    Real science, not junk science

    I joined Weight Watchers 11 weeks ago. I've lost 47 pounds to date, and couldn't be more pleased. I saw this book on their web site and ordered it because I am really getting into the science of weight loss. This book takes on and refutes a number of myths. They're actually quite fair, acknowledging the bits of truth embedded in each before presenting the larger truth. It's done in a very sound, calm manner, without being boring or pedantic. And there's true science behind all of it, not the junk science of the South Beach Diet for example. I even had one of my own beliefs refuted, the supposed metabolic after-glow from aerobic exercise. The only problem is there are Weight Watchers testimonials inserted every few pages, interfering with the flow. But at this price, I'm not going to complain further.

    A great book.

    It's so funny how quickly people jump on the latest diet fad again and again in their quest to lose weight. If people would take the time to get the facts about weight loss before they start, by reading books such as this one, they would likely save themselves a lot of time and money. This book does not promise you the body you want in 6 weeks, rather it is a book of facts, a book that has been meticulousy molded from the research- and a darn good one. Its chief aim is to bust 10 of the biggest weight loss myths out there, thereby making your weight loss journey much, much easier. Each chapter is devoted to a myth, clearing up the misconception, and leaving you with action steps. Case studies abound and the book ends with a heckuva reference section to back-up what it says- amen! Just a very empowering book, I recommend it to ANYONE who is struggling to lose weight. Besides being very informative, it is also very motivational.
