The island of Sicily has historically one of the healthiest diets in the world. Now the flavors and benefits of Sicilian cooking are yours to savor in this weight-loss program. Created by physician Acquista, who has successfully counseled patients on weight management for years, the program starts with a two-week weight-loss stage that includes simple recipes to help you lose eight to ten pounds right away. Dr. Acquista culled his Sicilian mother's recipe box for the most mouthwatering recipes--plus he includes meals from famous chefs at top Italian restaurants, such as Cipriani and Serafina. The Sicilian way of cooking and combining foods means less snacking in between meals, and less temptation to fill up on desserts. Also, a two-week "tough love" stage helps you kick the habit of sugar, junk food, and preservatives.
