When Bill Murray, Carrie Fisher, Madeleine Stowe, Leeza Gibbons, Kate Jackson, and other health-conscious stars have questions about their diets, they know who to call: nutrition consultant Yolanda Bergman. Now Yolanda gives you her number--Diet 911.

There's hardly a packaged food or diet product that Yolanda Bergman hasn't investigated, a type of restaurant menu she hasn't analyzed, or a recipe she hasn't reworked to help her celebrity clients get leaner and healthier. But unlike many diet gurus, she wants them, and you, to start doing something extraordinary. She wants you to enjoy food--indulge during the holidays, nurture yourself when you're blue, treat yourself to chocolate, cheese, bread, and wine...without getting fat or sacrificing your health.

In Diet 911, Yolanda gives you the secrets to a slimmer, fitter you--food you will love and recipes that will keep you coming back for more. You'll learn what new products are good for you and which you should leave on the supermarket shelf. And you'll find 265 delicious recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks that contain maximum nutrition and natural ingredients that are as quick and easy to prepare as a frozen microwave dinner.

For instance, there's Luke's Adobe Chicken (210 calories and 2.4 fat grams); Overnight Drenched French Toast with Cinnamon Syrup (377 calories and 3.5 fat grams); and Sweet Potato Chili (321 calories and 1.5 fat grams). And don't miss Roasted Tarragon Asparagus, Sake Cilantro Chicken, Pasta in a Rage, Garden Pizza, Chocolate Cheesecake, and Skinny Kisses--real chocolate kisses with just 0.2 fat grams each!

Whether you're eating in or ordering out, going to a five-star restaurant or your favorite local eatery, Yolanda gives you the answers you need to make smart, healthy choices without sacrificing your joy of eating. You don't have to feel overwhelmed by the prospect of slimming down or starting another diet. In Diet 911, Yolanda does all the work for you. She shows you how to take back control of the food in your life, eat happily, and stay fit, by sharing her proven secrets of living thin and loving it. And it's so easy, you'll want to start today! Yolanda Bergman, diet consultant to the stars and owner of a home-delivery gourmet health-food service in Hollywood, gives a no-nonsense, no quick-fix philosophy to weight control. It's a lifetime of exercise, she writes, and eating a nutritious, low-fat diet--but that doesn't mean denying yourself tasty food. Bergman provides 265 easy-to-prepare, gourmet recipes to make weight control that much easier. She includes foods such as Skinny Kisses (low-fat chocolate kisses) and Sicilian Chicken. In a bit of name-dropping, Bergman lists Nolina's Turkey Chili and Tandori Shrimp and Scallop Kabobs as two of television talk-show host Leeza Gibbons's favorites. The recipes are so simple, Bergman calls many of them "no-brainers."

Author of the bestselling Food Cop, Bergman wrote Diet 911 to serve as the reader's "emergency help line," not as an encyclopedic lesson in fitness and nutrition. "This help line is here to give you answers, not more lectures on things you already know about how to get thin and stay healthy." She ends with a short chapter, "The Bottom Line: What It Takes to Lose Weight Once and for All," that sketches out a six-week plan and lists "Eleven Absolutes for Everybody." Although one of the "absolutes" is "move, move, move," the book isn't meant to provide a full-fledged fitness program. Instead, Diet 911 motivates with upbeat words and those 265 gourmet recipes.
