A compelling argument for simple moderation
Lanzalotta's ideas about food
are refreshingly sound. Too often, diet book recipes are created with a
distinct disinterest in taste, featuring no-fat this,
I-can't-believe-it's-not that, and unfortunate names like 'Mashed Potato
Surprise.' Lanzalotta is instead passionate about real food, and his
dishes, from Sardinian Chickpea Salad to Polenta Muffins, are thoughtful,
well-seasoned and tasty. If the Renaissance Man is your ideal and giving
up bread seems an insane step you could do a lot worse than following the
suggestions in The Diet Code.

The diet's inherent principle is sound: Based on what is called the Golden
Ratio, it uses proven mathematics to determine portion size and, along with
it, content... Flip through the pages of The Diet Code and look for some
very appealing -- and easy to make -- recipes, from creamy squash soup to
rustic rolls, from pasta with sardines to baked eggs with beans and salsa.
