From the Inside Flap:

Weight loss for grown-ups! Drawn from the NIH-AARP Diet and Health Study, the largest-ever survey of American diet and lifestyle

Finally, here's a wonderful new way to eat and enjoy food that will not just help you look great, but have you feeling great, too. Complete with three practical weight-loss plans and dozens of delicious recipes, AARP New American Diet helps you lose up to ten pounds in two weeks. Based on solid science, this breakthrough book cuts through the confusion over what's good and bad for you and gives you a way of eating you can live with for a lifetime—a simple approach that will keep you vital, happy, and healthy without fads, gimmicks, or calorie counting.

Losing weight is the first step toward feeling better, staying sharp, avoiding disease, and living longer. Drawing on the largest-ever research study on American diet and lifestyle from two of the most authoritative names in the field—the National Institutes of Health and AARP—this practical, delicious plan will help you live a vital and active life while decreasing your risk of heart disease, cancer, and diabetes.

AARP New American Diet gives you definitive answers to many current diet questions: Should you drink coffee? What about red wine? Is diet soda okay? How much red meat can you eat, and how often? Are carbohydrates and processed foods as bad as they're often portrayed? Which fats should you eat and which should you avoid—and how much exercise do you really need? Beyond specific food choices, you'll learn how to fight the desire to eat when you know you shouldn't. You'll be able to set realistic goals you can stick to. You'll learn ways that certain foods can trick your brain into eating more—and surefire tips for overcoming those urges.

Featuring dozens of great, easy recipes for appetizers, soups, salads, sandwiches, side dishes, as well as many delicious fish, meat, and vegetarian entrees, AARP New American Diet includes easy-to-follow 7-, 14-, and 30-day meal plans that will help you lose weight, keep the weight off, and continue shedding pounds as you develop healthy, nutritious eating habits that will keep you going strong for many years to come. This book shows you a proven way to live well—every day.
