Synopsis

Put an end to dieting and replace weight loss struggles with this easy approach to a healthy, plant-based lifestyle, from the bestselling author of How Not to Die.

Every month seems to bring a trendy new diet or weight-loss fad – but they aren't making us healthier or happier, and with obesity rates continuing to rise alongside a number of diseases and health problems, it’s time for a different approach.

How Not to Diet is a treasure trove of buried data and cutting-edge dietary research that Dr Michael Greger has translated into accessible, actionable advice with exciting tools and tricks that will help you to eliminate unwanted body fat – for good.

Dr Greger, renowned nutrition expert and founder of NutritionFacts.org, explores the many causes of obesity – from our genes to the portions on our plate to other environmental factors – and the many consequences, from diabetes to cancer to mental health issues. From there, Dr Greger breaks down a variety of approaches to weight loss, honing in on the optimal criteria that enable success, including: a diet high in fibre and water, a diet low in fat, salt, and sugar, and diet full of anti-inflammatory foods.

How Not to Diet goes beyond food to identify twenty-one weight loss accelerators available to us in our body’s systems, incorporating the latest discoveries in cutting-edge areas like chronobiology to reveal the factors that maximize our natural fat-burning capabilities. This is the ultimate weight-loss guide, taking a timeless, proactive approach that can stand up to any new trend.
