In this example-filled book, Meine wages war against Diet Chaos, not only shedding light on why it occurs in most popular diet programs, but also teaching readers how to avoid it and create a clear path to their goals. This book is a must-read for anyone ready to stop yo-yo dieting and build a foundation for lasting weight loss. Ever bombed a diet program? As David Meine reveals in Diet Chaos, it's not your fault. Research suggests that up to 95% of dieters regain the weight they lose on a diet. The modern approach to whittling our waistlines-a "laundry list" of tactics applied all at once-is chaotic, Meine explains, and thus doomed to fail. From sending the body into shock (which causes it to actually hoard fat), to filling our minds with anxiety (the kind that makes us crave high-fat, high-calorie foods), Meine illustrates how the dieting frenzy inevitably backfires-leading people right back to the bulges they started with.
