AN EATING PLAN THAT CHANGES LIFESTYLES TO LOSE WEIGHT PERMANENTLY The L.A. Diet is a healthy eating plan that sets you on an unwavering course to permanent weight loss and lifelong health. It presents a comprehensive theory based on scientific evidence that explains why people become overweight. More importantly it explains how to alter diet and lifestyle to permanently shed unwanted body fat without ending up cold, tired, and hungry. The L.A. Diet Program will teach you how to eat generous portions of the right kinds of foods and to eat more frequently ( grazing ) -- to satisfy your hunger--and still lose weight. The L.A. Diet explains why complex carbohydrate foods stoke your metabolic furnace to burn more calories. You'll learn why eating fat makes you fat by slowing metabolic heat production. This drives you to consume more calories and store the extra fat calories as insulating body fat. The L.A. Diet is based on an eating plan that includes low fat, high complex carbohydrate, high fiber foods. It encourages generous portions of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains. The L.A. Diet introduces the concept of caloric density when evaluating foods rather than simply focusing on calories. Low calorically dense foods are those foods that have less concentrated calories based on their weight. You can enjoy generous portions of these foods --they'll fill you up, reduce appetite and hunger -- and help you lose weight. This is an important concept for so many dieters who are tired of restricting food intake, limiting portions, counting calories, and going hungry all day. The L.A. Diet explains why other diets don't work and why restricting caloric intake only creates an unresolvable conflict between the intellect and the appetite. The L.A. Diet tells you why dieting creates eating disorders and why eating disorders are t the cause of obesity but simply the result of irrational attempts to diet. The L.A. Diet takes the blame of past failures off the dieter's shoulders and places them squarely on the numerous irrational programs promising rapid weight loss while setting up the dieter for long term failure. This book first sets people straight about the myths and realities of weight loss and then provides a comprehensive how to section. The second part of The L.A. Diet explains how you can adopt a grazing style of eating which our bodies are designed by nature to thrive on. It contains scores of nutritional advice, eating plans, menus and recipes as well as nutrition charts to get you started. Tips on stocking your kitchen, balancing your menu plans for optimal nutrition, entertaining at home in style, travelling and making dining out a healthy experience. More than 100 recipes help you get started and show you how to graze to your heart's (and stomach's) content. You will learn how to enjoy food, lose weight, and improve your overall health. All of the recipes are created low in fat, cholesterol, sodium and sugar. You can enjoy guilt-free eating and at the same time lose weight. The best part also is that you will be eating foods that help reduce your risk for heart disease, high blood pressure and type II diabetes. The L.A. Diet promises enjoyable, delicious food, eating to satisfy your appetite, improved health, and permanent weight loss without the negative consequences of restricting calories, and feeling chronic hunger pangs. The L.A. Diet is truly an eating plan for a longer, healthier life! Unlike so many books on the subject of dieting and weight control, The L.A. Diet undergirds all of its recommendations with scientific data and their explanation. --Hans Fisher, Ph.D. Chairman, Nutrition Department Rutgers University

Today, I enjoy eating low fat foods as much as I did my steak-and-ice-cream diet of 35 years ago. Best of all, I'm in better health today, in my 60s, than I was in my 30s. Before changing my eating habits, my blood pressure was 150/100 and my cholesterol was over 300. Today, my blood pressure is generally below 110/70, my cholesterol is 180, and my HDL 'good' cholesterol is 80. Plus, I eat a lot of great-tasting, satisfying food and never go hungry. I weigh 157 pounds at 6'3. That's 40 pounds less than my weight in college. America would not have an epidemic of obesity, hypertension, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease if we could get everyone on a low fat, high fiber eating plan as described in the The L.A. Diet program. Biography: Diane Grabowski-Nepa, M.N.S., R.D. Diane Grabowski-Nepa is a Registered Dietitian with a Master's of Nutritional Science Degree from Clemson University.
