Book Description

December 26, 2006
No more counting carbs, calories, or fat grams! This revolutionary diet plan works with your hormones to curb your appetite, boost your metabolism, and take the pounds off for good!

Cutting-edge research shows that losing weight is not about carbs, calories, or even willpower—it’s about a hormone called leptin, and how it functions in your body. Leptin is your body’s natural weight-loss mechanism: it curbs your appetite, jump-starts your metabolism, and when working properly makes you literally fat resistant—you will lose weight effortlessly and efficiently and never gain those pounds back.

If you’re struggling to lose weight, chances are you are “leptin resistant”—your body no longer responds to leptin, making it impossible for you to slim down. The Fat Resistance Diet is the first and only eating plan designed specifically to combat leptin resistance and reprogram your body to start melting away the pounds. Using a breakthrough combination of anti-inflammatory and hormone-balancing foods, the three-phase regimen delivers:

A loss of six to ten pounds in the first two weeks.
A loss of at least two pounds a week thereafter.
Fun, flavorful meals that make sticking with the plan a breeze.
An easy maintenance program that keeps you fat resistant for life.

With over 100 delicious recipes designed for maximum satisfaction and eating pleasure, the Fat Resistance Diet is the only diet you’ll ever need—a brand new way to eat that will transform your body into a lean, fat-fighting machine.

Editorial Reviews


“The new new thing in dieting.” —The Wall Street Journal

The Fat Resistance Diet teaches us how to alter our biological hardwiring to lose weight and keep it off. Dr. Galland spotlights Leptin Resistance–a condition that drives millions to gain weight, despite futile dieting efforts.”
--Mehmet Oz, M.D., #1 New York Times bestselling author of You: The Owner's Manual

“In a world of fad diets, Dr. Leo Galland’s Fat Resistance Diet brings leading-edge science to bear on the problem of obesity. This program revolutionizes our understanding of weight loss and health enhancement.”
—David Perlmutter, M.D., F.A.C.N., author of The Better Brain Book

“Dr. Galland cuts through the diet myths to reveal the critical relationship between hunger, inflammation, and body weight, and provides delicious ways to reduce all three.”
--Lawrence J. Cheskin, M.D., Director of the Johns Hopkins Weight Management Center

“A welcome change from the most recent diet fashions, Galland’s book deserves a wide readership.”
--Library Journal

5.0 out of 5 stars Not the latest fad diet - this stuff really works! February 17, 2006
I have been overweight my entire adult life (I just turned 50); I suppose I'm Dr. Galland's poster child for "the weight goes on and never comes off, no matter what you do." I have steadfastly refused to "go on a diet" - I don't want some temporary program that I do for a while and quit, I need a way to change my lifestyle, and this book is showing me the way to do exactly that. I lost 30 lbs. in the first month alone (and 45 in two months); I'm looking for a total loss of over 100 lbs., and for the first time in my life, I actually have hope that it will happen.

Without getting too deep into technical detail, the diet amounts to a kind of biochemical healing from the effects of years of bad eating habits. I have more energy, my general mood is better, even my fingernails are healthier. My doctor is getting ready to take me off blood-pressure and cholesterol medications.

The beauty of it is that I'm not walking around hungry all the time. In fact, I had to ask my wife to make some of the salads a little smaller because they left me feeling stuffed. The recipes are, for the most part, delicious, and we're already finding some creative ways to adapt the principles in ways we prefer.

The three-stage approach is helpful - a brief, fairly radical Stage 1 to "flush out the system" and retrain the taste buds, as well as get some quick early results to boost morale. Stage 2 is geared to more moderate, sustainable weight loss (adding in more grains and more variety than Stage 1), and Stage 3 is for long-term lifestyle maintenance. We were so encouraged that we did Stage 1 twice through before moving into Stage 2.

5.0 out of 5 stars The recipes are satisfying and the diet works December 27, 2005
By Joanne
This diet makes so much sense and the recipes are great. I decided to start it right away. The recipes are delicious, I didn't feel hungry and I actually lost 5 pounds in the first few days. The food is the best part of this diet. It's so easy to prepare and has such great flavor, I don't feel deprived. It's like following a cook book of great meals from different parts of the world, not like dieting. Like Rachel Ray but designed by a doctor. My favorites so far: chicken parmigiano, green-tea crusted salmon, black forest banana split, tuscan frittata. I'm actually looking forward to seeing what I get to eat next.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, well-balanced and covers all the bases. January 14, 2006
I have been looking for a popular diet book to recommend to my clients and friends. The Fat Resistance Diet contains the best weight loss program that I have yet seen. I carefully analyzed the meal plans and recipes in each stage. It is high in omega-3 fats, vitamins, calcium and other minerals, and fiber. It makes certain that you get 9 servings of fruits and vegetables each day. The fruits and vegetables emphasized are those with proven benefits in preventing chronic disease. There is enough protein to help control your appetite and prevent the loss of muscle that occurs with dieting. There is enough carbohydrate to help maintain energy. There are no artificial sweeteners or additives. The herbs and spices used to flavor foods all have demonstrated preventive health benefits. The recipes are simple enough that food preparation is easy and the cost is moderate. The meals I have prepared from this diet have been really tasty and satisfying.

An added benefit of this book is the sensible approach that the author takes to exercise and stress management. Most diet books don't even discuss these areas, although they are very important for weight control. Galland emphasizes walking and other forms of aerobic exercise and stretching and toning to prevent injuries.

This is an exceptionally well-balanced weight loss program.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very disapointed September 6, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I thought this book was about Leptin resistance. Unfortunately it was more of an anti-inflammatory diet. Very little in the way of discussing how to reverse Leptin resistance. I was surprised that this diet relied heavily in fruit and fruit syrups and juices because it is the fructose that is at the heart of the Leptin resistance problem. He vilifies red meat and endorses grains, especially whole whet , which is highly inflammatory. while there is no doubt that this diet is much better than the typical American diet it falls very short for me. I threw the book out.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Diet Works! February 21, 2006
I have been very pleased with my purchase of The Fat Resistance Diet!

Prior to starting this diet, I was diagnosed with Type II Diabetes & taking 500mg of Glucophage 3 x daily. After just 2 weeks on the Fat Resistance Diet, I lost 13 pounds and my blood sugar had dropped to a normal level ~ and after 7 weeks on the diet have discontinued my medication all together (as well as losing 21 pounds). My suger remains within a normal level daily now.

I found the diet easy to follow, once I made the initial adjustment to cutting down my daily intake of sugars & carbohydrates considerably.

I found the book very informative, without being boring. The menus are easy & practical.
I have to say that this book has been a blessing for me as a tool for getting my blood sugar under control.
