In an energetic and easy-to-follow guide, London, nutrition director at Good Housekeeping magazine, cuts through the clutter of diets, myths, and trends to help her audience create a "do less" strategy for weight loss and eating a healthier diet. Forget detoxes (they're "bullsh*t"), fad diets, and the miracle of coconut oil, London urges. Readers will learn about the importance of "breakfast in two parts," which means splitting breakfast into two small separate meals at home and at work, and the danger of stress eating. Inspiring bulletpoint lists ("in this chapter, you will learn...") tell readers exactly what they can expect, and snappy headlines ("The Superfraud of Superfoods,' " "Decide When Good' Is Better Than "Best") will keep them interested in soldiering on through the text. London covers everything from a "Holiday Eating Survival Plan" to dining-out tips, with her overriding suggestion for success being to "Go Hard on the Veg." Concluding that "no one knows what's best for you better than you do," London will leave dieters feeling inspired and reassured.
