9780060737382: The L.A. Shape Diet: The 14-Day Total Weight Loss Plan

From one of today's most respected diet and nutrition experts: a 14–day weight loss plan designed to help you change your shape for life using a new breakthrough personalized protein prescription that has worked for thousands of his patients.

Dr. David Heber's groundbreaking book What Color Is Your Diet? introduced us to the Color Code–building a healthy diet based on colorful fruits and vegetables. His new book, The LA Shape Diet, combines the sound nutritional basis of the Color Code with his newest research from the UCLA Center for Nutrition, which shows you how to analyse your body shape, personal protein needs, and metabolism and not only lose weight–but also change your body shape. This has major appeal to the millions of Americans who may be able to lose weight but are still dissatisfied with the look of their bodies–and end up gaining the weight back anyway.

Dr. Heber maintains that everyone is born with a particular shape and that this shape makes a huge difference in how you should approach weight loss. Dr. Heber teaches the difference between the shape you can change and the shape you cannot, and how to do this with the right amount of dietary protein. Based on over 3500 measurements made by his researchers at UCLA, Dr. Heber has come up with tables that estimate how much protein you need in your diet at a given height and weight, and how many calories you should consume every day. Then Dr. Heber helps you build your own ideal diet, starting with protein, then 7 colorful servings of fruits and vegetables (providing 25 grams of filling fiber), and finally whole grains. Dr. Heber explains not only glycemic index (how fast blood sugar goes up) but glycemic load (glycemic index + how much carbohydrate a food provides), which determines how a particular food affects the overall diet. He groups foods into four tables to make it easy for readers to navigate their dinner table.

In a world of dietary fads and "one size fits all" pseudo–miracle diets, The LA Shape Diet is the most effective, easy–to–follow, scientifically sound dietary plan you'll find.

About the Author:

David Heber, M.D., PH.D., is at the cutting edge of medical research, investigating how nutrition and genes

From Publishers Weekly:

The author of What Color is Your Diet?, Heber has an impressive resume: founding director of the UCLA Center for Human Nutrition, professor of medicine and public health, and the founding chief of the Division of Clinical Nutrition in the Department of Medicine at UCLA. If his previous book was based on the colors of visually appealing fruits and vegetables, his follow-up continues to take looks into account—this time of actual dieters. Proceeding from the extremely L.A.-friendly premise that "your personal shape determines a desirable amount and location of body fat for health and your happiness," Heber offers Body Mass Index tables for figuring out what type one is ("sarcopenic"? "over muscular overweight"?) and what one’s corresponding protein intake should be. The "14-Day" part of the plan recommends that the first week’s meals consist of "Shake-Shake-Meal!," or protein-enhanced shakes for breakfast and lunch, and a simple dinner of some lean fish or fowl and salad. Along the way, Heber tells readers "what is wrong with ‘No-Carb’ diets once and for all." He recommends a protein intake of "twice what is now recommended by government advisory groups," for which there are plenty of shake and supplement variations, described in an upbeat if somewhat brief (but never terse) manner. Recipes and exercise regimes round things out. Carefully grounded in research and in his experience treating obesity and nutrition issues, Heber’s plan is a protein-enhanced Atkins alternative that may particularly appeal to vegetarians.
