The Paleo. The Zone. The Gluten-free. Another day, another diet. We're caught in a never-ending merry-go-round of weight loss plans, fueled by celebrity endorsers, TV doctors and companies angling for a piece of a $60 billion industry.
But do these diets really work? And how healthy are they?

weight-loss seminars and community outreach efforts. With insight and humor,
Stop The Diet, I Want To Get Off shows that the best answer is often not a trendy celebrity-endorsed diet, but easy-to-follow guidelines that are best for our health and our waistlines.

Lisa Tillinger Johansen in her new book, “Stop the Diet, I Want To Get Off!” published by J. Murray Press gives us Fad Diets, Bad Diets and a guide to healthy eating for life.

With insight and humor, Stop The Diet, I Want To Get Off shows that the best answer is often not a trendy celebrity-endorsed diet, but easy-to-follow guidelines that are best for our health and our waistlines. The American Diet industry tops $60 billion annually. They are a dictatorship that is making lots of money off of us and we are not winning in this war on fat. The loser is our health. We are looking at the diets to get us trim and healthy and we have given up our authority which is one of the reason why we are losing. Dr. Johansen has written this book so that we can see through all the fads and have the facts. She has divided the book into two parts: Part One: The Skinny gives us what we need to know about diets and fads and the merry-go-round. Then in Part Two: The Plan she gives us the nutrition information that we need to make healthy decisions. This is an incredible resource that we all should have and use it is that good!

I have never been a fan of diets. Only because I don't have the discipline to stick with one. Also, I don't want to be tied down to counting calories or being told what to eat. So why do you say would I want to read this book? Well because I already have the exercise part checked but the eating healthy part is a little struggle. Wow, I did not know there were so many different diets currently circulating around the globe. Some I had heard of before like Atkins, South Beach, Paleo, and Zone. I liked the way that Lisa broke down each diet and how they are unhealthy in one form or another. Which as I was reading this book I appreciated that Lisa talked at my level and not above me. However I do have to admit that there are parts where I could skim this book and still not feel like I missed anything. I did not feel like I took that much more knowledge from this book then what I have already read from the internet. Overall, this was a good read.
