Using Real Food and Real Science to Lose Weight Without Dieting

Darya Pino Rose

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Foodist is a manifesto about real food and real science that proves once and for all that sustainable weight loss is possible by incorporating fresh, seasonal—and delicious—ingredients into every meal.

If you picked up this book, there's a good chance this is not the first time you hoped a new eating plan would help you lose weight. Dieting is a popular hobby in the twenty-first century, and the result is typically a slow but steady weight gain over the years. Oops. Diets fail because they rely on willpower and restriction for achieving health goals, and ignore the reasons these tactics always backfire. Becoming a foodist helps you give up dieting forever and get on the real path to healthy, lasting weight control.

Foodist is an approach that actually celebrates food while taking you through the nutrition and psychology involved in eating well to help you move beyond the daily obstacles and bad habits that keep the tasteless, empty, and unsatisfying food-like products on your plate. Losing weight no longer has to be about sacrifice, deprivation, and willpower, and food will turn from something you fight into something you can actually love again. As Darya writes, "You don't need a diet. You need an upgrade."

Smart, accessible, and engaging, Foodist will help you tailor your eating habits to match your lifestyle and your food preferences, making sure the path you choose works for you in the short- and long-term. Not only will you permanently build healthier habits into your daily life, you'll lose weight and enjoy food like never before.

Publishers Weekly Review

Jul 01, 2013 – Food blogger and neuroscientist Rose maintains her weight, she says proudly and sheepishly, by eating whatever she wants—and what she wants is "healthy food most of the time." In this food-positive self-help volume, Rose rejects dieting and deprivation: "Shouldn't there be more to life than constantly denying yourself the things you enjoy?" She bemoans regimens such as Atkins and Weight Watchers. Instead, in addition to what we eat, she encourages readers to pay attention to how and why we eat; elements that can significantly impact long-term health. However, she coins cringe-worthy terms like "foodist" and "healthstyle", her discussion can get awkward amid amateurish writing, and she pulls quotes from random places (Yoda, for one). For the most part, however, Rose does a decent job laying out her good-food plan. She offers advice on shopping and cooking, provides workable lists for well-stocked pantries, and gathers key points into occasional sidebars: "Nine Surefire Ways to Sabotage Your Weight Loss" "The Top 10 Most Underrated Health Foods" "Forty-Two Code Words for Sugar". Although nothing in Rose's book is earth-shattering news, the enthusiasm with which she delivers it remains accessible and encouraging.
