We need to stop thinking with our diet head and let go of damaging thoughts and actions that keep us stuck in old patterns. Following that thought, here’s an interesting book called “The End of Dieting” by Joel Fuhrman. This book will help you understand the key principles of the science of health, nutrition and weight loss. It will give you a simple and effective strategy to achieve and maintain an optimal weight, without dieting, for the rest of your life.

This book reviews the dangers of popular diets, the damage that inevitably occurs from trying to reduce calories, and nutrition strategies that are easy for everyone to implement, regardless of your time restraints, food preferences or past dietary failures.
