Discover the cutting-edge science behind long-term weight loss success, in this powerful new audiobook from the New York Times bestselling author of How Not to Die.

Every month seems to bring a trendy new diet or weight loss fad—and yet obesity rates continue to rise, and with it a growing number of diseases and health problems. It’s time for a different approach.

Enter Dr. Michael Greger, the internationally-renowned nutrition expert, physician, and founder of Nutritionfacts.org. Author of the mega bestselling How Not to Die, Dr. Greger now turns his attention to the latest research on the leading causes—and remedies—of obesity.

Dr. Greger hones in on the optimal criteria to enable weight loss, while considering how these foods actually affect our health and longevity. He lays out the key ingredients of the ideal weight-loss diet—factors such as calorie density, the insulin index, and the impact of foods on our gut microbiome—showing how plant-based eating is crucial to our success.

But How Not to Diet goes beyond food to identify twenty-one weight-loss accelerators available to our bodies, incorporating the latest discoveries in cutting-edge areas like chronobiology to reveal the factors that maximize our natural fat-burning capabilities. Dr. Greger builds the ultimate weight loss guide from the ground up, taking a timeless, proactive approach that can stand up to any new trend.

Chock full of actionable advice and groundbreaking dietary research, How Not to Diet will put an end to dieting—and replace those constant weight-loss struggles with a simple, healthy, sustainable lifestyle.

A perfect document of our food society

Thank u for producing such a beautiful document. It’s like the podcast but it just keeps going for 20 h! :)

I love michael gregor’s work! He has become my house god and I can stop referring to what I learn from him a handful times a week to my friends!

Must read book for anyone wanting to take control of their health and nutrition

Unlike other diet experts this author is not selling you supplements, lab tests, or expensive 2 week programs in Hawaii. He is not in it for the money. This is clear and that is one of the reasons I trust him. I am a doctor and can smell BS from 10 miles away. MG is the real deal.

Dr. Gregor and his approach to plant based eating is amongst the best I’ve come across. The detail and reference alone make these two books stand out big time. His website furthers the learning and keeps you up to speed in the middle of the book drops. Can’t say enough about this!
