The most successful diet in the US today is what people call "my own diet."
To help you finally get a handle on your weight issues, the books helps you set a target weight and determine the number of calorie you need each day. Losing weight is more than just cutting calories. You need to be able to sort out dieting myths and truths. Did you know that skipping meals does not cut calories? Food you eat at night is not more fattening than food you eat during the day. And, water is a powerful calorie burner. Learn more about these and other myths in the book.
To lose weight you need to get a handle on mindless eating - food decisions about which you give little thought. Did you know you that each of us makes over 112 food decisions every day? Learn how to make these decisions work for you, not against you.
The road to success is always under construction. Dieting is no different and every dieter has encountered speedbumps that derail success. The Calorie Counter, 6th ed. helps you over and around these obstacles. We appreciate that you are painting yourself into the picture of slimmer, fitter you and occasionally you will paint outside the lines. We know that habits are hard, but not impossible, to change and you need strategies to get over the rough patches.
For the guys out there who don't want to admit they need to diet, but appreciate that they need to lose that paunch around the middle, there is a special chapter on dieting for men. When men cut calories they lose weight faster than women. Find out how.
Moving is critical to burn extra calories and build muscles which in turn burns more calories than fat. The book offers an easy way to calculate the calories you use from exercise as well as everyday activities - weeding the garden and washing floors counts.
And, if all this is not enough, the book is sprinkled with YOU SHOULD KNOW highlight boxes offering quirky, entertaining, useful tips and information that will help make weight loss more successful.

And, many many more --
A decisive 2012 research study out of Harvard (noted in the book) showed once again that the composition of the diet (low carb, high carb, high protein, low fat or high fat) is not the key to weight loss and weight maintenance - it is the amount of calories eaten that counts!
