Publisher's Summary

For the first time in our history, scientists are uncovering astounding medical evidence about dieting -and why so many of us struggle with our weight and the size of our waists. Now researchers are unraveling biological secrets about such things as why you crave chocolate or gorge at buffets or store so much fat.
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.


What the Critics Say

"Back for another highly entertaining round of Biology 101, the team behind YOU: The Owner's Manual applies its signature wit and wisdom to food metabolism and nutrition. Roizen and Oz pack in a lot of bite-sized portions, giving readers a chance to absorb and apply what they learn." (Publishers Weekly)

Great book but confusing PDF

The PDF has to be downloaded separately from the Overview on Audible when you are previewing the book. It is 78 pages long!! There is a lot of paper for this audiobook, but it is great to have on hand!

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!!!
