Diet. I am not a fan of the word. Diet is all to frequently used in place of "dieting", and as a result seems an austere word with connotations of deprivation. A diet is what what you eat, or how you eat; I strive for a diet high in plants, but lower in refined sugar and saturated fats, and certainly allowing treats. ABalance, variety and moderation are key to my diet. A diet is a way of life surely? Not a temporary quick fix before an important occasion, or after a holiday.

Enter the Food Doctor, Ian Marber, who has written this excellent diet book, giving anyone the tools and knowledge to allow them to eat well, without the need for dieting, and importantly allowing them to break the vicious yo-yoing from weight gain to dieting cycle.

Rather than dieting to lose weight, Ian believes that by eating well all the time, and stopping those hunger pangs that lead to binges, you will lose weight, feel happier, and most importantly eat good food that keeps you satisfied. It is a logical and persuasive argument, and I think one that works.

The book is set out into 3 sections. The first explains the theory, which is basically about keeping your blood glucose levels stable, so you never feel starving hungry and this likely to binge. You can achieve this by eating regular, frequent meals that always combine protein with complex carbohydrates.

The second part is the most interesting for me, and it sets out 50 Food Doctor approved foods and gives interesting recipes & serving suggestions for each one. Recipes are wide and varied, who would feel deprived eating grilled pork chops with sage and mustard sauce or flat bread pizza with vegetables and goat's cheese?

If you are looking for a "diet" book to help you loose weight, I probably wouldn't start with this book. Ian Marber has written lots (and lots and lots) of very good nutrition-based diet books, but this is something wonderful and different. I am someone who is already converted to the low-GI concept and I've read about the science many times, but I've always found the meal suggestions either too prescriptive or too complex and time-consuming for a Mum of two young children.

The key to this book is the format: a kind of Nigel Slater (Tender) arrangement, where the recipes are grouped around 50 beneficial foods. There is one "proper" recipe for each food, but the genius is in the quick suggestions for easy meals and snacks which are under headings "Three simple cooking techniques", "Meal suggestions" and "snack suggestions". The lady credited with the recipes is Carolyn Humphries (although Ian Marber thanks "Carolyn Hughes" for her recipes - which is she?), but I feel like she should at least be co-author - she seems to have the most inexhaustible supply of imaginative and beautiful suggestions, all using healthy ingredients. The only comparison I can make is with Nigella Lawson, because like Nigella she clearly loves food, loves fresh ingredients, and loves cooking.

I only have one small quibble - the foods are grouped into food types (protein and complex carbohydrates), but are not arranged in any order within these groups (alphabetical would have been nice). This means that if you want to find something, you have to resort to the index. Which is fine, and and more than compensated for by the recipes, the photography, and the general quality of the book. If you are past the "why?" of healthy eating, and into the "how?" this is a great way to get to grips with all those ingredients out there which both taste good and are good for you.

Format: Paperback
Probably Marber's eighth or ninth book on healthy eating and weight loss, alongside Gillian McKeith, he's a regular January bookshop table presence.

His books advocate sensible eating plans that re-educate you to eat healthily and prevent weight gain. You won't find suggestions of bizarre seaweed milkshakes in here, Marber is more likely to tell you to snack on a couple of oatcakes with a small amount of cheese and to take nuts and dried fruit to the office instead of falling foul of the nearest vending machine.

The eating plans here follow on from his previous book, "How Not To Get Fat" in which Marber showed how to eat in a way that helps you manage your weight, enjoy your food and keep up your energy for longer and reduce hunger pangs. This new volume starts with the science-y bit about burning food as fuel and goes on to give essential information on 50 healthy foods and ten different meal planners focussing on different ages and lifestyles.

That there is only a recipe on every second or third page is a good thing here, in between there is also nutritional information about different foods with advice about how to cook or prepare them. You get ways to turn them into easy meals, snacks or more detailed recipes that you can eat on a daily basis without gaining weight.

A synopsis of the yogurt chapter:

*Nutritional information about yogurt
*Three simple cooking techniques; dip, curry sauce and marinade or dressing
*Five meal suggestions using yogurt - my personal favourite being tandoori chicken served with a vegetable curry and salad.
