What if there's an easy way to lose weight? What if you don't have to count calories, exercise like a professional athlete, and be hungry all the time? When he came to America, Philip Green was a skinny international student. Nine years later, the American lifestyle had caught up with him -- he was overweight. Everything changed after he discovered oatmeal. He lost 42 pounds on a self-devised oatmeal diet in three months. His diet was so effective that people started to ask him about his quick weight-loss secret. And that's how this book was born. Philip has managed to keep off weight for two years now and counting. The Oatmeal Diet, he says, is not a diet but a healthy way of life.
