Eat more, weigh less 23

  1. 1. by Terry Shintani, MD, JD, MPH, KSJ

  3. 3. Recent studies have shown that most diets really don't work and can even be harmful. This book turns the traditional concept of dieting upside down and replaces these old ideas with a healthy plan for weight loss designed around the latest information - a plan that can be sustained for the rest of your life.
  4. 4.
  5. 5. At any given time in these United States, some 43 million people are on a diet to lose weight. Diet pills and liquid diets have been with us for decades now, with mixed and often alarming results. A large, well designed study done in 1990 called the "National Health Interview Survey" estimated that in the U.S., a staggering 28,688,881 or 40.1% of women were trying to lose weight and 15,009,011 or 23.3% of the men were trying to lose weight.
  6. 6. One major reason is that almost all "diets" work, yet ultimately they fail. They produce gratifying weight loss but in the end, people gain it back. This holds for just about all diets, including the liquid diets such as the powdered formula diets, the liquid protein diets, low calorie diets, modified fasts, and drugs.
  7. 7. The most common type of diet is a simple calorie restriction diet. To be sure, this type of diet works. However, one of the most common reasons these diets fail is that they fight your hunger by limiting calories or by "portion control," or focusing on a strictly limited amount of a single formula (e.g. powdered shake) or food (e.g. grapefruit diet) without taking into account your hunger or your body's metabolism.
  8. 8. If the calorie count is too low, your body fights back by changing its metabolic setpoint, that gauge which determines your metabolic activity and therefore the rate at which you burn calories. In other words the hungrier you are, the more your body resists losing weight. In addition, many diets have you count calories without considering that most people will find it impractical to count calories for the rest of their lives.
  9. 9. There are two problems with this type of diet: first is the "yo-yo" effect that we've already mentioned; second, without eating a variety of real food, no one can stay on these diets and remain healthy for any significant period of time. One of the best known types of diets is the low-carbohydrate diet or the "military diet." Some examples of the "military diet" include the Atkins diet and a variety of the Stillman diet. Furthermore, most of the foods on these diets are high in fat and cholesterol and therefore increase your risks of cardiovascular disease and cancer. There is no "quick fix" in dieting.
  10. 10. The media, with all its tantalizing advertisements for food, is another part of the problem. TV food ads sensualize food, deify it, romanticize it--and generally reinforce our fixations. Something is seriously wrong with our relationships with the foods we eat when the foods we choose are what's killing us!
  11. 11.
  12. 12. In this book, you'll learn which foods help you lose weight--fit foods--and which help you gain weight--fat foods. You can identify these foods with the help of a simple tool that I developed, the "Eat More Index' (EMI). The simple purpose of this book is to show you how the summarized principles of all our human experience can help you lose weight--your excess weight--automatically.
  13. 13. The main concept behind any conventional weight-loss program is: Input minus output = weight loss (or gain). That is, the number of calories you eat minus the number of calories you burn each day determines how much weight you gain or lose. Said another way, in order to lose weight, you have to eat fewer calories than you burn, or burn more calories than you eat. (Calories, by the way, are simply units of energy).
  14. 14. This `input-output' concept is why most reputable weight loss programs ask you to count calories and limit portion size. Recent research is changing our understanding about calories and finding that calories are not always equal. . The Eat More Diet takes these concepts and makes it practical for you to incorporate them into your daily life.
  15. 15.
  16. 16. You will learn how to melt your fat away by consuming food that satisfies your hunger while at the same time automatically decreasing the intake of calories-- without counting them! You'll learn how to increase the output of calories WITH OR WITHOUT EXERCISE, while you are at the same time satisfying your hunger rather than depriving yourself of food.
  17. 17.  Very soon you're going to learn how to EAT MORE AND WEIGH LESS, and at this very moment you're on your way to new health, new vitality, and a slimmer, trimmer you!
