You: On a Diet: The Owner's Manual for Waist Management

Abridged Audiobook

Publisher: Simon & Schuster

Date: October 2006

Duration: 4 hours 35 minutes

Summary:

As they did with the revised edition of YOU: The Owner’s Manual, Dr. Roizen and Dr. Oz have updated their classic, international bestseller on diet. This nearly three million copy seller is filled with new information on emotional eating, the latest fad diets, maintaining a healthy lifestyle, and over a hundred recipes.

For the first time in our history, scientists are uncovering astounding medical evidence about dieting—and why so many of us struggle with our weight and the size of our waists. Now researchers are unraveling biological secrets about such things as why you crave chocolate or gorge at buffets or store so much fat.

Michael Roizen and Mehmet Oz, America’s most trusted doctor team and authors of the bestselling YOU series, are now translating this cutting-edge information to help you shave inches off your waist. They’re going to do it by giving you the best weapon against fat: knowledge. By understanding how your body’s fat-storing and fat-burning systems work, you’re going to learn how to crack the code on true and lifelong waist management.

Roizen and Oz will invigorate you with equal parts information, motivation, and change-your-life action to show you how your brain, stomach, hormones, muscles, heart, genetics, and stress levels all interact biologically to determine if your body is the size of a baseball bat or of a baseball stadium. In YOU: On a Diet, Roizen and Oz will redefine what a healthy figure is, then take you through an under-the-skin tour of the organs that influence your body’s size and its health. You’ll even be convinced that the key number to fixate on is not your weight, but your waist size, which best indicates the medical risks of storing too much fat.

Because the world has almost as many diet plans as it has e-mail spammers, you’d think that just about all of us would know everything there is to know about dieting, about fat, and about the reasons why our bellies have grown so large. YOU: On a Diet is much more than a diet plan or a series of instructions and guidelines or a faddish berries-only eating plan. It’s a complete manual for waist management. It will show you how to achieve and maintain an ideal and healthy body size by providing a lexicon according to which any weight-loss system can be explained. YOU: On a Diet will serve as the operating system that facilitates future evolution in our dieting software. After you learn about the biology of your body and the biology and psychology of fat, you’ll be given the YOU Diet and YOU Workout. Both are easy to learn, follow, and maintain. Following a two-week rebooting program will help you lose up to two inches from your waist right from the start.

With Roizen and Oz’s signature accessibility, wit, and humor, YOU: On a Diet—The Owner’s Manual for Waist Management will revolutionize the way you think about yourself and the food you consume, so that you’ll diet smart, not hard. Welcome to your body on a diet

    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.

  • Ellie Gordillo

    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.
