Michael Roizen and Mehmet Oz, America's most trusted doctor team, are turning their attention back to dieting in this revised edition of their bestselling title on weight loss.

In the world of diet advice, everyone has spent way too much time on pounds, inches, carbohydrates, protein, sugar, zones, and everything else, when in fact the answer has been in front of us the whole time. When it comes to healthy weight control, management, and bodily happiness, there's only one place listeners should be looking: their own bodies. YOU: On a Diet Revised Edition--through the use of vivid anatomy, visual and verbal humor, strong action plans, and a customized approach to dieting--makes sense of weight loss and weight control. Filled with discussions of the latest diet fads, new tips and updated tricks, this revised edition of YOU: On a Diet gives listeners all the tools they need to get fit and healthy--and stay that way.

This audiobook is for people who have--or feel they have--a problem with being overweight, and who want to change their health. The American Obesity Association reports that 127 million Americans are overweight--that's 65 percent of people over the age of 20. Roizen and Oz target female and male adults of all weight ranges-overweight, obese, and morbidly obese--by addressing a range of body-weight issues, from nutrition and exercise to liposuction and gastric bypass surgery. They appeal to the millions of people who have had experience (yet little success) with one or many previous diets.

Roizen and Oz give listeners the perfect dose of health information and go-for-it motivation to help them understand things like how the body processes food, why being fat isn't bad all the time, how hormones may play a bigger role than many of us realize, and whether or not the extreme options are worth it. In YOU: On a Diet, Roizen and Oz have redefined what a healthy figure is. Once listeners understand where they fall on that scale of healthy living, the YOU docs will give listeners the tool kit to know what to do and how to do it--as well as arm them with the inspiration they crave so that they can live it.

    The title should not include the word "diet" - rather this is a wake up call to STOP dumping poison down your throat. I nicknamed the book "The Filthy Five" referring to Saturated Fat, Trans Fat, Enriched ANYTHING, HFCS, and SUGAR. The audio kept referring to PDF which didn't come with it and I can't find a PDF. I've lost 17 pounds so far. Now I read labels and cringe when I see people regularly living on unhealthy foods and beverages. :)

    Enough with the analogies! Annoying yet useful. Get the same information from reading Self Magazine or Prevention without the annoying constant analogies.

    This was packed with interesting information. They make it easy to understand how your body works. The book has good illustrations of it. After hearing this, you won't want to eat any "bad" food.

    They alternate reading the book. One of the readers does not pronounce his words clearly. I found his voice very irritating. I was not impressed with the content and, quite frankly, did not believe all they had to say. Their other book (You the Owners Manual) was much better.

    I enjoyed listening and got a lot of useful information, but I suggest buying the book for the complete diet and exercise illustrations.
