Publisher's Summary

When it comes to losing weight, the false beliefs most of us cling to could fill a book - this one! As a medical doctor, medical journalist, and veteran of the diet wars, Nancy L. Snyderman knows better than almost anyone what really works and what sabotages your best efforts to shed pounds and keep them off. Do you believe any of these prevalent diet myths?

Your weight is your fault. 
Dieting is a waste of time - most dieters regain their weight before long.
Carbs are bad for you.
Carbs are good for you.
Calories don't count - it's the kind of food you eat that's the problem.
Fat is fat - it doesn't matter where on your body you carry it.
Diet drugs and surgeries are a magic bullet.In Diet Myths That Keep Us Fat, Dr. Snyderman reveals exactly why these and other bogus ideas get in the way of what should be the simple and even joyful endeavor of reaching and maintaining your ideal weight. In their place, she reveals 101 surprising truths - muscle doesn't weigh more than fat, you can eat after 8 p.m. and not gain weight, you can eat dessert for dinner when on a diet, and 98 more.
But here's the best news: Slimming down and getting healthier doesn't have to be about deprivation or superhuman feats of willpower. Instead, you will enjoy a new relationship with food - including those treats you love the most - while feeling fabulous inside and out. 
So forget the fad diets that work great...until they don't, along with the negative emotions associated with everything from bathroom scales to full-length mirrors. Most of all, forget all the myths and remember what's true: You can do this and you'll never regret it for a minute.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Just the facts Ma'm

This book changed the way I looked at losing weight. If you want to here more of the same diet crap that any yo yo dieter already knows and can't stick to this is not your book. This book is why I'm 37 pounds lighter going on 4 months now.
There are no quick fix metabolism tricks...no eat every 2 hours and 8 seconds timed quackery...just facts! That very much worked for me.

Positive book with lots of useful facts

Good book, developing positive thinking about the lifestyle. Most of the things are already known, but still good that it pushes to think more about eating habbits and food we consume and health. Would recommend!
