The Paleo. The Zone. The Gluten-free. Another day, another diet. We’re caught in a never-ending merry-go-round of weight loss plans, fueled by celebrity endorsers, TV doctors and companies angling for a piece of a $60 billion industry. But do these diets really work? And how healthy are they?
Registered Dietitian Lisa Tillinger Johansen examines dozens of the most wildly popular diets based on medical facts, not hype. And along the way, she reveals tried-and-true weight loss strategies, relying on her years of hospital experience, weight-loss seminars and community outreach efforts. With insight and humor, Stop The Diet, I Want To Get Off shows that the best answer is often not a trendy celebrity-endorsed diet, but easy-to-follow guidelines that are best for our health and our waistlines.

I am going to be honest I am not one for diet books, not that I have read a lot of them mind you. This one is a lot of reading, very informative I will give it that, its amazing how many fad diets there are our there and how many people get roped into them.
The author approached this in an informative way listing what is good and bad for you and many tips on getting started.
It was good insight into the fad diets and the proper way of dieting – though I hate the word diet.
