Diets work. Even some of the most cockamamie diets work if you follow them. But as many serial dieters know, the trick is keeping the weight off after the wedding, or the high school reunion, or the motivating look in the dressing room mirror. I know - I really know - how hard it is to maintain weight loss. I've lost maybe 500 pounds in my lifetime. So I knew enough to be skeptical when I saw Jackie Warner's book "10 Pounds in 10 Days. " Of course, I didn't let that stop me. The diet industry exists because we fail, often again and again, at the hard work of a lifelong healthful diet and activity plan.

If ever an Angel "caught lightning in a bottle," it was Warner. As a rookie outfielder in 1966, the club's first year at Anaheim Stadium, Warner hit three game-winning home runs in the team's first 10 games and was batting nearly .350 when he suffered a torn ligament in his hand while taking a swing. Warner was soon sent to the minor leagues and never played in the majors again, and retired in 1970 with seven home runs in his 37 big league games.

J.T. Snow wouldn't know Jackie Warner from Little Jack Horner, but if the Angel first baseman ever met the High Desert truck driver, he might think a parallel universe was at work here. As a 23-year-old Angel rookie in 1966, Warner tore up the American League in his first 15 games, batting .345 with five home runs, 13 runs batted in and 14 scored.

(Editor's note: Staff writer Mary MacVean tried out trainer Jackie Warner's diet and exercise plan from her recent book “10 Pounds in 10 Days.” Here's her experience.) Day 1 There are always new diet books out there. You've got to wonder: If we could make them work, would the publishing industry have to tighten its own belt a few notches? Failure is a staple of the diet industry. Still, when I saw Jackie Warner 's latest book, “10 Pounds in 10 Days,” I thought, “OK, why not?

Full disclosure: I work out at Sky Sport & Spa, the high-end Beverly Hills gym featured in Bravo's docu-soap "Work Out." When I signed up, I had never seen the show; I picked my trainer, Agostina, because of her aspirational abs. As it turns out, Agostina is one of the new trainers on the third season of "Work Out" (10 p.m. Tuesdays), which started last week. So out of curiosity, I downloaded the first and second seasons and watched the show at lunch as I ate my cottage cheese.

Re "A Vote for Fair Retirement," editorial, Oct. 8: I really have to take issue with your argument for a yes vote on Prop. 33, which would allow members of the state Legislature to participate in the state retirement system at a cost to taxpayers of more than $500,000 per year plus administration costs. Most of these people are well-to-do professionals who opt to take six to eight years to participate in the legislative process. What's more, when they are termed out, many of them either run for a different office, accept an appointment to some other government agency (whereupon they do become eligible for the state retirement plan)

(Editor's note: Writer Mary MacVean tried out trainer Jackie Warner's diet plan from her new book “10 Pounds in 10 Days.” Here's her experience. Read about her previous days .) Day 10 And the total is ... eight pounds in 10 days. I'll take it. Happily -- though a little worried about regaining it. That's the bane of dieters everywhere. Losing weight is not easy -- I've lost several people's worth in my time. But keeping it off is a Sisyphean task. I know plenty of people who'd wonder what might have pushed them to 10 pounds.

Taking a stroll? Here's a move that makes a walk in the park, well, less of a walk in a park. Jackie Warner (www.jackiewarner.com), star of Bravo's fitness reality show "Work Out" and author of the new book "10 Pounds in 10 Days," demonstrates step-ups that you can do on a bench. Why you should try it: The step-up focuses on the glute, hamstrings and quads. "It's a fantastic, full lower-body exercise," Warner says. What to do: Step up onto the bench with your right leg and pull your left knee up, to waist height, then return it to the ground.

You don't need a gym or pricey fitness machines to get a great workout. Here Jackie Warner (www.jackiewarner.com), star of Bravo's fitness reality show "Work Out," and author of the new book "10 Pounds in 10 Days," demonstrates a close-to-wide squat. All you need is a flat surface and some way to demark a circle. A jump rope works just fine. Why you should do it: "It really focuses on the glute - that's the butt - big time," Warner says. What to do: Place the jump rope in a circle around you. Stand within the circle, hands clasped together at chest level, squat down to sitting position, then jump up. Land with your legs now outside of the circle, lowering into a squat again.
