The weight-loss journey doesn't have to be restrictive, complicated or expensive. Nor should it negatively impact our health.
Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) July 22, 2015
As consumers are inundated by a torrent of various weight-loss plans, a new book by registered dietitian Lisa Tillinger Johansen explores the truth behind dozens of the most wildly popular diets of recent years. Based on solid medical research instead of hype, Stop The Diet, I Want To Get Off! has been hailed as a must-read for anyone seeking the best path to healthy and lasting weight loss.
Johansen, whose debut nutrition book Fast Food Vindication received the prestigious Discovery Award (sponsored by USA Today, Kirkus Reviews and The Huffington Post), utilizes her years of hospital experience, weight-loss seminars and community outreach efforts to reveal tried-and-true weight-loss strategies. Along the way, she looks at a wide range of trendy fad diets angling for a piece of a $60 billion industry.
“I counsel clients on a wide range of health issues,” Johansen says, “but almost every day I’m asked about diets they’ve heard about from celebrity endorsers, TV doctors and corporate ads. Some of these diets have value, but many have no basis in science and more than a few can be harmful to our health. People may not know that. That’s why I wrote this book.”
With insight and humor, Stop The Diet, I Want To Get Off! shows that the best answer is often not a trendy celebrity-endorsed weight-loss plan, but easy-to-follow guidelines that are best for dieters’ health and waistlines.
“For the most part, simple and common sense tips are the best,” Johansen says. “The weight-loss journey doesn’t have to be restrictive, complicated or expensive. Nor should it negatively impact our health.”
Stop The Diet, I Want to Get Off! is available in paperback and eBook formats wherever books are sold.
