Fat is out and carbs are in, in Dr. Neal Barnard’s new diet and plan, which offers an evidenced-based, food-as-medicine protocol for kickstarting weight loss and keeping it off.

Weight loss is one of our top health concerns, so much so that we keep looking for good ways to lose weight, preferably a way that is easy, effective, and permanent. It turns out that, when properly chosen, certain foods cause weight loss, with no need for the deprivation and planning that most weight-loss regimens require.

In his next book, leading nutrition researcher and veteran Hachette author Dr. Neal Barnard reveals three breakthroughs that are supported by research, revealing that certain foods:

1. can reduce the appetite

2. trap calories so they are flushed away and cannot be absorbed, and,

3. increase the body’s ability to burn calories for about three hours after each meal.

These breakthroughs make weight loss incredibly easy, without calorie counting or deprivation. This diet encourages people to eat, not to stop eating. Dr. Barnard also reveals that some of the foods we think are good for us can actually be harmful, like salmon, goat cheese, and coconut oil, all of which pass easily into body fat…and often overstay their welcome.

To make it easy, Dr. Barnard will include a simple to follow meal plan that includes delicious, and even indulgent recipes which include foods we have often been told to avoid, like potatoes and pasta, so you can eat real food, and still lose real weight.

Dr. Neal D. Barnard, MD, FACC, is a faculty member of the George Washington University School of Medicine and President of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine.
