About Diana Artene

Diana Artene is a licensed physical therapist since 2003. After she graduated Medical University she extended her medical knowledge in sport nutrition, nutrition for weight loss and children nutrition as she became a nutritionist.
She advocates a healthy lifestyle in which all foods can be eaten and no long workouts are necessary to be fit and slim as long as we are fully informed.

Her brutally honest book "5 Gears Diet" provides all the information we ever needed to know about fat gain and fat loss, so we can get how these mechanisms work once and for all. Although she believes in free will and that our weight reflects the choices we've made, she clearly describes the limits of your responsibility and completely dismisses self blame.

Her books are easy to read and very visual practical guides. And even though her work is based on human physiology and biochemistry, she found a way to keep science simple. As Einstein once said, "If you cannot keep it simple, you haven't understood it well enough".

This is an awesome book. I’m trying so hard to get healthy and lose some weight. Nothing that I tried worked for me in the past, but this book makes sense and it makes it so much easier to achieve my goals. The author shows why dieting is not the way to go. Instead, she focuses on eating naturally and using common sense (eat when you’re hungry, don’t eat within a few hours of going to sleep, exercise for fun, etc). These are all things that seem so simple, but sometimes you need someone to set it all out for you. The author also talks about what your body does with various foods which really helps to hit the point home. Using this book as a guide, it’s finally possible to lose weight and actually enjoy life at the same time because you’re not living in deprivation. It puts me back in control. So thankful for this book.

Finally! A different take on diets. I was so sick of reading dieting books that suggest what and when I should eat, instead this bible of diet books, ‘5 Gears Diet’ examines this in detail, making it very clear. It nails home what a diet really is, even down to the psychology of it. I now look at my body differently and think about myself differently, to be honest, I feel like a new person. It is very well structured and scientifically based making you very aware of the machine that is your body. I’ve been lacking in motivation for a long time now and my best excuse for it is that I hadn’t read this book yet. Do yourself a favor and knock all those old dieting books of your shelf, because I promise this is the only one you will refer to from now on! Good luck!

Review by: A Prosper on Dec. 08, 2013 :
This is solid guidance and diet coaching that is direct and ultimately inspirational. The book focuses on getting a reader's mindset right for optimal health and weight loss, and it is well-organized around her concept that we can run our bodies and our diets like machines at different gear-levels of intensity if we want to burn fat or create fitness. I liked this concept, and at it's core it's empowering. The author provides the information and then challenges readers to select the gears they want to use to run their days. If you've been stuck in idle or in the slow lane for years like i have, this is the type of guidance that might help jumpstart a higher functioning diet based not on deprivation but on optimization through the behaviors and choices that lead to operating at a higher gear level more often. This is like intelligent coaching with a serious mission, so I'd recommend it if you feel you are ready for it.

“In 5 Gears Diet, Diana Artene cuts through all of the misinformation and deceptive messaging out there to expose one stark truth; there is magic that makes weight loss easy. Diana examines how we eat, what we eat and why we eat, combined with the sedentary lifestyle common today. Her simple 5-step process shows how we can change our own thinking and behaviour, leading to a happier and healthier life.” Mike Gagnon; Author-MikeGagnon.ca

I really love this book. I read this just the other day, and I couldn't put it down. I've been trying to become motivated to lose weight for a long time, and this really boosted my desire to accomplish it. I think for me, what was really helpful, it that Artene looked into WHY I'm fat and what the reasons could be behind it. This really helped me understand 1) that I need to change, and 2) how I can take steps today for a better me tomorrow. I didn't feel like I was being put down in this book, unlike in other books. They often make me feel bad about myself so i put them down and never get use from them... but this book was somehow different. I really appreciate all the work that went into this and I love that I could cultivate a lot of knowledge from this book. It really helped me a lot, and I suggest it to someone who likes to learn and wants to lose weight!

I was looking for a good diet book for quite some time now, and I was verry happy when I found '5 Gears Diet'. What I like about it is that there is no specific diet plan to follow, it simply teaches you how to eat healthy and how not to go back to your old habits. If you really want to take control of your life and you're sure that this time you want to follow through, this book is absolutely a Must Have!

I really like The 5 Gears diet book for many reasons.
First of all, it is definitely not an ordinary diet book with tons of different recipes that will help us quickly lose our weight.
Secondly, I like author’s theory about all the diets which only cause more and more obesity. There are more and more obese people and dieter in the world. But quick diets are not successful or healthy - at least not in the long term – we have to change our lifestyle and our thinking about eating habits. We have to free ourselves from the obsession of diets.
Another reason why I like this book is the fact that it motives us in a more psychological way to a different way of thinking about our eating habits. All facts are substantiated with detailed explanations of what is happening in our body after eating, what happens to metabolism, insulin, cholesterol, etc.

It really is more than just a diet book and I highly recommend it if you struggle with diets or overweight and want to change something about it!

The 5 Gears diet book is all about taking responsibility and ending the obsessive madness over dieting. There are no specific foods to choose from, only just eating healthy, natural foods. If you are tired of playing games with your health, and if you can take a few slaps in the face by the hard truth, then 5 Gears will change your life.

This book has some heavy reading. I expected to see a list of references at the end of this book, but I guess we just take Diana Artene's word for it. There were lots of requirements that I have heard before (sleep enough, exercise, etc) and there were some recommendations that I never heard before(limit to one cup of coffee a day, never eat food you dislike)and there were a few recommendations that I don't know if I agree with without more research. Overall, this felt like a self-help book intended to pump you up.*Saturday Night Live reference :-)
It was an interesting read, but I don't think it is worth owning.
