What if it were possible to lose body fat without hunger?
Based on the latest research into the how and why of the obesity crisis, The Boring Diet shares a practical plan, accidentally discovered by the author, to lose excess weight, preserve lean body mass, and get control over your hunger.
In this exciting and groundbreaking book you’ll learn:
Why most diet plans work – for a while – but then stall out.
Why low carb and keto are “half right” and why our body’s particular pleasure response to food, not insulin particularly, is the more effective cause of obesity.
How a groundbreaking approach to alcohol and drug therapy can be applied to the problem of addictive food.
The biochemistry of food addiction, written in easy-to-understand language.
How two studies involving a mystery “goop” and rats eating supermarket food provide clues to the causes of obesity.
Why hunger is a relative concept, and how your body uses it to trick you into eating junk food.
How to attack hunger from two directions by making your food environment less interesting – boring! – and providing healthy alternatives.
The foods you absolutely must eliminate from your environment if you are to have any hope of success.
Why low carb diets work, if followed, but also why they almost always eventually fail.
How Hollywood stars routinely gain and lose weight for movie roles.
The “BCAT” method for silencing your nagging hunger.
What a drug with a miraculous ability to cure alcoholism – if the right procedure is followed – can teach us about combatting food addiction.
A simple sample meal plan that applies all of the principles of the book.
Why The Boring Diet is a simple, but not easy, way to retrain your brain’s relationship to food.
Why you should weigh yourself daily.
How following The Boring Diet imperfectly can still produce great results.
The purpose of exercise and why it’s important for physical and mental health but has almost no impact on weight loss.
Why the “Valley of Fat Loss” makes it so difficult to stick with a weight loss effort to achieve true fitness.
Why people who are already at a healthy weight need to implement the principles of The Boring Diet to ensure continued fitness in our “obesogenic” society.
The Boring Diet should be read by everyone who struggles with excess weight. Utilizing the latest concepts in biochemistry, neuroscience, addiction science, and how these were applied in the author’s personal journey to maintain weight loss over more than a decade, The Boring Diet is a short, concise, easy-to-read solution. In the author’s words:
“I don’t recommend taking my advice blindly, but testing it for yourself. I’m not a doctor, just an independent, analytical thinker. I have had some success in business, which helps me sort through complex information amid uncertainty to develop practical plans of action. The doctors don’t seem to have the answers either, given the obesity epidemic. I hope what I say makes sense and is useful to you, but test it for yourself, take what’s useful, and discard the rest.”
