Now this is a diet I can get on board with: cocktails and gourmet food! I am sure the title alone would make anyone pick up this book. So what is the magic secret? Sadly, this isn’t magic. This is actually a diet that restricts carbs. (You knew it had to be too good to be true.) As long as you restrict your carb intake to less than 60 grams, you should be good to go. I guess this is a precursor to Atkins by a few years. Say goodbye to bread and desserts. The drinking portion of this program is limited to liquor in small amounts and is barely addressed in the book. The gourmet aspect is also a bit disappointing. Evidently, the authors are defining gourmet generously. Nothing particularly exciting or earth shattering; it is basically regular fare minus carbs or sugar.
I guess you better embrace the booze, because you can say goodbye to potatoes, pasta, or sugar.
