So You Can Use Real Food to Lose Weight Without Dieting? – I Knew It!

I’ll probably never write a book on healthy eating (I know,
you’re shocked), but if I did, I’d like to think it would be similar to
“Foodist,” the new book by my friend, and favorite neuroscientist, Darya Pino
Rose. I’ve never been able to articulate it as well as Ms. Summer Tomato, but
have always believed that delicious food is the solution, not the problem; and
that relying solely on willpower to change behavior never works, for anything.


Genetically predisposed appearances to the contrary, I live a relatively
healthy lifestyle (or “healthstyle” as it’s referred to in the book). I’m quite
active, eat lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, and generally stay away from
processed foods. At this advanced age, I know what makes my body and mind feel
good, and I try to eat as many of those foods as possible.

Of course, I’ve based most of my personal eating theories on
intuition and anecdotal evidence, so it was nice having someone who actually
understands all this stuff explain the science behind it. Besides learning why
all those diets you tried didn’t work (spoiler alert: it wasn’t your fault),
the smartly organized book is chock full of great tips and techniques, presented
in an entertaining, often irreverent style.

I really did enjoy the book, and despite my complete lack of
objectivity, I would enthusiastically recommend it to others. For more
information, you can follow this link to Amazon, where the book is getting rave
reviews (by people who actually paid for it).  Enjoy!
