Abstract:

"Every month seems to bring a trendy new diet or weight loss fad -- and yet obesity rates continue to rise, and with it a growing number of diseases and health problems. It's time for a different approach. Enter Dr. Michael Greger, the internationally-renowned nutrition expert, physician, and founder of Nutritionfacts.org. Author of the mega bestselling How Not to Die, Dr. Greger now turns his attention to the latest research on the leading causes -- and remedies -- of obesity. Dr. Greger hones in on the optimal criteria to enable weight loss, while considering how these foods actually affect our health and longevity. He lays out the key ingredients of the ideal weight-loss diet -- factors such as calorie density, the insulin index, and the impact of foods on our gut microbiome -- showing how plant-based eating is crucial to our success. But How Not to Diet goes beyond food to identify twenty-one weight-loss accelerators available to our bodies, incorporating the latest discoveries in cutting-edge areas like chronobiology to reveal the factors that maximize our natural fat-burning capabilities. Dr. Greger builds the ultimate weight loss guide from the ground up, taking a timeless, proactive approach that can stand up to any new trend. Chock full of actionable advice and groundbreaking dietary research, How Not to Diet will put an end to dieting -- and replace those constant weight-loss struggles with a simple, healthy, sustainable lifestyle."--
