What Your Waistline Measurement Reveals – Read the Owner’s
Manual for Waist Management
Your waist measurement dictates your state of health.
That’s the bottom line of Mehmet C. Oz and Michael F. Roizen’s book “You: On A Diet: The Owner’s Manual
for Waist Management”.
As the authors of a wide-ranging “You” series of books designed to treat your body as well as you
would treat a classic automobile, this duo of doctors are using state-of-the-art scientific knowledge to
address the worldwide issue of calorie-rich lifestyles.
They begin by redefining what a healthy figure really is. Gone are the stereotypes and impossible targets
that we all aspire to. Oz and Roizen provide a new perspective on how your stomach, your genetic make-up,
stress levels and even your brain can dictate whether you are as thin as a twig or as chunky as a trunk.
For those of us who have seen the multitude of diet plans come and go and have yo-yo’d up and down with them,
this may seem like just another fad. What differentiates Oz and Roizen’s work is that it is in no way superficial.
They’re not going for the quick fix although they do promise a two-inch waist reduction in two weeks which
is no small feat to trim your waistline quicky. No, they are here to educate us about the technicalities
of how fat works for us and against us both on the surface and inside our incredibly intricate bodies.
This is no staid doctor’s report. You’ll find humor, wit and language that connects. Mehmet Oz and Michael
Roizen have made “You: On A Diet: The Owner’s Manual for Waist Management” the equivalent of an
operating system for your body computer.
