Since they’ve got filling fiber, spuds also help you stay fuller, longer. Avoid the deeper-fryer, though. Potatoes are a nutrient-dense food as long as they’re not served the French-fry way.
After one month, the researchers used a body fat x-ray machine to examine fat distribution (the machine they used is called a DEXA). Participants were then put on the second diet plan for one month before researchers looked at their body fat distribution again.

This diet book is badly outdated. The diet appears to be all right for those who have 20 pounds or less to lose, and for those people, could be a lifestyle eating plan. The optional exercise plan seems adequate, but not really suited for most people with real lives — you know, those people who don’t have 1-2 hours a day several times a week to devote to exercise. Maybe it would just be better if we were more like the Amish — working physically hard all day and didn’t worry about “exercise”. No …more
