Scientific American called Dr. Charlotte Markey’s book, Smart People Don’t Diet: How the Latest Science Can Help You Lose Weight Permanently, “possibly the best book on weight loss ever written.”

The problem with diets, aside from the fact that they are never fun, is that they almost never work. And scientific evidence makes it clear that you’re as likely to gain weight when you diet, as you are to lose weight. So, what are you supposed to do if you want to weigh less so that you have improved bloodwork, so your knees don’t hurt or so your clothes fit better?

Losing weight doesn’t have to be about constant restriction and it doesn’t have to be miserable. Smart People Don’t Diet is a back-to-basics approach to gradual, sustainable weight loss based on decades of scientific evidence from psychologists, nutritionists, public health professionals, and doctors, and it really works.
