The secret is out: Eating low-fat, low-calorie foods doesn't automatically equate to low numbers on the scale. However, by focusing on foods that keep the metabolism high and the body healthy, automatic weight loss is the result! And in this creative collection, the Bikini Chef Susan Irby shows dieters they don't need to eat wacky foods or sacrifice flavor to reach their goal. She serves up mouthwatering recipes you can whip up while you trim down, including:
- Polenta Blueberry Pancakes

- Jalapeno Salsa
- Pork Tenderloin with Pomegranate and Onion Marmalade
