Fattening Food Makeover
Chinese Takeaway

Contrary to popular belief, you don't have to give up your favorite foods to lose weight. The Doctors shows you how making small changes to your meals can significantly reduce the number of calories you consume!

400 Calorie Fix Prevention's new book, the 400 Calorie Fix , offers an easy-to-follow weight-loss plan that won't leave you feeling hungry.

"What I wanted to do was show people how to see the world through the 400-calorie lens," editor-in-chief Liz Vaccariello says. "So no matter where you are, whether you're cooking at home, standing at a Starbucks, at a diner, at a movie theater or at a party, you can choose a 400-calorie meal."

The premise of the book is that you should eat four 400-calorie meals a day, and you will see the weight melt off. The book offers tips and tricks, recipes and visual aides to help guide weight loss. "The idea is you're not counting calories," Liz says, "you are controlling them.

"People don't understand portions, they're intimidated by calories, and that's what the idea of the 400 Calorie Fix is, to teach you how to eyeball portions," Liz adds.

The book also has a feature called the "Meal Wheel," which shows you how to divide your plate in the healthiest way!

"The idea is not to eliminate entire food groups, not to eliminate entire foods," Liz says. "No diet is going to work unless you can eat with your family and friends, if you can eat at home, if you can eat out."

From Chinese food to an all-you-can-eat buffet, The Doctors and Liz demonstrate what you can eat while following the 400 Calorie Fix.
