The Hacker’s Diet – How to lose weight and hair through stress and poor nutrition By John Walker.
The Hacker’s Diet, notwithstanding its silly subtitle, is a serious book about how to lose weight and permanently maintain whatever weight you desire. It treats dieting and weight control from an engineering and management standpoint, and provides the tools and an understanding of why they work and how to use them that permit the reader to gain control of their own weight. The book is intended primarily for busy, successful engineers, programmers, and managers who have struggled unsuccessfully in the past to lose weight and avoid re-gaining it. Computer-based tools and experiments in Microsoft Excel or the Palm Computing Platform are available, but a computer is not necessary to use the techniques described in the book; paper and pencil alternatives are provided.
Maybe one day I will be interested in reading this book. Until then, I’ll save it in my blog bookmarks. :)
