It's no secret America has a growing weight problem, an obesity epidemic with a serious effect on individual health. Rates of diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and heart attacks rise dramatically with excess weight.

You've heard all this before, though. We're bombarded with media messages sounding the alarm over obesity rates, usually sandwiched between ads for high-fructose syrup drinks and super-sized fast-food. What isn't reported is how to maintain a healthy weight. Apparently we're supposed to know this instinctively, which isn't the case at all.

Ultra-intense workout tapes and low-calorie diet books help some people lose weight, but they make high demands and are intimidating, so people often give up on them. Besides, who wants to live off kale smoothies?

Healthy Tex-Mex takes a different approach. Designed with south Texas cuisine and tastes in mind, the recipes in this cookbook retain all the bold flavors you expect from Tex-Mex while using healthier ingredients. Dr. Juan C. Prieto and his team understand taste is just as important for a successful diet program as ingredients, so you'll still enjoy tangy salsas, delicious guacamole, and yes, even healthy refried beans.

Dr. Prieto offers easy-to-follow guidance for people wanting to make healthier grocery shopping and cooking decisions. Healthy Tex-Mex offers plenty of tips for changing your lifestyle in small but important ways, so you'll experience progressively greater successes while having fun and without sacrificing the tastes you love.

Sure, more spartan, demanding diet books may help you lose weight faster, but Healthy Tex-Mex helps you adjust to a healthy lifestyle without intimidation, stress, or kale smoothies. Start your journey to healthy living today, and try the tortilla chip-crusted chicken with green salsa. It's delicious!
