Fat is out and carbs are in, in Dr. Neal Barnard's new diet and plan, which offers an evidenced-based, food-as-medicine protocol for kickstarting weight loss and keeping it off.

Weight loss is one of our top health concerns, so much so that we keep looking for good ways to lose weight, preferably a way that is easy, effective, and permanent. It turns out that, when properly chosen, certain foods cause weight loss, with no need for the deprivation and planning that most weight-loss regimens require.

In his next book, leading nutrition researcher and veteran Hachette author Dr. Neal Barnard reveals three breakthroughs that are supported by research, revealing that certain foods:

1. can reduce the appetite

2. trap calories so they are flushed away and cannot be absorbed, and,

3. increase the body's ability to burn calories for about three hours after each meal.

These breakthroughs make weight loss incredibly easy, without calorie counting or deprivation. This diet encourages people to eat, not to stop eating. Dr. Barnard also reveals that some of the foods we think are good for us can actually be harmful, like salmon, goat cheese, and coconut oil, all of which pass easily into body fat...and often overstay their welcome.

To make it easy, Dr. Barnard will include a simple to follow meal plan that includes delicious, and even indulgent recipes which include foods we have often been told to avoid, like potatoes and pasta, so you can eat real food, and still lose real weight.

Industry Reviews
"A comprehensive and invaluable resource for those seeking a lifelong path to better health and weight loss!" --Michelle O'Donoghue, MD, MPH, FACC, FAHA, FESC, Associate Professor of Medicine, Harvard Medical School, Cardiologist, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Boston, MA

"Dr. Barnard's latest book explains succinctly and clearly how we can use foods to easily and effectively lose weight permanently. As a (delicious) bonus, the dozens of recipes make plant-based eating for weight loss simple and satiating. I encourage everyone to pick up a copy, whether you want to lose a few pounds or many more, or just want to tweak your eating habits to maximize health and wellbeing." --Michael Greger MD, FACLM, Founder,

"Neal Barnard has done it again! In a field littered with manufactured controversy he has brought simplicity and eloquence to the fundamentals of weight loss nutrition. The same foods reduce appetite, trap calories, burn more energy and allow the body to function at a healthier baseline. You would not believe it unless you tried it...or read the research!"--Jamie Kane, MD, Director, Northwell Health Center for Weight Management, Chief, Section of Obesity Medicine, Associate Professor of Medicine, Donald and Barbara Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell, Hempstead, NY

"This book is an invaluable compendium of healthy advice and recipes that are super delicious. The best advice I can give my patients on how to prevent heart disease and stay healthy and live our longest, best lives is to read this book!" --Rita F. Redberg, MD, MSc, FACC, Professor of Medicine, Araxe Vilensky Endowed Chair in Cardiology, Core Faculty, Philip R Lee Institute for Health Policy Studies, University of California at San Francisco, Division of Cardiology

"Weight management and obesity are top of mind in medical and public circles in current times. All too often, solutions are centered on appetite suppressing drugs or restrictive diets. In either case, the joy of delicious food is sadly left behind. By explaining how foods can have appetite-taming, calorie-trapping, and calorie-burning powers, Dr. Barnard shows how food as medicine fosters weight control and fights obesity. Readers will find delicious recipes and rediscover the joy of food." --Cate Collings MD, MS, FACC, DipABLM, Board Certified Cardiologist, Immediate Past President American College of Lifestyle Medicine, Chief Medical Officer, HealthFleet

"With an evidence-based approach, Neal Barnard has created an encyclopedia of nutrition knowledge, defining and orchestrating the foremost use of food for taste and optimal health." --Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Jr., MD, Cleveland Clinic Center of Wellness and Preventive Medicine, consultant, author Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease
