Stay Slim the Italian Way is written by a surgeon specializing in the treatment of the morbidly obese. He found in his practice that many of his patients, while overweight, did not meet the criteria for gastric bypass surgical procedures. So to help those patients, he developed a diet program based on food he was familiar with from his native Italy. His patients responded--some losing over 20 pounds the first month. Anyone wanting to lose 25 to 30 pounds, while enjoying a variety of wholesome foods, is a candidate for The Italian Way. "Eating should be a pleasure," the author says. "But 'Americanized' Italian food is not on the menu," he adds. "Traditional Italian dishes, while tasty, are not fat laden and rich in sauces." For that reason, Dr. Frezza includes a section on recipes and food preparation tips.
