Dieters Can Benefit from New Diet Book
The Diet Detective by Charles Platkin Helps Dieters Make Better Choices
The Diet Detective’s Countdown by Charles Stuart Platkin is a great resource for serious dieters or anyone interested in losing a few pounds. The book includes calculations that make it very easy for readers to see just how much a calorie is worth. Platkin believes that many dieters are unaware of how much a calorie is worth and resolves to correct this problem.
A Handy Resource
In the Diet Detective’s Countdown, Platkin gives specific calculations of just how much exercise an individual would need to do in order to burn off the calories consumed in a particular food item. Platkin includes calculations for fast-food items presumably because so many Americans love their fast food. Dieters will benefit tremendously from having a book like this on their bookshelf.
Pause for Thought
A book like this really makes you stop and think. Would you be as eager to devour a piece of fruitcake if you knew that you would need to walk for nearly ninety minutes to burn off the calories it contains? Dieters can make more informed choices when they see just what trade-off they will need to make in order to eat certain foods.
Spread The Word
This book would definitely make a great gift for the person in your life that is always on a diet or for any dieters who plan to get serious about their efforts once the New Year arrives. The great thing about this book is that if you’ve overindulged at a holiday party or at a weekend gathering you can look up the foods you ate and determine how much physical activity you will need to do in order to offset those extra calories. It’s also a great resource to consult before you indulge in a high-calorie dessert or meal. You might be willing to pass on that cheesecake once you discover just how much effort it will take for you to burn off those calories.
Platkin believes that once dieters are made aware of just how much exercise they will need to do in order to burn off the calories in their food choices they will make more informed choices and determine whether or not each particular food item is worth splurging on.
