Starvation is not the key to weight loss. Free to Eat: The Proven Recipe for Permanent Weight Loss is a guide to losing weight that don't involve radically changing one's diet. Emphasizing the power of legumes, warning against milk products and the deception of supplements and other health concerns, Free to Eat is a highly educational and enlightening path to a diet that works for many readers. --Midwest Book Review

As with many a great notion, the idea came to nutritionist Bronwyn Schweigerdt while she was doing something totally unrelated to her work. I was rock climbing, Schweigerdt says, and I was doing one where you're basically horizontal. I'm hanging there upside down thinking, 'There needs to be a female superhero. There needs to be Fiber Girl. That's it!' 'I saw myself wearing a cape and a unitard.' I thought, 'I need to be that woman.' And so a superhero was born. Schweigerdt, who holds a master's in nutrition from Tufts University in Massachusetts, has taught at Sacramento City College and has run numerous corporate dietary seminars, shed her academic persona and donned a cape and a blue unitard with a big yellow F emblazoned on her chest. Schweigerdt sees herself as something of an obesity avenger, a tireless fighter who battles poor diets while promoting truth, justice and a high-fiber diet. Faster than you can say Wilfred Brimley, Schweigerdt launches into an impassioned, convincing monologue. She credits increased fiber in one's diet with everything from reducing diabetes risk by lowering blood sugar to improving the health of the digestive tract, lowering cholesterol, regulating gallbladder bile, retarding autoimmune diseases ... you get the point. Skeptics might ask, Whoa can fiber do all that? Then Pow! she delivers the knockout blow: weight loss. Fiber is filling, and soluble fiber binds with water and expands in your stomach, she says. You can't overeat with fiber. And because fiber is a carbohydrate not easily absorbed in your system, fiber calories go out the back door and, flush, they're gone, as Schweigerdt delicately puts it in her book. --Sacramento Bee
