10 Habits that Mess Up a Woman's Diet
By AM Northwest Staff
With concise writing and solid clinical research, registered dietitian Somer (Food and Mood) helps readers identify and understand 10 common problems that can stand in the way of losing weight and provides the tools to change those habits. According to Somer, at least half of people's harmful habits occur not at the dinner table, but in their heads. Examples include eating without thinking, not being honest about how much one eats and using food to alter one's mood. Somer identifies practical mistakes, too, such as shopping the wrong supermarket aisles and choosing the wrong social drinks. An extremely helpful chapter uses solid medical research to debunk many of the most popular weight-loss myths. The author teaches by example and offers intelligent quizzes that help readers identify where they are faltering. What sets this book apart from the many diet books out there is that it not only works on its own to improve eating habits and encourage healthy weight loss, but its useable advice can make any sensible weight-loss plan easier to follow.
