The problem is, we're overloaded with contradictory information. Should we eat more carbohydrate or less carbohydrate? (And what exactly is a carbohydrate anyway?) Is a breakfast of steak and eggs the secret to dropping pounds or the setup for weight gain and a heart attack? It's enough to send you to the pantry looking for comfort food (chocolate chip cookies will do!) to cope.
Before you reach for those cookies and resign yourself to being overweight forever, read The Weight-Loss Bible. It will help you separate fad from fact so you can choose-or create-a weight-loss plan that's right for you.
The Weight-Loss Bible doesn't champion one point of view. Instead, it helps you understand the fundamentals of nutrition and exercise so you can make smart, safe dieting choices that are most effective for you. Then it explains the pros and cons of the major types of diet plans, from low-fat/high-carb to low-carb diets, from liquid diets to 12-step support programs. Reviews of the 20 most popular diet plans spell out the main points of each diet, analyze the theories behind them, explain what you can and cannot eat, give expert opinions, and lay out potential nutritional pitfalls as well as the results you can expect.
If you prefer to devise your own approach to losing weight, The Weight-Loss Bible doesn't desert you. In fact, it encourages you! First it guides your self-assessment so you can set realistic and achievable weight-loss goals. Then it gives you the tools to help you build your own diet and exercise program to achieve those goals. One of the tools is a nutrient counter that provides calorie, fat, carb, and other nutrient values for hundreds of foods. Use it to select foods that fit into your personal diet plan. Can't decide what to have for meals or snacks? The Weight-Loss Bible also includes scrumptious recipes that will make you wonder why you didn't start your weight-loss plan sooner.
Losing weight doesn't have to be an arduous journey. Let The Weight-Loss Bible be the navigator on the trip to a slimmer, healthier you.
