Come next April, yet another diet book -- this one from a baker in Portland, Maine -- will hit bookstores nationwide.
This book by Stephen Lanzalotta capitalizes on the wild popularity of the bestselling novel, The Da Vinci Code.
Yeah, Associated Press reports that the book, The Diet Code: Revolutionary Weight-Loss Secrets From Da Vinci and The Golden Ratio, comes from a "baker who lost half his business to the low-carb craze."
Interestingly, this baker's book is allegedly based on mathematical principles of the Golden Ratio, a formula used by Leonardo Da Vinci.
The baker's literary agency, Marly Rusoff & Associates, Inc, describes the Diet Code as "a revolutionary and unique Mediterranean-style eating program that uses this ancient numerical sequence to link together the proper proportions of carbohydrates, proteins and fats to boost the metabolism and spark weight loss."
Of course, it should come as no surprise that the baker urges dieters to eat bread -- whether the diet is derived mathematically or not.
