Obesity (from the Latin obesus, one who has become plump from eating) first appears in western medical literature in Thomas Venner’s Via Recta in 1620. However, many centuries before, Maimonides had already addressed this. A disease which has been reported almost 400 years ago in the western medical literature, but who’s incidence continues to rise in epidemic proportions.
Obesity is a chronic multifaceted disease that requires multimodal management. To archive success significant life changes need to be made. Dietary manipulation, increase in physical activity and behavior modification need to be introduced. The shortcoming of many diet programs is that they focus on only one aspect of the problem, without acknowledging obesity has multiple causes. A holistic balanced approach is required if one hopes to achieve and maintain success in weight management.
As opposed to many other weight loss plans, the ‘5 Skinny Habits’ puts forward a weight loss program that addresses dietary, exercise and behavioral aspects of eating. I like the idea of combining ancient sources with current opinion. The current medical literature and advice is all sound and well researched. The eating plan itself certainly fits all the current recommended guidelines.
One of the misconceptions people have about weight loss is that rapid and large changes are desirable or even possible. The importance of gradual and sustained changes is emphasized in this book. Our medical teachers often remind us that teachings which were once regarded as outdated and obsolete regularly come back into practice when new facts about them are discovered. The understanding of proper nutrition is returning to the principles espoused by the Master Physicians.
It is my belief that this book will be of great benefit to those that read it and apply its principles appropriately.
“5 Skinny Habits” offers a comprehensive and realistic approach to adopting a healthy lifestyle. Zulberg accurately addresses the need for inner transformation, and development of new perceptions and habits, in achieving long lasting results. It is fascinating how he creates a parallel between the ancient wisdom of the “master physicians” and modern day science. Using evidence based practices from multiple disciplines Zulberg has developed a program that integrates behavioral therapy, cardio/ strength training and sensible dietary practices.
As a dietitian I discourage fad diets as they are not practical in the long term and have the potential to be counter-productive. “5 Skinny Habits” on the other hand is quite the opposite. It is based on the most current research as supported by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and government initiatives such as the USDA’s Dietary Guidelines for Americans. Zulberg’s work confirms that concepts like increasing fruits and vegetable intake, choosing whole grains over refined products, including lean sources of protein, and drinking a glass of red wine with your meal, have been proven effective throughout the ages.
This book is an easy and enjoyable read. I strongly recommend that everyone include a copy “5 Skinny Habits” in their libraries and that they read it over and over again.
The research in this book is exemplary. The sources used for the exercise guidelines, the ACSM and the Journal of the American Medical Association, are the most accurate and leaders in the sport medicine and wellness industry.
At last year’s FIFA Medical Conference, Prof Karim Kahn spoke about how inactivity is killing the American population as it leads to chronic diseases and obesity. The 5 Skinny Habits cardio advice and eight strengthening exercise routine is a total body workout which can be mastered in the comfort of your own home.
Most diets are expensive and still lead back to old bad habits. This program teaches how to implement small and practical steps. My patients love the program as they experience results in a defined time frame. I recommend this book, not only to people who want a permanent solution but also to professionals in the field.
