     Americans are overweight, and they’re getting heavier. Other than wanting to perform invasive surgical procedures, most doctors offer little help. Their advice is usually “Eat less, exercise more,” which falls back on the outdated dogma of calories in/calories out. Medical research on dieting is confusing and often contradictory. Not only are physicians unsure about w ...more

Mark Liponis works as a doctor at the Canyon Ranch (an upscale diet center). Over the years, he believes he has found the secret to weight loss and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. I can’t say I agree or disagree but I enjoyed his book. His theory is based on a sort of common sense.

I’m not a huge fan of diets, especially dieting books, because I don’t believe there’s a magic solution to weight loss.

Good information about food and the difference that could be between people that eat like farmer and people that eat life hunters. Good to know, but not so easy to apply without recipes...

Alcune buone informazioni sulle eventuali differenze tra coloro che mangiano come contadini (maggioranza di carboidrati) e coloro che mangiano come cacciatori (maggioranza di proteine animali). Buono a sapersi ma sarebbero state informazioni più utili se fossero state corredate da ricette...

THANKS TO NETGALLEY

Very interesting book and describes me to a "t". My only disappointment is that the book does don't give you dietary guidelines for weight loss. The authors tells you to eat a low fat or high protein diet but does not share how much you should eat. Quick read and I highly recommend.

Human metabolisms are divided into two types: the farmer and the hunter based on nutritional needs. Dietary requirements are explored for each as are health risks. Some recipes are included. The book contains a lot of medical jargon.

The author believes wholeheartedly in dieters labeling themselves as either hunters or farmers. Doesn't such classifying complicate the task of changing food habits? Must a person be in either one category or the other?

It gave a few good tips - but I think most of it has been presented before by other authors. Blood type diet, body shape diet etc.
