Best weight management book on the market Jan 6, 2005
This is the best weight management book on the market.
The book gets right to the most important parts of losing and maintaining a healthy weight without wasting the reader's time. It also does not make the topic more complicated than it needs to be.
Key theme: Calories are still king and small substitutions in your diet will add up over time. Miracle cures and one dimensional programs (low carb, low fat, etc.) only work if calories are reduced.
The book has a lot more to say but it really respects the reader's time by presenting just the facts in a way that is straight forward and up to date. The authors present what proven science says about the topic instead of yet another cleverly designed theory created only to sell the next "Ahaa!!" miracle cure.
The book clears up a lot of confusion associated with the current diet debates (low fat or low carb).
What I liked best: 1. "to the point" format .... most books waste my time with too much verbiage and blah blah. You can read the whole thing in 1 hour. 2. hits all the essentials .... you really do have a solid grounding and plan to follow when you're done with the book. 3. up to date info that is based on research conclusions from major studies - not fads or wild extrapolation from one data point.
Since reading, I've lost about 10 pounds following the suggestions from the book and I've bought extra copies for interested friends and family.
