About This Item

We aim to show you accurate product information. Manufacturers, suppliers and others provide what you see here, and we have not verified it.
With scientific research, her own chemistry background, and the traditional diets of our not-so-distant ancestors as her guide, Dee McCaffrey casts new light on an age-old wisdom: eating foods in their closest-to-natural form is the true path to sustained weight loss. It is, in fact, the remedy for almost any health problem. We are so far removed from foods in their natural state that we now call them 'health foods, ' a sad admission that we've compromised our health for the sake of convenience. The Science of Skinny aims to create a space for change, to educate and enlighten readers on the value of proper nutrition so that they can find a healthier and more life-affirming relationship with their bodies and the food they eat.

Awesome Book

I borrowed this book from local library. Loved it and hence purchased it from Walmart for keeping a copy forever. Love the contents and easy to understand.

The author makes a strong argument for for eating whole unprocessed foods. As far as I can tell the science is sound. The book is heavily footnoted with an excellent index. The problem with this diet book and maybe most of the genre is using the information. The book needed an app for tracking and helping to decide what foods to eat in the moment you need to make a decision. The recipes are somewhat complex and do require some unusual ingredients.

An interesting book on nutrition and losing weight. So many books, so many calories, so many pounds to lose. Who is right, who is not, who knows. But one thing I can say is I learned some worthwhile things along the way in reading this. I am not overweight like most Americans but tipping my ridiculous government BMI number at 25, could stand to lose a few pounds. I exercise 5 to 6 times a week opposed to most which log 0. So I learned that might be behind my slight weight problem. After reading this book you will find aside from the subtle poisons the food companies have injected into most if not all foods they have engineered a very scientific and profit driven way to get food to stick to your ribs in pounds and fatten their own bottom line. One can get get carried away with some of the ideas presented here as it borders on paranoia but there is no denying it is a serious health problem and no one else is going to do something so it is up to you. The book should help. If you make the changes. But I don't like the odds because most people have ingrained it into their lifestyle and are too prone to not give that up. And then there is fast food nation vying for your hard earned dollars. And they are succeeding in their way of at least decreasing the surplus population.
