A Physician's Slimming Guide
for Permanent Weight Control
Neal D. Barnard, M.D.
This book offers a new approach to weight control. If your goal is a slimmer body and more energy than you have had in years, this program is more powerful than any diet you have ever tried. It is not a diet. It is a comprehensive program that brings about better weight control than old-fashioned diets ever could.
In this program, we will not compromise. We will use all the factors that are known to promote permanent healthful weight control. You will boost your metabolic rate through food selection, shift your menu from calorie-dense fatty foods to foods with a much better nutrient make-up, and bring in other ways to burn calories more effectively.
This book was written because most diets have not been very successful. Many are simply too weak to get results. Others use an articifial "formula approach" that no one could live with permanently. They may cause a phenomenal weight loss for a few weeks, followed by a huge weight gain back to and beyond the starting point. These frustrating results are caused by the poor design of the diets.
There is a much better way. You can succeed in becoming and staying slimmer!
