The No Time to Lose Diet

Disclaimer: I am not a doctor, so I can't give you medical advice. Every diet works differently for everyone else. That said, I recommend this book to those who are looking for a different diet book. This book, by Dr. Melina B. Jampolis, is not going to tell you what to eat --it tells you how to eat. Jampolis is no-nonsense--she's not going to let you get away with eating pizzas and hamburgers every night--but she's also not going to make you feel bad if you cheat a little. She's not going to make you cook anything complicated--in fact, she herself doesn't cook, so most of the "recipes" in this book involve canned chicken and prepackaged foods. Also, the book is incredibly well-written, with fascinating case studies of how different people lost weight and managed to keep it off. As someone who lost twenty pounds last year and is trying to keep that weight off, I appreciated her new ideas and her fresh approach to weight loss.
