Diet 911: Food Cop to the Rescue with 265 New Low-Fat Recipes Mass Market Paperback – January 5, 1998
Yolanda Bergman, diet consultant to the stars and owner of a home-delivery gourmet health-food service in Hollywood, gives a no-nonsense, no quick-fix philosophy to weight control. It's a lifetime of exercise, she writes, and eating a nutritious, low-fat diet--but that doesn't mean denying yourself tasty food. Bergman provides 265 easy-to-prepare, gourmet recipes to make weight control that much easier. She includes foods such as Skinny Kisses (low-fat chocolate kisses) and Sicilian Chicken. In a bit of name-dropping, Bergman lists Nolina's Turkey Chili and Tandori Shrimp and Scallop Kabobs as two of television talk-show host Leeza Gibbons's favorites. The recipes are so simple, Bergman calls many of them "no-brainers."
Author of the bestselling Food Cop, Bergman wrote Diet 911 to serve as the reader's "emergency help line," not as an encyclopedic lesson in fitness and nutrition. "This help line is here to give you answers, not more lectures on things you already know about how to get thin and stay healthy." She ends with a short chapter, "The Bottom Line: What It Takes to Lose Weight Once and for All," that sketches out a six-week plan and lists "Eleven Absolutes for Everybody." Although one of the "absolutes" is "move, move, move," the book isn't meant to provide a full-fledged fitness program. Instead, Diet 911 motivates with upbeat words and those 265 gourmet recipes.
From Library Journal
Apparently Bergman, a.k.a. the "Food Cop," is even more intimidating to would-be binge eaters than the spastic Susan Powter. Here, she offers a collection of healthy recipes.
