The Take-Control Diet aims to make you the expert on your
Dr. Ian Smith delivers the final word on dieting for the fad-weary
reader who wants the truth about permanent weight loss. The
Take-Control Diet explains the real science of how your body
manages energy, why crash diets and trendy programs sabotage your
chances of success, and how you can get off the yo-yo ride
Dr. Smith offers a diet and exercise program that allows you to eat
without feeling deprived, or adopting an entirely specialized diet,
and that helps you use both anaerobic and aerobic exercise for
maximum weight loss results. He explains how to calculate your own
individual food-and-exercise equation in order to lose the ideal
amount of weight per week.
The Take-Control Diet equips you with the facts so that you can
approach your health and fitness goals psychologically fortified
for the task. Understanding common myths about dieting will give
you the knowledge you need to resolve your weight issues for good.
Did you know that, contrary to the recommendations of many popular
diets, eating too much protein could seriously damage your health?
That it is impossible to convert fat to muscle? That starving
yourself slows your metabolism and causes your body to store energy
as fat? That no foods appreciably increase your metabolism? That
chronic, yo-yo dieting makes weight loss increasingly
Dr. Smith explains the causes of overweight, the health concerns of
dieting, how metabolism and genetics factor in to weight control,
and what you can do to work with, rather than against, your body's
processes. Many diets dictate a program that might work--if it
works at all--only as long as you can adhere to radical and
unnatural habits. The Take-Control Diet, instead, equips you to
design your own eating and exercise plan--one that accommodates
your preferences, your daily routine, and your particular weight
Losing weight will not only help you look your best but also reduce
your risk of heart disease, diabetes, and cancer--in addition to
improving your overall energy level and ability to fight illness.
Dr. Smith offers a plan, based on extensive research and his
personal work with patients, that respects your intelligence and
empowers you to win the battle with overweight.
The Take-Control Diet is one hundred percent free of unrealistic
promises, poor science, and far-fetched gimmicks--and one hundred
percent yours for life.
