Book Review - The F-Factor Diet
Tanya Zuckerbrot Book Review - The F-Factor Diet
Tanya Zuckerbrot

Tanya Zuckerbrot is a dietitian/nutritionist with 10 years of clinical experience. She has the knowledge and experience to help you get rid of that extra fat forever. You can learn everything you need to know from her book, "The F-Factor Diet."

What Does the F Stand For?

The F stands for fiber. Fiber is the indigestible material found in plants. It's important for a healthy digestive system and will help keep you regular. Tanya told me more than one billion dollars are spent each year on laxatives. Why so much? Because people don't get enough fiber in their diets.

Fiber also helps you feel full longer without adding calories, so it helps you lose weight and maintain that weight loss. In her book, "The F-Factor Diet," Zuckerbrot teaches you how to use fiber as the cornerstone of a healthy diet that will keep you slim and healthy.

What Makes This Diet So Effective?

The big reason the "The F-Factor Diet" is so effective is because it focuses on what foods you are adding into your diet, not foods you can't have. Fad diets typically rely on denying certain nutrients such as carbohydrates or fats and that usually that denial results in feelings of deprivation and ultimately people go back to eating the foods their diet tells them they should not have. "The F-Factor Diet" is not another fad diet; it's a healthy life-long eating program.

What Makes This Diet Easy to Follow?

Zuckerbrot's experience with real patients has helped her to design a diet that is easy to follow for a lifetime. The foods you add to your diet will keep you feeling full. Also, they're real foods. You can buy everything you need at any grocery store, or choose meals at your favorite restaurants. The meals you eat will be satisfying, so you'll have an easy time avoiding high calorie snacks and junk food between meals.

Why Buy the Book?

As you read "The F Factor Diet," Zuckerbrot will teach you about eating and why it's important to follow a healthy diet. She also includes all the tools and information you need to track your daily fiber intake. Having this book in your personal library is a lot like having your own personal dietitian to guide you on your healthy new diet.
