Escape the Diet Trap Synopsis

The Problem Rates of obesity continue to rise, despite a wealth of nutrition advice. While specific diets vary in approach, the advice is generally underpinned by the calorie principle: weight loss is simply a matter of eating less or exercising more. Yet both science and anecdote frequently reveal that this doesn't work beyond the short term. The Solution Escape the Diet Trap reveals why taking a calorie-based approach to weight loss essentially dooms us to failure. The dieter is not at fault, the approach is. Presenting ways of eating that offer enjoyable, satisfying fat loss, without extensive exercise, calorie-control or hunger, Escape the Diet Trap shows how to escape the cycle of restrictive attempts at weight loss and establish a healthy, sustainable relationship to food.

Escape the Diet Trap Press Reviews

'I am relishing this phenomenal, science-based demolition of the bankrupt diet and 'healthy eating'advice that's been churned out by the nutrition establishment for the last fifty years. Why dieting is a total waste of time. Why fat is not the enemy. The 'slimming' foods that actually encourage you to put on weight. Why you should base your eating on time-honoured unprocessed foods, not the low-cal junk that fills food industry coffers. A really important book.'
Joanna Blythman
