Publisher Comments:

What if there were a weight-loss diet that allowed you to eat your favorite foods and be completely satisfied, without ever counting calories or restricting food groups again? What if this diet was supported by scientific research from the prestigious Yale Prevention Research Center and was clinically proven to help you shed excess pounds quickly and safely, improve your blood sugar, lower your blood pressure, and reverse other key markers of chronic diseases such as diabetes and heart disease?

That diet is here! From Dr. David Katz, acclaimed director of Yale's Prevention Research Center, ABC News' chief medical correspondent and O Magazine's nutrition columnist, comes THE FLAVOR POINT DIET, a mouthwatering, groundbreaking diet drawn from cutting-edge science that maximizes your eating pleasure, optimizes your health, and guarantees permanent weight loss. By combining foods selected by flavor, this research-based breakthrough method tricks your brain into being satisfied all day long, so you don't eat when you don't need to. Following "flavor themes" by week, day, meal and dish, you'll learn to reach the Flavor Point-- the moment at which you feel completely full and deliciously satisfied-- sooner, so you can shed pounds faster! Just follow the delectable step-by-step menu plan and you'll lose up to 32 lbs in 12 weeks.

Boasting 12 weeks of menu plans, over 150 new recipes, and testimonials (with before and after photos) from Dr. Katz's clinical studies, the book also offers substitution lists, helpful tools, dozens of tips on how to adapt the plan to fit each reader's personal tastes and lifestyles, and a complete blueprint for using the scrumptious new method for life. Plus, there's no need to prepare alternate meals for the rest of the family-- it's nutritionally healthy for all, even for kids!

I recently attended Green Mountain @ FoxRun, a weight loss camp for woman. I finally am convinced "@&$*!" don't work. Normally I would purchase a book like your but have decided to remove the word "diet" from my vocabulary. I have been on weight loss plans for approx 35 years and "@$&%! don't work. So I will read what your book is about and maybe try a few techniques (strategies). But the word "#^@*" will not be on my coffee table/ private library again.
Thank you Green Mountain. Carol Z
