Dr. Shapiro's Picture Perfect Weight Loss The Visual Program for Permanent Weight Loss
by Howard M. Shapiro
Hardcover: Apr 2000,
Paperback: May 2001,
Dr. Shapiro has been featured in the New York Times, New York Daily News, New Woman and Vogue, because he has helped hundreds of celebrity, executive, and model clients successfully lose weight. In 1998, he designed a weight-loss program the New York Police Department that was so successful, he is now creating a program for the Fire Department.
Dr. Shapiro believes that many people with weight problems are visually motivated. With this in mind, he created an innovative diet book that utilizes more than 170 full-color photographs of food equations. On each page spread, readers actually see what they are tempted to eat. Next to this is an abundance of alternative options-for the same total calories. With only a fraction of the choices from the second column, a dieter will be completely sated-and will have consumed fewer calories. Nothing is forbidden-dieters can even eat restaurant and airplane food! Without memorizing complicated lists or counting calories, Dr. Shapiro's images leave a lasting impact, allowing dieters to make intelligent food choices for a lifetime.
Don Mauer, author of Lean and Lovin' It and A Guy's Guide to Great Eating
Using full-page color pictures comparing foods, serving size by serving size, Dr. Shapiro showed me how to dine like a king, yet consume the calories of a pauper.
