If you think you've failed on every diet you've ever tried, think again: The diet failed, you didn't. Now it's time to forget all those weight-loss cliches and listen to the truth:

  • Skipping breakfast can be healthy
  • Certain fruits instantly block fat loss
  • Small, frequent meals frequently pack on the pounds
  • Juices and smoothies cause overeating
  • Exercise is about much more than how much and how hard
  • Broccoli carbs can be worse than soda carbs

Based on a plan originally designed by a nutrition expert and personal trainer Venice A. Fulton for his A-list clients, SIX WEEKS TO OMG is a groundbreaking system that uses a precise mix of nutrition, biochemistry, genetics, and psychology to produce amazing results. Authoritative, clearly written, and entertaining, this book combines years of red carpet success with fresh, cutting-edge strategies to help anyone get thin and healthy-- fast!

Quick fixes don't work, but the right quick improvements can lead to permanent weight loss. No one is born fat, or destined to have cellulite. Anyone-- really, anyone-- can get skinny. Learn how with SIX WEEKS TO OMG.

The Lagasse Girls Share Their Favorite Meals

$25.99/$28.99 Can

Imagine growing up with a father known for his rich, Creole-style cooking who instilled you with a love and appreciation of food from the very start-- the centerpiece of every memory is food. Now image literally not being able to eat most of his dishes anymore.

This is what happened to Jessie and Jilly Lagasse. In 2001 and 2004 respectively, the girls were diagnosed with gluten allergies. They had to learn to adjust, which meant changing the way they ate, the way they cooked, learning to plan ahead, and paying attention to ingredients in new ways. For example, traditional New Orleans gumbo relies on roux-- a flour and fat base. After years of experimentation and searching, finally, Jessie and Jilly have figured out how to make this and so many other recipes gluten-free!

While there are many more gluten-free products on the market now than ever before, sometimes you just want a home-cooked meal. This cookbook provides a well-balanced base of recipes that can add flavor and enjoyment to the menus of even the pickiest or most demanding of gluten-free eaters. With appetizers, soups, salads, sides, entrees, and desserts, there is something for everyone in THE GLUTEN FREE TABLE. Based equal parts on family favorites, Southern classics, and Jessie and Jilly's own adventures, recipes include:

  • Sweet and Sticky Chicken Drumsticks
  • Hearty Ham and Butterbean Soup
  • Jalapeno and Cheddar Cornbread
  • Slow Cooked Rosemary Chicken with Apples
  • Sweet Maple Syrup Johnycakes
  • and many, many more!

The Lagasse girls will teach you that a Gluten-free diet is nothing to be scared of. With a little bit of inventiveness and perseverance, you can find joy and triumph in a gluten-free diet-- and you won't feel like you're missing a thing!

--and Lose Weight Fast

Oatmeal, salmon, Greek yogurt. Think these foods help you lose weight? Think again!

THE PLAN gives readers a groundbreaking 20-day program designed to help them unlock the mystery behind what works for their individual body. They will identify their hidden trigger foods and build a personalized healthy-foods list that promotes rapid weight loss. In additional to losing a half a pound a day while enjoying generous amounts of foods they love, readers will feel better, look better, and be empowered with the knowledge of what truly works best for their bodies.
