You’ve seen the claims: Give us six weeks and you’ll take off the weight! Lose weight without dieting or exercising! You may have even tried a fad diet or two, only to gain the weight back and feel like there’s no hope to achieve your goal.

Simply stated, weight loss is complicated. There is no single solution that works for everyone. Diet Lies and Weight Loss Truths cuts through all the noise and provides real evidence and practical guidance on choosing a diet plan that will work for you to effectively and safely lose excess weight and keep it off. You’ll find answers to the following questions:
  • What are the basic concepts of a successful weight loss plan?
  • What difficulties might you encounter?
  • How can you sift through the hype of popular diets to get the facts?
With over 200 references, you’ll see the science that explains the biological, genetic, and psychological components that make weight loss difficult—without needing to be a scientist to understand it. Get the pros and cons of 12 popular diet styles like keto, low carb, raw food, and cleanses so you can decide if they are right for you. Implement realistic diet planning strategies as well as sample meal plans from a registered dietitian to create a solution for your lifestyle and goals. Hear from clients about the practical advice they received that helped them make lasting lifestyle changes to lose weight and keep it off.

There is no magic diet scheme, meal plan, or one-size-fits-all workout that will help everyone achieve their weight loss goals, but Diet Lies and Weight Loss Truths is the trustworthy, evidence-based guidebook you need to find the approach that will work for you.
