From the Back Cover
This exciting work is a realistic and practical guide to a healthier and happier lifestyle. The Jack Sprat plan uses a guided day-by-day approach geared to gender, size, and physical activity level. Each of the four weeks in the plan starts with a complete grocery list and includes menus analyzed to show calories and grams of fat and to assure fulfillment of RDA guidelines. Recipes are provided for all home-prepared items in the plan, and specially designed tables help with substitutions in the daily menus. The plan even provides a system of controlled cheating for those who can't bear to give up fast foods completely.
