Acclaimed nutritionist Cynthia Sass has proven, once and for all, that fast, sustainable weight loss is not about deprivation — in fact, this diet is anything but, featuring treats from guacamole to mandatory chocolate truffles. But it's the big results — up to eight pounds of weight loss in the first five days alone — that make S.A.S.S.!

Yourself Slim is a potent program that gives you the power to change your body, your health, and your life!

My Thoughts
S.A.S.S.! Yourself Slim by Cynthia Sass is a new release of her New York Times bestseller Cinch! that came out in December 2010. The S.A.S.S.! weight loss plan is a 30-day program aiming to end overeating, and leave dieters feeling full and satisfied while enjoying optimal food combinations to burn fat and boost metabolism. The program starts with a 5-day Fast Forward plan that includes just five foods - spinach, almonds, raspberries, eggs, and yogurt (or vegan alternatives). These first 5 days promise to put an end to erratic eating habits and result in up to 8 pounds of weight loss. The remaining 25 days of the program feature foods that aim to improve metabolism while keeping dieters losing weight and inches off their waist.

The core of the S.A.S.S.! program is based on three key rules that work together to provide real and lasting results:
  • Rule #1: Eat Like Clockwork
  • Rule #2: Think 5 Pieces 4 Times a Day
  • Rule #3: Make Flavor Your Focus
S.A.S.S.! includes valuable advice how to eat well and features recipes specifically created for the plan. I was impressed by the extensive nutritional research behind the program. Ms. Sass quotes numerous studies to prove why each of the foods she recommends is just right for you. The plan even includes a mandatory daily serving of dark chocolate - something that makes my inner chocolate person jump up and down with joy.

The March 2012 release supplements the original Cinch! book with new material. I enjoyed reading the success stories and seeing the before and after pictures of people who have successfully slimmed down on the program.

S.A.S.S.! Yourself Slim: Conquer Cravings, Drop Pounds, and Lose Inches hit the shelves on March 20, published by HarperOne.
