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
• 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
• Fat is fat-it doesn't matter where on your body you carry
• 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.
