Get Real and Stop Dieting!by Brett Blumenthal
“Generations ago, eating was much less complicated. We tended to shop more often at markets that provided fresh, locally produced foods. Families ate together, and most meals were cooked and eaten at home. Today, with the prevalence of packaged convenience foods and easy access to cheaper food in restaurants, our waistlines are expanding and our wellness is declining rapidly.”
In today’s high-speed culture, sensible human nutrition has been sidetracked by convenience foods and fad diets. Attempting to cut through the hype can be overwhelming for anyone, even when you have the best of intentions about adopting healthier eating habits and committing to long-term wellness. Fortunately, wellness expert Brett Blumenthal has created a straightforward diet and nutrition program to demystify the secrets of healthy eating once and for all. She identifies five simple principles, founded in fact, that can easily be applied in everyday life. Her “GET REAL” toolkit outlines tips on establishing proper portion size, shopping smart at the grocery store, and making healthy substitutions in cooking, along with advice about exercise, hydration, and stress reduction.
Hailed as “the ‘diet book’ for people who hate diet books,” GET REAL and STOP Dieting! will inspire, empower, and motivate you to live a healthier, happier life.

I have read several other diet books over the years. This book is terrific because there is no gimmick about dieting, it is just pure fact about what is in foods, what you need, how much you need, types of food to eat and types of food to avoid. It is true, you don't need to "diet" you just need to eat a healthy diet and this book spells it out for you. It is a fast, easy read with great information. This is a great reference book for everyone to have. Anyone interested in losing weight for life should start with this book and will avoid countless wasted hours with other diet books and diet fads.
