Having lost over 45 lbs in little more than 6 months I found that I was having difficulty in maintaining my new healthier weight. My original diet and exercise regime had obviously worked but I found that I was in need of some more advice in order to prevent me from putting the pounds back on. From one week to the next, I was alternating; 3 lbs gained herE, 2 lbs lost there etc. It was getting to be rather annoying and akin to hard work :-(
I was certainly glad I found this book.
It is clear that the author has tried many different diets and approaches to weight loss over the years and that this book taps in to those methods that have proven to be the best long-term weight loss/weight control strategies. Not only did this book reinforce my original weight loss regime, it provided me with a different aspect of weight control that has enabled me to adopt a few more strategies that have proved effective in preventing those extra pounds from creeping back on. After 6 weeks, I can definitely say that with the aid of a slightly new approach I am maintaining the new slimmer and healthier me.
If you fed-up (pun intended) with all those fad diets that seem to work for a few weeks before becoming impossible to follow any more because of the absurd limitations that they impose upon you, then this book delivers. Full of sound, no-nonsense advice, this book explains the choices available to you and describes the methods you can use to give you the motivation to pick the right course of action.
Janet points out the fact that it is sugar and not fat that is the biggest culprit when it comes to losing weight.
I was particularly interested in her views on Intermittent Fasting which is backed up by many scientific studies which she has provided direct links for.
This is a well written, sensible, comprehensive book that brings together the best of our knowledge to date. If you want to escape from your dieting madness once and for all then I would highly recommend this book.
