This book tells how to lose the pounds for good with a cardiologist's simple, healthy, proven plan! The reality is that extreme diets that promise instant results just don't work. For one thing, you lose muscle and water, but little fat, and may seriously jeopardize your health in the process. For another, restricting certain foods and food groups deprives your body of essential nutrients. In the end, the faster the pounds come off, the faster they pile back on. After seeing many of his patients fail on these kind of fad diets, and suffer health-threatening side effects, Dr. Steven Schnur, founder of the largest cardiology practice in South Florida, developed a new, breakthrough program. The Reality Diet is not low carb, low fat or high protein. Instead it is rich in one key fat-fighting ingredient - fibre. Not only does fibre stop hunger, it also significantly lowers the risk of heart disease, diabetes and a host of other illnesses. With "The Reality Diet" you will: learn the simple 2: 90 rule to choose the most nutritious carbs with the right fibre content; enjoy mouth-watering meals, using more than 200 quick, easy recipes designed by a top recipe developer and a registered dietician; and, follow meal plans specifically designed to meet the difference nutritional needs of men and women.
