From the cover: “After years of research on the subject of slimming Doctors and Dieticians alike have arrived at the same conclusion, there is no single satisfactory method of slimming. The only method guaranteed to work, is a combination of suitable exercise and a sensible diet.

There are many books on slimming techniques, some advocate massage machines, slimming garments, or other mechanical aids, but they have proved to be of little value in reducing weight, unless they are combined with exercise and sensible eating habits.

This book has been prepared by scientists who have made an exhaustive study of the calorific values of oriental foods and have worked in close liaison with SORAYA the world’s most famous belly dancer, to produce this book.

If you follow the movements and exercises described and keep to a calorie-controlled diet as shown by the interesting recipes — then YOU MUST LOSE WEIGHT. This is slimming the exciting way, it is interesting and will keep you fit as well as providing an incentive to stick to your exercise plan.”
