This review is from: Calorie Wars: Fat, Fact and Fiction (Kindle Edition)
Schweitzer and Deutsch show a genuine respect for their reader's time and the importance of their message by compressing this important work into such a short, interesting read. I've pored over a number of health books which start out with a bang, but fizzle with the improbability of implementing their conclusions. If the meaning of life were revealed in one, I'd forget what it was 300 pages later.
Optimal health deals with our most basic decisions about consumption and activity. For any behavior to change, there must be an easy message to remember, believe to be true and can take daily action on through our busy lives. This book hits all the marks. By building a simple case with clear science and omitting the unnecessary, this book's refreshing point is made from the early pages and reinforced throughout. We can stop kidding ourselves, save our money and use the simple message of Calorie Wars as a mantra. It helps us do what we probably already knew we could, yet eases the way with quiet facts that keep the message front and center on a daily, actionable basis while melting away the noise, hype and quackery that lead to so much failure.
Invest $4 in yourself and sell your shares in the supplement and advertising industries. Calorie Wars's actionable message renders their products and messages meaningless. And yes, I've already lost a few pounds since reading it.
