their favorite foods—the perfect marriage of medical knowledge and gourmet cooking.
