"You On A Diet: The Owner's Manual for Waist Management"

by Michael F. Roizen & Mehmet C. Oz, narrated by Johnny Heller, non-fiction, 2008, Playaway audio, 10.5hrs, rating=4

"For the first time in our history, scientists are uncovering astounding medical evidence about dieting. Now Michael Roizen and Mehmet Oz translate this cutting-edge information to help you shave inches off your waist, by giving you the best weapon against fat: Knowledge. Through their signature entertaining style, Drs Roizen and Oz teach you about your body how and why it stores calories, burns fat, and reacts to the foods you test your body with. Ultimately, they give you the Plan and formulas that will help you lose up to two inches from your waist in two weeks on your way to your ideal size." (Goodreads)

YOU-reka!  A true manual  ... it contains detailed-seemingly boring gist (biology and physiology of fat and such though I actually thought it was fascinating!), sprinkled humor (can get irritating if you listen/read through the entire book), illustrations (I had to get the bound book too), and index (cool). 

If you're motivated enough and ready for the leap of healthy eating then this might be the book for you!  It was quite informational and motivational.  My favorite part was the mantra, "At the next available moment, make an authorized YOU-turn.".  Overall, impressive book.

It was good that I listened to this book first.  Mr. Heller's narration was vibrant and effective.  Perhaps if I had read it, I would have found it too taxing. 

Did I try it.  Not yet but it did motivate me to walk everyday for 30 minutes ..okay, almost everyday.  It's a start!  :)


  1. “You on a Diet” is actually very informative. It seriously has everything you need to know about dieting and fitness, like how to get the nutrients you need, recipes for every meal, excising tips etc. It's awesome; I refer back to it all the time.

  2. You're exactly right Courier! It's an awesome reference. --Thanks for stoppin' by. :)
