The title of Swiss author Romy Dollé's, Fruit Belly, refers to abdominal bloat often accompanied by digestive distress; a common result of some basic dietary misconceptions in many fast-track, low-fat, weight loss plans. With well-defined, easy to ingest information about how the body actually breaks down and distributes fats and nutrients, Fruit Belly provides a clear 4-Day Quick Fix plan to not only relieve any existing abdominal distress, but help re-set the metabolism and reawaken the body's natural desire for the kinds of realfood it wants and needs to function at its best - while still losing unwanted pounds.
Fruit Belly outlines the fundamental advantages of combining a Primal/paleo style diet with a well-rounded exercise routine for a balanced, non-aggressive approach to weight loss that's suitable to even the busiest modern lifestyle. The book's 4-Day Quick Fix program provides menu guidelines for breakfast, lunch, and dinner (including between meal snacks!) and lots of quick and tasty recipes with affordable and easily accessible ingredients. Common misconceptions about the distribution of fat and muscle weight are also addressed, and a photo-illustrated roster of simple core-strengthening stretches and exercises that can be done almost anywhere is included.
Moreover, the book explains in basic terms and beautiful graphics how the human body digests and distributes the nutrients in the foods we eat; how our metabolism becomes quickly and chronically addicted to sugar (which includes fruit and carbohydrates); and the bio-chemical connection between mind and body that drives our sense of hunger and satiety. Fruit Belly provides a comprehensive and holistic solution to counter the crash-course weight loss approach - and puts you back on the path to a healthful and more energizing "non-diet" diet.

Romy Dollé is an entrepreneur, author, devoted mother, and MBA wielding, Swiss-certified banking specialist. She grew up in a small mountain village in Switzerland, where the food was picked fresh, collected locally, and left entirely un-adulterated. Growing up, she dreamed of traveling the world and sought the financial freedom to do so. This brought her to the city, where she excelled in a high-power career that helped make her dreams a reality. But during all the hustle and bustle of city life, she noticed a marked decline in her health, mood, and overall wellbeing. This prompted her to re-explore her childhood roots, which provided natural answers and antidotes to her new found problems.
Today, Romy works with her husband Dave Dollé to teach others about the values of eating clean, staying active, and living simply. Dave is high profile fitness expert, trainer, speaker, and a former international caliber track star. He is still the Swiss record holder at 100 meters.
