This book will keep me slim and healthy forever.

The Smarter Science Of Slim is an easy book to read and understand.  The basic idea is that eating more and exercising less will help people lose weight.  I will pass this piece of information to all the people I know who are currently dieting. I learned that I can burn off body fat by simply drinking more water and green tea.  I will try to drink more of these things from now on.  I will try to eat foods that are high in protein, fiber and water.

 It is possible to burn body fat by simply eating high quality foods. Eating more high quality food will help me to lower my set point and maintain a healthy weight.  A high quality food is one that is natural and not processed.  Eating low quality aggressive  food turns into calories that raises my level of body fat.   Bailor explains this line of logic well.     The difficult thing for me is to eat less starchy vegetables like potatoes and corn.   I like these two very much.  I will try to eat more  vegetables that are not starchy like carrots, lettuce and spinach.  This book raises my awareness to the quality of the calories I put in my body. I learned that bananas and broccoli are good sources of carbohydrates.  I enjoy eating these two foods, so this is good news to me.  

 The section on exercise is fairly short compared to the section about nutrition, but it is still helpful for me.  I learned that high quality brief exercise is more important than a long duration session of exercise. I strive to walk briskly for at least sixty minutes a day, but Bailor advises exercises that require me to use all of the muscle fibers in my body.  The exercises in this book are simple.  I like doing push ups and pull ups.  I haven't done these things in a while, but they are excellent exercises that work out my different muscles. I don't know how to swim, but this is an excellent exercise to do once I learn how.  This book raises my consciousness about my personal diet, health and fitness.

An amazing nutrition and fitness book that's complete and thorough. It has made a difference for me.
At the beginning of every new year, people make that perennial New Year's resolution that they are going to stick to a diet come what may, so they eat less and exercise more, and they see very minimal results for their best intentioned efforts. People go into diets and fitness regimens all gun-ho and idealistic, only to be left jaded and discouraged. More-often-than-not, people actually pick up extra pounds and do more harm to their bodies than before they started a fitness and nutrition routine. …

The Skinny on the Skinny
"If Oprah hires someone to design her house and the house collapses, we would not blame Oprah. And if Oprah hires someone to design a piece of software and she cannot figure it out, the software designer is at fault. So, if Oprah hires someone to design a weight-loss program and she does not lose weight, the program failed--Oprah did not.... ...Results are all that matter. People do not fail fat-loss programs. Fat-loss programs fail people." --Jonathan Bailor, `The Smarter Science of Slim' For overweight …

This book debunks the myths, lies, and hype about diets put out by many writers who offer miraculous, cure-all diets and the often contradictory messages by the food industry interested in their bottom line. It is based on numerous scientific studies, more than 10,000 pages of academic research, and has the endorsement of dozens of physicians. And it makes sense. Bailor writes in an easy to read manner and fills his book with very informative, to the point, and clear charts. He tells what experts …

I have a problem with chorizo. A problem in the junkie, I-get-it-on-all-my-burritos-because-I-can’t-get-enough sense. And food in general; like most Chicagoans, I love me some deep dish pizza, and I’m pretty enamored with our beef-and-sausage combo sandwiches—the perfect meal for the indecisive food addict. So I tend to eat more or less what I want, trying not to feel bad about this annoying bit of belly fat that sticks around inside my body like a developmentally challenged baby …

About this book

Wiki

From Dr. Theodoros Kelesidis, Harvard Medical School & Department of Medicine, UCLA School of Medicine
I am often asked when there will be a proven prescription for weight loss. The Smarter Science of Slim is that prescription.

Jonathan Bailor's easy-to-understand and engaging style disguises an astonishing amount of otherwise incredibly complex scientific information. You will not realize you are learning so much because you will be so involved in what you are reading. The pages you are holding will change the way you feel and look faster than any pill ever could. It is incredibly rare to find anything as thoroughly researched and carefully analyzed yet so clearly and engagingly presented in the context of everyday living and eating. For anyone who has struggled with managing weight or maintaining energy, you do not need pills. You need this book.

From Dr. JoAnn E. Manson, Chief, Division of Preventive Medicine, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Professor of Medicine, Harvard Medical School
Jonathan Bailor has performed an invaluable service with his book, The Smarter Science of Slim. Jonathan has studied thousands and thousands of pages of academic research on health and weight-loss, and he has put the results into terms that the everyday person can understand. Jonathan's work is far from just another diet book.

The Smarter Science of Slim dismantles the myths that have contributed enormously to the health and weight problems that many people have, and ...
