This napoleon will look like a leaning tower when you’ve finished building it. A fork and knife will be your best tools to eat it with. Serve it on a large plate to accommodate its collapse.

1 3/4 cups sliced fresh strawberries
1 teaspoon sugar substitute
8 pecan halves
One 2:90 waffle
2 tablespoons light or non-fat whipped topping

Preheat the oven to 375°F. Sprinkle the sliced strawberries with the sugar substitute and set aside. Crumble the pecans into small pieces and toast in the oven for 3 to 5 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from the oven and let cool.

Toast the waffle and cut it in half. Spoon some of the sweetened strawberries on a large plate, place a half waffle on top, and top with another heaping spoonful of berries. Repeat the process with the remaining waffle and berries. Finish with the whipped topping and toasted pecans.

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 ingredient"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.
