After analyzing the more than 40,000 products in the average supermarket plus menu items at popular chain restaurants and ingredients in everyday recipes, New York Times best-selling author and Reader's Digest editor-in-chief Liz Vaccariello reveals the hidden fat bombs you’re eating—and the simple, healthier substitutes that taste just as good. She tells you how to change brands, substitute similar foods, order better takeout and restaurant meals, and buy smarter at the grocery store. Losing weight has never been so simple!
Featuring more than 500 photographs, Stop and Drop Diet offers a mix-and-match 3-phase meal plan that's designed for fast weight loss and maximum flexibility along with balanced nutrition for good health. In each phase, simply choose from the lists of quick and easy meals, which include a variety of:
• packaged foods from the supermarket, from Kellogg's Special K granola bar to Starkist Chunk Light Tuna to Progresso canned soups and Lean Cuisine frozen dinners • restaurant and on-the-go choices, from Wendy's cheeseburger and McDonald's Egg McMuffin to Chipotle salads and TGIF's Sizzling Chicken and Spinach • simple 5-ingredient recipes, from a banana-berry smoothie to a turkey sandwich to a cheesy bean tortilla
• snacks and desserts, from chips and salsa to ice cream sandwiches and even Starbucks cake pops
There are no hard-to-find brands or expensive ingredients, and you can find something to eat anywhere you go, no matter what your taste or lifestyle.
The book also includes: • an at-a-glance visual guide to the worst choices for each dish (the ones you want to stop eating) and the best choices for each dish (the ones you want to starting eating instead) • inspiring stories and advice from the 10 real readers who tested out the diet, most of whom lost more than a pound a day in the first 5 days and continued to lose weight steadily (up to 20 pounds in 4 weeks and counting!) • simple suggestions for substituting healthy, filling, and delicious foods to create your own meals to stop and drop a pound a day
From the team that created the bestselling Digest Diet and 21-Day Tummy Diet, here is a healthy, effective, and sustainable way to lose weight fast and keep it off for life; Stop & Drop a Pound a Day is truly the easiest diet ever.
