Product Description

From Amazon

Years ago, Suzanne Somers lost the chance to appear on a hit television series because she was "too chunky." That missed opportunity started her on a "diet roller coaster," trying all kinds of diets. Now Somers believes that diets and deprivation do not help people lose weight in the long-term. In Eat Great, Lose Weight, she explains the food-combining plan she calls "Somersizing": eliminate "funky foods" such as sugar ("my body's greatest enemy") and white flour; eat fruits alone on an empty stomach; eat proteins and fats with vegetables and without carbohydrates; eat carbohydrates with vegetables and without fat.

Sommers presents 113 recipes that certainly don't resemble a traditional diet and might make a weight-loss expert's hair curl, such as Crispy Fried Eggplant and Mozzarella Finger Sandwiches, Flourless Cheese Souffle (with butter, eggs, cream cheese, and Gruyère cheese), and Grilled Pepper Steak with Herb Butter (trim the fat from the meat, but add both butter and olive oil). There's no nutritional breakdown, so you can't count fat or calories. Somers admits that "many experts will argue that food combining is a myth," but she says it works for her, and she credits it with trimming her down to 116 pounds, even though she eats "more than ever." --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From Library Journal

It has been argued that one can lose weight and still eat large amounts of foods if they are in the proper combination and proportion and are eaten in conjunction with an exercise program. These two books explore this concept with slightly different interpretations. In addition to recommending larger amounts of complex carbohydrates with little or no fat and sugar, actress Somers (Wednesday's Child, LJ 8/92) emphasizes that eating the right combinations (and avoiding the wrong ones) promotes efficient digestion. Vedral, the author of a number of exercise books (e.g., Top Shape, Warner, 1995), proposes a simple modification of the USDA's Food Pyramid, recommending that low-calorie/high-density foods be eaten frequently to avoid the hunger pangs that sabotage many diets. Both books include extensive menus, recipes, and basic workout plans. Either or both would be a good purchase for public libraries. [Somers's book was previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 9/1/96.]?Susan B.

5.0 out of 5 stars Life Changing Book! March 28 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I just didn't believe it could be true, which is why I had this book in my closet for three years following the time I purchased it. I was scared of it. Scared I could never eat like that and lose weight. Surely, it wouldn't work for me, I thought. For some lucky folks, it may, I believed, but not for me. Finally, in desperation, I pulled out my copy a month ago and have been following it faithfully ever since. I have lost 28 pounds since I began and I CAN'T BELIEVE IT! This is the most amazing program, thing, idea, way of eating, I have ever heard of. I am a woman who has fought her weight all of her life! I have had times in my life when I was thin, yes, and I literally starved myself to get and stay there. Well, food is life and you can only white knuckle is so long before you give in and blow it. I have lost over 80 pounds three times in my life and I have always gained it back. I have cried myself to sleep for the past 30 years asking God for an answer, I just wanted to be normal, a normal person, able to eat and not balloon out. Obesity is a terrible disease and those who suffer from it are treated with such contempt by our society. I won't go into too much about Suzannes program itself as there is plently of information out there, check out [...] All I can tell is that this program has worked for me and I am thrilled! This is NOT A DIET, I know it sounds cliche', but it is true, this really is a way of life, a wonderful, enjoyable, tasty, rich, way of eating and living. I can do this forever! I eat more now than I have ever eaten before in the past, even at my heaviest!!! This book was the answer to my prayers! I am free, I know, I will never be fat again! I PROMISE THIS PROGRAM IS LIKE NOTHING YOU HAVE EVER TRIED BEFORE....LIFE CHANGING! POWERFUL! AN ANSWERD PRAYER!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the 2nd and 3rd books April 3 2002
This is the first of the three "Somersize" books. It explains the program in the most detail, but honestly its a very boring read and the recipes are not practicle. I found the second book "Get Skinny on Fabulous Food" to be much more interesting and the recipes are things that I actual make (the Chinese Chicken Salad is excellent). The second book also explains the basics of the plan, but in a more condensed form so you don't have to read a bunch of in depth explanation like you do in "Eat Great, Lose Weight". If you haven't read any of the books and are looking for the *best* of the three then I wouldn't recommend this one. Go with "Get Skinny" or the newer "Eat, Cheat and Melt the fat away".

There is not much to add since there are already quite a few reviews already listed on this site, but I just wanted to add one thing... a really important benefit. This is a fantastic program for anyone who wants to loose weight, or just feel healthier and more energetic, but it is also a program that actually works for people who are or have been struggling with eating disorders. I have had problems with both anorexia and bulimia for a number of years in the past and have always had an odd relationship with food. Although I have been "healthy" for a few years now (it's kind of like having been an alcoholic, you're never cured you just add to the time you are in recovery...). Every time I approach a diet of any kind to loose weight, all the bad memories and bad habits are threatening to return plus my body completely shuts down and goes into starvation mode hanging on to every tiny bit of food you allow yourself to consume. The result is that you don't loose any weight at all - you're just hungry and depressed!
With Somersizing this is not a problem anymore. I feel like I have finally been "saved"! Being addicted to food (weather it be lack there of or too much of it) is a real problem, in fact it is to some degree even harder than a drug addiction. Food is LEAGAL, and it is EVERYWHERE... and you actually NEED food to survive, unlike drugs... But enough of that... back to Somersizing... The fact that you can eat until you are full you never feel hungry thus eliminating bad flash backs, and since you don't have to eliminate any whole huge food groups (see Atkins for example) you never feel bored or deprived either. It is simply AMAZING! You feel energized, healthy and happy, and your body actually responds like it is supposed to do - by loosing weight!

5.0 out of 5 stars You look marvelous! March 11 2002
This is a wonderful book; it is full of great pictures, excellent recipes, and lots of little anecdotal stories. A lot of people believe that this could not possibly work, and a lot of people are wrong. You will feel better than you have felt in a long time, and you will be eating a greater varitey of food than ever before. If you follow the rules you will lose weight and find yourself again! The rules do force you to think about what you are eating, and this is a good thing. Just that alone should be worth the price of the book: it teaches you to make informed choices, and to get out of an endless cycle of automatic eating. You will find that vegetables really do taste good. I have been discovering all sorts of great ways to fix food, and especially the vegetables. When I was growing up, my mother opened a can and then boiled the poor things to death. A watery grave is not good for anything! Try these recipes and rediscover what good food tastes like, and enjoy yourself. I did find that just by cutting foods that trigger binges, I was eating less at meals automatically. If your insulin levels aren't shooting through the roof, you can't go into a feeding frenzy, and consume more than the entire population of an emerging third world country. You probably will eat more calories automatically, since the book does emphasize eating more fat than most of us thought we could. But in general, you will find that even with more calories and fat, you can still lose weight painlessly. Then wait for your friens (who will be jealous) to say, "You look marvelous darling." Even if they can't imitate Billy Crystal, they will think you look great, And it just might inspire them to do the same.
