Eat as much as you want, whenever you want. Welcome to the end of dieting.
The Standard American Diet, augmented by the USDA’s food pyramid, has led us to believe that a diet centered on animal products and highly refined processed food is a perfectly acceptable and healthy way to eat. But it’s really just a steady helping of bad food and bad information, the precursors to bad habits and bad health. We’re fatter, sicker, and hungrier than ever before, and the billion-dollar diet industry-with its trendy weight-loss protocols and eat-this-not-that ratios of fat, carbs, and protein-offers only temporary short-term solutions at the expense of our permanent long-term health. As a result, we’re trapped in a cycle of food addiction, toxic hunger, and overeating.
In the End of Dieting, Joel Fuhrman, M.D., a board-certified doctor and the New York Times bestselling author of Eat to Live and The End of Diabetes, shows us how to break free from this mindset once and for all. Dr. Fuhrman lays out in full all the dietary and nutritional advice necessary to eat our way to a healthier and happier life. At the center of his revolutionary plan is his trademark health formula: Health = Nutrients /Calories. According to Dr. Fuhrman, foods with a high nutrient density are more satisfying than foods high in calories and eliminate our cravings for fat, sweets, and carbs. The more nutrient-dense food we consume, the more our bodies can function as the self-healing machines they’re designed to be. The weight comes off and stays off, diseases reverse course and disappear, and we live longer, healthier lives.
In the process, Dr. Fuhrman explains the crucial difference between toxic hunger and real hunger, as well as the physical and emotional triggers behind our poor eating habits. He debunks the misleading science behind popular fad diets and demonstrates that his approach to eating is the last word on dieting. And finally, he offers for the first time a fail-safe plan the enables readers to easily implement his tested approach to sustainable weight-loss and superior health.
The End of Dieting is the book and lifestyle we deserve—a proven, effective, and sustainable new approach to eating that lets us prevent and reverse disease, lose weight, and reclaim our right to excellent health.
