For the first time in our history, scientists are uncovering
astounding medical evidence about dieting -- and why so many
of us struggle with our weight and the size of our waists.
Now researchers are unraveling biological secrets about such
things as why you crave chocolate or gorge at buffets or
store so much fat.
Michael Roizen and Mehmet Oz, America's most trusted doctor
team and authors of the bestselling YOU series, are now
translating this cutting-edge information to help you shave
inches off your waist. They're going to do it by giving you
the best weapon against fat: knowledge. By understanding how
your body's fat-storing and fat-burning systems work, you're
going to learn how to crack the code on true and lifelong
Roizen and Oz will invigorate you with equal parts
information, motivation, and change-your-life action to show
you how your brain, stomach, hormones, muscles, heart,
genetics, and stress levels all interact biologically to
determine if your body is the size of a baseball bat or of a
baseball stadium. In YOU: On a Diet, Roizen and Oz
will redefine what a healthy figure is, then take you
through an under-theskin tour of the organs that influence
your body's size and its health. You'll even be convinced
that the key number to fixate on is not your weight, but
your waist size, which best indicates the medical risks of
storing too much fat.
Because the world has almost as many diet plans as it has
e-mail spammers, you'd think that just about all of us would
know everything there is to know about dieting, about fat,
and about the reasons why our bellies have grown so large.
YOU: On a Diet is much more than a diet plan or a
series of instructions and guidelines or a faddish
berries-only eating plan. It's a complete manual for waist
management. It will show you how to achieve and maintain an
ideal and healthy body size by providing a lexicon according
to which any weight-loss system can be explained. YOU: On
a Diet will serve as the operating system that
facilitates future evolution in our dieting software. After
you learn about the biology of your body and the biology and
psychology of fat, you'll be given the YOU Diet and YOU
Workout. Both are easy to learn, follow, and maintain.
Following a two-week rebooting program will help you lose up
to two inches from your waist right from the start.
With Roizen and Oz's signature accessibility, wit, and
humor, YOU: On a Diet -- The Owner's Manual for Waist
Management will revolutionize the way you think about
yourself and the food you consume, so that you'll diet
smart, not hard. Welcome to your body on a diet.
