Book Review - The Great Fat Fraud - Mike Schatzki

The Great Fat Fraud


Review:  This is a quick book to read and yet interesting at the same time.  The author has lots of research to back up his claims.  I like the idea of walking as a way to keep my weight where it is and not have to worry about it going up every year as I age.  Getting old stinks and getting fat and old really stinks.  This book put lots of claims to rest about how you can’t be healthy and carry a bit of weight.  Your skinny friends may be at a greater risk of early death then you are…find out why when you read this book.

Exercise is not a dirty word and walking is an easy way to get it done.  10,000 steps a day about 5 miles, this included the walking you do all day long, about 3500-4000 steps a day on average.  Kick that up to 10,000 and don’t gain back the weight you just worked so hard to lose or don’t put on those aging pounds everyone seems to carry in middle age.

Read this book and find out why the way you have tried to lose weight or keep extra pounds from finding you has failed every time in the past.  Walking is the key, 10,000 steps a day…go get a pedometer and start seeing how you are doing….then kick it up to 10,000 steps for health and a healthy weight to boot.

Why I Read It The Cadance Group was looking for reviewers.

Where I Obtained the Book: Sent by The Cadance Group.

Synopsis: This revolutionary new book debunks the myths long perpetrated by the diet and weight-loss industries.

Are you tired of buying diet book after diet book? Have you tried every exercise class at your gym? Are you ready to toss the whole concept of diet and exercise out the window? It's time to try something different.

Do you believe that obesity is a disease that causes 400,000 deaths a year? It's not true! Did you know that the definitions for "overweight" and "obese" were invented by the Weight Loss Industry?

Studies prove that most people who yo-yo diet actually gain weight over time because Their body raises its set point to protect against all the famines it is experiencing. The Weight Loss Industry itself has annual revenues of more than $50 Billion!

Have you accepted the idea that the only way to avoid regaining weight after a diet is to exercise for an hour a day, most days of the week? That's not necessary!

If you're ready for a real change, and ready to take back control of your body, let "The Great Fat Fraud" provide you with the road map.

  1. I would definitely like to read this one. I have sort of abandoned the strenuous fitness regime I had adopted in my 40's and now just walk ALOT. I find that it has helped me keep my weight in check and I don't have to worry about injuries.
