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.

For anyone wanting to learn how to eat health or to lose weight, this is a great book. It’s very in depth with sections on the different diets out there, what you should and shouldn’t eat, what to eat instead of, nutrition labels etc. There are many charts and how much of what food to eat, and what exercise to do and for how long to burn off the calories of different foods.

There’s a whole lot of information in this book and I think it would be a good one to have around if you are trying to get healthier or lose weight.

  1. This sounds like a valuable resource for dieters and health-conscious people. Thanks for hosting this giveaway, Vicki!

  2. That sounds like a good book, Vicki. I have watched as my coworkers go through different diets and always refraining from eating one thing or another yet they never lost weight. Some of the Atkins followers list for a bit but once they wanted carbs again they gained it back.
    Eating healthy and sensibly is the key, like when I was growing up in the 50’s & 60’s

  3. Thank you for taking the time to read and review my book. And thanks to those who commented about it. I appreciate it!

  4. This sounds like an excellent book.

  5. This sounds like it could be really helpful! I’m always nervous about books with the next fad diet, but a really science based analysis of the diets out there already would be awesome.

  6. This sounds good. I like books that analyze the landscape of dieting because it’s so full of pitfalls and contradictory advice — I assume all of it works for someone, but only some of it works in my life.
