Losing ITWeight loss books will remain bestsellers for a long time, thanks to the obese people around the world and since they are mostly affluent, buying another thing that might help loose a few kgs or inches is not really an issue. Books do not even cost a fortune unlike most other methods. I personally belong to this group as I can easily do away with at least 10 odd kilos. So when I had the option of getting this book in my hands, I was tempted with a hope for some motivation.

What this small book does is  – Break all possible myths around weight loss. It breaks myths around fad diets, around exercising, around eating something too much or eliminating something altogether, myths around good foods and bad foods, around number of meals, around cooking oils, around eating out and just about anything that you heard from people about loosing weight. Authors have tried to explain the rationale – both scientific and practical behind why each of these mythical beliefs fail to give you the result. The one line answer would be ‘Too much of anything is bad, and moderation is the key”.

Do they give a formula or a step-by-step process to loose weight – No.   Do they tell you any tips to loose weight – not really – but at the end of each chapter they tell you what is healthy and what is not? Good part is that they have kept practical aspects of the modern life in mind and do not tell you anything that you cannot fit in your already busy schedule. Downside is that there is nothing new for you if you have been reading about weight loss. There is a business angle to their not specifying any prescriptions, as the authors run a fitness website and I think they expect the book to divert some traffic there. You can buy their monthly packages where they help you with a diet plan to loose weight. There are success stories both on their website and in the last chapter of the book. A lot in the book thus comes from their practical experience of dealing with people who are trying to loose weight, as they talk about all the myths that they have to deal with for their clients.

As I always say, self help books work at the level of re-iterating what you already know, re-enforcing and sometimes pushing you to do things that you know you should do, but are not motivated enough to do.
