The Diet Dictionary
Dieting became something of an obsession in the latter part of the 20th century especially among younger, Western females. The influence of the media and the prevalence of Hollywood type images of young slim women prompted many to try to emulate them and savvy entrepreneurs were quick to pick up on the commercial potential of this. Soon all sorts of diets were flooding the market - and the trend continues to this day. This book looks at a range of these diets - some old some new; all claiming to lose you weight and make you look terrific. Many of them won't live up to their claims but we present a (hopefully) balanced view so you can make up your own mind and use the information to decide which, if any, you want to try. Everyone is different and one concept might work for one person and not another. Good luck - we hope you find this useful and enjoyable whatever route you decide to follow.
