Dow says anyone can learn to manage their weight with this diet. It’s described in The Pen and Paper Diet and available at http://stores.lulu.com/thepenandpaperdiet.
“The Pen and Paper Diet is based on the known fact that your body requires a certain amount of calories to maintain a certain weight. If a person consumes excess calories, then fat is produced and a person’s weight increases,” says Dow.
Dow used a combination of information from The National Academy of Sciences, The Centers for Disease Control, and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).
The diet has been understood by all different types of people with all types of educational levels ranging from a high school dropout (non-GED) to an MD. “It allows you to eat what you want and lose weight,” Dow says.
“You don’t have to eat smaller portions, but you will have to consume less calories during another meal. It’s an easy eating plan to maintain your ideal weight for the rest of your life,” Dow says.
Dow says that the best thing about the diet is that it can be used by everyone, no matter what activity level a person has or their age. “This diet will be great for the many people that are basically required to be sedentary or have low physical activity due to work and family obligations.”
A local Physician and certified Nutritionist, Dr. Nathan Conlee, says the book is “an excellent resource for the public to use who want to keep control of their weight. I do commend you on presenting all the information compiled and ease of application for the general public.”
“In my opinion, the book reveals the secrets of other successful weight loss programs like Jenny Craig(R), Weight Watchers(R), and Nutrisystem(R),” says Dow. “The difference is that you only have to buy the book for lifelong reference and you are given the tools to control your weight. The book is all about putting weight management skills into your hands.”
An expanded edition is intended for health professionals and has calorie requirement calculations for males and females from the ages of 19 to 84. A US Spanish Edition and a generic international English edition (Metric Edition) have also been published.
The Pen and Paper Diet, $14.95 (expanded edition, $39.95) is available at http://stores.lulu.com/thepenandpaperdiet and will be available in bookstores and other online retailers soon.
