Why You Need to Read This “Diet” Book

These days, diet books are a dime a dozen, but few books combine the lived experience of someone who has implemented that diet and seen amazing results with the scientific research that supports and explains why the eating plan works. In Why Diets Fail, you gain all the latest scientific knowledge and expertise from Dr. Avena, who has a PhD in psychology and neuroscience and is an expert in the fields of addiction, nutrition, and obesity, informed by insights from John, who has lived through this experience.

     Moreover, you will learn about some fascinating research discoveries that you may not yet be aware of, many of which may explain why certain approaches that you have taken in the past to lose weight have been unsuccessful. All too often, research findings are reported in scholarly journals or discussed among researchers and members of the scientific community, and even though they may have direct application to human life, they rarely reach the larger public. Thus, such findings fail to have a significant effect on the day-to-day lives of the people who could benefit. That’s why this book is so valuable. Together, we’ll explain why John’s revelation, and resolution, regarding addiction to sugars was beneficial to his life, and could be to yours, in so many ways.

     Although diet will certainly be discussed, we’re reticent to call this a “diet” book, as that term doesn’t necessarily reflect how extremely valuable this book can be to individuals who struggle to achieve and maintain a healthy body weight. But trust us, when you implement the diet, like John did, you can reawaken to a life that is more fulfilling, fun, and rewarding than anything you could have imagined.

Synopsis:

This revolutionary eating plan reveals definitive proof that sugar is addictive, and presents the first science-based program to cut out the sugar, stop the cravings that cause most diets to eventually fail, and lose weight--permanently.

 

Most diets work for a while...but there usually comes a point when the dieter can't maintain the strict dietary changes required to lose additional pounds or keep the weight off. Why? Because cravings take over and, as with cigarettes or drugs, the pull becomes too strong to resist. In Why Diets Fail, Dr. Nicole M. Avena and John R. Talbott explain that sugar addiction underlies those cravings and share a revolutionary plan for going sugar-free and sticking to the diet during the make-or-break withdrawal period. An easy-to-use sugar equivalency table expresses the amount of sugar in 600-plus common foods so dieters know precisely what to eat and what to avoid.

Synopsis:

JOHN R. TALBOTT is the bestselling author of nine books whose work has appeared in the Wall Street Journal, Financial Times, Boston Globe, San Francisco Chronicle, and The New Republic, and on the Huffington Post and Salon.com; he has appeared as a commentator on CNBC, Fox News, CBS, MSNBC, Fox Business News, and CSPAN, as well as on hundreds of radio programs.
