Since then i've been working to maintain that weight loss by better understanding human physiology so a book promising to explain a decade of scientific research was too good to resist. Unfortunately I found the book lacking in several connected areas. My first issue with the book is the lack of depth on the science.
While Bailor does often go into the science he seems to do so only enough to Make the cas In I lost lbs following nutritional advice similar to what's outlined in this book.
While Bailor does often go into the science he seems to do so only enough to Make the case for a "what" where with only a few more paragraphs he could explain the "why"; the all important question good science seeks to answer. Instead he leaves this as a footnote to the article as an exercise to the reader. This leads to my second issue: This is where my third issue arises: While not as scientific as implied the book is a good start, especially if you haven't read "Good Calories, Bad Calories".
And as I mentioned there was much covered which overlapped with my own experience. Jan 23, Rick Ballard rated it it was ok. This book was recommended to me and promised to be a good overview of the newer science that contravenes traditional wisdom on the effect of carbohydrates on body fat. In some respects, this did follow through; he cited a large number of interesting studies and went over the purported mechanisms by which carbs affect your metabolism.
Unfortunately, I ultimately came away not being able to trust his analysis of the science. From criticism of this book I've read elsewhere, it seems a lot of his re This book was recommended to me and promised to be a good overview of the newer science that contravenes traditional wisdom on the effect of carbohydrates on body fat.
From criticism of this book I've read elsewhere, it seems a lot of his reference to studies cherry-picks the evidence he wants and disregards inconvenient results. He cites a lot of individual studies instead of citing peer-reviewed surveys of available studies; there's no way for me to tell if he isn't just choosing the studies that back him up and not reporting on the rest.
The author's tone throughout this book is full-on huckster, with lots of sloganeering and misleading catchphrases he says over and over again that you should "Eat More -- Smarter" with his recommendations when you actually should reduce your calorie intake. His investment in health-industry conspiracy theories makes him sound like a quack; to him, the entire fitness industry is actively harming people and exists not to make anyone thinner but to milk them for all they're worth.
It may be that a lot of the traditional wisdom about diet and exercise is wrong -- or at least not the whole story -- and the low-fat craze does seem to have been a big mistake, but he takes that and runs with it all the way to looney-land.
His actual diet recommendations sound utterly joyless to me I'm totally willing to moderate my carbs, and those may be good foods to eat, but he seems to take it all way too far and completely discount the importance of a varied, interesting, and tasty diet. On top of that, he spouts a lot of Paleo rhetoric backing it up with conjecture rather than science even though the foods he's recommending aren't Paleo at all. Ultimately I did get some useful stuff out of this book, so it wasn't a total waste.
This piqued my interest in High-Intensity Interval Training vs the 45 minutes of cardio I've done in the past, and made me aware of how easy it is for traditional cardio to actually result in a net increase of calories in due to increased hunger.
This book did make me want to increase the amount of protein in my diet, though that conflicts somewhat with my goal to eat less meat and more vegetables. This did make me more aware of the glycemic index and satiety power of food I eat. Ultimately, though, after reading this book I find myself very frustrated by the amount of conflicting research and nutritional advice out there, and that there is no clearly trustworthy expert to turn to.
Government guidelines don't seem to have kept up with the science, but low-carb gurus also seem to cherrypick and distort. The best answer I have for now is to be moderate my carb intake and avoid most processed foods, but that's an unsatisfactorily vague guideline.
This book, sadly, just made me more unclear on what's true and what's trustworthy in diet science. Jul 16, Tanya rated it it was amazing Shelves: Best of all, he shows you how to do the exercises at home so no gym required. I will admit this was a lot of info to take in.
I am looking forward to applying what I gave learned.
Feb 19, JoAnn rated it it was amazing. So much of what we think about nutrition, weight loss and exercise is wrong; not because information is lacking, but because misinformation is rampant. In the Smarter Science of Slim, Jonathan Bailor has researched weight loss studies and boiled them down so that they are easy to understand.
The conclusion: Couple that with resistance exercise that focuses on eccentric movement and delivers a powerhouse workout in minimal time and you have a recipe for sustainable health and weight loss. Because of the focus on vegetables, this is a program that can be maintained lifelong. And What to Do About it, because it takes some of the same scientific information and brings it down to the layman's level. Then Bailor takes it to the next level by telling how to use the information to force a metabolic change with his SANE approach.
This is a must-read for anyone who has struggled with weight loss. Feb 10, Rikke rated it it was amazing Shelves: Very well-written this book based on scientific facts introduces a long-term approach to health and fat loss and confronts a lot of myths. A lot of what we have learned about nutrition is actually wrong! If you care about your health at all you should read this book. The 5 stars are for the life-changing knowledge. Sep 27, Stephanie rated it it was amazing. Sep 21, Christian Engler rated it it was amazing.
At the beginning of every new year, people make that perennial New Year's resolution that they are going to stick to a diet come what may, so they eat less and exercise more, and they see very minimal results for their best intentioned efforts. People go into diets and fitness regimens all gun-ho and idealistic, only to be left jaded and discouraged.
More-often-than-not, people actually pick up extra pounds and do more harm to their bodies than before they started a fitness and nutrition routine At the beginning of every new year, people make that perennial New Year's resolution that they are going to stick to a diet come what may, so they eat less and exercise more, and they see very minimal results for their best intentioned efforts.
More-often-than-not, people actually pick up extra pounds and do more harm to their bodies than before they started a fitness and nutrition routine. They listen to misleading pharmaceutical lobbyists and questionable food company CEOs who do not have the best interests of the consumers at heart.
Rather, they are interested more in what's in their wallets. In the end, only the companies and government come out on top, on top with the consumer's all mighty dollar. Here is where Jonathan Bailor's remarkable and long overdue fitness and nutrition book comes into play.
He essentially says that people should eat more and exercise less, for that is the only way to lose weight and get results. For most people, they choose the latter type of eating, and that is the first and most important problem to address. In The Smarter Science of Slim, Jonathan Bailor addresses facets of body types, why certain people are naturally slim and why others continuously struggle with weight issues, for each set point is different for all of us.
Above all else, he talks about food, the best kinds of food-SANE foods-those with water, fiber and that are protein packed. Additionally, they should have a high satiety. He writes about avoiding starchy vegetables like corn and potatoes and how consumers should be eating organics, eating foods similar to that in which our forbearers ate when they hunted and gathered.
When people deviated from that path and redirected their appetites to preprocessed and sugared foods, among other unhealthy types, that is when health issues and problems arose, particularly diabetes, clogs in the fat metabolism system, clogged arteries, to a whole gamut of health issues that can plague the body when it is not provided with the best nutrients available, for people are often so busy with work and families that they are easily misled and are only to eager for the quick fix.
The Smarter Science of Slim is a jam packed health and fitness book that has an amazing degree of good quality information in it, and it would behoove readers who truly want to make a commitment to a healthier lifestyle to pick this book up.
Jonathan Bailor seems quite passionate in his desire to help people help themselves move away form a sedentary and junk food filled lifestyle. His goal is to get ordinary people to be energized and choose an active alternative, and the abundance of examples that he provides in his book is really quite thrilling. He offers examples of the types of foods that we should eat as well as the kinds of exercises-specifically deep exercise and eccentric exercise-that people should be performing in order to obtain the kind of healthy and fit bodies that so many "experts" promise but fall short in delivering.
The book is quite detailed with charts, graphs and statistics, all conveyed in a simple and straightforward manner that any lay person can easily understand. When it comes to the fitness, he always reiterates that good nutrition is the most paramount thing, for the idea is to eat more and exercise less. Lastly, the fitness diagrams are exceptionally helpful, for they can be done at home just as well as at a gym.
And the book is not filled with ridiculous high class glossy photos of fitness models smiling and providing nothing. The book is purely about the science of health, how the body operates, the good fuel needed to keep it clean and operational and the assorted exercise routines that keep it in shape. They are all interconnected and are of vital importance for good overall health. This was a great book and one that I often refer to, especially when I do my food shopping or want to order a health oriented product online.
Whatever questions you may have, be assured, The Smarter Science of Slim will have an answer.
No bull, either. Nov 19, Philip rated it it was amazing. This is a complete argument relating themes of nutrition, exercise, digestion and food to their associated consequence, weight. Unlike many works in the area of diet, The Smarter Science of Slim presents informed consideration of the subject, offers no quick fix, no formulaic or unsubstantiated, quasi-religious claims.
What the book does do is argue a coherent, rationally-constructed and In his book The Smarter Science of Slim Jonathan Bailor presents much more than advice on lifestyle and diet.
What the book does do is argue a coherent, rationally-constructed and evidence-justified position which identifies an approach to diet and lifestyle rather than a prescription. Jonathan Bailor begins with a criticism of current approaches, a corpus of advice that represents something of an establishment position. The consequences of this diet are obesity. Yes, we are being officially advised into a state of obesity. In contrast, the SANE approach allows you to eat just about as much as you want.
Does this sound too good to be true? To prove the case the author cites research findings and extensive data to identify a diet that is roughly equally shared between protein, carbohydrate and fat. On the face of it, this may not seem to be such a radical departure from the current received position, except in relation to fats.
But The Smarter Science of Slim approach differs markedly in the foodstuffs identified in each category.
Jonathan Bailor thus declares war on starch! Out go grains, flour, potatoes, rice and pasta, for example. In comes as much water-rich vegetable as you want to eat. He is also confident that eating more proteins will restrict the appetite that currently craves more starch because it is fat and protein deficient. The norm can change and can be changed, but the human body always tries to maintain what the brain perceives an optimal or normal weight.
The problem is that this norm is influenced by the digestive load that the diet presents. When this is changed, then the perceived norm can be changed. But The Smarter Science of Slim goes beyond this. And all of this can be accomplished in just twenty minutes a couple of times a week. But the ingredient list is extremely long and even five minutes in the kitchen would produce something palatable, tasty and also SANE, certainly something a tad more appetising than a veggie smoothie.
The Smarter Science of Slim allows, even encourages consumption of almost anything you want in the line of meat or fish. Since fats are not outlawed, you can even take a slab of cheese. But you will have to make your sandwich with cabbage leaves, rather than bread. Anyone who has feelings of guilt or even mere concerns about weight, diet or lifestyle could profit greatly from reading The Smarter Science of Slim.
The book illustrates that there is nothing to be afraid of, that there are multitudes of wholesome and tasty foods that can be eaten with abandon without fear of obesity or ill health. Nov 21, Grady rated it it was amazing. And Bailor is that. He has put in the research, the time, the testing, and the delicate charge of passing his concepts before the eyes of some authoritative health care providers in order to make this book and his program accessible to the layperson.
He has taken the time to investigate Finally! He has taken the time to investigate the big business of weight loss programs, diet pills, diet food programs, big business gym promises, and even beyond and in doing so he has uncovered the myths propagated to 'sell' weight loss programs of every description, replacing those big money making giants with the scientific facts about how the body processes foods, the need for understanding exercise, and the all important concept of this book, the Set Point for everyone who reads this book 'Set-Point Weight: The weight that our fat metabolism system automatically works to keep us at regardless the quantity of calories we take in or exercise off'.
Bailor's Smarter Science of Slim he summarizes in the following: The reason that reading Jonathan Bailor will change your life is the fact that he educates the reader with very complex theories that he is gifted in his writing to make very simple and understandable.
This book will stand the test of every nutritionist and physical therapist and physiologist in the material he discusses so thoroughly. Just the discussion of smart eating - foods that participate solidly in the set point - is worth the investment in this book.
It is thorough without being redundant and it takes into consideration the history of why humans have survived since appearing as a species on this planet. The same can be said about the section of the concept of exercise: And therein lies the main message: Jonathan Bailor's magnetic personality comes through on every page of this book.
Too many writers debunk other programs in a way that makes them sound like Mr. Know-it-all-and-everyone-else-is wrong.
Bailor doesn't go there. Instead he lets the reader learn to understand the physiology of maintaining a slim figure and by becoming smarter it is next to impossible to not stay on track: This is one of the finest books published at a time when the media is warning us about the obesity epidemic, scaring us into investing funds we don't have at the moment in an attempt to feel and look young and healthy again.
It is right here. Jonathan Bailor likely wouldn't regard himself as a guru he is far too honest and self deprecating to claim fame. But delve into this book and see if his work doesn't change YOUR outlook and reduce the stress that radical dieting and radical exercise programs produce - just when we don't need more stress!
Grady Harp Sep 10, Alain Burrese rated it really liked it. Jonathan Bailor is a Health and Fitness Researcher, and "The Smarter Science of Slim" is the result of ten years worth of research and collaboration with doctors and other researchers in the health and fitness areas. I think it is a very good addition to the health and fitness resources available, which are many, and recommend it to anyone wanting to increase their knowledge in this area.
Obviously, just reading the book won't do you much good if you don't apply some of the material contained wi Jonathan Bailor is a Health and Fitness Researcher, and "The Smarter Science of Slim" is the result of ten years worth of research and collaboration with doctors and other researchers in the health and fitness areas.
Obviously, just reading the book won't do you much good if you don't apply some of the material contained within the pages. Something I'm sure Bailor would also agree with I've been a long time student of Jim Rohn, and he always said read more than one book on health and fitness and find what works best for you. I agree with this, and it is probably why I read a number of works on this topic. I recommend others do the same, and "The Smarter Science of Slim" should be one of the books you read to gain knowledge in this area.
Bailor's Bibliography is around 77 pages long. So yes, he is a researcher. And no, I did not check these sources. However, what Bailor did very well is write a very readable book based on the research.
