A blueprint for building a healthy attitude toward food and exercise.” —San Francisco Chronicle“A perfect, slim (and slimming) read for dieters and bon vivants alike.”—Marie Claire“It’s hard not to be enlivened by a [weight-control] book that celebrates both chocolate and bread, and espouses such wisdom as ‘Life without pasta?
