The long version: I am 58 years old and lately my lackluster halfhearted diet attempts have been making me crazy. I weigh about 25 pounds more than I'd like to, and I am feeling the strain of lugging around the extra weight, especially on my knees. On the one hand, I really want to lose the extra weight. On the other hand, I really want to eat whatever I want. And after having watched what I eat for 44 years now, sometimes more successfully than others, I have started to wonder: When does it end? When can I stop caring what I weigh? When can I eat Nutella without feeling guilty? When can I, you know, stop dieting and stop watching what I eat?
Sadly, my logical conclusion is never. I can stop caring about what I weigh and what I eat when I decide to stop caring about my health. So … never.
But still, even after years of doing this, I have found that lately the struggle has been profound. I drop 3 pounds and regain 4 almost immediately. Repeat repeat repeat. My overall trend has been up instead of down, despite my efforts. It's all very discouraging.
I have also spent a lifetime learning about diets and nutrition. Seriously, if you want the skinny on various diets, don't ask a thin person and don't ask an obese person. Ask an in-between person who has spent years facing the struggle. We know. We're the ones who do the homework and know all about Keto and Atkins and Ornish and Cabbage Soup and Paleo. My knowledge stretches back decades, and I have discovered that there are really only two things that work:
1. Your head has to be in the game. If you aren't mentally all in, it's a waste of time. If you are mentally all in, it doesn't matter what diet you're on, if any. You will succeed.
2. You can't just diet. It really has to be a lifestyle change to maintain long-term results.
So here I am, discouraged and prone to stress eating, not even wanting to play the diet game anymore – and along comes this book.
How Not to Diet was exactly what I needed. The book absolutely blew me away. I had no idea that there was so much I didn't know about a subject I thought I basically knew everything about. Every page a new revelation. Constant insights. Not just “eat more fiber” but detailed explanations as to why.
The author and his team scoured many thousands of studies to arrive at the well-researched conclusions with which this book is teeming. Free of the usual agendas and the unfounded assertions diet books put forward so that they will be different from one another and hence marketable, this book is loaded with GASP! actual facts.
I had also heard of, but not read, the author's How Not to Die. I've ordered a copy. I want to read as much of his work as possible. It's an investment in my health. Hopefully, this will be the catalyst I need to create real change. I am very optimistic.
The author's proceeds from this book will be donated to charity.
BOTTOM LINE: This book is a game changer. This book is a life changer. Very strongly recommend.
