Are you looking for a book that can help you learn about what lifestyle changes can help you lose weight and keep it off? If so, The New Sonoma Diet: Trimmer Waist, More Energy in Just 10 Days by Connie Guttersen, R.D., Ph.D. might be exactly what you need.

A follow-up to 2005’s The Sonoma Diet , the new edition of the book has been completely updated, making it an excellent resource for people who are looking for an introduction to the Sonoma diet lifestyle as well as for those who have already experienced positive results from following the Sonoma way of eating.

“I decided that a one-and-done diet book was not the way to go,” says Guttersen. “This revised version of the original incorporates the latest nutrition science, which makes the Sonoma way an even more effective tool for weight-loss. Other benefits from following the plan include reducing risk for inflammation, heart disease, arthritis, diabetes and also providing more energy throughout each day.”

About The New Sonoma Diet

The New Sonoma Diet is much more than a typical diet book. The ideas behind the Sonoma way of eating and the books that bear the diet’s name are based on Dr. Gutterson’s extensive research and experience working as a culinary professional. Rather than giving readers strict lists of exactly what to eat when, the Sonoma diet focuses on changing how people think about food so they can learn how to make the lifestyle changes and healthful food choices necessary for lasting weight loss.

The book provides extensive information about diet, health and the power foods that are essential to healthy eating. The book is also designed to teach readers how to incorporate appropriate cooking techniques and ingredients into their own kitchens. There are many delicious recipes in the book that make it easy for even novice home cooks to see just how easy it can be to prepare tasty meals that can fit in with weight loss efforts. The recipes feature healthful selections like lean meat, fish, vegetables, fruit, whole grains and nuts.

Eating right isn’t the only message central to The New Sonoma Diet . The book also focuses on the importance of exercise, providing readers with suggestions for incorporating different types of exercise into their lifestyles. Mindfulness is also discussed as an important element of a healthful lifestyle.

Benefits of The Sonoma Diet

When you follow the Sonoma diet, you won’t have to count calories or measure ingredients. Instead, you’ll learn what you need to know about nutrition science and the relationship between food choices and weight as well how making healthful dining decisions can reduce your chances of developing serious illnesses like heart disease, diabetes and more. You’ll learn how to develop a food philosophy that can form the basis of a healthful lifestyle that will enable you to accomplish your weight loss and health promotion goals.
