EAT

Feed Your Body and Starve the Fat

Ian K. Smith, M.D.

St. Martin's Griffin

Diets are made to go “on” and “off” of, and if you’re like most people—who want to be fit, lean, alert and healthy—you don’t want to diet.  You want to eat naturally and normally, in a way that helps you have the body and lifestyle you deserve to enjoy.  In EAT, Dr. Ian Smith has created a flexible and intelligent plan that you can follow every day, in every situation—eating out, working late, traveling, cooking for the holidays—and that will urge your body to perform at its peak. You’ll drop any excess pounds you need to lose.   You won’t worry about what you “can” and “can’t” eat, but will listen to yourself and eat smart.

Dr. Ian’s Ten Simple Rules for Good Eating tell you what the experts know. They include:

--Follow the Rainbow: if you eat color, you’re getting vitamins and minerals in the right package
--Carb Heaven: don’t ban carbohydrates—or any nutrient group!
--Size Matters:  how to portion, and secret calories you don’t know about
--You are What You Drink: the miracle liquid and drinks that can wash out good eating

EAT is not about denial.  It’s about permission….to live, to fuel your strong body, to eat!
