Overview


Every day, we make literally hundreds of choices about what to eat and drink and how to live, which impact our health and, ultimately, our weight. When these habits are good, it’s easy to keep weight in check. When they’re bad, the number on our scales can creep upwards and upwards. If you’re like most people, your habits could be in need of a tune-up.

The 101 “slim habits” presented in THE REAL SKINNY by registered dieticians and founders of the popular website "Appetite for Health" are based on information they have culled from leading dieticians around the country—i.e. this is a “best of” list, and these habits REALLY WORK! The authors tackle such topics as:

- Friends and family can negatively impact your eating habits. This book shows you how to keep a meat-and-potato-loving man happy at the dinner table while slashing your calorie intake at the same time.
- Do low-calorie or zero-calorie sodas and foods leave you feeling hungry for more? You'll learn ways to use some calorie-controlled foods to their advantage, while developing a life-long eating strategy that relies on great-tasting, wholesome foods, rather than manmade substitutes.
- The way in which your kitchen is organized and the size of your dishes can impact your weight. Here, you'll find steps to downsize serving dishes and reorganize your refrigerator and pantry to promote healthier choices at home.
- It can be difficult to maintain healthy eating habits when you have a busy, on-the-go lifestyle. The authors' "menu decoder" will help you pick the best plates at the most common chain and ethnic restaurants.

In THE REAL SKINNY: Appetite for Health's 101 Fat Habits & Slim Solutions, Katherine Brooking and Julie Upton provide real-life, practical steps for you to kick your “fat habits” once and for all.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
On their popular Web site Appetite for Health, experienced, registered dieticians/nutritionists Upton and Brooking have provided daily advice about losing weight and eating healthy since 2009. So many of their followers, veterans of the weight-loss wars, posted the same questions, complaints, and confessions about their frustrating struggle to lose unwanted pounds that the authors recognized the real problem lay in a set of common “fat habits” people fall into when dieting. This little book, in its skinny 4 in. by 8 in. format, is a compilation of the 101 worst fat habits and the “slim solutions” for overcoming what is often a lifetime of bad behavior and misconceptions surrounding food and nutrition on the part of the dieter. Each of the book’s nine chapters describes fat habits that are sure to resonate with any reader who has ever tried to lose weight. The authors then provide information-packed, highly practical, and easily implemented suggestions and strategies for managing food choices and environment, and asserting self-control. These include suggestions on how to handle stress, begin an exercise plan, become a smart food shopper, set up a diet-friendly kitchen, and enlist the help of friends and family. Chapter seven features a 14-day meal plan, and 20 creative calorie- and fat-reduced recipes appear in chapter nine. Sidebars, boxes, and charts abound, offering calorie and fat counts, recommended “good-for-bad” food swaps, good books for dieting cooks, nutritional info from fast-food outlets, and how to eat “like a nutrition pro” when dining out. Upton and Brooking deliver just what a dieter needs to succeed in losing weight and keeping it off—information, inspiration, and example. (Apr.)
