Summary
"After years of failed diets, Dr. Nadja Hermann weighed 150kg at the age of 30. All her life, she had heard and read about hundreds of reasons why diets wouldn't work for her. But when her weight started to seriously affect her health, she took a hard look at the science and realised that most of what she believed about dieting was a myth. What was more, these myths were preventing her from losing weight. Forget clean eating, paleo or fasting-- it was conquering these elements of "Fat logic" that finally led to Hermann achieving a healthy weight. One and a half years later, she weighed 65kg, and has maintained that weight to this day."--Page [4] of cover

  • I only eat 1000 kcal per day, but I don't lose weight -- But I really only eat 1000 kcal a day and still can't lose weight -- Counting calories doesn't work for me -- My slim friend eats way more than me -- My metabolism is wrecked -- Eating too little is dangerous: you're left with no energy and reduced muscle mass -- I only ate an apple a day and I still put on weight -- Disease and medication can make you fat, and there's nothing you can do about it. (My doctor said so.) -- Obesity is largely due to your genes -- Gut bacteria make you fat -- (Fat logic for women) Childbirth automatically makes you fat -- You gain weight as you get older because your metabolism slows down -- My metabolism is slower than other people's -- I can't lose weight because I can't exercise
  • BMI is bullshit: my weight is muscle -- Being overweight isn't even that bad for you -- But my blood-test results are great! -- What about overweight athletes? -- It's actually healthier to be slightly overweight than to be normal weight -- Just because excess weight is associated with illnesses, that doesn't necessarily mean it causes them -- Thin people can get sick, too -- Who says it's definitely the weight that makes you sick? -- At least fat people are less likely to get osteoporosis -- According to the obesity paradox, overweight people have a better survival rate for some diseases -- Your set point determines your weight -- The 60 per cent of the population who are overweight can't all be 'lazy' and 'weak-willed' -- We're all being taken for a ride by the diet industry -- I know someone who lost loads of weight on this new diet: it alters your metabolism, so you can eat as much as you want -- Healthy eating is just too expensive. It doesn't matter how much you eat, what's important is what you eat -- 95 per cent of all diets end in failure -- Yo-yo dieting is way more unhealthy than being fat -- You have to give your body what it wants. Constant restriction is unhealthy
  • I'd rather enjoy life! -- You have to follow these certain rules to lose weight -- If losing weight was really that easy, everyone would be thin -- XY will speed up your metabolism -- You're bound to put on weight if you stop smoking -- Food with negative calories: eat more to weigh less! -- If you want to lose weight, eat more fruit -- Slimming products just make you fat -- Calorie counting is an eating disorder and spoils your enjoyment of eating -- The day's ruined now, anyway -- You should never lose more than a pound a week -- I could never be really thin, my body isn't built that way -- (Male fat logic) Being a normal weight would make me a 'puny weakling' -- Being overweight doesn't impede me in anything -- If I were thin, all my problems would be solved -- (Female fat logic) Weight training? No, thanks. I don't want to be muscly -- I've gained weight since I started exercising, so it must be muscle mass -- Before I try to lose weight, I need to find out why I'm fat -- I'm doing everything right, but I've stopped losing weight
  • Counting calories is stupid: you can never count them accurately anyway -- I can't lose weight because I'm depressed -- Weighing yourself every day is bad for you -- Being overweight is an illness -- A gastric band is a quick and simple solution -- My family, friends, and acquainances don't think I need to lose weight -- The problem with being overweight is overstated (I don't call it obesity) -- Doctors blame everythign on weight -- You'll slip into anorexia before you know it! -- Overweight people already face enough discrimination as it is! -- This ideal of extreme thinness is just a modern 'fashion trend' -- Men like women to have a bit of meat on them -- People who say that overweight people are unattractive are against body acceptance -- When I lose weight, I'll finally like myself -- All that doesn't apply to me, thank goodness... -- Keeping the weight off is the most difficult part -- (Anti-fat logic) Now, I'd still like to know a few tricks!
