Review:

After years of ultra-low-fat eating schemes, high-protein plans, and fad diets, a new diet mentality is dawning. Diet gurus are preaching what many nutrition experts have suspected all along: calories count.

The Pritikin Principle: The Calorie Density Solution is one example of the new camp of sensible weight-loss plans. Follow the plan and you should lose weight, feel satisfied, and improve your overall health. Plus, the plan is straightforward and easy to use. The Pritikin Principle is based on learning the caloric density of foods (the number of calories in a given weight of food) and eating meals with a low caloric density. You don't need to count calories; just choose meals with a low caloric density. An extensive Caloric Density Index, restaurant guide, flexible meal plans, and more than 50 recipes show you how to lower the caloric concentration of meals without going hungry. Exercise tips, health information, and success stories are also included. Written by Robert Pritikin, director of the renowned Pritikin Longevity Center and son of founder Nathan Pritikin, along with a team of registered dietitians, The Pritikin Principle is filled with practical, sound advice you can live with for life. --Ellen Albertson
