This revolutionary book reveals:

  • Ten reasons why eating a low-fat, calorie controlled diet makes sustained weight loss virtually impossible.
  • Why the less hungry you are, the more weight you’ll lose.
  • How different types of calories have different fattening potential.
  • Why weight is not just about calories, but the impact our diet has on key hormones including insulin and leptin.
  • Why you should ignore foods labelled ‘low fat’ or ‘light’.
  • Why aerobic exercise has little impact on weight, and the type of exercise that does.
  • The simple and mental tricks to ensure permanent success.

Review:

‘I am relishing this phenomenal, science-based demolition of the bankrupt diet and `healthy eating' advice that's been churned out by the nutrition establishment for the last fifty years. Why dieting is a total waste of time. Why fat is not the enemy. The `slimming' foods that actually encourage you to put on weight. Why you should base your eating on time-honoured unprocessed foods, not the low-cal junk that fills food industry coffers. A really important book.’ Joanna Blythman

‘Escape The Diet Trap is a masterly, forensic deconstruction of current nutritional gospel, a long overdue dish to relish.’ Joanna Blythman, The Grocer

‘Briffa’s tips will leave you trim, toned and pleasantly hunger-free.’ Woman

‘I was really impressed, mainly because the weight loss was so quick.’ Woman and Home

‘...builds a sustainable relationship with food that will bring long-term weight loss without excessive exercise, calorie control or hunger.’ Saga

‘I lost 6lbs in two weeks, despite eating a lot more than usual. I’m hooked.’ Cosmopolitan
