So often people equate being slim with being healthy, and with so many people searching for ways to lose weight, dieting books are in abundance. But so few of these books actually back their information with scientific research and proven weight-loss methods, instead relying on celebrity to sell the latest fad. Often these books do little to help people achieve their weight-loss goals, leading to frustration and even excess weight gain. That’s where The Pick ‘n Mix Diet comes in! This book will help the reader lose weight by using a very different approach from other diet and nutrition books.

Unlike those books, the weight-loss plan presented here doesn’t require sticking to the same boring diet for several months, but rather incorporates 10 different diets that can be changed every week. These diets include reduced carb, reduced fat, high protein, low energy density, and various intermittent fasting diets-all backed by scientific evidence. By picking and mixing various diets, readers will prevent dieting boredom, have fewer cravings, and will be more likely to stick to their weight-loss plans. More importantly, the variety will ensure there are no nutrient deficiencies. In addition, the diets are combined with light to moderate exercise so that the reader will only lose fat, not lean muscle. Sticking to one boring diet for weeks on end is not the way to lose weight. Rather, this novel but evidence-based approach to weight loss is guaranteed to be effective, healthy, and safe. With The Pick ‘n Mix Diet, the reader will achieve any weight-loss goal!
