Publisher's Summary

Foodist is a manifesto about real food and real science that proves once and for all that sustainable weight loss is possible by incorporating fresh, seasonal - and delicious - ingredients into every meal.
If you downloaded this book, there's a good chance this is not the first time you hoped a new eating plan would help you lose weight. Dieting is a popular hobby in the 21st century, and the result is typically a slow but steady weight gain over the years. Oops. Diets fail because they rely on willpower and restriction for achieving health goals, and ignore the reasons these tactics always backfire. Becoming a foodist helps you give up dieting forever and get on the real path to healthy, lasting weight control.
Foodist is an approach that actually celebrates food while taking you through the nutrition and psychology involved in eating well to help you move beyond the daily obstacles and bad habits that keep the tasteless, empty, and unsatisfying food-like products on your plate. Losing weight no longer has to be about sacrifice, deprivation, and willpower, and food will turn from something you fight into something you can actually love again. As Darya writes, "You don't need a diet. You need an upgrade."
Smart, accessible, and engaging, Foodist will help you tailor your eating habits to match your lifestyle and your food preferences, making sure the path you choose works for you in the short- and long-term. Not only will you permanently build healthier habits into your daily life, you'll lose weight and enjoy food like never before.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Being a foodist= being a food snob!

What would have made Foodist better?

A more balanced perspective on the 'science' that is repeatedly discussed in the book. The author cherry picks research studies in order to support her view point, without acknolwedging alternative/challenges to these ideas. Presumably the reader is expected to take her opinion as fact on the basis of her PhD (which interestingly is in neuroscience not nutritional science!)

The title of her book is also misleading, she states that with her approach you can lose weight 'without dieting' but you do need to restrict both the types and amounts of foods consumed. I am not disputing that this is necessary in order to lose weight, but it certainly qualitfies as dieting!

Uterly enjoyable

Even though it focuses more on the US market I can relate to it as the same patterns occur in the UK, especially in London a foodist Mecca where organic produce is at a great cost. This book changes your mindset and I believe it could also change the shape of your body. It was a very enjoyable listening experience and would recommend it to anyone looking for a change in lifestyle and not a diet.
