The Sonoma Diet: Trimmer Waist, Better Health in Just 10 Days!

Front Cover
Meredith Books, 2005 - Health & Fitness - 319 pages
With a focus on 'power foods', portion control, and healthful eating, 'The sonoma diet' focuses on relishing meals without considering calories or pretty much anything that smacks of a typical diet. Using Northern California's Sonoma County as a background for health and vitality, the diet is grouped into 3 'waves' of weight loss and transformation. Grapes, tomatoes, almonds, bell peppers, blueberries, strawberries, broccoli, olive oil, and whole grains are the 10 'power foods' that act as the crux of the diet. To the joy of dieters, wine is also included. With 500 recipes - like Chopped Salmon Salad, Chili Mint Burgers, Greek Pizza, and Peachy Berry Cobbler - there's a lot to choose from.
