BOOK REVIEW

About the Author : The author has done extensive research in the fields of exercise physiology, diet and nutrition at the U.S. Naval Air Development Center and in his private medical practice.

About the book :

Dr. Stutman's new book ‘100 Best Weight-Loss Tips’ features a series of effective weight-loss strategies that promote healthy eating habits and an easy, safe, permanent weight loss system. Dr. Stutman also shows how low carbohydrate diets are extremely dangerous to your health and how these diets invariably lead to rebound weight gain once they are stopped. The book gives you the necessary building blocks to lose weight quickly, stay fit and firm, and live a longer, healthier life.

Dr. Stutman says there is no need to follow unsafe low-carbohydrate diets that deprive you of healthy, good tasting nutritious foods. These unhealthy diets not only fill up your body's fat cells with extra pounds of fat, but they also can clog your arteries with cholesterol, which increases your risk of heart attacks and strokes. Kidney and liver damage have also been reported to occur in some people who have been on extended low carbohydrate diets. Low carbohydrate diets are not only extremely dangerous to your health, but invariably lead to rebound weight gain once they are stopped.
