Price: $8.99
Despite the fact that we are a diet-crazed society, the obesity epidemic has reached an all time high in 2016. Obviously, our so-called “War on Obesity" isn’t working. Dr. Heidi Wohlrabe and Ileana Riveron blow the whistle on the 60 billion dollar weight loss industry and expose dieting as the gateway drug that leads to anorexia, bulimia, binge-eating, obesity and every other form of disordered eating. Using wit and humor to make complex topics easy to digest, they deliver: scientific evidence to dispel myths about exercise and dieting, secrets to gaining a faster metabolism, pathways to recovery from obesity, eating disorders and body dissatisfaction, and psychological tools necessary for sustained success. Healthy and Lean: The Science of Metabolism and the Psychology of Weight Management empowers readers with a research-based understanding of nutritional science so that they can escape fad diets and become happy, healthy and lean for life.

    As a musician often on the go, health has always been not only a priority but also a necessity. I have read many health books and spent a lot of time on research regarding nutrition and exercise; however, this book is one of the most enjoyable yet practical, easy to digest (pun intended) yet informative books on this topic that I have read. In addition, Dr. Wohlrabe and Ms. Riveron offer not just statistics and scientific information, but also suggestions on what healthy eating and exercise might look like in real life. The dedication and effort they have put into this book is evident and has re-inspired me to be diligent in my journey to well-being and nourishing my mind, body and soul. Just having finished the book, I have given copies to my family and friends and intend on reading it again to make sure that I have absorbed the information.

    A must buy! Healthy and Lean, The Science of Metabolism and the Psychology of Weight Management, is a must read! As a physician, anesthesiologist and former ballet dancer, I am extremely passionate about health and optimal nutrition. After 25 years in practice and caring for many thousands of patients, I have seen firsthand how the choices we make affect our health and longevity. Dr. Wohlrabe and Ileana Riveron's book is well researched and thought provoking. The style of writing is extremely engaging. As a huge fan of non-fiction books, I have read many books on nutrition and health - this is the best one hands down! I've started many books but have finished very few. I couldn't put this book down I found it so fascinating. Regardless of the number on the scale, anyone can benefit from this book. Although it covers the full spectrum of disordered eating from anorexia and bulimia to obesity, this book is also for those simply trying to make better food choices. It is about taking care... More > of yourself and includes a great discussion on cognitive therapy (how to have better conversations with yourself). I highly recommend Healthy and Lean! It contains a wealth of information and is fun to read. It is such an excellent purchase, I have bought copies for patients and family members!< Less
