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.
LISA TILLINGER JOHANSEN is a Registered Dietitian who counsels clients on a wide range of health issues. Her debut nutrition book, Fast Food Vindication,received the Discovery Award (sponsored by USA Today, Kirkus and The Huffington Post). She lives in Southern California.

This is the kind of book that everyone can understand and follow. It shows the reader that losing weight is all common sense and not fad diets. We must eat to give our bodies the nutrition it needs, but we also must stay as healthy as we can while we are dieting. As other diets are looked at we find out what is actually good and or bad about them. This is a great book for anyone who really wants to be healthy and lose weight. I give this book a 4/5. I was given this book for the purpose of a review and all opinions are mine.
