The head of the Department of Nutrition at Harvard and the author of Moosewood Cookbook have teamed up to create a new program that will show you how to shrink your waist and keep pounds off--while still eating everything you love!
With so many fad diets telling us to eat only this or none of that, it's no surprise that so many of us believe it's impossible to lose weight while eating a wide variety of delicious foods. But it is possible--and surprisingly simple. Eat, Drink, and Weigh Less presents a medically sound, easy-to-use program that paves the way for lifelong weight loss and good health.
This isn't a diet that deprives you of anything. You'll lose weight while eating and drinking the same things you already enjoy, including chocolate and alcohol! The secret is adding delicious food to your diet and making surprisingly simple changes in what you eat throughout the day. These small moves will add up to a big weight loss.
The Eat, Drink, and Weigh Less eating plan is flexible, adaptable to your lifestyle, and simple to implement. It even features a powerful new way to chart your progress, called the Body Score: The more you raise your Body Score, the more you will lower your weight!
While the concept is simple, the science behind it is not. The plan represents years of research conducted by Walter Willett, M.D., the head of the Harvard School of Public Health's Department of Nutrition, including results from the famous Nurses' Health Study. This study scored each of its more than 84,000 participants on food choices, exercise schedule, and body mass--resulting in a number that accurately determined the nurses' risk of heart disease.
Now, for the first time, Dr. Willett has teamed up with bestselling cookbook author Mollie Katzen to adapt this complex study to everyday use. With their Nine Turning Points and more than 100 delicious new recipes, they've created a user-friendly diet plan with fail-safe results. Choose foods according to these nine principles and you'll raise your Body Score--and lower your weight for good!
