Some diet books will have you shredding off the pounds, some sleeping them off.
Many people buy the latest diet books as hot-off the press as they can get them, either because they are committed to a healthy way of living and always eager to try something new or because they look good on the coffee table.
Either way, when a new diet book comes out, it’s always good to try keep an open mind ― not always easy with done-to-death book covers of tape measures, synched waists with titles claiming amazing results with chop-sticks, lemon juice, or ‘fat-fighting’ pancakes, and all written by “top wellness” experts.
A recent noise-generating book is New York Times Best Seller “Shred: The Revolutionary Diet ‚ 6 Weeks, 4 Inches, 2 Sizes, by Dr. Ian K. Smith. The book may have led to Smith’s “shredder nation” Facebook page going viral, but it boils down to not much more than a good eating-plan. No harm in that, but you’ve heard it a hundred time – there is no overnight weight-loss solution no matter how big the hype.
Another book worth mentioning is “The Overnight Diet: The Proven Plan for Fast, Permanent Weight Loss by Caroline Apovian with Frances Sharpe. Described by Barnes&Noble as “the world’s first medically proven diet to produce instant, lasting results,” (although they said that about the South Beach diet) the book describes rapid weight loss, just while you sleep. Dubious as it may sound the book does propose a healthy diet composed of low-fat dairy, whole grains, lean protein, fruits and veggies.
The good news is that everyone in the business at least agrees that weight loss and dieting are less about detoxing, starvation and a glowing skin, and more about better eating and a healthier attitude to life!
