New e-book Features Affordable, Convenient Diet Plan

A complete, healthy common sense/cents diet plan anyone can use - for just $2.99

Two leading weight loss experts, Susan Burke March, Registered Dietitian/Author/Consultant, and John LaRosa, a leading 22-year analyst of the weight loss market, have co-authored a new 115-page e-book entitled: The Common Cent$ Diet For The Busy Girl: Simple Do-it-Yourself Weight Loss.

Healthy weight-seekers can choose from hundreds of weight loss programs and products to choose from – each claiming to have “the secret” to easy and quick weight loss. Consumers have seen it all—from the most ridiculous fad diets to mail order pills and potions, to infomercials, to multi-level marking distributors--you name it.

The authors questioned why many of these weight loss programs are so complicated, cumbersome and expensive, and are not sustainable over the long term. Dieters know that, and have tried dozens of plans and diet books, each with their own twist on nutrition and sometimes improper balance of fat, protein and carbs.

It doesn’t have to be this way. The authors show consumers how to lose weight with an easy program that might otherwise cost hundreds of dollars, complete with website support, for just $2.99. There IS a simpler and less expensive “diet” plan or lifestyle one can choose, as revealed in The Common Cent$ Diet.

Frozen entrees have come a long way since the TV dinners of the 1960s, but not all are created equal in terms of nutrition and taste. The authors based this plan on “healthy” brands that are lower in sodium and calories, yet taste great. All can be prepared in 6 minutes or less, making this program perfect for working women.

The authors show dieters how to choose from popular healthy food brands, including: Weight Watchers, Lean Cuisine, Healthy Choice, Kashi, Amy’s, and more. This flexible plan includes a customizable fresh breakfast, plus lunch, dinner and snacks each day. Dieters get their own exercise program as well—an important factor in healthy weight loss.

This regular healthy diet menu contains no more than 2000 mg of sodium/day and the lower-sodium plan limits it to 1500 mg/day – much lower than the government-recommended maximum of 2200 mg/day.

Recent research shows that 80% of dieters want to lose weight on their own. With no fees required of any kind – ever – this home-based, personalized, convenient and affordable diet plan provides safe, nutritionally balanced weight loss. The plan can be used indefinitely, with weight loss of 1-2 pounds per week…without feeling deprived or depleting one’s pocketbook.

“Common sense, and common cents! Besides convenience, and portion control, a frozen entrée menu plan means easily budgeting one's diet and having some left over for treats such as a new pair of running shoes or a spa visit,” according to the authors.
