"Dieting is like holding your breath," NBC News medical correspondent Bob Arnot writes in his introduction. "You can only do it so long." His book details ways to eat a lot of food but still get lean. He recommends long lists of "hard" foods--those that your body has to work to process and put to use--and "soft" foods, which make you fat. There's also quite a bit about using foods to manipulate the neurotransmitters that control moods, like serotonin, which can make us feel good about ourselves, and dopamine, which makes some feel alert and productive. A well-written and thorough dietary sourcebook. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
