Michael Roizen and Mehmet Oz, America's most trusted doctor team and authors of the best-selling YOU series, are now translating this cutting-edge information to help you shave inches off your waist. They're going to do it by giving you the best weapon against fat: knowledge. By understanding how your body's fat-storing and fat-burning systems work, you're going to learn how to crack the code on true and lifelong waist management.
Roizen and Oz will invigorate you with equal parts information, motivation, and change-your-life action to show you how your brain, stomach, hormones, muscles, heart, genetics, and stress levels all interact biologically to determine if your body is the size of a baseball bat or of a baseball stadium. In YOU: On a Diet, Roizen and Oz will redefine what a healthy figure is, then take you through an under-the-skin tour of the organs that influence your body's size and its health. You'll even be convinced that the key number to fixate on is not your weight, but your waist size, which best indicates the medical risks of storing too much fat.
With Roizen and Oz's signature accessibility, wit, and humor, YOU: On a Diet: The Owner's Manual for Waist Management will revolutionize the way you think about yourself and the food you consume, so that you'll diet smart, not hard. Welcome to your body on a diet.

This Book is Dead On!!!
First things first: the PDF you guys keep asking about is at the end of the publishers summary on this (book's description) page. So yeah if you follow the plan this totally works. I bought the original version and got the updated version for my own personal edification. Knowing why we eat, gain and lose weight helps really maintain a good healthy body with out too much work. I wish i read this before a I had a stroke, thanks to a good waist management plan I'm pretty healthy again hoping to never see another stroke. It's not too expensive especially if you are an audible member like me. I say get it!!!

A Life Altering Education
This book has made a tremendous difference in my life. It has empowered me with the knowledge of how my body works with and how it processes the foods that I eat. I wish that I could have discovered it earlier and maybe I could have saved myself from some of the guilt and shame that I have experienced, but better late than never. Now I know that what I eat rebounds and resounds throughout my entire body and that I no longer have to be a slave to cravings and depression. I love that you go in detail on how to reduce my ghrelin and increase my leptin levels and also that we can't get rid of our genes BUT that we can turn them off. One of the biggest and most critical things I took from this book is that like a GPS, if you get off track just make that U-turn as soon as possible and continue on to the destination of optimal health! Thank you Dr. Oz and Dr. Roizen for caring enough to want to make a difference in our nation and peoples lives. I don't think that I have enough space to tell you all that you have helped me with, but please know that by your education I have made a mental change in how I appreciate this awesome God given body! Thanks again.
