The End of Dieting

I am not good at dieting and a book that promotes the end of dieting is right up my alley. I spent most of my life being skinny and then at what I considered a normal weight and my focus has always been on getting good exercise so I can eat whatever I want. Joel Fuhrman’s book, The End of Dieting might just change my perspective on that.

I am still in the middle of reading, or really studying, it but there are some things about this book that strike a chord with me. In it, he discusses some of the popular diets and why they fail with so many people. And the reason why when people lose weight and they regain it, the new weight is harder to lose than before and why the new weight is more dangerous than the old weight.
And of course, he recommends that instead of cycling through some of those diets, that people focus on eating a diet rich with whole foods and giving your body a chance to heal itself. Becoming a nutritarian!
I’ll write a full article when I’ve finished reading.
Now I’m headed to the hospital to sit with my cousin and his family while their two year daughter undergoes heart surgery. There just aren’t words for these kinds of situations so I’ll just sit with them and pray.
Hope you have a wonderful day.

      I was glad to be there too. I remember when you were making the rounds with me when I was first diagnosed with the heart murmur and I think how much you probably wished there was someone there to sit with you.
      I am making lots of notes on the book so I’ll have good info to share soon.

  2. I hope your cousin’s little girl is doing well, what a difficult situation, I cannot imagine how hard it must be for her parents, and how scary for her.
    I’d love to read your review of the book, sounds very interesting. I’m all up for the end of dieting and especially the end of the diet culture.
