Publisher Description

Get the real skinny on fat. When it comes to losing weight, the false beliefs most of us cling to could fill a book–this one! As a medical doctor, medical journalist, and veteran of the diet wars, Nancy L. Snyderman knows better than almost anyone what really works and what sabotages your best efforts to shed pounds and keep them off. Do you believe any of these prevalent diet myths? • Your weight is your fault. • Dieting is a waste of time–most dieters regain their weight before long. • Carbs are bad for you. • Carbs are good for you. • Calories don’t count–it’s the kind of food you eat that’s the problem. • Fat is fat–it doesn’t matter where on your body you carry it. • Diet drugs and surgeries are a magic bullet. In Diet Myths That Keep Us Fat, Dr. Snyderman reveals exactly why these and other bogus ideas get in the way of what should be the simple and even joyful endeavor of reaching and maintaining your ideal weight. In their place, she reveals 101 surprising truths–muscle doesn’ t weigh more than fat, you can eat after 8 p.m. and not gain weight, you can eat dessert for dinner when on a diet, and 98 more. But here’s the best news: Slimming down and getting healthier doesn’t have to be about deprivation or superhuman feats of willpower. Instead, you will enjoy a new relationship with food–including those treats you love the most–while feeling fabulous inside and out. So forget the fad diets that work great . . . until they don’t, along with the negative emotions associated with everything from bathroom scales to full-length mirrors. Most of all, forget all the myths and remember what’s true: You can do this and you’ll never regret it for a minute. Includes a bonus PDF of recipes, informational charts, and other resources from the book

    " Good tips. Very simple to flip through, read a piece, compute and move on. Some good personal anecdotes as well. I like those examples. They're always encouraging. "

    " Read through it in one day. Very practical. I agree with everything she says except on the chapter about supplements. Everyone should be taking whole food supplements whether you are are at your ideal weight or still working on it. "

    " This was an okay book but it really didn't tell me anything new in regards to changing my diet. The author did do a good job in adding examples from her life to illustrate the reasoning behind the why certain deit myths are true or false. "

    " I enjoyed the tone, but felt it didn't say anything I hadn't read about dieting. I think she does make good points about taking time for yourself, eating better foods & getting in a healthy mindset. Dr. Snyderman has a good outlook on life, & that I enjoyed. "

    " This was a worthwhile read. Basically the author advocates a low fat diet between 1,200 - 1,500 calories. Nothing fancy, no low carb, no high protein. There are truth boxes on many pages that explain health phenomena in more detail. "

    " Very likeable writing style. A lot of this info was common sense. I really liked the 30-day menu ideas in the back. "

    " Actually, the content is a little boring but I did learn a lot and wasreminded a lot of how to eat balanced, so it was good. Sometimes, it's necessary to remind oneself that a lifestyle of bagels and muffinsdoesn't really do it!! "
