The Smarter Science of Slim

Jonathan Bailor's intensive nutrition study offers information for real, lasting weight loss.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

"Eat More, Exercise Less." This is the concept of author, Jonathan Bailor. His book is the result of a decade of collaborating with top doctors and researchers to determine truth about diet, exercise, and weight loss. Bailor has taken scientific jargon and broken it down to provide an easy to read book that breaks down long believed myths about health and weight. The book points to how eating more of real healthy food will leave no room or desire for calorie dense and nutrient deficient foods, the ones that make us fat and unhealthy. Also, Bailor's work points to how our previous notions of working out to burn off the unhealthy calories have not been effective. The research Bailor has highlighted leaves the reader with the notion that marketing and lies have lead us down an unhealthy path. True weight loss and health comes from eating more nutrient rich foods and doing less calorie burning exercise.
