I’ve always had a somewhat unconventional approach to life. I regularly question mainstream thinking, in many different spheres of my life – including health and nutrition – so I guess that must make me a dissident.
The first thing I noticed about this book is that it isn’t just about dieting. It explains the physiology that underpins the knowledge and information that it imparts.
The author, Dawn Waldron, is a qualified nutritionist and life-coach who has endured her own personal struggle with weight management; she writes in an easy to follow, down to earth style, simplifying what could potentially be a complex subject.
The book sets the record straight: it reinforces the fact that we are all different, and, whilst the conventional approach to weight management may work for some, it doesn’t work for everyone. I like how the book sets out to spread the notion that, people aren’t fat because they eat too much and don’t move enough; rather, it’s more to do with excessive consumption of carbohydrates.
The Dissident Diet has been well received by readers, most giving it 5 stars, and it is available for download on Kindle.
