Editorial Reviews


“The goods: Real-world advice, like what to eat at the mall and ‘everything in moderation.’  News you can use: The lists of food substitutions, best sources of protein and superfoods are worth saving. Or, better yet, make a copy to take on your next grocery trip.” (USA Today )

“A petite dynamo who obviously walks the walk. Having struggled with her weight earlier in life, Stoler has clearly licked the bad habits and has the body of a fitness model to prove it.” (Kimberly Garrison - Philadelphia Daily News )

As someone who has also studied nutrition, (although I am NOT an RD), I do not care how many degrees or certifications this woman has, (and she has MANY!), in my view. she cherry picked much of the information in the book and left out what she apparently thought was unimportant. Here is an example from the book:

In her chapter "Designer Labels: Are all Threads (Foods) created equal?" she states, "I once got in a heated discussion with another nutritionist about brown rice being better for you than white rice. I took out 2 boxes and compared them. The difference was that there was one tiny gram of fiber in the brown rice versus no fiber in the white rice. Guess what Rice is not a good source of fiber."

Except polishing white rice from brown destroys 67% of B3, 80% of B1, 90% of B6, half the manganese, half the phosphorus, 60% of the iron, and all of the "tiny bit" of fiber and essential fatty acids, while only synthetic versions of B1, B3, and iron are added back. Something the box isn't going to tell you! To me that is a big enough difference to buy the brown (or black or red) rice, (preferably organic) and leave the nutrient deficient polished white rice on the shelf.

She goes on to tell a father that the [white] color of bread does not matter as much as the fiber content. Leaving aside what we have done to wheat in the last decades and the skyrocketing growth in celiac disease and gluten sensitivities, the vitamins and minerals found in whole grains far outweigh their white counterparts. Take a look sometimes at some of those high fiber white breads on the shelves and read exactly where too much of that added fiber comes from. Ouch!

This book was okay but I didn't find it very informative as I have heard most the info before. Not worth buying the book

This book has nothing to say about why it is that some people get fat on one type of diet whilst others do not. The answer to this question is generally that the "skinny gene" people stop eating well before the "fat gene" ones do. Ideally the way to address this issue is to explain how appetite control works in the body and ensure that "fat gene" people understand which foods to avoid and which foods to emphasize in their diet.

Unfortunately the author condemns diets that encourage the avoidance of certain types of foods and labels them as FADs (fast acting diets) and suggests that nutrients must be derived from every food group - including bread, pasta and rice. It's astonishing that the author recommends such foods despite the fact that they are derived from refined carbohydrates and are largely responsible for destabilizing appetite control in most people and leading to obesity, type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

Sorry Dr Stoler but obesity and it's associated morbidities cannot be addressed by such anachronistic views.
