Review: Just Tell Me What to Eat by Timothy Harlan, MD

Just Tell Me What to Eat
Timothy Harlan is a practicing New Orleans-based internist. Known as Dr Gourmet, Timothy Harlan grew up with a love for cooking. After opening his first restaurant at the age of twenty-two, he returned back to school and persued a medical degree after dealing with an illness in the family. Over the years he has counseled thousands of individuals searching for weight-loss answers. During those years one thing was apparent, most patients were confused about both how to lose weight and how to eat healthy. The lack of sound information coupled with spread of fad diets exacerbated the problem. Dr Harlan wrote Just Tell Me What to Eat as an answer to the problem.

Just Tell Me What to Eat!: The Delicious 6-Week Weight Loss Plan for the Real World is a medically based weight loss plan that teaches readers how to plan, cook, snack and eat out for long term success. The book offers a practical and achievable solution designed to fit into event the busiest of lifestyles. The book includes specific menus and over fifty delicious recipes that are the foundation for the six-week plan.

Just Tell Me What to Eat is based on three key principles: 1) Eat the highest-quality calories that you can; 2) Eat according to the Mediterranean diet principles; 3) Whenever possible, you should make your own meals. While most books begin with information overload and finish off with, often time boring and unappetizing meal plans, Just Tell Me What to Eat takes a different approach. The book is laid out in an easy-to-follow, easy-to-read manner. With six weeks of meal plans, recipes and shopping lists, one chapter for each week, Dr Harlan takes you through the plan. Each week begins with the dinner menu for the week which also includes a convenience food alternative as well as a restaurant meal alternative. Each day during the six weeks you will learn not only how to cook great food but the benefits and science behind the food. You will learn a little bit each day not only from Dr. Tim's perspective but also from Chef Tim's perspective. By the end of the six weeks you will have learned about quality calories, how to lose weight, why you lose weight, how to keep it off and stay healthy going forward all in small, manageable daily bites.

Just Tell Me What to Eat!: The Delicious 6-Week Weight Loss Plan for the Real World is a no-nonsense, no gimmicks approach to eating right designed to help you lose weight effectively and permanently. The book is full of tips, menus, food alternatives and useful information about the benefits and science of food. Dr Harlan is not only a board-certified physician but his love for food combined with his fact-based approach to the kitchen sets him and his work apart. He provides a solution and an exact prescription of what to eat, how to cook it and best of all why eating great food is the best health decision you can make.
