Author Event: Fred Bollaci and The Restaurant Diet

Join The Reserve for a very special meet-and-greet and book signing event with the author of “The Restaurant Diet:  How to Eat Out Every Night and Still Lose Weight.”

About the book
Fred Bollaci, who lost 150 pounds (from 330), offers a diet plan that takes the pressure off of dieters dining out. He teaches readers how to read a menu, ask important questions of the staff, and have food customized to their dietary needs. He provides insights into converting this into healthy eating at home. 

As Fred teaches readers how to eat out and lose weight, he reveals the real secret: It’s not about preparing “clean” food at home, or going “whole” and excluding wheat, sugar, and dairy; nor is it about counting calories or grams: It’s about WHY one overeats in the first place. Fred reveals his story of growing up in an Italian family, and how his parents’ divorce led to his eating compulsions. He tried every fad diet, yet Fred was searching for a lasting solution. With the help of his doctor, a nutritionist, a trainer, and a psychologist, Fred developed a four-phase diet and exercise plan that works! Fred proves that if he can do it, anyone can. He has kept the weight off for over seven years. He has completed four marathons—he looks great, feels great, and can enjoy great food and drink wherever he is.

“The Restaurant Diet” will provide you with dozens of strategies for working with chefs, restauranteurs, and wait staff to ensure a healthier dining out experience.
