Product Overview

Whether your goal for your body is to lose a dress size or to avoid being seen by Google Earth, many Americans are in the same exact blubbery boat. You've tried dozens of diets, you've sweated so much that your drippings could fill an Olympic-size pool, and you've become convinced that skinny was synonymous with starvation. Those answers undoubtedly were the wrong ones. The real secret to achieving — and maintaining — the body you want is this: biology.

In YOU: On a Diet, Dr. Michael Roizen and Dr. Mehmet Oz taught you how to avoid the most common dieting pitfalls — from both a biological and psychological perspective. This revised edition has all of the original goods, and more! In this edition, you'll learn why fructose is such a poison to an overweight person and why your weight doesn't matter as much as your waist size. You'll learn about the inner workings of an organ called the omentum. You'll learn why it's okay to make some dieting mistakes — and then how to reverse them. And you'll learn — perhaps most important — that the way to truly change your size is by making the simplest change of all: reducing your daily diet by just 100 calories. Research shows that making this small adjustment will lead to the greatest, long-term dieting success.

With this knowledge (and plenty of tools you can use) in hand, you'll be fully equipped to coax your body in the right direction. Using their signature style that's smart and fun, America's most trusted doctors will teach you all about your body — so you can take all the right steps to change it.

From the Publisher
Annotation Loaded with biology lessons, tests, tips, and eating plans, the diet book created by Drs. Roizen and Oz delves deeply into body chemistry. Their very tempting promise is to remove two inches from the waist in two weeks if the plan is followed properly. The authors consider the fat padding the waist to be an important indicator of health, and believe that taking care to adjust body chemistry is far more effective than the suffering and deprivation commonly associated with dieting. This information-packed follow-up to YOU: THE OWNER'S MANUAL has a great deal of helpful advice about good eating habits, exercise, and ways of reprogramming the body to follow healthier regimes. A 2006 Publishers Weekly Book of the Year.
Editors Note The former health expert for The Oprah Winfrey Show and star of The Dr. Oz Show joins his coauthor to present a revised edition of their popular diet book, updated with discussions of the latest fads and new tips and tricks for getting fit and healthy--and staying that way.
