‘Years ago, Suzanne Somers lost the chance to appear on a hit television series because she was “too chunky.” That missed opportunity started her on a “diet roller coaster,” trying all kinds of diets. Now Somers believes that diets and deprivation do not help people lose weight in the long-term. In Eat Great, Lose Weight, she explains the food-combining plan she calls “Somersizing”: eliminate “funky foods” such as sugar (“my body’s greatest enemy”) and white flour; eat fruits alone on an empty stomach; eat proteins and fats with vegetables and without carbohydrates; eat carbohydrates with vegetables and without fat.
Sommers presents 113 recipes that certainly don’t resemble a traditional diet and might make a weight-loss expert’s hair curl, such as Crispy Fried Eggplant and Mozzarella Finger Sandwiches, Flourless Cheese Souffle (with butter, eggs, cream cheese, and Gruyère cheese), and Grilled Pepper Steak with Herb Butter (trim the fat from the meat, but add both butter and olive oil). There’s no nutritional breakdown, so you can’t count fat or calories. Somers admits that “many experts will argue that food combining is a myth,” but she says it works for her, and she credits it with trimming her down to 116 pounds, even though she eats “more than ever

Forget counting calories, fat grams, and cholesterol. Forget blood pressure, blood sugar, and hormone levels. The single most important health measurement is the pH level in your blood. Now, The pH Miracle unlocks the surprisingly crucial role pH balance plays in weight loss. How acidic or alkaline your blood is (pH levels) directly affects your health and is controlled by diet.
For example, if the blood becomes overly acidic from eating too much of the wrong kinds of food — wheat, bananas, meats, and cheese — it can lead to weight gain, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and more. The Youngs’ program includes over 50 recipes and explains which foods to eat, which to avoid, and which supplements can help on the way towards optimal health and weight loss. In just weeks, readers will find they have more energy and a stronger immune system, and will have shed pounds and inches.
For years, cardiologist Arthur Agatston, M.D., urged his patients to lose weight for the sake of their hearts, but every diet was too hard to follow or its restrictions were too harsh. Some were downright dangerous. Nobody seemed to be able to stick with low-fat regimens for any length of time. And a diet is useless if you can’t stick with it.
So Dr. Agatston developed his own. The South Beach Diet isn’t complicated, and it doesn’t require that you go hungry. You’ll enjoy normal-size helpings of meat, poultry, and fish. You’ll also eat eggs, cheese, nuts, and vegetables. Snacks are required. You’ll learn to avoid the bad carbs, like white flour, white sugar, and baked potatoes. Best of all, as you lose weight, you’ll lose that stubborn belly fat first!
Dr. Agatston’s diet has produced consistently dramatic results (8 to 13 pounds lost in the first 2 weeks!) and has become a media sensation in South Florida. Now, you, too, can join the ranks of the fit and fabulous with The South Beach Diet.
How does one analyze a set of real events in order to isolate and define the important variables that appear to be operating? Determine the structure of relationships between the variables? Represent the content and structure of a system of events in the form of a mathematical equation? The student of model-building seeks answers to many such questions that are not adequately dealt with in the existing literature. In this book, eight experts fill an important need by offering a range of approaches to model-building in the behavioral sciences. The papers in this collection reflect the contributors’ common concern to improve the teaching methodology in those fields in which model-building is increasingly the primary focus of research. The insights they provide will be of crucial interest to students of model-building is increasingly the primary focus of research. The insights they provide will be of crucial interest to students of model-building and those who instruct them in the preconditions for constructing workable models of behavior.
