“Secrets from the eating lab: The science of weight loss, the myth of willpower, and why you should never diet again.“
Prescribe FIT recommends this book to anyone who wants to achieve a healthy lifestyle WITHOUT strict dieting regimes.
According to the book’s website, “Why Should I Never Diet Again? Because diets don’t work. And you don’t need them to work, because you can be happy and healthy without dieting. Instead, we offer 12 smart regulation strategies that help you reach and maintain your leanest livable weight – the weight at the low end of your set range. These scientifically tested strategies work because they don’t fight biology or rely on willpower. They don’t require agonizing self-denial or a single-minded focus on your weight, so you can make these simple changes and then get on with the important things in life.”
