Drop the Diet and Lose Weight

Posted: March 1, 2009 in diet, Pam Anderson, weight loss

There’s nothing like finding someone who agrees with you — especially on a touchy subject like the fact that diets don’t work. But now you don’t have to take my word for it … Pam Anderson (not the boobs-bikinis-and-boyfriends Pam, this is the one who’s based her career on being a great cook! In fact, she’s the CookSmart columnist for USA Weekend.) has a new book detailing how she lost forty pounds — and kept if off, hello!! — without giving up good food.

It’s hard to imagine a tougher situation than being an acclaimed food expert and trying to lose weight. So what’s her secret? In two words — common sense! After years of dieting, Ms. Anderson realized that the hunger and deprivation that go hand in hand with most diets are killers. Instead of a temporary solution (in other words, yet another diet), she changed her lifestyle — and lost the extra pounds she’d been struggling with for years.

If you’d like to know more, here is a link to an interview, plus an outstanding and very personal podcast in which she talks openly about her lifelong struggle with weight. Great stuff, all of it! (In the interests of full disclosure, I am not receiving any compensation of any kind for recommending this book. Also, I do not know Ms. Anderson and have no personal interest in her work. I just loved what she had to say, mainly because she agrees with me!!)
