REVIEW AND GIVEAWAY OF THE DIET DROPOUT'S GUIDE TO NATURAL WEIGHT LOSS BY S. SPENCER

Many of us are always looking for ways to lose weight and make ourselves more fit. There are many different diet books out there and can provide you with information that may be confusing and inaccurate. The Diet Dropout's Guide to Natural Weight Loss: Find Your Easiest Path to Naturally Thin is packed with advice that will assist you in reaching your weight loss goals.

About the Book: 

This book isn't about the latest celebrity diet, wonder food, or miracle supplement. It's about creating a personalized weight loss plan—your own easiest path to naturally thin. While you can lose weight with almost any diet, keeping the weight off is much more difficult, requiring permanent changes in eating and exercise habits. This book provides a science-based approach for making those changes in a way that works best for you, without wasting time, money, or effort.
 
Dr. Spencer explains why we gain weight and why the fat lost by dieting almost always comes back. He then presents an array of practical weight loss tools for controlling emotional eating, calming cravings, boosting metabolism, and improving nutrition and exercise. In the final chapter he has you create a natural weight loss plan based on your unique set of needs, abilities, and preferences. Simple recipes are provided for weight loss foods that reduce cravings and prolong satisfaction.
 
What this book offers is a solid approach to weight loss—self-directed, gradual, and lasting—in contrast to the quick but fleeting weight loss offered by most one-size-fits-all diet plans. 


About the Author: 
Stan Spencer is a consulting biologist in Southern California, where he lives with his wife, Amy, and a varying number of their seven children. He earned a Ph.D. in botany at Claremont Graduate University and has conducted research in biochemistry at Brigham Young University, in adaptation and evolution at Claremont Graduate University, and in genetics at the Smithsonian Institution. Check out his informative guest post on making your weight loss a success.

My Thoughts:
I have read many books on diet and exercise that were either too complex or was unrealistic but this book was quite different. It is full of practical information that covers many topics including the physical and emotional reasons for overeating. The information was compiled from many different books and publications and written in a way that is concise and easy to understand. He not only encourages healthy eating and exercise but he takes a holistic view of weight loss and dieting. He includes numerous healthy recipes and worksheets to help you beat temptation and discusses the truth about common weight loss myths. So if you are tired of Yo Yo diets and want just the facts about weight loss then this is the book for you! 


CONTEST:
