Book Review: ‘The Thinderella Syndrome’ By Dr. Dennis Gage

Filed under: Review — @ March 19, 2007

Dr. Dennis Gage says weight loss is more about living than dieting

THINDERELLA: Mirror, mirror on the wall, what’s the best diet of them all?
MIRROR: It’s the one you can make your permanent lifestyle change.
THINDERALLA: No, seriously, which diet can it be?
MIRROR: Don’t do a diet, live a diet. That’s the path to success.
THINDERELLA: There’s got to be more to it than that.

Are you a Thinderella thinking you can diet for a while and control your weight permanently? Hello?! It’s time to snap out of your diet dreamland and wake up to the reality that lasting, effective weight loss can only come when you not only equip yourself with the right eating plan but also a strategy for taking control of your weight for the rest of your life.

This is precisely what internist Dr. Dennis Gage helps you do in his book entitled The Thinderella Syndrome. While there are thousands of weight loss books available from A to Z these days, Dr. Gage is one of the only ones who shows people how to get past that long-term barrier to lasting weight control with a clear and conciise step-by-step plan to do it.

In my recent interview with Dr. Gage at my “Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb” blog, he mentioned the biggest health problem Americans face to today is “yo-yo dieting.” It’s all a matter of keeping the same kind of intense enthusiasm and motivation AFTER your weight loss has happened as you did DURING your weight loss experience.

This involves not just the physical changes in your diet and exercise, but also some specific behavioral changes that Dr. Gage discusses at great length in his book.
