I recognize that fat loss isn't just about calories, and in my case, the majority of clients who come to me do have an underlying, but unrecognized medical condition.
Dr. Langer talks about the hidden reasons why you're not losing body fat.
What I liked about the book:
- Written in laymen's terms, so it makes it an easy read
- Excellent discussion of physiology of the different reasons for fat loss resistance, without getting too geeky.
What I didn't like about the book:
- I'm a fitness professional, so this is my domain, but his advice on exercise is very outdated (not to mention, inaccurate). He advocates aerobic exercise (cardio) as opposed to strength training. I agree that both are important, but I would prioritize strength training for a lot of reasons (some of which, I've published on my blog).
- At the end of the book, he gives a 1000-calorie a day diet. For one thing, it's unsustainable, which if acknowledged, is fine, as long as there is guidance on what to do after you're done with that diet. But there isn't.
- Along with the 1000-calorie diet, there is a list of 12 different supplements that must be taken.
Overall, I very much enjoyed reading about the physiology of fat loss resistance, I just think it fell a little short in the nutrition, supplementation and exercise recommendations.
