Annotation 1 Dispells the myths and wrong thinking that interfere with healthy weight management and offers a program that has helped the author's patients lose weight--and keep it off for good.

Annotation 2 Identifies flaws in the way most people approach dieting to outline an empowering plan for lasting results, exposing popular misconceptions while explaining how the author's strategies can be used in conjunction with mainstream weight-loss programs. (Diet & Nutrition)

Annotation 3 With The Diet Fix, weight loss expert Dr. Yoni Freedhoff offers a groundbreaking, useable guide to begin living happily while losing weight permanently.

It is time to break the cycle of traumatic dieting. Despite the success stories publicized by Atkins, South Beach, Weight Watchers, and others, 90% of all diets end in failure. How can we fix the way we lose weight so that we make results last? Whether used on its own or in conjunction with any other diet, Dr. Freedhoff’s program shows how to replace a toxic dieting mindset with positive beliefs and behaviors.
 
Dr. Freedhoff has uncovered the flawed thinking that sabotages even the most earnest weight loss efforts. The majority of dieting or weight loss programs call for regular sacrifice: Give up an entire food group; fight hunger day and night; undertake exhausting and grueling exercise regiments. These approaches are unrealistic, unhealthy, and make it nearly impossible to maintain results. 

Now, at last, there is hope. In The Diet Fix, Dr. Freedhoff offers a tested program for breaking down the negative thought patterns that prevent people from losing weight and keeping it off.  Through the course of years of research and patient treatment, he has developed a 10-Day Reset that supports losing weight while maintaining a healthy, enjoyable lifestyle. This reset is designed to eliminate the habits that so often lead to weight gain: use it to shut down cravings, prevent indulgences from turning into binges, and break up with the scale once and for all. The 10-Day Reset can make any diet more effective, whether it’s low-carb, low-fat, meal replacement, calorie tracking, or anything in between.

PW Reviews 2014 February #1

Canadian bariatric physician Freedhoff aims to reach millions suffering from "Post Traumatic Dieting Disorder": an unofficial condition bred from serial dieting—guilt, shame, failure, depression, binge eating, and weight cycling/metabolic slowdown—and not unlike PSTD, according to the author. Freedhoff dispels pervading myths about dieting, warns against the "seven deadly sins" (hunger, sacrifice, willpower, blind restriction, sweat, perfectionism, and denial), and instructs readers to replace tenuous willpower with "skillpower" as they learn the key triad to healthy weight loss: organization, planning, and thoughtfulness. To this end, Freedhoff offers a 10-Day Reset, a regimen that is as much cognitive psychology as physiology. Learning and effecting a new skill, strategy, or mindset each day while building on previous days helps readers learn to weigh and measure food, keep a journal, banish hunger, cook and eat at home, think positively, exercise, indulge a bit, eat out wisely, set goals, troubleshoot, and move forward. The plan is followed by "The Recovery," which provides practical instructions for getting beyond the failures of other diets, from Optifast to Atkins. Freedhoff is a one-man cheering squad with a down-to-earth, resonant, real-world weight-loss prescription focusing on a dieter's personal best. Enhanced with case studies, 35 pages of recipes, resources lists, plus the author's Web site and award-winning blog, this book will help dieters win by losing. (Mar.)
