For the first time in our history, scientists are uncovering astounding medical evidence about dieting -and why so many of us struggle with our weight and the size of our waists. Now researchers are unraveling biological secrets about such things as why you crave chocolate or gorge at buffets or store so much fat.

Michael Roizen and Mehmet Oz, America's most trusted doctor team and authors of the best-selling YOU series, are now translating this cutting-edge information to help you shave inches off your waist. They're going to do it by giving you the best weapon against fat: knowledge. By understanding how your body's fat-storing and fat-burning systems work, you're going to learn how to crack the code on true and lifelong waist management.

Roizen and Oz will invigorate you with equal parts information, motivation, and change-your-life action to show you how your brain, stomach, hormones, muscles, heart, genetics, and stress levels all interact biologically to determine if your body is the size of a baseball bat or of a baseball stadium. In YOU: On a Diet, Roizen and Oz will redefine what a healthy figure is, then take you through an under-the-skin tour of the organs that influence your body's size and its health. You'll even be convinced that the key number to fixate on is not your weight, but your waist size, which best indicates the medical risks of storing too much fat.

With Roizen and Oz's signature accessibility, wit, and humor, YOU: On a Diet: The Owner's Manual for Waist Management will revolutionize the way you think about yourself and the food you consume, so that you'll diet smart, not hard. Welcome to your body on a diet.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Monika | 2/11/2014

    " Another commute book. Full of interesting facts, but harder to retain since I need to pay attention to driving as well. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Courtney | 2/9/2014

    " Good luck to you if you go on this diet LOL "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lee Farrell | 2/9/2014

    " Very fun and informative book to read. I learned a lot of interesting facts I will put into practice in my life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lindsay | 1/30/2014

    " What I like about this book is that it is practical and encourages a balanced and healthy diet. It is not only informative but motivating and funny at times. There is a lot of information and science in the book, which is great, but if you're not into that then you can skip those parts and read the chapters that suit you. There are great tips about certain foods or supplements and what they do for you and your body. I like most of the recipes I've tried, the Garden Harvest soup is one of my faves. I can't say that it helps one lose weight, because that is not what I used the book for; really it was to supplement the eating habits my husband and I have been following for the last few months and incorporate more healthy recipes into our diet. "

    " Read this before but doing a quick review as I set out to lose some stubborn pounds this fall. I'm not a fan of fad-diets so I really like this book because it is science based. I love that they explain how fat comes on and off of your body and gives you some practical tips for succeeding. I also really like that the focus is on being healthy--not just skinny (even though that's the real goal and we all know it!) "
