2:90 Swedish Pancakes

Layer the pancakes with raspberries for a "tall stack." Make sure to leave enough berries to crown the stack with a colorful cap.

31⁄2 tablespoons whole-wheat flour

1 teaspoon sugar substitute

1⁄2 teaspoon baking powder

1⁄3 cup non-fat dry milk powder

About 1⁄4 cup water

Nonstick cooking spray

1 1⁄2 cups raspberries

2 tablespoons sugar-free maple-flavored syrup

8 pecan halves, chopped and toasted

In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, sugar substitute, and baking powder. Stir in the dry milk and slowly stir in enough water to form a batter.

Heat a nonstick griddle over medium-high heat. Spray with nonstick cooking spray. Pour the batter into 3 or 4 small pancake shapes and cook until the batter begins to bubble. Flip the pancakes and brown the other side. On a large platter, stack the pancakes, with raspberries between the layers, finishing with the raspberries. Drizzle the syrup and pecans over the top.

Want to know more about The Reality Diet?

The reality is that extreme diets that promise instant results just don’t work. For one thing, you lose muscle and water, but little fat, and may seriously jeopardize your health in the process. For another, restricting certain foods and food groups deprives your body of essential nutrients. In the end, the faster the pounds come off, the faster they pile back on.

After seeing many of his patients fail on these kinds of fad diets, and suffer health-threatening side effects, Dr. Steven A. Schnur, founder of the largest cardiology practice in South Florida, developed a new, breakthrough program. The Reality Diet is not low carb, low fat, or high protein. Instead it is rich in a wide variety of foods that are high in one key fat-fighting ingredientâ€"fiber. Not only does fiber stop hunger, it also significantly lowers the risk of heart disease, diabetes, and a host of other illnesses.

Flexible and forgiving, The Reality Diet is for real people living in the real world. With eight weeks of mouthwatering menus, more than 200 quick and easy recipes, tips for eating in restaurants and navigating holidays, as well as an effective exercise program, The Reality Diet is both a comprehensive weight-loss plan and a blueprint for lifelong health.
