“How To Not Diet” by Dr. Michael Greger outlines how a plant based diet can assist in weight loss. This article details all of Dr. Greger’s sixteen steps for Optimal Health, and his eleven tweaks for increased health benefits. Each week, he posts a new step and explanation, which are also linked below.
The primary focus of this book is the benefits of plant foods in weight loss. Specifically, it discusses the deficiencies that result from modern eating habits. The good food is described as healthy fat, organ meat and fresh produce. For instance, lean red meats are recommended instead of white meats. Grains and seeds are recommended instead of processed sugars and white flour products.
In addition to good nutrition, this book goes beyond food to discuss some of the most popular methods for burning stored fat: supplements, fasting, yoga, hypnosis and other alternative methods. Dr. Greger claims that a diet based on plant nutrition is superior to a diet based on processed foods and sugary snacks. While the book has no real supporting evidence, there is plenty of anecdotal evidence to corroborate its claims. The end result is probably a personal preference for what works for you.
This is the second edition of the book that was once sold only as an e-book. With more than one hundred pages of new material and sixteen new chapters, How Not to Diet offers a wider variety of solutions for losing weight. Much of the content is based on the information that is presented in the previous portions of the book. That’s why this book is so helpful as a nutrition expert’s reference manual. It contains everything you need to know about reducing calorie intake, carbohydrates intake, protein intake, fats intake and the impact of saturated fats on health.
Beyond Food by Drs. Greger and Price take this further by introducing a new chapter focusing on how not to diet. The authors claim this new chapter offers readers real solutions and practical advice instead of just another dieting tip. This chapter helps dieters get through the most common hurdles that they encounter when attempting to lose weight. Beyond Food helps dieters learn how not to starve themselves, how to choose and prepare healthy meals and how to plan a proper grocery shopping list. This second edition of the popular self-help guide to dieting has helped a lot of people successfully lose weight.
