                      Reviews of Gabe Mirkin's book The 20/30 Fat & Fiber Diet Plan by Gabe
                      Mirkin

                      Amazon.com
                      The average American eats the fat equivalent of a cup of butter each
                      day, and it's easy to convert this dietary fat to body fat (the saying "A
                      moment on the lips, forever on the hips" isn't so farfetched after all). This
                      is probably why one in three adults in this country is obese. But authors
                      Gabe Mirkin, M.D., and Barry Fox, Ph.D. (coauthor of the bestselling
                      Arthritis Cure) say that focusing on cutting the fat out of your diet is not
                      the right way to lose weight, as a drastically low-fat diet almost always
                      leads to late-day bingeing.

                      By increasing dietary fiber to 30 grams a day (with beans, whole grains,
                      and vegetables), and by moderately cutting fat intake to 20 grams, they
                      say that permanent weight loss can be achieved-- without painful hunger
                      pangs, headaches, or petulant fits of rage that threaten your long-term
                      relationships. This is the very diet that TV talk-show host Larry King
                      credits with saving his life.

                      Of course, this is the diet that everyone knows they should be following.
                      Eating a low-fat, high-fiber diet including vegetables has been shown to
                      help prevent colon, breast, lung, and other kinds of cancers; helps keep
                      the heart healthy; may prevent adult-onset diabetes; and lowers blood
                      pressure. But having a life often gets in the way of eating right. That's
                      where the hundred easy-to-prepare recipes in The 20/30 Fat and
                      Fiber Plan come in, including Southwestern Bean Dip, Extra Quick
                      Chili, and Sicilian Minestrone. Few recipes require more than 10
                      ingredients, and most can be made in less than half an hour. More than
                      100 pages of fat and fiber counts for thousands of foods, including
                      take-out and brand-name items, make it easy to follow the plan while
                      eating on the run.

                      The 20/30 Fat and Fiber Plan recognizes that humans are, after all,
                      fallible, so you're allowed to "cheat" on the diet. "The 19 Meals Rule"
                      says that each week, if you follow the plan for 19 meals, you can eat
                      whatever you want for 2 meals. While the authors say not to stuff
                      yourself, this does make the 20/30 plan one you can follow even while
                      eating out. They also avoid the a word (aerobics) and give guidelines
                      for playing away excess weight.

                      Hallelujah, a sensible weight-loss plan that improves your health, rather
                      than endangering it like so many diet fads of late! --Erica Jorgensen
