The Da Vinci Diet

(sigh)

This author received reportedly receive a six-figure advance for writing Da Vinci Diet.

:::via: Diet-Blog.com ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Stephen Lanzalotta created what he called the "Da Vinci Diet" in response to the decline in bread consumption brought on by the popularity of the Atkins Diet. The diet consists mostly of Mediterranean foods, including bread, fish, cheese, vegetables, meat, nuts and wine.

The diet is based on the Golden Ratio or Phi, a mathematical value that was used to build the pyramids and has since been found to exist most everywhere in nature. Da Vinci is said to have used the Golden Ratio to proportion the human figures in his paintings which is how it found its way into Dan Brown's hugely popular novel.

The author, Stephen Lanzalotta, is a baker. Read more about this book, and the diet, over at Fox News.
