About the Author

Dr John Briffa is a practising doctor and award-winning health writer who has contributed to a wide variety of newspaper and magazines both in the UK and abroad. He was formerly the natural health columnist for the Daily Mail, and has been the Observer's nutritionist since 2002. He is the author of several books on the subject of health, nutrition and natural health including Ultimate Health, Natural Health for Kids, The True You Diet and Waist Disposal and writes a well-trafficked blog at drbriffa.com.

More About the Author

After qualifying as a doctor in London and flirting with a career in surgery, I discovered my true calling was in nutrition and wellness. For more than 20 years my clinical practice has been geared to finding the true underlying causes of illness and symptoms, and giving individuals the tools they need to take control on their own health.

I have a particular interest in weight loss, and don't believe that success here is all about 'eating less and exercising more'. Actually, as I explain in Escape the Diet Trap, taking conventional approaches to weight loss doom most of us to failure.

When I'm writing or lecturing, I always strive to take an evidence-based approach, and refer liberally to published research. I like to bring in my clinical experience too (the approaches that work in the real world with real people). I do like to drop in some common sense for good measure too!

Should you read one of my books, please do share you experiences. You can do this by contacting me at john@drbriffa.com or by leaving a review here at amazon.

My blog contains more than 1,250 articles and podcasts covering all aspects of health and wellness. You can find it at http://www.drbriffa.com

Format: Paperback
UK's premier low-carb physician and health journalist is Dr. John Briffa and he's back with a fabulous new nutritional health book entitled Escape The Diet Trap: Lose Weight For Good Without Calorie-Counting, Extensive Exercise or Hunger. This book continues to spread the message that weight loss isn't just about cutting your calories, eating less food, exercising until you pass out and suffering through glorified bouts of starvation. Instead, by embracing a healthy high-fat, moderate protein, low-carb nutritional lifestyle change, you can be freed from the bondage of the typical "diet" trends that are out there and live a life that is enjoyable and healthy at the same time. Dr. Briffa is the first to tell you that "this is not a diet book" and you'll quickly find out how it could revolutionize how you eat forever! He's quite an articulate and passionate defender of this way of eating that is changing the lives of real people every single day through stunning weight and health changes.

In this book, Dr.

One of the best "diet" books I've read, and I've read a lot! Well written, easy to understand and the advice is simple to follow.
I've lost 25kg in 6 months following the principles outlined in this book, without hunger or feeling deprived at all. I feel like I've finally woken up after years of living in a miserable, low-fat high-carb stupor... read this book and reclaim your life!
