Debunk diet myths and make better food choices with this helpful guide that will transform the way you think about nutrition and health.
Whether it's a new fad, "detox" diet, news report or a celebrity-endorsed supplement, the constant flow of diet information is cluttered, conflicting, and often devoid of scientific research -- leaving millions of us confused, overwhelmed, and feeling totally helpless in taking ownership our health and making better food choices.
In Dressing on the Side, Jaclyn London -- the Nutrition Director of Good Housekeeping -- debunks the diet myths and mental blocks that keep you from reaching your health and weight-loss goals. Filled with accessible information, simple strategies, and practical application of scientific research, London breaks what's at the heart of the issue and offers tools, short-cuts, and solutions that work within any scenario, including:
- Using your schedule to inform your food choices
- Identifying "fake" nutrition news
- Eating to feel satisfied, not just "full"
- Making the choice to eat dessert -- daily
London empowers us to form life-long habits that result in real, long-lasting change -- while meeting the demands of our busier-than-ever lifestyles. Dressing on the Side is the anti-diet book that will completely transform the way you think (and speak!) about food and health -- and help you lose weight for good.
