Overview

When you go on crash diets your body thinks you're starving and tries to put on fat more effectively. In effect, dieting pits your will against your body. In the end, your body--naturally--always wins.

Dieting has now been proven to fail to keep weight off; the faster you lose it, the faster your body tries to put it back on.

In this no-nonsense book, Mark Bricklin explains how to lose weight and keep it off, not by dieting but by pursuing the life style nature intended: a healthy one that allows you to eat nutritious, wholesome food and invigorates your body through exercise. Your body will not panic and think you are starving, and you won't enter the cycle of food obsession.

Food was meant to be enjoyed, and Mark Bricklin never loses sight of that positive attitude in this uplifting, sensible book. Lose Weight Naturally offers intelligent reassurance without the hype and without empty promises to people everywhere concerned about their weight and their health.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Bricklin, editor of Prevention , urges a no-gimmicks approach to taking weight off and keeping it off with a sensible program involving nothing more (and nothing less) than moderate reductions in caloric intake and moderate increases in expended energy. Rather than recommending dangerously restrictive dieting, the author advises heightened awareness of what, when and why we eat, easily adapted to a weight-loss and -maintenance regimen by cutting back and eating healthier (but not unfamiliar) foods. In his conversational, disarming style, Bricklin helps readers acknowledge and eliminate the dozens of minor bad habits that lead to major overeating, at the same time offering numerous valuable, near-painless suggestions for getting more exercise. We learn that controlling our weight is necessarily a lifelong process, but fortunately Bricklin's method involves neither deprivation nor overexertion; temptations are to be avoided, not overcome with ``willpower.'' Charts and recipes are included, and an informative, accessible 90-page table evaluates the nutritional value of foods from amaranth greens to Big Macs. (Mar . )
