Sounds pretty boring. Today, we are talking with Dr. Seth Roberts, the author of a href=”http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/redirect?link_code=as2path=ASIN/0399153640tag=wwwviolentkicomcamp=1789creative=9325″The Shangri-La Diet,/aimg src=”http://www.assoc-amazon.com/e/ir?t=wwwviolentkicoml=as2o=1a=0399153640″ width=”1″ height=”1″ border=”0″ alt=”” style=”border:none !important; margin:0px !important;” / who actually tells you to drink sugar water and eat olive oil in order to lose weight. Sound impossible? Not so, says Dr. Roberts, a psychology professor at the University of California at Berkeley. Listen to Dr. Roberts tell us about his self-experimentation with his own diet and how he and many others in the blogosphere have lost the weight for good.
