Seth Roberts - a psychology professor at the University of California, Berkeley - experimented with a whole range of diets before arriving at one which not only worked extraordinarily well, but took the least amount of effort and willpower and worked without deprivation. Based on the principle that you have a weight set-point, which you eat to until you no longer feel hungry, Seth recommends that you have a regular tablespoonful of light olive oil or sugared water between meals to lower your set-point, lower your hunger - and so of course lower your weight.

'A weight-loss theory that might just benefit a few million people.' -- Stephen J. Dubner, co-author of Freakonomics "The diet to end all diets...You actively feel like not eating... It's a kind of not hungry that you've never felt before" -- Joyce Cohen, NY Times columnist "Absurd, ridiculous, and remarkable. It is quite simply one of the most unusual weight loss books ever written... I have an inkling that Seth Roberts just might be onto something. The Shangri-La Diet is most certainly a paradigm-shifter of epic proportions." -- www.Diet-Blog.com "Everything on the cover is literally true. You make one, almost subtle, change, and you lose weight... The first and only diet book that I've ever seen that really delivers." -- www.CalorieLab.com "The strangest, easiest way to lose weight...It's been two weeks since I started and oh-my-god ... Within three days I was actually forgetting to eat." -- Kathy Sierra, co-author of Head First Java and blogger (Creating Passionate Users) Responses from Shangri-La bloggers: 'This diet works, it's easy, I eat whatever I feel like, but I snack much less.' 'This is the first time I have ever left food on a plate.' 'Before this, I felt powerless over food. Diets never worked. It was just an addiction. Now I eat when I'm hungry.' 'My interest in chocolate has dropped dramatically.' 'It appealed to my essential laziness.' -- www.freakonomics.com/blog
