With no dieting, sacrifice, or self-denial, Suzanne Somers' Eat Great, Lose Weight encourages you to eat all the foods you love while staying thin forever, to enhance body image and self-image. The program is based on ten years of research and interviews with nutritionists. It teaches you how to eat foods in special combinations in order to restructure your metabolism. Divided into two parts, Level 1 is for people who want to lose weight and Level 2 is for maintaining the reduced weight. Suzanne Somers' Eat Great, Lose Weight is a complete written explanation of what Somersizing is and how the program works. With more than 100 Somersizing recipes, from soups to main courses to desserts, it offers Suzanne's invaluable advice regarding Somersizing, including how to order dinner at a restaurant, how the program can work on a vegetarian diet, which ethnic foods can be Somersize friendly, and why dark chocolate and wine can be acceptable to eat on the program. "Food is only one component of a happy, healthier life. I firmly believe that you must master not only your physical health but also your emotional wellness," says Suzanne. "In this book, I'll show you what works for me. You'll learn how to be fit, not fanatic; how to make movement and fitness a pleasurable part of daily life; and how to make the most of every moment of every day, including your meals." Suzanne Somers' Eat Great, Lose Weight will appeal to people who want to enjoy life, to lose weight without dieting and undue sacrifice. It's a real program from a real person who has done it herself and continues to do it every day. "With Somersizing I can eat all the wonderful foods I love and still lose weight. I don't have to give up flavor. I don't settle for boring meals with no sauce. I don't count calories or fat," says Suzanne. "Somersizing is an easy and effective way to look and feel your best while enjoying life to the fullest. You'll have more energy than ever before, you'll say good-bye to the bloating and gas that used to rountinely follow mealtimes; and you'll lose weight." Respectful and mindful of what people really want, "Somersizing is not about being physically perfect or unrealistically thin. It's about being the best you can be."

User Review  - Andd Becker - Goodreads

The author's conversational tone is appealing. The food lists are useful. The recipes are delightful in their ease of preparation. The book is more of a maintenance plan than a lose-weight plan. Read the book after you have successfully shed pounds, over time. Read full review
