As a master baker, painter, and woodworker, Stephen Lanzalotta has used the mathematical principles of The Golden Ratio for more than 30 years. His realization that this seemingly magic formula held the secret to optimal health and weight loss led him to apply it to his own diet and the menu at his popular cafe. The result was great weight-loss success. Thus was born THE DIET CODE, a revolutionary Mediterranean-style program that makes each meal as easy as 1-2-3 (1 part grain, 2 parts protein, 3 parts vegetable/fruit). Readers will discover how to balance their plate by The Golden Ratio of carbs, protein, and fat to boost metabolism and spark weight loss. Combining detailed menu plans and mouthwatering recipes, as well as tips on nutrition and healthy eating, this is a unique diet plan for sure-fire weight loss.
