Okay, a while back I was skeptical of Seth Roberts’ new book, The Shangri-La Diet: The No-Hunger, Eat Anything Weight Loss Plan. Most diets don’t work, and this one sounded particularly oversold. Lots of folks emailed that they like it, though, and Helen was interested, so we decided to look him up and see what he had to say about it. Can you really lose weight with a little bit of sugar-water or olive oil?
It’s an interesting approach — though my two-week test-drive hasn’t seemed to do much — and he has some useful thoughts on societal attitudes and behaviors regarding food and fatness in general. Plus, Helen — a Weight Watchers expert — has some insights of her own.
