Summer is the Season for Shaping Up:
American Dietetic Association Spokespeople
Review the Latest Diet and Lifestyle Books

CHICAGO – With seemingly endless information about food and diets available today, it is easy to be overwhelmed with which plan is right for you. Whether it’s a pill, a cleanse, a fast-results diet or an entire lifestyle change, there is no shortage of products, programs and books that promise life-changing results when it comes to weight loss.

Do these plans work? Are they healthful? How can people tell the good advice from the bad? The American Dietetic Association is here to help.

“Every day, Americans are flooded with information about how to lose weight and feel great fast. While some of these products and programs offer sound nutrition information, others are gimmicks and can even be dangerous,” says registered dietitian and ADA Spokesperson Marjorie Nolan. “It is important for consumers to achieve a healthy weight in a way that is safe and provides their bodies with the nutrition they need to thrive. There is no miracle cure or overnight plan for healthy weight loss.”

To help consumers separate diet fads from healthy, science-based options, registered dietitians who are media spokespeople of the American Dietetic Association have reviewed 15 of the latest diet and lifestyle books. To read the reviews, visit

“While many diet books have sound nutritional information and can serve as a basis for healthy weight loss, no book can offer the individualized counseling, meal planning and science-based nutrition expertise of a registered dietitian,” says Nolan, who is also one of the contributing reviewers. “RDs have the knowledge and expertise to help everyone achieve and maintain a healthy weight that ultimately leads to a healthy life.”

The latest titles reviewed by registered dietitians from ADA include:
The American Dietetic Association is the world’s largest organization of food and nutrition professionals. ADA is committed to improving the nation’s health and advancing the profession of dietetics through research, education and advocacy. Visit the American Dietetic Association at
