In My Big Fat Greek Diet, Dr. Nick Yphantides teaches readers the powerful 7 Pillars of Weight Loss, which features medically safe, practical how-tos anyone can apply, whether they need to lose 10 or 300 pounds. Analyzing components of a variety of diets, Dr. Nick assists readers in customizing a weight-loss program to their specific needs and lifestyles.
Topping out at 467 pounds, Dr. Nick was known in San Diego as a big
man with a big heart. When a battle with cancer inspired him to focus on his own health, he embarked on a lifestyle change that would drop him to a svelte 200 pounds. His book, now in trade paper, will inspire and equip readers to design a program that allows them to experience their own weight-loss miracle!
The beginning of the book is the setting for his adventures and ups and downs in motivation at the baseball fields having his emotional food battles. He does well at giving a funny side and sincere side of his battle, You would have to read it throughly and not give in to wanting to put the book down. I know I did there for a while, but I felt there was something more to be taken from his experience, and their definitely was! I read the last 100 pages of the 7 pillars and it hit home, what the beginning of the book was about. So don’t forego the beginning of the book to get to what you may think is the meat of his diet. It definitely is not a diet book, although it tells you about some emotional components you deal with as you are on a weight loss journey. He is now the medical advisor for a weight loss non – profit group (TOPS) for Take off Pounds Sensibly. He truly is living the walk now and is able to comfortably let patients know do as I say and DO. No longer, the do as I say not as I DO by setting the bad example of being over 450 pounds. This was a refreshing take and knowing what I know about the author through the TOPS organization makes me even more motivated that I can do this! Thanks, Dr. Nick
