Sue Baker's view...

Of all the diet books available this year, this is my top pick so far. Full of advice and explanations, John Briffa is not here to harang, he talks great sense, there is no calorie counting, no mad exercise regimes, instead he gives great advice and there are full explanations on just how to turn around your eating habits so that you can lose weight sensibly. Particularly good for yo-yo dieters and those who find they pile on even more pounds after the latest diet regime. With John Briffa there is no diet, it’s a plan for your future eating habits, plans that will lead to gradual and sustainable weight loss.

Synopsis

Escape the Diet Trap by John Briffa

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.

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
