They recommend--no surprise--the Mediterranean diet, which is rich in seafood and fresh fruits and vegetables, and is saturated with olive oil. Unlike other books that recommend this diet, though, Low-Fat Lies actually explains the science validating it. The authors explain the antioxidant properties of olive oil, and tell you why you don't want your cells to oxidize in the first place. (Same reason you don't want your car to rust.)
But that's not to imply that Low-Fat Lies is bogged down in science. The concepts are easily understandable for regular folks, which is a very good thing, considering how many of us fall prey to junk science masquerading as a "breakthrough" diet. Moving even farther away from theory, the book includes 40 pages of recipes from top American restaurants, along with a simple and useful chapter explaining how exercise blunts your appetite, and offering ideas about how to get more of it into your day. --Lou Schuler --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
