Dieting Starts in the Supermarket
Registered dietitian Janis Jibrin’s just-out book, “The Supermarket Diet” (Hearst, $19.95), helps you escape the junk-food trap by telling how to stock your pantry with good food and cook it in a jiffy. I endorse the list of “svelte staples,” below, that Jibrin says you always should keep in the kitchen.
This book may help you to lose weight. But even if it doesn’t, it still has excellent recipes and tips on eating healthy.
Svelte staples for your shopping list
skinless, boneless chicken breast
low-sodium, canned tomatoes
canned light tuna in water
fat-free or 1% milk
dried plums (prunes)
jarred or minced garlic
long-lasting fresh fruits and vegetables, like carrots, onions, root vegetables, grapefruit and oranges
