This blog, my email and our phone lines in Chicago have been busy with many viewers asking, “What did Jim Think About The Other Diet Strategies On The View?”
Well, I have to be honest. I was pretty shocked, in a nutshell, they promoted:
NOT counting calories, when we know that the American Dietetic Association says whenever a weight loss book tells you to stop counting calories, RUN!
Eat fries, bacon, butter and whole milk
You can cleanse yourself thin
I have to say, I strongly disagree, and the research agrees, with all these theories. I realize that book sales increase with provocative promises (come on, I know that from having written “The Cardio-Free Diet”), but that book was totally based on research.
And I was SHOCKED to hear no one promote strength training and we know that your metabolism will plummet when you diet without it.
So, interesting show and I am sure the debate will go on as we enter the New Year.
Let me know your thoughts and I hope you are all exercising and watching your eating.
