Translating Medical-Speak into Common Everyday Language: 'A Novel Diet' by

Nikki Lang, MD

PHILADELPHIA, June 3 /PRNewswire/ --

"I have never seen a more solid, practical and realistic approach to weight control." -- Nutritionist, Barbara Porcelli, RD, LDN

Nikki Lang, MD, announced today the release of "A Novel Diet," published by iUniverse, Inc., which offers a unique approach to the eating disorder of obesity. Unlike other diet books, "A Novel Diet" doesn't tell you what to eat and pad its pages with recipes and schedules. Instead, it takes the unusual approach of utilizing fiction to teach you how to approach food and understand the various principles at work behind the most popular fad diets.

Thirty-two-year-old Cheryl is tired of being overweight, and she's finally gathered the courage to do something about it. But she worries about sacrificing her favorite foods or committing to the latest fad diet only to fail miserably.

Sound familiar? Cheryl represents anyone who has struggled to maintain health and sanity while losing weight and offers a voice to everyone engaged in the ongoing battle to take off -- and keep off -- unwanted pounds. Through the character of Cheryl, Dr. Lang delivers sound and sensible principles, tips, and advice on losing weight and refreshingly easy-to-implement diet, exercise, and lifestyle adjustments that will have you well on your way to better health.

In this down-to-earth weight-loss guide, Dr. Lang reveals the surprising answers to these and many other frequently asked questions:

-- How is breakfast vital to shedding pounds?

-- Why do more meals increase weight-loss?

-- Why do people who weigh more cook less?

-- Which types of exercise are crucial for weight-loss?

"I recently heard another physician state on a national TV show that most people know what to do, they just don't do it," states Dr. Lang, "It was an incredibly naive statement. There is so much information and misinformation in the media that most people don't know what to do, and it's time for them to learn how to sort through all the hype and hogwash and learn the real facts." Because "A Novel Diet" is an entertaining novel, it teaches rather painlessly all the principles of weight-loss so that one can create a healthy eating plan that is tailored to one's own palate as well as a twenty-first century lifestyle. Many popular fad diets actually make losing weight and keeping it off more difficult. Learn how and why not to fall into that weight-loss trap.

The author, Nikki Lang, MD, has been named one of the best family physicians in the United States by Ladies Home Journal, Town and Country, and Top Doctors. She's been a successful practitioner in Society Hill, Philadelphia for over twenty-seven years.

"A Novel Diet" is the culmination of twenty-seven years of experience teaching patients and gleaning the most effective methods to accomplish that task.
