About David Zinczenko
DAVID ZINCZENKO is internationally recognized as the leading voice in health, fitness, nutrition and weight loss and is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of 25 books in 15 languages, with more than 10 million books in print. Dave created the Eat This, Not That! series and the Zero Belly Diet franchise, as well as The Abs Diet series and the 8-Hour Diet. He is also the Editorial Director of Men's Fitness and the Nutrition and Wellness Correspondent for ABC News, and has appeared on Oprah, Good Morning America, 20/20, The Rachael Ray Show, the Ellen DeGeneres Show, and was a frequent guest on The Today Show.
His books have changed the way the world eats—and have helped millions of men and women lose weight, sometimes up to 70 pounds or more.
Starting in a 2002 op-ed in the New York Times and later in 2007 with the Eat This, Not That! series of books, Zinczenko called for food manufacturers "to provide what every diner in America deserves: full disclosure" and led to calorie counts on menus and healthier formulations of products from Jamba Juice, Carl's Jr. and many more. The blockbuster series—with its pop culture attitude, shocking food swaps and proven "no-diet" weight loss strategies—continues to top the charts, with titles devoted to restaurant menu survival, supermarket shopping guides, healthy pregnancies and rapid weight loss.
Oprah called Eat This, Not That! "a great guide everyone should get" and Ellen DeGeneres said "Eat This, Not That! will freak the weight right off of you!"
His diet books have been equally acclaimed. The Abs Diet series was ranked as one of the best commercial diet plans by U.S, News and World Report. The 8-Hour Diet (published in 2012) led the trend of intermittent fasting.
His latest franchise—Zero Belly Diet—has spawned two more bestsellers, Zero Belly Cookbook and Zero Belly Smoothies, and have helped thousands lose weight and look, feel and live better than ever. Dave's next book, The Sugar Swap Diet, will show you how giving up added sugars will melt fat and guarantee your happiest and healthiest life.
Formerly the Editorial Director of Men's Health, Women's Health and Prevention, and the General Manager of Rodale Books, Zinczenko is also the Founder and CEO of Galvanized Media, a company helping define the new era of healthy living. He grew up in Bethlehem, PA, where he's in the Hall of Fame, and attended Moravian College, home of The Zinczenko Center for New Media.

Zero Belly Diet is the revolutionary new plan to turn off your fat genes and help keep you lean for life! Nutrition expert David Zinczenko—the New York Times bestselling author of the Abs Diet series, Eat This, Not That! series, and Eat It to Beat It!—has spent his entire career learning about belly fat—where it comes from and what it does to us. And what he knows is this: There is no greater threat to you and your family—to your health, your happiness, even your financial future.
Yes, you can: Change your destiny. Overcome your fat genes. Strip away belly fat and finally attain the lean, strong, healthy body you’ve always wanted.
With Zero Belly Diet, David Zinczenko reveals explosive new research that explains the mystery of why some of us stay thin, and why some can’t lose weight no matter how hard we try. He explains how some foods turn our fat genes on—causing seemingly irreversible weight gain—and uncovers the nine essential power foods that act directly on those switches, turning them to “off” and allowing for easy, rapid, and sustainable weight loss. And he shows how these foods help heal your digestive system, keeping those gene switches turned off and setting you up for a lifetime of leanness.
Other diets can help you lose weight, but only the Zero Belly diet attacks fat on a genetic level, placing a bull’s-eye on the fat cells that matter most: visceral fat, the type of fat ensconced in your belly. These fat cells act like an invading army, increasing inflammation and putting you at risk for diabetes, Alzheimer’s, arthritis, heart disease, and cancer. Visceral fat can also can alter your hormone levels, erode muscle tissue, increase your chances of depression, and destroy your sex drive. But you can turn the odds in your favor.
Zero Belly Diet shows you how to deactivate your fat genes, rev up your metabolism, banish bloat, and balance your digestive health, allowing you to easily build lean, strong stomach muscle and strip away unwanted belly fat without sacrificing calories or spending hours at the gym. The result: weight loss that is easier, faster, more lasting, and more delicious than you’d ever imagine.
You’ll be stunned and inspired by the results of an amazing 500-person test panel—men and women who lost weight quickly, and with ease, following the Zero Belly diet. In just the first 14 days:
Bob McMicken, 51, lost 16.3 pounds
Kyle Cambridge, 28, lost 15 pounds
Martha Chesler, 54, lost 11 pounds
Matt Brunner, 43, lost 14 pounds
Zero Belly Diet features a week-by-week menu plan, fifty tasty recipes, and a handy shopping list that leads to a minimum of cooking and plenty of feasting.
Best of all, Zero Belly Diet offers something more: freedom. Freedom from bloating, freedom from food deprivation, freedom from weight loss fads, freedom from stress. So say goodbye to your paunch and hello to a happier, healthier you!
After conducting extensive research at the Salk Institute and the National Institute on Aging, poring over copious amounts of new research in intermittent fasting, and engaging 2,000 people for a test panel, bestselling authors David Zinczenko and Peter Moore determined that people can lose remarkable amounts of weight eating the foods they like best—as long as they eat within a set 8-hour time period. Fasting is, of course, an ancient spiritual and health practice, but it's also a way to sidestep many of the ills of the modern world—including diabetes, heart disease, and cognitive impairment.
Zinczenko and Moore demonstrate how simply observing this timed-eating strategy, even just three days a week, will reset your metabolism so that you can enter fat-burning mode first thing in the morning—and stay there all day long. And by focusing on eight critical, nutrient-rich Powerfoods, you can build in a second layer of protection against Alzheimer's, heart disease, and even the common cold.
In the book, you will find motivating strategies, delicious recipes, and an 8-minute workout routine to maximize calorie burn. The 8-Hour Diet promises to strip away unwanted pounds and give you the focus and willpower you need to reach your goals for weight loss and life.
With Zero Sugar Diet, #1 New York Times bestselling author David Zinczenko continues his twenty-year mission to help Americans live their happiest and healthiest lives, uncovering revolutionary new research that explains why you can’t lose weight—and shows that it’s not your fault! The true culprit is sugar—specifically added sugars—which food manufacturers sneak into almost everything we eat, from bread to cold cuts to yogurt, peanut butter, pizza, and even “health” foods.
Until now, there’s been no way to tell how much added sugar you’re eating—or how to avoid it without sacrifice. But with the simple steps in Zero Sugar Diet, you’ll be able to eat all your favorite foods and strip away unnecessary sugars—losing weight at a rate of up to one pound per day, while still enjoying the sweeter things in life.
By replacing empty calories with essential ones—swapping in whole foods and fiber and swapping out added sugars—you’ll conquer your cravings and prevent the blood sugar surge that leads to some of the worst health scourges in America today, including abdominal fat, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, liver disease, fatigue, and tooth decay.
And all it takes is 14 days. You’ll be stunned by the reported results:
Lisa Gardner, 49, lost 10 pounds
Tara Anderson, 42, lost 10 pounds
David Menkhaus, 62, lost 15 pounds
Ricky Casados, 56, lost 12 pounds
You, too, can melt away belly fat, boost your energy levels and metabolism, and take control of your health and your life, armed with a comprehensive grocery list of fresh produce, proteins, whole grains, and even prepared meals, accompanied by two weeks’ worth of fiber-rich breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack recipes and real-life results from successful Zero Sugar dieters.

"O mundo se torna menos complicado com um livro de Malcolm Gladwell na mão." – The New York Times
Há três mil anos, num campo de batalha na antiga Palestina, um jovem pastor derrubou um poderoso guerreiro com apenas uma pedra e uma funda, e desde então os nomes Davi e Golias simbolizaram as batalhas entre os mais fracos e os gigantes.
A vitória de Davi foi improvável e milagrosa. Ele não deveria ter ganhado. Ou deveria?
Em Davi e Golias, Malcolm Gladwell desafia nossas crenças sobre obstáculos e desvantagens, oferecendo uma interpretação nova do que significa ser discriminado, enfrentar uma deficiência, perder pai ou mãe, frequentar uma faculdade medíocre ou sofrer uma série de outros aparentes reveses.
Gladwell começa pela história real do que ocorreu entre o gigante e o jovem pastor tantos anos atrás e prova como, de fato, era Davi o grande favorito. Em seguida, com sua habilidade característica para contar boas histórias e envolver o leitor, ele narra importantes acontecimentos na vida de anônimos e famosos, introduzindo conceitos que nos levam a ver o favoritismo com outros olhos.
O autor examina o conflito religioso na Irlanda do Norte, a reação dos londrinos aos bombardeios alemães na Segunda Guerra, a mente de pesquisadores do câncer e líderes negros dos direitos civis, os assassinatos e o alto custo da vingança, e a dinâmica das salas de aula que obtêm bons e maus resultados – tudo isso com o intuito de demonstrar que muita coisa bela e importante no mundo surge do que pode ser visto inicialmente como sofrimento e adversidade.
Na tradição dos sucessos anteriores de Gladwell, Davi e Golias lança mão da história, da psicologia e de uma narrativa poderosa para abalar e reformular nosso pensamento sobre o mundo à nossa volta.
