Dieting is a popular hobby in the 21st century and the diet industry has been more than happy to offer us thousands of weight loss solutions every year. As predicable failures add up year after year, it is time to rethink our approach to dieting and more importantly to food. "Foodist" is a manifesto about real food and real science designed for you to create a personalized path to lasting weight loss. But unlike typical diets that give you restrictive lists of what you can and can't eat, this book focuses on your most frequent food choices and helps you restructure them for optimal health and enjoyment. You'll get specific instructions on how to set up your home, office and living environment to maximize the number of healthy choices you make each day, freeing you to be selective for those indulgences that are the most worthwhile. "Foodist" will also teach you how and when to shop for groceries, basic food prep and cooking skills, and how to pick the right restaurants and make smart menu choices. Better food choices do not need to be complicated and can be integrated into even the busiest of schedules.
A foodist simply has a different way of looking at food, and makes decisions with a clear understanding of how to optimize health and happiness. This is not a new diet, and you will never need to look for one again.
"In Foodist, Darya Pino gives the most sensible advice I've read about attaining and maintaining healthy weight without dieting. Her science-based approach tells you how to enjoy real food, make the best food choices, and not deny yourself the pleasures of eating. I recommend this book."--Andrew Weil, M.D.
