From the jacket: "[This book] offers a revolutionary approach to losing pounds and looking and feeling better without ever going hungry...the only diet that lets you eat when and as often as you want. The author urges you to acknowledge your food fantasies...and indulge in them while losing weight! [She] proves that it is not particular foods that put on the unwanted pounds but the improper combination of these foods...Judy's technique, conscious combining, separates [this] diet from the rest of the diets in the world. It is unique. There are no 'nevers.'"
Well, but, as I noticed while perusing the book, there ARE "Hardly Evers," which include salt, sugars, dairy products such as milk, cheese, and yogurt, so this diet doesn't mean you really can eat whatever you want. However, I suppose that it can help one get into the right frame of mind so that one FEELS one is eating what and when one wants.
Contains hints for overcoming old habits and also quite a few recipies.
Imagine a program where you can indulge in your favorite foods--from steak to pasta, and even champagne--and still lose weight easily. Then imagine being able to maintain your new slim shape forever. With this new program, author Judy Mazel has made your dreams a reality. She shows you how to take charge of the foods you eat to achieve a lifestyle eating plan that will keep you off the "fat track" for good.
The secret to your new slimhood rests with Conscious Combining. Refined and expanded from its introduction in Mazel's original book, this technique teaches you how and when to mix different food groups for optimum weight control. You'll also learn the four golden rules of weight management, plus the significance of enzyme interaction in weight loss.
The program now includes a 35-day "Born Again Skinny" diet with recipes for your new food lifestyle. This is a diet many Hollywood stars have embraced. Judy's private client list has included luminaries such as Jack Nicholson, Jodie Foster, Maria Shriver and Engelbert Humperdinck. They, and countless others, found this to be the lifestyle eating plan that changed their shape forever.
This diet is about using the different enzymes in foods. Raw fruit is where you start, it takes preparation and you stay in certain food groups for a while! It's a restrictive diet in that you eat only one thing each day or so. Diet of the 80's!
