I’ve been on vacation this week at the Club Med in Turks and Caicos, so posts have been very sparse…the technology here is what the young lady at reception called, “Island speed”.

I have taken the opportunity to re-read Dr. Will Clower’s, The French Don’t Diet Plan, an absolutely marvelous and scholarly treatise on how to love your food again and regain both your health and normal weight. It couldn’t have come at a better time; facing the buffet barrage of wonderful choices for which Club Med is famous.

If you’ve struggled with weight for years, Clower’s is a breath of fresh air that will set you free. A respected neuroscientist, Clower deals with the “how” of bringing intuition, self-awareness, and pleasure into the health and weight-control challenge. This is one of the essential reads in the annals of food.
