Are you seeking for a way to better understand the nutritional value of foods? Do you know the difference between nutritional calories, killer calories, and fat calories? Are you tired of the roller coaster of gaining weight, losing weight, gaining weight...?
If you said yes to any of the above, you'll want to check out Dear God Let Me Lose Fat Amen! by J.R. Paine and Dr. S.N. Gupta. In this book the authors have managed to squeeze a monsterous amount of information into only 50 pages and those 50 pages could make all the difference in your eating habits.
Paine and Gupta discuss how obesity and being overweight are not beauty issues, but "life and limb" issues. They provide anatomical information on the stomach and show the reader what her body does with the food she eats. You'll find out more about protein, complex carbohydrates, fiber, "friendly" and "unfriendly" fats, water, salt, and sugar.
This book teaches you how to gain or lose a pound of fat a day, provides helpful weight control formulas and dieting information. The last several pages include motivational material that can be used to keep you from overeating and encourage you to exercise.
When this book came in the mail it's small size made me think this might be one of those quick weight loss programs, but Dear God Let Me Lose Fat Amen! is a truly remarkable approach to weight loss because it not only provides you the information you need to make smart choices about your diet, it also provides the motivation to stick with your new lifestyle and it encourages the reader to speak with her doctor and nutrition professionals. And while I don't see me posting all the pinups around my house, I know that the "Foods to Eat and Love" chart--which groups healthy goods into five categories--will be stuck to my refrigerator and encourage me to make healthier selections when putting together my grocery list.
My only disappointment is that the editing is sloppy. I found numerous typographical errors--four of them on the first page of the book.
Speaking as someone who struggles to maintain her weight, not to lose it, I see Dear God Let Me Lose Fat Amen! as being the answer to a lot of people's prayers as society moves toward healthy living.
If you are at all interested in what you put into your body and how your body uses it, then buy this book!
