Serves 4; 3 ounces fish per serving
Mild-flavored tilapia, which blends so nicely with other foods, is complemented here with baby spinach leaves and a topping of crushed walnuts.
4 tilapia fillets (about 4 ounces each)
1/4 teaspoon salt
Pepper to taste
5 ounces fresh baby spinach leaves
1/2 cup shredded or grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup dry white wine (regular or nonalcoholic), plus more as needed
1/2 cup fat-free, low-sodium chicken broth or low-sodium
vegetable broth, plus more as needed
1 medium shallot, minced
2 tablespoons walnuts, crushed
Preheat the oven to 375°F.
Rinse the tilapia and pat dry with paper towels. Place the fish on a flat surface. Sprinkle the fish with the salt and pepper. Place the spinach on the fish. Sprinkle with the Parmesan. Starting at a short end, roll each fillet jelly-roll style. Secure each roll-up with a wooden toothpick. Place the fillets in a glass 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking dish.
Pour the wine and broth over the fish, using enough liquid to fill the dish to a depth of about 1/2 inch.
Sprinkle the shallot over the fish.
Bake, covered, for 30 minutes, or until the fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.
To serve, using a slotted pancake turner, transfer the roll-ups to plates. Sprinkle with the walnuts.

I am a burnt out "Zoner". This summer I watched the scales go higher and higher, commensurate with my apathy for sensible eating. Unacceptable behavior but inevitable considering the five year stretch of in-the-Zone living I did.
I read an article in BOOM, a newpaper for baby boomers. The reporter was assigned the task of finding a "diet that worked". He had on his list the AMA NO FAD DIET. Intrigued, he and his wife decided to give it a try. He reported that within weeks he had lost inches and was experiencing that all important psychological feeling of wellness that comes along with a healthy balanced eating plan. It was good timing and I bought the book immediately.
I think it most important to have finally found some guidelines that are presented in a manner that really feels like new found knowledge, instead of a mixed up version of the same old same old. The first part of the book, which discusses three different eating plans and why and how to choose which works best for you somehow did a wonderful job of just "sticking" in my mind. It's rare in this kind of book to find that you actually feel satisfied in the reading of it and have knowledge retention afterwards.
As a final note - for those women out there whose boyfriend/husband is resistant to strict diets - this is the most reasonable choice.Read more ›
There is a lot of good advice about customizing your approach using 3 key concepts
1.Think before you eat
2. Eat well
3. Exercise more
These keys are the author's "circles of success" for weight loss. Take home message Fad diets don't work, eat less, eat healthily and exercise more.
