Publisher Comments:

Your fat is not your fault.

Are you eating all the right things—low-fat yogurt, egg-white omelets, whole-grain bread, even tofu—but still can't lose the weight? Your favorite "diet" foods may be to blame.

In this groundbreaking program, nutrition and fitness expert JJ Virgin reveals the real secret behind weight gain—food intolerance. A negative reaction to certain foods like dairy or gluten can sabotage your health by triggering inflammation and causing a host of nasty symptoms like bloating, breakouts, headaches, achy joints and—worst of all—stubborn weight gain.

On The Virgin Diet, you'll eat plenty of anti-inflammatory, healing foods to reclaim your health and reset your metabolism, while avoiding the 7 foods that are most likely to cause food intolerance. You'll never feel hungry or deprived, and in just one week, you'll drop up to 7 pounds, lose belly bloat, gain energy, clear up inflammation and look and feel years younger. And that's just the beginning!

Review:

"Fitness and nutrition expert/celebrity coach and author (Six Weeks to Sleeveless and Sexy) Virgin makes some stunning claims in her latest book, among them that with her plan followers will look 10 years younger and that the very foods that most people think are healthy may be making them fat. According to Virgin, who has tested her theories on thousands in the past two decades it's food intolerance (FI) that leads to weight gain, inflammation, premature aging, and the inability to take weight off and keep it off even when dieting, exercising, and eating 'healthy' foods. Her three-cycle plan includes 21 days of totally eliminating the seven main culprits: gluten, soy, dairy, eggs, corn, and peanuts, and sugar/artificial sweeteners (with a chemist's aplomb, she explains why). After the initial 'cycle,' followers may re-introduce certain foods while keeping a close tab on whether such symptoms as bloating or achy joints recur. Although the plan initially works the same way for everyone, in the second cycle readers learn how to tailor their diet to counter individual food intolerances. In the third (and lifelong) cycle, readers are encouraged to stick to the foods that jive with their own body chemistry (some items, such as peanuts and corn, are permanently nixed). Virgin's prose is clear and convincing, but it appears, one must be true to the method for 21 days to reap results. (Dec.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
