From the YOU doctors Mehmet Oz and Michael Roizen, using information from their multimillion copy bestselling YOU: On a Diet, comes this small guide to losing weight and turning your life around in sixty days.
There are no shortcuts when it comes to weight, and waist, loss—no twenty-pounds-in-three-days formulas, no way to get from size XXXL to size S by the end of the weekend. But you can diet smart, not hard. In YOU: Losing Weight, the doctors behind the bestselling YOU: On a Diet offer their best ninety-nine tips and strategies for getting your body into the shape and with the waist size that you’ve always wanted. Dieting can’t be hard if you are to succeed for a lifetime, and it should never feel like a sacrifice. With the right strategy, you can make the lifestyle changes that you need to lose weight and get healthy for good.
In this handy waist-loss guide, Dr. Michael Roizen and Dr. Mehmet Oz use their signature wit and wisdom to boil down the science and strategies for you. They keep their usual no-nonsense approach to explaining the human body to outline why crash dieting can’t work for the long term. More important, America’s Doctors share their favorite weight-loss super-foods recipes and provide exercise suggestions for how to get the most from any kind of workout. With food plans, shopping lists, and comprehensive advice on the science of waist loss, this pocket-size paperback is packed with everything dieters need to know about how to develop better habits that will keep pounds off for good.
A book that lacks anything new or enlightening
This book professes to offer you a new way to lose 20 lbs in six weeks but fails to live up to what it is selling beyond what is already known that more exercise will aide you in your weight loss goal. I was expecting more, especially out of two known and well respected doctors. They also say to eliminate certain things completely with one of them being saturated fats and for me that is impossible. I eat chicken and turkey and occasionally beef and pork with all the visible fat removed and I am also hung up on using olive oil and nuts and couldn't eliminate them. I am not trying to say that their exercise program and ideas are not great but the idea of just exercising more has been around for decades. The elimination of trans fats, the reduction of sugar intake and saturated fats, and the elimination of HFCs and enriched and white flour as well as refined carbs is also not new. The book wasn't that expensive but I am still disappointed considering the source and seeing the results. It is much less than I expected from two doctors whom I greatly admire.
