Publisher's Summary

Foodist is a manifesto about real food and real science that proves once and for all that sustainable weight loss is possible by incorporating fresh, seasonal - and delicious - ingredients into every meal.

If you downloaded this book, there's a good chance this is not the first time you hoped a new eating plan would help you lose weight. Dieting is a popular hobby in the 21st century, and the result is typically a slow but steady weight gain over the years. Oops. Diets fail because they rely on willpower and restriction for achieving health goals, and ignore the reasons these tactics always backfire. Becoming a foodist helps you give up dieting forever and get on the real path to healthy, lasting weight control.

Foodist is an approach that actually celebrates food while taking you through the nutrition and psychology involved in eating well to help you move beyond the daily obstacles and bad habits that keep the tasteless, empty, and unsatisfying food-like products on your plate. Losing weight no longer has to be about sacrifice, deprivation, and willpower, and food will turn from something you fight into something you can actually love again. As Darya writes, "You don't need a diet. You need an upgrade."

Smart, accessible, and engaging, Foodist will help you tailor your eating habits to match your lifestyle and your food preferences, making sure the path you choose works for you in the short- and long-term. Not only will you permanently build healthier habits into your daily life, you'll lose weight and enjoy food like never before.

Practical advice that actually works

Darya gives simple ideas of how you can make small changes in habit and mindset that have actually worked for me. I work in the fitness industry and have tried every diet under the sun. Her approach of adjusting your Health Style is refreshing and easy to do. I highly recommend this book to everyone!

Great narration and engaging content

It is unusual to find an audio book that is read by the author in which the narration is this high-quality.

The content was engaging, well-organized, and fun to listen to. I have listened to other audio books about eating and food, and this was on par with the best of them.

Disclaimer: I may be slightly biased by the fact that she is married to one of my favorite technical innovators, Kevin Rose. LOL

Applicable and actually useful!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes!! The stories are relatable and the advise is straight forward. She doesn't sugar coat with lots of the normal hype of impossible promises. I have applied a considerable amount of the strategies in the book to my own busy life with some wonderful results.

Listen, re listen and then listen again.

I have the hard copy of this book too. I have read it twice and listened to the audio three times. Every time I read or listen to it I take away another gem of info that I action.

That's all very virtuous I hear you say but this is my little foodie bible. What might surprise you is that I have been a practicing pharmacist for 20 years and also trained as a Nutritional therapist and have owned a health shop.

I am great at inspiring others but needed something to inspire myself. This book has been my inspiration.

Uterly enjoyable

Even though it focuses more on the US market I can relate to it as the same patterns occur in the UK, especially in London a foodist Mecca where organic produce is at a great cost. This book changes your mindset and I believe it could also change the shape of your body. It was a very enjoyable listening experience and would recommend it to anyone looking for a change in lifestyle and not a diet.

No fads, just sense.

You'll find yourself nodding allot, like, "I knew that..." This book picks up on all the things you already know, adds a bunch of new things and puts them into a context which demands personal action. No fads just sense. Read it.
