Format: Hardcover
Dr. Stutman offers a new book on weight loss. The basis of the book - 20 Grams of fat a day, 20 minutes of walking a day - is basic common sense. However, Dr. Stutman writes in an engaging manner, keeping the pages turning as he slips in a lot of useful information.
There are sample menus to stay on track with the proper distribution of fat, protein and carbohydrates. Dr. Stutman goes over the fiber content in various foods, the different types of fat, how veggies are full of all sorts of good stuff and help fight disease...I could go on, but this book is worth reading to find out for yourself.
The other focus in this book is exercise. Dr. Stutman goes over the various types of aerobic exercise, though he spends the most time on his registered Fit-Step Program. Fit-Step is about walking, though the category is rather broader than that since dancing is one type of "Step."
For a common sense approach to weight loss, good health and a plan that can last a lifetime, I recommend DIET-STEP 20/20 FOR WOMEN ONLY!

Format: Hardcover
Dr. Fred Stutman's Diet-Step 20 Grams/20 Minutes for Women Only! is a "user friendly" weight-loss and fitness guide written in response to the many other diets for women that spark initial weight loss but usually end with the weight being gained back. Diets in which most of the weight loss is water, diets that cause the dieter's body to burn muscle protein, and diets that unintentionally prompt binging are all poor health choices. Diet-Step 20 Grams/20 Minutes for Women Only! counters all of these problems with a two-step program that combines a high-fiber, low fat diet with a daily exercise plan of 20 minutes of walking. The goal is healthy, lifelong diet and fitness for women, allowing even the occasional dessert.

Format: Hardcover
"Remember, you live in your body and you do not have to make drastic changes in order to feel good about yourself." With these words, Stutman sets the tone for his latest book on diet and exercise for women. Diet-Step: 20 Grams/20 Minutes is a positive, encouraging book written with a woman's physiological makeup and special concerns in mind.
In the first section, Stutman describes the Diet-Step plan, a low-fat and high-fiber diet that provides a well-balanced, varied selection of foods. He explains the dangers of fad diets and offers both quick weight-loss and maintenance eating plans. He suggests that readers eat no more than twenty grams of fat and no less than twenty grams of fiber daily at the beginning of the program, with small increases on the maintenance plan. The "Fat and Fiber Counter" in the middle of the book is an excellent quick reference to supplement the eating plans.
In the second section, Stutman outlines the Fit-Step plan, which consists of at least twenty minutes of walking or other aerobic exercise each day, and the Trim-Step plan to firm up muscles. He describes the effects of exercise on weight, health, appearance, and overall quality of life. He translates hours exercised into calories burned and is careful to point out safety issues for exercisers.
Stutman's medical expertise and research background are obvious throughout this book. For example, he urges the reader to assume a healthy eating lifestyle rather than to "go on a diet." He explains the body's attempts to conserve fat when a person adheres to an overly restrictive diet, the psychology of the binge eating/dieting cycle, and the importance of combining eating well with vigorous exercise.
