Dr. Snyder wanted to help people feel that same level of fullness in a non-surgical way.

Why Diets Don't Work (2005)

Rating 4/5

Abstract: The subtitle of this book, "A Life Without Dieting," makes better sense after the book has been read. The book does strongly advocate weight control involving control of the kinds and quantities of food eaten. However the book is not a diet book, but rather a presentation of the author's system for weight control that focuses on what is termed "mindful eating" and may include bariatric surgery in exceptional cases. Mindful eating is both a thoughtful approach to eating that requires deliberate effort in what foods are eaten and how they are eaten, and a way of life that includes planning meals, exercise and an understanding of how to measure progress and set realistic goals. The central goal of the book is living a full life.

Review. I must admit that I have not read many diet or weight loss books. In fact weight loss has not been much of an issue for me. However, I am affected (as the author points out) but the weight related issues of those around me.

Format: Hardcover
Dr. Michael Snyder has conducted thousands of bariatric surgical procedures and coached many more patients in their struggle against obesity. In "Full: A Life Without Dieting," he shares hard won strategies applicable to all in addressing unwanted weight and leading healthier lives. In accessible laymen's terms, he provides the science undergirding his recommendations as to why these strategies work.

If you are looking for a silver bullet or quick pill for easily shedding weight, you won't find a "get-thin-quick" scheme - easily adopted and easily ignored -- here. Dr. Snyder generally derides the popular `diets' out there. Relying on various studies, he points out that most people will follow one, only to re-gain the weight. Instead, citing the science behind what makes us feel `full' and limit our eating, he outlines effective strategies which he hopes will become sustainable lifelong tools for living. Once these sensible and easily adopted tools become ingrained, they are less likely to be set aside along like whatever diet has fallen out of fashion. Those who follow Weight Watchers will find some things that are familiar to them - planning ahead, drinking water, "filling" foods, portion control, starting with moderate activity and even the ability to "cheat" occasionally. However, Snyder's strategies don't require the constant adding up of points which bedevil many.

Card-carrying members of the Clean Plate Club may have learned since childhood to ignore the body's signals of fullness, relying instead on the gleam of porcelain to indicate the end of a meal. I found Dr. Synder's chapters on the physiology of fullness to be especially helpful and plan to re-read those again in the future. No matter our present weight, most of us have a difficult relationship with food and weight. Dr. Snyder's prose is sympathetic, informative and never patronizing. I can imagine that some people might even find it transformative.

I do not write reviews but I feel that this book is worth sharing! This is the only intelligent book on the subject that I have ever read; a must have. The author understands the keys to weight loss and presents them in a very realistic, doable way. This book hit home for me, (I have been on and off of diets for years, always trying to loose ten pounds). Snyder makes you realize just how retarded and ineffective diets are for virtually everyone. I think the fact that he does lap band surgery gives him a special insight on the subject; he is careful to point out surgery is not a miracle pill but rather a tool to put people on an even playing field with others. This is a REALLY good, intelligent, motivating book.

I'm still working on this book, but it's good. A lot of information to absorb. I appreciate the author trying to help people before they go in for surgery, to try and change their life and habits before getting so extreme as to have the surgery.

Excellent book, I've been studying weight loss for several years.
I found the Science that is behind some of the things I have previously learned fasinating. Also I learned some new strategies to teach my cleints and use myself.
