Product Description and Author Information

About the Book


Most diets are about one thing: restricting calories. And while it’s true that cutting calories can be a component of weight loss, not all calories are created equal. The secret to fast, lasting weight loss isn’t how much you eat—it’s what you eat.

Eating high-quality, whole foods causes the body to burn fat and lose weight, while eating low-quality, processed foods causes the body to store fat and gain weight. A diet rich in real, unprocessed foods is a satisfying way to lose weight for people who love to eat. Because not only does it offer the vitamins and nutrients your body needs to fuel your metabolism, it also allows you to eat unlimited quantities of delicious, satisfying foods. Some whole foods even offer what is known as a “thermogenic effect”—boosting the rate at which your body burns calories. In short: eating the right foods can have a negative calorie effect!

In The Negative Calorie Diet, #1 New York Times bestselling author, chef, and healthy-living expert Rocco DiSpirito identifies the top ten negative calorie foods for rapid weight loss and offers mouth-watering recipes for making negative calorie meals at home. Complete with a weight-loss kickoff cleanse, which includes easy and filling smoothies; recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, and desserts; meal plans; grocery shopping lists; and even a guide to dining out, The Negative Calorie Diet will help readers lose up to ten pounds in ten days—and build healthy habits that will last a lifetime.

So go ahead—enjoy your favorite pasta, steak, and even cake by swapping in the ten negative calorie foods that will ramp up your metabolism and speed up your weight loss. It’s that easy! No calorie counting required—just plenty of real food to get real results.
