Shop and then drop...your weight! The trusted diet and nutrition experts at Good Housekeeping present a groundbreaking new way to navigate the supermarket aisles for weight loss-and achieve long-lasting success.

Real food for real folks--and real weight loss that you'll be able to maintain. And it's all as easy as going to your local supermarket and picking up ordinary packaged convenience foods. Diets are among Good Housekeeping's most popular features, and now the magazine has created a diet revolution that everyone will want to join. Here, you will learn how to read food labels to eat healthy, shop for packaged foods that won't sabotage a diet, and stick to a healthy balanced menu that is low in calories, high in fiber, and moderate in carbs, fats, and protein.

Why you will love this diet:
* It's inexpensive and easy: the food is affordable and most meal preparation takes less than 20 minutes.
* It's flexible: you can choose from an enormous variety of foods.
* It's forgiving: you can have chocolate, alcohol, and other treats without feeling like you've blown it. There's even a Calorie Counter with 125-calorie snacks to satisfy cravings.

The diet begins with a two-week Boot Camp, which consists of 1,200 calories a day for fast, motivational results-many people will lose three to five pounds. But don't worry--with such items as rotisserie chicken and burritos, you'll come through without feeling deprived. Then, shift to Keep on Losin', a less rigorous daily plan of 1,500 calories--but one that's still highly effective! You might lose one to two pounds a week following these guidelines.

To make things even easier, there are 100 mouthwatering recipes, many incorporating convenience foods--and they're all tested in Good Housekeeping's famed kitchens. And there are dozens of helpful tips about avoiding diet saboteurs-including, believe it or not, eating too little, which slows the metabolism. With advice on things like dieting when your family isn't, the secrets of successful weight-loss winners, and stocking the kitchen wisely, you're set up for sensible weight loss, as well as a lifetime of healthy eating!

The best thing about this book is that it has both feet firmly planted on Earth, where most of us live. Other diet books assume that we have all the time in the world to plan menus and select the makings of wonderfully healthful anti-oxidizing metabolically friendly dishes. And that money is no object in the pursuit of sveltness. Janis Jibrin knows better and has written a clear, practical guide that anyone can follow. There's zero hype in here. The advice is pragmatic and founded in good science. The recipes are simple and fast. This is a book for all Earthling dieters.
