The Monterey Diet™– Seven Steps Worth Taking

By A. H. Kryger, MD. DMD.  (239) Pages

Thousands of books are written about how to lose weight. Back in 2003, Arthur Agatston, a cardiologist, wrote a bestseller that encouraged healthy eating by emphasizing three stages incorporating good fat and good carbohydrates as The South Beach Diet. A 2007 bestseller entitled, Skinny Bitch, by Kim Barnouin, made some great points for women wanting their figures back after pregnancy. Needless to say there are countless others, but this is not your typical diet book.
