I saw this book on a post and thought I would read it. I was hoping that there would be an answer to all my losing weight concerns; a magic potion; a panacea. No! It gives a great history of government initiatives and what worked and what didn't.
What I have realised is there is nothing magic and it is all common sense. It doesn't mean it is easy, but nothing worth having is.
It reinforces the limit sugar and processed foods as they do not set off the I am satisfied alarm that our bodies do have if we eat the right food. Another blinding glimpse of the obvious- eat only when hungry. This doesn't always fit in with breaks at work, but I do this without thinking at the weekend. You don't have to eat breakfast. Wow, really? No, if you are hungry eat ir - but not sugary cereal. If not, wait until you are hungry.
It doesn't hurt to have a long gap between food - your body can cope. In fact it will probably do you good and missing the odd meal will not do you any harm or make your body go into starvation mode.
A good read and a refreshing thought- listen to what your body wants; not your eyes ( ok sometimes, but not all the time)
