Publisher's Description

With scientific research, her own chemistry background, and the traditional diets of our not-so-distant ancestors as her guide, Dee McCaffrey casts new light on an age-old wisdom: Eating foods in their closest-to-natural form is the true path to sustained weight loss and, in fact, the remedy for almost any health problem. We are so far removed from foods in their natural state that we now call them "health foods," a sad admission that we’ve compromised our health for the sake of convenience. The Science of Skinny aims to create a space for change--to educate and enlighten readers on the value of proper nutrition so that they can find a healthier and more life-affirming relationship with their bodies and the food they eat.

Offering serial dieters a healthy and lifelong way to shed pounds--and keep them off-- The Science of Skinny includes: kick-start plans; guidelines for family- and kid-friendly meals; quick and delicious menus and more than 50 recipes; shopping lists and eating-on-the-go tips; easy fitness routines; and more.

Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews, 6/1/12
"Sample menus, recipes and tips on how to avoid processed foods make this a helpful lifestyle guide."

Booklist, 6/28/12
"Her personal story is compelling; the statistics she uses are alarming (today 38 states have obesity rates of more than 25 percent), and her theme is strong…Her passion and her personal story are so inspiring that her antidieting, pronatural foods book is worth a look."

Taste for Life
, July 2012
"This eye-opening book…offers compelling scientific evidence of the harm junk foods inflict."

Living Without, December/January 2012
"This is more than a cookbook. It’s instruction on how to change your diet and your lifestyle in order to successfully lose excess weight—and keep it off. A lifeline for overcoming food obsession."

Energy Times, January 2013
"The Science of Skinny is designed to give people the knowledge they need to become responsible consumers."
