Reviews

"This 10-day reset plan is designed to work with any diet plan to make it more effective. While debunking a lot of weight loss myths, it also provides sound advice for those personalizing their own lifestyle plan." --Today show

"[Yoni Freedhoff] has invented an un-diet...a set of simple food and excericse guidelines that can help you safely lose a pound a week and keep it off--summer fun included." --Glamour magazine

"if any diet book "works," it's going to be this one." --Scientific American

"As should be obvious to anyone who's been paying attention, these and many other approaches to weight-loss can work. The real challenge is keeping weight off, and Freedhoff's advice focuses on how to win that battle by formulating a plan you can happily live with for the rest of your life, not just for a few weeks or months." --Runner's World

Praise for The Diet Fix
"The Diet Fix delivers. This is a wonderful approach to tackling the Diet Demons. It allows people to keep what they like most about food -- the taste and indulgences -- and to get rid of what they don't like about food -- overeating and guilt. It's about balance. Regaining balance in our diet as well as in our lives." --Brian Wansink (Ph.D.), Author of Mindless Eating and Slim by Design

"Here finally is a book capturing the nuts and bolts of the dieting culture that has gripped North America. With Dr. Freedhoff's presentation of fact supported by years of first-hand experience, a crystal clear picture of what works, what doesn't and what is myth emerges. The Diet Fix is a service to all." --Tosca Reno, author of the New York Times bestselling The Eat Clean Diet

"The Diet Fix is a breath of fresh air, revealing exactly why diets are such exhausting, ineffective traps and providing a do-able roadmap for a new, healthier way of approaching food and weight. It is an eye-opening and helpful diet antidote." --Ellie Krieger RDN, nutritionist, cookbook author, and TV personality

"Few people know as much about weight loss as Dr. Yoni Freedhoff. It is no surprise that he has produced a book that is the perfect combination of evidence-based facts and good, solid, usable advice. There is so much misinformation in the media about dieting, and so many trendy and near useless diets. Yoni's book is exactly what we need: a science-informed--and fun to read--road map to long-term weight loss success." --Timothy Caulfield, author of The Cure for Everything: Untangling the Twisted Messages about Health, Fitness and Happiness

"Finally a diet plan that can work because it won't make you miserable! Like all honest approaches to a better life, The Diet Fix is rooted in a deep understanding of how people are wired, and inspired by optimism about their true potential. You'll never need to read another diet book." -Melanie Warner, author of Pandora's Lunchbox

"This isn't a detox diet, it's a diet detox--a 10-day "reprogramming" that will free you forever from the damaging and defeating cycle of failed diets. Those suffering from Post Traumatic Dieting Stress (which is to say, most of us) may find it hard to believe that an approach this gentle, doable, and sane could ever work. Trust me: The Diet Fix offers an end to the madness and the keys to lasting weight control." -Monica Reinagel, MS, LD/N, author of Nutrition Diva's Secrets for a Healthy Diet

Millions of people are suffering through restriction, denial, sacrifice, hunger and a frustrating yo-yo cycle of weight loss and regain, yet they still struggle to manage their weight. This serial dieting breeds guilt, shame, depression, despair and binge eating. If you're one of these "traumatic dieters," The Diet Fix, will not only provide a much needed sigh of relief, it will be a Godsend. It might even save your life. --Tom Venuto, author of Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle

"The Diet Fix is a no-nonsense approach to realistic weight management by a recognized expert in the field. This step-by-step guide to long-term weight management provides the evidence, debunks common myths and is chock full of practical tips - the ultimate diet book for anyone wanting to stop dieting and start living." -- Arya M. Sharma, MD/PhD, Scientific Director of the Canadian Obesity Network and Disc. (h.c.), FRCPC Professor of Medicine


"Freedhoff dispels pervading myths about dieting, warns against the "seven deadly sins" (hunger, sacrifice, willpower, blind restriction, sweat, perfectionism, and denial), and instructs readers to replace tenuous willpower with "skillpower" as they learn the key triad to healthy weight loss: organization, planning, and thoughtfulness...this book will help dieters win by losing." --Publisher's Weekly
