Stop Dieting and Lose Weight

How the Food Industry is Keeping us Fat and How We Can Fix It

by

Have you ever been on a diet and struggled through it, only to gain back the weight you’ve lost? Do you feel like you can’t eat the foods you love, because they're adding inches to your waist? Why do we sometimes feel like we just can’t stop eating our favourite treats, even though we know they're bad for us?

Don’t worry; it is not your fault! The Food Industry is doing everything in its power to keep you eating to increase their profits -and your waistline. If you want to know how the Food Industry is ruining our health and how you can get your health back on track, than this book is a must read.

Learn about the amount of sugar we all consume on a daily basis, and the severe health issues it is causing. Learn how to avoid these sugar traps, and take away an arsenal of tips and tricks to help you get healthy. This book will help you make the right choices for a healthy lifestyle, rather than living a life of fad diets and cutting out all of your favourite foods.

Say goodbye to calorie restrictions and say hello to a healthy and happy you.

My first thought when I started reading "Stop Dieting and Lose Weight" was that the title was a contradiction. Up until I read Philip’s book, I thought dieting and weight loss went hand in hand. How could you lose weight if you’re not dieting? Philip provides the answer to this (and many more questions that I had personally) in the first few chapters of his book. What’s more, he does it with an uncomplicated and back-to-basics approach.

My previous experience of most nutritional advice or guidance is that it gets bogged down in too much science, too quickly which has usually resulted in me having more questions than answers and defaulting back to familiar habits. Or they avoid science completely and take the prescriptive approach of telling you to "eat this, not that", without ever explaining why. With Stop Dieting and Lose Weight, I personally felt like I was being told what questions I should ask before I eat something. To me, this is a distinguishing feature about this book: it's made adjusting my eating habits sustainable because I finally understand how to make better choices.

As a parent trying to raise a healthy family, and as an adult approaching an age where many of my peers and colleagues seem to be getting afflicted with chronic illnesses brought on by lifestyle choices over the years, I feel like this book has been a long overdue wake-up call. By dispelling some common myths that I’ve long held as truths (such as breakfast being the most important meal of the day, or the fact that you can offset unhealthy eating by exercising regularly), as well as including small food hacks that pack huge benefits (see the sections on apple cider vinegar and psyllium husk), this is a book that has enabled me to start making smarter food choices for myself and my family.

As someone who has tried most diets out there, this book resonated with me. It is such an optimistic approach. Philip provides a practical and do-able approach to weight loss. The problem with diets is that willpower weakens over time and as soon as "life happens" or we have a moment of weakness, we revert right back to our old habits. It doesn’t help that the Food Industry is doing everything in its power to help us make the wrong choices!
The best about the ideas in this book, are that they’re so simple and anyone can do them. This book is a must read for anyone who has been unsuccessful losing weight in the past and full of helpful information and tips to lead you in the right direction. Basically it is a book of common sense where weight loss is concerned. I highly recommend it! It certainly makes you think about what you put in your mouth.

This is the first book I've read that helped me understand what's really going on when I eat...and why I want to eat more!! I've already started to think differently and change my eating habits. It really is a must read for anyone fed up with just dieting and not getting anywhere. Terrific piece of work.
