When it comes to diets, Americans want two things: ease of use and results. "The Diet Detective's"
"All-American Diet" gives readers exactly what they need to lose weight without recipes, cooking, or calorie counting. Diet Detective Charles Platkin has done all the complicated nutrition math in advance, so readers merely pick and choose their meal plan from thousands of photos of regular foods available at their local stores and favorite chain restaurants.

Significantly less expensive, more accessible, and infinitely more practical than convenience eating
programs like Jenny Craig or NutriSystem, "The Diet Detective's All-American Diet" operates according to the same proven principles of portion control, behavior change, and proper nutrition for effective weight loss. The book gives readers a mix-and-match, Build-a-Meal program that shows them how to pick their breakfast, lunch, dinner, or snack from lists of thousands of popular brand-name foods available anywhere. It's that simple: Readers can simply go to the supermarket and start shedding pounds.
