  • "The best 'NON-DIET" diet book ..."

    46 of 47 helpful votes

    This is an excellent book. This isn't your typical diet book. You will not get list of foods to eat or avoid. You will not get recipes or meal plans. You will not get the exercise lecture, weight charts or BMI calculations. What you will get is straight honest talk about how the food industry uses clever marketing to make us fat. Dr. Kessler gets very technical in explaining why you just can't say no to some foods... and no, it's not because you are week or have no willpower. It's not because you had a bad childhood or your mother was the clean plate club president. This book will make you angry at the food industry and will fire you up to fight back. Dr. Kessler gives logical, effective pointers for reevaluating how you eat that will ultimately result in a healthier and better looking you. Download this book, listen, take notes and make you own game plan for your future. It may be the best credit worthy book at Audible. The readers did a good job in presenting this book. Without a doubt this is the best 'NON-DIET" diet book out there.

For decades, Americans have cut back on red meat and dairy products full of "bad" saturated fats.

    "Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants." These simple words go to the heart of Michael Pollan's In Defense of Food. Humans used to know how to eat well, Pollan argues. But the balanced dietary lessons that were once passed down through generations have been confused, complicated, and distorted by food industry marketers, nutritional scientists, and journalists-all of whom have much to gain from our dietary confusion.

    Every year, the average American eats 33 pounds of cheese (triple what we ate in 1970) and 70 pounds of sugar (about 22 teaspoons a day). We ingest 8,500 milligrams of salt a day, double the recommended amount, and almost none of that comes from the shakers on our table. It comes from processed food. It’s no wonder, then, that one in three adults, and one in five kids, is clinically obese.

    Since the introduction of dietary guidelines calling for reduced fat intake in the 1970s, a strange phenomenon has occurred: Americans have steadily, inexorably become heavier, less healthy, and more prone to diabetes than ever before. After putting more than two thousand of his at-risk patients on a wheat-free regimen and seeing extraordinary results, cardiologist William Davis has come to the disturbing conclusion that it is not fat, not sugar, not our sedentary lifestyle that is causing America’s obesity epidemic—it is wheat.

    "Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants." These simple words go to the heart of Michael Pollan's In Defense of Food. Humans used to know how to eat well, Pollan argues. But the balanced dietary lessons that were once passed down through generations have been confused, complicated, and distorted by food industry marketers, nutritional scientists, and journalists-all of whom have much to gain from our dietary confusion.

    Every year, the average American eats 33 pounds of cheese (triple what we ate in 1970) and 70 pounds of sugar (about 22 teaspoons a day). We ingest 8,500 milligrams of salt a day, double the recommended amount, and almost none of that comes from the shakers on our table. It comes from processed food. It’s no wonder, then, that one in three adults, and one in five kids, is clinically obese.

    Michael says: "This is all too real, and YOU are the victim."
