  • We do not have any proof that the dieting and weight loss methods that the author proposes in the Dieting for Dummies book are superior or more effective than those in other diet books.
  • There do not appear to have been any controlled trials relating to those who have followed the methods in the book.
  • The Dieting for Dummies book is more suitable for those who want simple guidance regarding weight loss and healthy eating than for those who want to go deeper into the reasons for their weight gain.
  • Obviously, this book offers no metabolic stimulants or appetite suppressants, and those who have had trouble dieting in the past could encounter the same issues.


The market is flooded with diet books. The fact that this book is on its second edition means that there must have been healthy sales of the first edition. However, we simply do not have any evidence that the diet and healthy eating methods in this book are superior to those given in other diet books. If dieting has not worked out for you in the past, you may want to try a potent diet supplement as your next form of attack.
