I’ve been hard at work on a book that covers much of the material here in this blog. It’s taken quite a bit of time, but I’m proud of the result and it’s finally available for pre-order. The release date is scheduled for March 2016.
All of this material is available free in this blog as well as other places online, since information is meant to be shared. However, many people have written to me asking for a more easy-to-understand format, rather than digging through years of blog posts.
In The Obesity Code, the information is better organized into a single volume with a logical flow. I worked with a professional editor to make sure everything is explained and easy to understand. I think the result is a book that discusses all the main issues of weight gain and loss in a new light that can help understand why we have not been able to lose weight to date.
I discuss the reason why the Calories In, Calories Out paradigm is fatally flawed and how it has led to treatments such as the Eat Less, Move More strategy that simply do not work.
I then discuss the role of exercise and how obesity is properly viewed as a hormonal imbalance rather than a caloric one. By understanding the aetiology (underlying cause) of obesity, it leads naturally to solutions that have a real chance of reversing obesity. I discuss the proper diet structure and the important questions of ‘What to Eat’ and ‘When to Eat’. We introduce a time-tested strategy of weight loss that can be added to any diet with great effect.
Reading this book will give you an up-to-date, in-depth knowledge of the mechanisms of weight gain and how you can use this knowledge to lose weight and improve type 2 diabetes. Not bad for $20 or so.
The book is now available on Amazon.com here, as well as Amazon.ca in Canada. It is also available from Chapters online.
