We’re bombarded with advice on how to shed unwanted pounds: Count calories, cut carbs, exercise more, eat earlier, skip meals, drink more water, sip apple cider vinegar, pop a pill. Yet as more of us try to follow such prescriptions, our waistlines continue to expand.
As Robert J. Davis argues in this meticulously researched book, this failure isn’t our fault. Instead, much of the blame lies with those who peddle hype, half-truths, and unproven solutions, which often steer us into fruitless quests that inflict emotional and physical harm.
In addition to revealing how and why we’re being led astray, Supersized Lies shares weight-control strategies that research shows actually work. And it provides practical information that will help you avoid wasting time, money, and energy. $2.99 on Kindle
