Overview

A short, no-nonsense book guaranteed to help the person who has tried
every diet book on the market.

Throughout the world, our waistbands are getting wider and we are paying a dear price: poor health and quality of life. Because of the connection between obesity and diabetes, the number of people with diabetes is expected to double by 2030. Information about diet and exercise can be so confusing for people and the suggestions too laborious and unrealistic. The 1 Thing “Diet,” written by a leading authority in the fields of obesity and diabetes, embraces the reader through its simplicity and light-hearted style. The book strives to give the basics about nutrition, exercise, and behavior, while giving simple suggestions for making one lifestyle change in any of these areas. One lifestyle change truly can lead to weight loss and any amount of weight loss can lead to better health. Read the many inspiring stories of the real-life 1 Thing “Dieters!”
“Savoye-DeSanti’s outstanding book skillfully embraces the at-risk, overweight population and offers a practical, first-line intervention. In addition to adults, this book would benefit overweight teenagers as the appearance of type 2 diabetes in teens is only the tip of the iceberg of the medical problems obese adolescents will face when they become young adults.”
—Dr. William V. Tamborlane, Editor-in-Chief, The Yale Guide to Children’s Nutrition

    Too much info for some

    This book does give some very essential information for obese patients and diabetes. A good portion of the info is making us aware of what we do that contributes to our condition. Some info was just too technical for the average person. All pages with charts were missing parts of the pages in the nook edition...difficult to read and get accurate information. Needs more examples.
