'When you start a diet, the first thing you lose is your mind.' - Bradley Trevor Greive The biggest name in gift books is getting smaller - and you can, too. Bradley Trevor Greive, the 280-pound publishing giant, has started slimming down while coming to grips with the bloated eating habits and health beliefs of our modern world. Are skinny people happier, smarter, or more successful than overweight people? No, probably not. All we know for sure is that they find it easier to fit through narrow spaces. With his trademark wit and humorous animal photographs, BTG explains that the true motivation for losing excess weight and keeping it off is purely to enjoy a better quality of life, to get the most out of our brief time on this earth. Both hilarious and hard hitting, DIETING CAUSES BRAIN DAMAGE identifies the most common causes of weight gain as well as the perils of extreme dieting, suggesting that the number-one lesson is to 'Keep your mouth shut.' This reduces the number of calories consumed, and it stops you from constantly whining and making excuses about your appearance.
You don't need a PhD, millions of dollars, a plastic surgeon, a library of expensive fad diet books, or a Day-Glo Lycra bodysuit to get into shape. Eating well, enjoying quality sleep, and getting a little exercise is the key to effective weight loss and personal health and fitness. This is a wonderful gift book for anyone who would like to be in better shape and could use a few laughs along the way - a uniquely refreshing guide to looking, feeling, and living well that is free from false promises, tasteless recipes, and leg warmers.
