Stop the Diet, I Want To Get Off! by Lisa Tilinger Johansen
Paperback: 350 pages
Publisher: J. Murray Press (July 15, 2015)
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.
