From the back cover: The Paleo. The Zone. The Gluten-free.
Another day, another diet.
We’re caught in a never-ending merry-go-round of weight loss plans, fueled by celebrity endorsers, TV doctors and companies angling for a piece of a $60 billion industry.
But do these diets really work?
And how healthy are they?
Registered Dietitian Lisa Tillinger Johansen examines dozens of the most wildly popular diets based on medical facts, not hype. And along the way, she reveals tried-and-true weight loss strategies, relying on her years of hospital experience, weight-loss seminars and community outreach efforts. With insight and humor, Stop The Diet, I Want To Get Off shows that the best answer is often not a trendy celebrity-endorsed diet, but easy-to-follow guidelines that are best for our health and our waistlines.
The American Diet industry tops $60 billion annually. They are a dictatorship that is making lots of money off of us and we are not winning in this war on fat. The loser is our health. We are looking at the diets to get us trim and healthy and we have given up our authority which is one of the reason why we are losing. Dr. Johansen has written this book so that we can see through all the fads and have the facts. She has divided the book into two parts: Part One: The Skinny gives us what we need to know about diets and fads and the merry-go-round. Then in Part Two: The Plan she gives us the nutrition information that we need to make healthy decisions. This is an incredible resource that we all should have and use it is that good!
