Review

“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

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.

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.

I have lost the same 2-4 pounds endlessly (and any woman I know nodds her head here) I chose this book arbitrarily and told my husband - they're all the same, I just need one which gives me a clear eating/cooking plan and this is the current favorite. Except, except they're not all the same, becuause I am up to 8 pounds lost and it's working far better than all the hundreds of other books/schemes I've tried. I've done south beach and weight watchers and jenny craig and even had fancy food delivered to my door. And this is better. It's harsh - in that it cuts out a huge amount of food - basically all refined sugar and most grains - but it's effective and I eat what it tells me too and like the book promised, the weight is starting to slowly melt off. For the first time in a long time, I feel hopeful.

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.

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.
