About the Book:Title: Stop the Diet, I Want To Get Off!
The Paleo. The Zone. The Gluten-free. Another day, another diet. We’re caught in a never-ending merry-go-round of weight loss plans, fueled by celebrity endorsers, TV doctors and companies angling for a piece of a $60 billion industry. But do these diets really work? And how healthy are they?
Registered Dietitian Lisa Tillinger Johansen examines dozens of the most wildly popular diets based on medical facts, not hype. And along the way, she reveals tried-and-true weight loss strategies, relying on her years of hospital experience, weight-loss seminars and community outreach efforts. With insight and humor, Stop The Diet, I Want To Get Off shows that the best answer is often not a trendy celebrity-endorsed diet, but easy-to-follow guidelines that are best for our health and our waistlines.
Stop the Diet, I Want to Get Off! is available at Amazon.

For anything wanting to learn more to make a healthy life style change to lose weight and keep it off this is a great book. The author gives us background on the fad diets and the ones that are workable compared to the ones that are unhealthy and will not achieve lasting weight loss. Lisa keeps this book light and easy to read. I find it isn't overly medical but she gives us lots of stats on research of different diets out there.
My favorite parts to this book is that portion control and choosing foods that are healthy but not limiting a food group is the way to go. I have been on a life style change the past year and have learned a lot on eating healthy raw foods instead of processed foods. I would love to learn more about eating vegan and Lisa touches on the subject of the many sub categories of vegetarian. This book is made for everyday people who are looking to get healthy.
I give this book a 4 out of 5 stars.
