Hundreds of diet books have been written on the subject of weight loss. Perhaps you thought that this was one of them? No, Sir! This is NOT a diet book. In fact, this book defies all the diets of the world. This book is an entertaining literary journey into the unexplored world of “what am I?” The reader is introduced to amazing tools within us. As if by the power of magic, these tools turn complex things into simple and make the impossible possible. You are invited to have fun on this journey, surrounded by the cartoon characters. The book is followed by a companion Phone App called ‘Diet Slave No More!’, which is separately available on iPhone and Android platforms.

5 Star Review from Ruffina Oserio of Readers’Favorite Book Reviews:
In Diet Slave No More!: A Fun Literary Journey Into Your Self, Svetlana Kogan, M.D. offers readers a brand new approach to healthy living and to handling weight issues. Is there a formula for weight loss and health that works for everyone? This is the question that many diet books do not answer, but one which finds a central place in this book.
The author doesn’t offer a one-size-fits-all path towards weight loss, but instead guides readers to identifying their innate tools and how to use them to achieve the results they want. This book will enable readers to understand who they are and to create their own path towards their ideal weight. The title may make readers think that this book is centered on dieting, but it debunks the myths about dieting and points readers to the spiritual path that can lead them to their weight loss goals.
Svetlana Kogan, M.D. comes across as an expert in health and fitness, but there is a spiritual aspect that gives life to the entire message of this easy-to-read and eye-opening book. Diet Slave No More! is well-written in a style that is accessible and will be enjoyed by a wide audience. The author uses a combination of personal, interesting, and entertaining stories with scientific knowledge to deliver a message that readers seeking answers to weight issues will find timely and very appropriate.
This is one of the books in the area of dieting and weight loss that will appeal to a wider audience because of its non-pretentiousness in providing a magic weight loss formula, and also because it encourages readers to find their own path. I won’t hesitate to recommend this book to anyone seeking to improve their health by taking control of their weight. Insightful, inspiring, and informative.
A review by Diane Donovan of The Midwestern Book Review:
Diet Slave No More!: A Fun Literary Journey into Your Self is an unexpected journey in that it’s not another book on “how to diet”. Instead, its holistic approach combines the medical traditions of East and West as it considers the fact that typical dieting strategies just don’t work, and it reviews a new idea that offers better balance and insights.
Where most diet books advocate a singular program that can be followed by all, Diet Slave No More maintains that in order to achieve lasting results, diet efforts must be customized and tailored to and by the individual dieter.
This is further emphasized by the fact that ninety-seven percent of those who lost weight gained all of it back within a few years, neatly demonstrating that artificial weight loss efforts not backed by deeply life-changing strategies are likely only temporary achievements.
One of the purposes of Diet Slave No More is to provide medical insights into weight gain and loss and what occurs on a metabolic and physical level when one’s diet changes. Discussions move to a cellular level as they probe how food is digested and absorbed into the system.
A touch of metaphysical insight adds to Dr. Kogan’s approach, as well: “By coming to understand that your Cells are highly intelligent by design, you are not committing to any religion or a cult. You are simply coming to terms with why you were born perfect and why you are such a mess today. And what’s more: you are learning to tap into your birthright—your cellular integrity, to recreate your perfection.”
Specifics of emotional ties to food are revealed (“Just like a positive emotion, like hearing your beloved calling you with a cup of coffee, can strengthen your positive perception of an object, in this case coffee, the negative emotion will cause predictable results. Even if only one of the five senses is suddenly conveying an unpleasant emotion, the overall perception of an object will be affected dramatically. A cup of coffee offered by someone you resent will make this beverage tough to swallow. So, emotions are always there, accompanying our five senses, feeding into them, and getting nourished by them.”), backed by the latest research, the author’s case history examples, and discussions of how perception and taste play a part in food choices.
Part of the book promotes an accompanying app of the same name – Diet Slave No More! – as part of a plan to link outside world experiences with reinforcements for habit change, which can be as basic as eating healthy at home before an event or outing to adopting a slower pace of life and an organic, non-GMO-based diet.
The result advocates not one approach, but a series of psychological, physical, and spiritual insights into the mechanics of eating, diets, and decision-making and choices that will help readers realize and define a better path for overall health. Serial dieters will be surprised and delighted with a book that doesn’t advocate yet another regimen, and which blends science with anecdotes and examples from real-life situations.
