Get the real skinny on fat.
When it comes to losing weight, the false beliefs most of us cling to could fill a book–this one! As a medical doctor, medical journalist, and veteran of the diet wars, Nancy L. Snyderman knows better than almost anyone what really works and what sabotages your best efforts to shed pounds and keep them off. Do you believe any of these prevalent diet myths?
• Your weight is your fault.
• Dieting is a waste of time–most dieters regain their weight before long.
• Carbs are bad for you.
• Carbs are good for you.
• Calories don’t count–it’s the kind of food you eat that’s the problem.
• Fat is fat–it doesn’t matter where on your body you carry it.
• Diet drugs and surgeries are a magic bullet.
In Diet Myths That Keep Us Fat , Dr. Snyderman reveals exactly why these and other bogus ideas get in the way of what should be the simple and even joyful endeavor of reaching and maintaining your ideal weight. In their place, she reveals 101 surprising truths–muscle doesn’t weigh more than fat, you can eat after 8 p.m. and not gain weight, you can eat dessert for dinner when on a diet, and 98 more. But here’s the best news: Slimming down and getting healthier doesn’t have to be about deprivation or superhuman feats of willpower. Instead, you will enjoy a new relationship with food–including those treats you love the most–while feeling fabulous inside and out.
So forget the fad diets that work great . . . until they don’t, along with the negative emotions associated with everything from bathroom scales to full-length mirrors. Most of all, forget all the myths and remember what’s true: You can do this and you’ll never regret it for a minute.

Diet Myths That Keep Us Fat
Very few of us are ever entirely happy with our weight,
and I hate the feeling of putting on a few extra pounds.
But I’ve found some healthy and acceptable ways to get
down to a healthy weight– things that really work. If
you’re like I once was– tired of going on and off diets
and up and down in weight– I’m going to help you get
and stay naturally fit while eating anything you want,
not depriving yourself, and appreciating the wonderful
body you have.
How can I make such claims? I am a veteran of the diet
wars, a doctor, and a reporter. Between medical school,
my internship, and my residency, getting pregnant for the
first time in my thirties and the second time in my forties,
and doing live television, I’ve done it all: I’ve starved
myself, and I’ve pigged out; I’ve binged, dieted, skipped
meals, and lived to tell about it.
I subsisted on vanilla wafers and black coffee while
serving my residency in pediatrics. I relied on graham
crackers and peanut butter during my surgical training.
I’ve been on liquid diets and protein diets– one week

when I spent so much time poking my head in the fridge
that my nose got frostbite. Add what ever you’ve done to
this list, and I would understand. But finally, when diet
became a four- letter word to me, I said, Enough is enough.
I started making friends with food.
So now I have an easy rule. I regard food as fuel. I eat
foods I like– even some things that might...
