The Smarter Science of Slim Blog--Get it: SmarterScienceOfSlim.com/the-blog Since the 1970's we have been told that eating less and exercising more is healthy and leads to lasting weight loss. Since then obesity, diabetes, and other diet related diseases have risen to epidemic levels, overtaken tobacco as leading cause of death in the United States, and account for over $190 billion a year in health-care spending. Consistent with these trends, but in sharp contrast to what the food, fitness, and pharmaceutical industries tell us, Jonathan Bailor's new book The Smarter Science of Slim, the single largest scientific analysis of health and fitness ever conducted, proves that eating less and exercising more harms our health and leads to fat gain 95.4 percent of the time. The Smarter Science of Slim simplifies the analysis of over 1,100 scientific studies to bridge the gap between the scientific world and the everyday world, dispel the myths and marketing that have fueled the current health care crisis, and provide a proven lifestyle for lasting wellness by focusing on quality of food and exercise and then eating more and exercising less -- but smarter. The Smarter Science of Slim is endorsed by the world-wide scientific community including top doctors at the Harvard Medical School, John Hopkins, and UCLA, and approved as curriculum for registered dieticians (RDs) by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. “We all know what the typical approach leads to,” remarked Bailor who is confident that the last forty years of research from the most brilliant medical minds around the world prove that we can use this atypical “eat more, exercise less but smarter” approach to generate atypical results: improved health and reduced obesity and diet-related disease rates.
