This is a presentation for my coursework of Advanced Nutrition Course that have been presented in 2009/2010 when I was in university. We have to review any fad diet book and I chose The French Don't Diet Book. As you may know, certain fad diets offer false claims.
But from my reading, I can say that this book may help those who wants to lose weight, without dieting.

Now, after a few months, I would like to share this to everyone. So I re-edited AND uploaded them here. You may notice that certain slides are designed very conservatively. This is because it is presented in an educational and academical environment. Thus, it is unavoidable
