F.A.T. Balance Diet is a new book on the market to help us lose weight. It tells us all the things we already know but can’t seem to follow...most likely because we prefer sweets to self-discipline. The humor and cartoon characters make this particular diet book an upbeat, fun read while conveying its message. Does it tell us anything new? Not to me, but perhaps its presentation will appeal to you, and that’s all that really matters. It is divided into ten chapters with personal names to represent the subject matter as indicated above, plus fifty easy recipes. If you’re looking for an upbeat, well-organized diet, this may be the one for you.
