DIET and NUTRITION

Go UnDiet is not a diet plan. This book serves as a guide that asks you to make 50 small changes for improved health and weight loss. Each of the changes is manageable and there is no calorie or fat counting involved. You can decide to group some of the changes together, incorporate all of them at once or take them one at a time. If you have questions about why you continue to gain weight but don’t feel you are over eating, this book may offer some answers. One of the biggest culprits exposed is food that is highly processed. Some of the tips you will see in the book are:

  • Start UnDieting – stop starving yourself
  • Start one change per week
  • Start doing it – set an action goal for the week
  • Start your new life with a kickoff week – keep a food journal to see what you’re really eating for a week
  • Start using problem-solving techniques – if you go off track, look for a solution
  • Un-low – look for products with low-sodium rather than low-sugar or low-fat
  • Un-cartoon – avoid products with cartoon characters on the packaging; they usually contain lots of sugar and artificial coloring
  • Un-fat-free – leave anything that says it’s fat-free on the shelf; fat-free food is not real food
EXERCISE

Exercise is mentioned in Go UnDiet briefly as a method to create a calorie deficit. It is recommended that you try to incorporate at least 20 to 25 minutes of fun activity in each day. Some of the recommendations for moving more and making it fun include:

  • Swimming
  • Take your dog for a brisk walk
  • Take a dance lesson
  • Ice skate around the rink
  • Jump rope
  • Take a spin at the park
  • Play a game with a racket
CONCLUSION

Go UnDiet addresses some of the common problems with modern diets. This book tackles diet myths that you may have struggled with and shows you how making small changes will result in true weight loss. Whether you decide to make multiple changes at once or take it slow, there is some sound advice that will lead you to a healthier lifestyle in this book.
