restore their health for a lifetime.
Riverbank, CA (Vocus) February 28, 2010
Dr. George Edward Schauf, M.D., explains why most people’s overweight problems are intensified rather than improved with the launch of his “part expose, part self-help” book, The Calorie Conspiracy. Published through Xlibris, the book offers a challenge and a much healthier, more long-term alternative to the widespread Caloric Theory.
The Calorie Conspiracy builds on scientific evidence to offer an effective solution to eliminating and preventing obesity. It is an attempt at debunking obesity management programs that base on the flawed concept of “counting calories,” that is, the belief that one gains weight when one consumes more calories than expended, the solution to which is the converse.
In the book, Dr. Schauf introduces his own QQF (Quality, Quantity and Frequency) Theory, which states that it is what a person eats and how much of what, when and how often he eats that matters. Included in the discussion of the theory is the revelation on improper weight loss regimens that lead instead to loss of vital tissue, a serious consequence that must not be allowed to maintain good health. The QQF Theory offers a new, more comprehensive nutritional paradigm in solving obesity health issues in America, in the form of the QQF Lifetime Way of Eating. As well, it elaborates on the practice that is said to sum up the Theory, the Never After Breakfast rule.
Altogether, The Calorie Conspiracy presents a toolkit to help readers create positive, powerful habits of healthy living to overcome obesity and “restore their health for a lifetime.”
No other book currently challenges the very premise of conventional ‘weight loss’ itself.
