DR. NEIL SOLOMON gain is evident, then the body is chemically upset. The lanky and energetic Dr. Solomon was once a "yo-yo" himself. "I would go anywhere from five to 15 pounds over my ideal weight--until I decided to take my own advice and have myself checked out. I found that I had a minor, easily treatable metabolic disorder. Since then I haven't varied in weight by more than two pounds." When questioned about fad diets, Dr. Solomon does a quick burn. "There is absolutely no truth whatsoever to the contention that it's healthiest to get the pounds off FAST. The fact is that it's downright dangerous to neglect basic nutrition and thus starve your vital organs--doing them irreparable damage." Quick-loss diets present a great temptation for the despairing overweights, so Dr. Solomon offers a few suggestions to those who want to begin to lose weight immediately--even before seeing a doctor: · Abstain from all desserts, between- meal snacks, alcohol and salt. · Eat half portions of whatever else you normally would eat. ' · Drink an eight-ounce glass of ice water five minutes before every meal. · Keep on hand a good supply of "emergency foods" such as raw vegetables for nibbling. · Carry a calorie-counter booklet at all times to remind you to think of your calorie allowance. The average daily allowance for men is estimated at 2800; for women, 2000. "Eventually, if you keep to a balanced diet and a reasonable amount of calories per day, you should not only lose weight, but "I'm taking you off sugar 'n' spice and everything nice." bring your body's metabolism back to normal," Dr. Solomon says. "But it's not always easy or even possible to do this by yourself. Seeing a doctor who is qualified to diagnose the stumbling blocks and tailor a diet to your specific need is the only sane thing to do." Exercise certainly is an important part of the Solomon prescription. The doctor him- self keeps on the run every day to various jobs as Maryland's Secretary of Health and Mental Hygiene, attending his private practice, and teaching at Johns Hopkins Hospital. He is also a husband and father of three. The best exercise for anyone interested, he says with a smile, is sex. "It burns up approximately 300 calories per couple."
