You'll finish the book, but will you lose weight?
(From John Freeman, PhD)
As a doctor myself, I can say that there is some great information in these pages- a lot about fat and the detriment that it's causing in our culture. Some doctors like to suggest cures to symptoms instead of cures for the problem and it appears that these gentleman may be doing just that. The gimmicky (and funny) "waist management" technique is interesting and fairly unique from what I've seen, but it can be seen as just a diversion. Maybe people who are obese need a diversion and need to stop thinking about food, but it's my experience that people need to focus on how they were designed (we were designed to constantly eat) and then cater to that by eating the right types of foods at certain times. Roizen and Mehmet's humorous approach reminds me of one of my favorite diet/nutrition books, "The Evolution Diet," which makes learning about the body entertaining as well as informative. Perhaps the author(s) of the You On a Diet could have focused more on the appropriation of one's diet as Evolution does, but it appears that people can really be helped with these techniques and that's the main goal- a fitter world.

Motivational, informative...authors used many metaphors and similies in their descriptive characterization of medical concepts...they communicated in practical terms making the text enjoyable.
