And after you’ve clicked through the info-packed Fashion Flash, check out The Small Change Diet ( Gallery Books), a book from one of my favorite nutritionists, Teri Gans. Most diet guides offer fairly standard advice – eat more fruits and veggies, avoid potato chips and brownies while providing menus that feature kale, quinoa and fat-free cheese slices. All good advice, but in real time try to find kale and quinoa in your local diner and burger spot. What makes Teri so different is that she explains how to meet established nutritional goals despite over packed schedules and limited restaurant food choices. For example, rather than just saying you have to eat low fat chicken, she provides no less than 8 different ways to cut the fat levels of chicken both at home and in restaurants. And she does this with dozens of different foods. Success or failure of a diet often depends on the small hidden calories that add up. The Small Change Diet identifies all those small areas where you can improve your diet outcome.
