Darya Pino Rose, a neuroscientist and the creator of the popular blog SummerTomato.com, offers a first-of-its-kind “Healthstyle” book showing readers how to ditch the diets in order to achieve lasting weight loss, simply through the love of food.
In Foodist: Using Real Food and Real Science to Lose Weight Without Dieting, she introduces a revolutionary new idea: the best way for sustainable weight loss is to eat real food. Cutting through the typical diet jargon—what to eat, how much to eat, and when to eat it—Foodist offers a proven solution to lasting weight control. Taking readers through the nutrition and psychology involved in not just eating, but eating well, Rose teaches us how to incorporate fresh, seasonal, and delicious ingredients into every meal—and reveals how to move beyond the daily obstacles and bad habits to keep the tasteless, empty, and unsatisfying food-like products off your plate.
According to Rose, losing weight should not be about sacrifice, deprivation, and willpower. We need to look at mealtime as a celebration rather than a battle. Offering a different way of looking at food—and helping readers make decisions with a clear understanding of how to optimize health and happiness—she shows us that enjoying good food is the key to sustainable weight loss.
Including tips, checklists, and recipes, she offers:
- 10 simple ways to eat less without noticing
- A guide to willpower—and the best times to use it
- How to shop for healthy food on a budget
- The 10 most overrated “health” foods
- Essential tools, groceries, and pantry items to get you started in the kitchen
Smart, accessible, and engaging, Foodist will help you tailor your eating habits to match your lifestyle and food preferences, making sure the path you choose works for you in the short and long-term. Not only will you permanently build healthier habits into your daily life, you’ll lose weight and enjoy food like never before.
