From the Head of Nutrition and Wellness at WW and former Good Housekeeping Nutrition Director comes a scientifically-based, simple and straightforward guide to healthful habits for weight loss.

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 — head of Nutrition and Wellness at WW and former 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.
