Gaiseric Barbari's A Casual Diet offers a refreshing approach to dieting that is simple, easy to maintain, and effective.
This diet is based on three principles. The first is to limit the animal protein-milk, meat, eggs-in your food intake. The second is to find a way of eating less that you can maintain for life. And the third is to do some moderate exercise.
Barbari's review of the research supporting these principles is thorough but presented in a simple, direct way that appeals to the reader.
Unlike many diet books there are no recipes here. Barbari can't cook but he does not see this as any hindrance to adopting a healthy diet. He differs from many diet authors in giving strong support to frozen meals and vegetables, which he feels can be as nutritious as anything the gourmet diet chef may prepare.
This is a short book on dieting that introduces new perspectives on this most important topic. It sets out an approach not only to losing weight, but also to living a longer and better life.
Everything you ever wanted to know about starting out (or over) on a shoestring. This book covers everything from clothing and personal items to furniture, appliances and transportation with everything in-between.
The author draws from personal experience to show others that you CAN start out (or over) with very little and you CAN make a success of the endeavor. You don't have to suffer, but you do have to have certain basic items. This book takes the guesswork out of what you will need.
