"Indulge yourself and be fabulous because of it" is the motto of The Hamptons--a 40-mile oceanfront stretch of Long Island where New York City's rich and famous frolic--and of Pescatore's diet. Former medical director of the Atkins Center, Pescatore incorporates what he believes to be the best of both low-carb and Mediterranean diets. The Hamptons Diet eliminates "unhealthful foods that your body does not metabolize well," Pescatore explains. His diet is high in monounsaturated fats (especially macadamia nut oil), vegetables, fish, lean meats, nuts, whole grains, and low-sugar fruits: "real food"--unprocessed, unrefined, mostly organic. Pescatore tells anecdotes about his rich and famous clients (first names only) who achieved health and weight loss with his program. His writing is peppy and easy to follow, though he falls into self-praise a bit much. He explains his concepts clearly, although you might want to skim some of his 21 pages about the properties of 32 different oils. About half the book consists of a 30-day menu plan and recipes that certainly don't shout "I'm dieting": quiche, pancakes, hot dogs, burgers stuffed with blue cheese, steak salad, ham, casserole, meatballs (with veal, pork, chuck, and cheese), and pork chops, for example. --Joan Price
