Title: How Not To Diet; the groundbreaking science of healthy, permanent weight loss
By: Michael Gregor MD FACLM
Call #: 613.25 Grege.M
If you are worn out trying to make sense of the dueling advice one gets about weight loss, each with a charismatic spokesperson, this might be your book. Dr. Michael Gregor, MD., FACLM, only writes about new and existing findings with multiple, double blind, placebo controlled studies behind it. Dr. Gregor set out to find a cure for obesity based on research: “My goal was to create the oxymoron: an evidence-based diet book.” He’s on US New & World’s Report panel to rank and critique the best diets, too, so he’s seen everything. And there is only one criterion in this book, “The best diet is one that saves your life.” There is a lot of science to work through and this book is on the longer side. However, you will get the benefit of an entire organization that spends all of its time (nutritionfacts.org) reading all the newest nutrition research -and all the old nutrition research too – in order to make it freely available online. Gregor also did a lot of study on how you can get beyond the plateau — tricks and tips that not only help you lose weight, but as a side benefit, reduce illness. It you embrace his approach, it will change your life and your health. Bon Appetit!
