Publishers Text

From the world's number 1 name in weight loss, an inspiring, myth-busting guide to help readers discover what has been holding them back from long-term success. "Weight Watchers" has helped millions of people worldwide lose weight. Now, "Weight Watchers" joins forces with leading cardiologist and health and fitness expert Dr. James Rippe to debunk ten common dieting myths - so that readers can avoid the false turns and agony that stand between them and their goals. Using the latest scientific research and the experiences of successful 'losers', myths like 'you can exercise the weight off' and 'you can impact your metabolism by certain foods and eating patterns' are discussed head on. The kernels of truth that are part of every myth are revealed along with the straight talk about what simply isn't true. In the face of defeatist beliefs such as 'weight loss that lasts isn't possible' and 'I don't have the willpower it takes', the book demonstrates that sustainable weight loss is possible by following the path science offers over myths. This myth-busting guide delivers just what's needed to get off the dieting roller coaster-combining state-of-the-art science, commonsense advice, inspirational stories, and action plans. Now, we can finally focus on keeping it off for the long term. James M. Rippe, M.D. is Associate Professor of Medicine at the Tufts University School of Medicine in Boston. He is the Founder and Director of the Rippe Lifestyle Institute, in Shrewsbury, Mass., one of the largest nutrition, exercise, and lifestyle medicine research organizations in the United States. He has written or edited more than 25 books, ranging from "Heart Disease for Dummies" to the world's leading textbook on intensive care medicine. His work has been featured on the Today show, CNN, and the CBS Evening News as well as in the "New York Times" and the "Wall Street Journal". "Weight Watchers" is America's trusted name in weight loss and the global leader in weight-loss services, with 46,000 weekly meetings in 30 countries. Weight Watchers' mission is to help people reach and maintain a healthy weight. At the heart of "Weight Watchers" are weekly meetings which provide the coaching and tools to help people make the positive changes required to lose weight and keep it off.
