Sensible diet advice from Lisa Tillinger Johansen.

Stop the Diet AUTHORThe author is a registered dietician and at last, we have a book containing practical and sensible advice for those of us who are wanting to lose weight and improve our health. Yes, here we have the top tips and advice for weight loss without becoming part of the $60 billion dieting industry.

Did that figure I just mentioned make you gulp? It’s true. You’ll have seen all the dieting ads that bombard us for the latest ‘miracle’ diet or special ‘slimming’ foods. So many celebrities, TV medics and huge companies are vying for our dieting dollars.

So many of us spent time – and lots of money – searching for that perfect diet. Sure, we might have tried many before, and failed but it’s only human nature, when faced with a new celebrity-endorsed weight loss product or plan, to think ‘maybe this will be the one that will finally work for me’.

And for some reason that is probably connected to our consumer-driven society, we often fool ourselves into thinking that spending money will equal success in our goal for a healthy, slim body.

Lisa explains in this book that fad diets have been around for a long time and that rarely do they work. But not only that. With knowledge and her own brand of humour, she explains why and how some of these diet plans and products can be downright harmful.

So what do we do?

What we’ve needed all along is someone to explain to us, in a simple and easy-to-understand way, something that deep down we know. But in this day and age it’s something that has been forgotten in the midst of all the conflicting advice and the latest dietary fads. That’s exactly what this book does.

The book doesn’t preach to you; the author understands how hard it can be to remain motivated and explains some valuable strategies. Unlike those fad diets, she doesn’t expect you to suddenly change the way you eat. If you do, you are likely to revert to your old eating habits before too long – those old eating habits that made you overweight and unhealthy in the first place.

Dieting for real people in the real world
