Dumping the fake stuff and relishing real food will make you feel better, help you drop pounds, and most importantly, take all the fear out of what you eat. Does that sound too good to be true? It isn't--despite the fact that lately we've given up ripe vegetables for the canned stuff; tossed out sweet, tart orange juice for pasteurized concentrate; traded fresh fish for boil-in-a-bag dinners; and replaced real desserts with supersweet snacks that make us feel ridiculously overfed but definitely disappointed. The result? Most of us are overweight or obese--or heading that way; more and more of us suffer from diabetes, clogged arteries, and even bad knees. We eat too much of the fake stuff, yet we're still hungry. And not satisfied.

Who hasn't tried to change all that? Who hasn't walked into a supermarket and thought, I'm going to eat better from now on ? So you load your cart with whole-grain crackers, fish fillets, and asparagus. Sure, you have a few barely satisfying meals before you think, Hey, life's too short for this! And soon enough, you're back to square one. For real change, you need a real plan. It's in your hands.

Real Food Has Curves is a fun and ultimately rewarding seven-step journey to rediscover the basic pleasure of fresh, well-prepared natural ingredients: curvy, voluptuous, juicy, sweet, savory. And yes, scrumptious, too. In these simple steps--each with its own easy, delicious recipes--you'll learn to become a better shopper, savor your meals, and eat your way to a better you. Yes, you'll drop pounds. But you won't be counting calories. Instead, you'll learn to celebrate the abundance all around. It's time to realize that food is not the enemy but a life-sustaining gift. It's time to get off the processed and packaged merry-go-round. It's time to be satisfied, nourished, thinner, and above all, happier. It's time for real food.

Shape your waist, rediscover real food, and find new pleasure in every meal as Bruce Weinstein and Mark Scarbrough teach you how to:

* Eat to be satisfied

* Recognize the fake and kick it to the curb

* Learn to relish the big flavors you'd forgotten

* Get healthier and thinner

* Save money and time in your food budget

* Decode the lies of deprivation diets

* Relish every minute, every bite, and all of life

I am a well seasoned Red Seal Cook with many years of culinary experience. Yet upon reading Lobsters Scream When You Boil Them, another of Weinstein' s collaborations, I find myself educated (these guys really know their stuff!), well entertained and laughing out loud while my dear cat Samson (a big gentle giant) looks on. So I am really looking forward to more of his work. And so, I think, would you too.
