THE LAST DIET BOOK YOU’LL EVER NEED With so much conflicting weight-loss advice out there to confuse your efforts, it’s no wonder you haven’t been successful losing weight and keeping it off in the past. But with Bob Harper, superstar trainer and co-host of NBC’s hit showThe Biggest Loseras your personal authority and coach, you can and will finally shed the pounds—whether you want to lose two or two hundred! Distilling Bob’s vast knowledge of nutrition, weight-loss strategy, and human nature down to twenty simple, nonnegotiable principles,The Skinny Ruleswill help you step away from a reliance on processed foods and the need for so much sweet and salt and step into a newly thin lifestyle. And it couldn’t be more straightforward about what you need to do. For example: Rule #4:Eat protein at every meal, making some kind of fish your go-to protein as often as you can. Take your weight and divide it by two—that’s more or less how much protein you should be eating in grams every day.Rule #12:Make one day a week a meatless day. Learn to use a few simple plant foods well, and this rule will keep you from succumbing to that notorious dieter’s trap: monotony.Rule #18:Go to bed slightly hungry. Denied fuel for more than five hours, your body will start burning its own fat and sugar. Make a point not to eat after dinner and you’ll be burning fat while you’re sleeping.Rule #20:Enjoy a splurge meal once a week. Unlike episodic bingeing, splurge meals are an ingredient in your diet. When you plan something, you are in control. Taking the guesswork out of implementingThe Skinny Rules,Bob offers a month’s worth of menu plans and delicious, rule-abiding recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks to keep you cooking and eating skinny for life. You’ll be happily astounded to see the variety and volume of the tasty food on your plate! He also includes terrific tips for what to stock in your fridge and what to prepare every weekend in order to set yourself up for success during your too-busy-to-cook weekdays. A virtual GPS to your weight loss goals,The Skinny Rulestakes the mystery out of the process; it offers the fastest route to your skinny destination.
