weight and eat healthier with his best-selling "South Beach Diet" books now addresses the special challenge that can undermine anyone's willpower - the irresistible lure of diet-busting dishes at festive occasions. As the more than 20 menus and 150 easy, all-new recipes in this cookbook prove, there's no need to give up favourite holiday and party dishes to stay on the South Beach Diet.

His new book provides those choices, putting a healthy twist on favourite entertaining meals for every occasion, whether it's a family Christmas Eve dinner, a football fest in front of the TV, or a barbeque with the neighbours. Readers will also find: practical tips and helpful (and healthful) hints throughout - including make-ahead suggestions, ideas for non-alcoholic cocktails (mock-tails), ways to use leftovers, and more; and 55 full-page colour photographs that illustrate the finished dishes along with ideas for stylish table settings and centre pieces.
