Living Without's Favorite Books: A Weighty Subject
Are you trying to shed pounds but find yourself binging on nutritionally stripped processed foods loaded with sugar and calories? Pick up The Science of Skinny; Start Understanding Your Body’s Chemistry—And Stop Dieting Forever (DaCapo Life Long) by Dee McCaffrey. An organic chemist and nutritionist who lost 100 pounds after overcoming her own food addictions, McCaffrey examines the physiological lure of junk food and explains the science behind why we often “can’t eat just one.” The Science of Skinny includes over 50 recipes (not all gluten free but easily adapted) but this is more than a cookbook. It’s instruction on how to change your diet and your lifestyle in order to successfully lose excess weight—and keep it off. A lifeline for overcoming food obsession.
