You on a diet it good. I got it on cd. I will say "The thin commandments" on cd It might be in your local Lib. Has nothing to do with religion. One of the biggest things I learned is that it may work for you but it doesn't work for me. if you want to know how food goes through the body start to finish this isn't the book but if you want to learn how to handle walking into a pizza joint without blowing all your hard work take a look. I was laughing when he was talking about things that we do.

I like Bill Phillip's Body for Life. While I doubt some of the before and after photos are truly a 12 week transformation, I felt like he does a pretty good job of explaining why our bodies need more protein and why weight training is so beneficial. A lot of people feel like he pushes his supplements too much though.

Out of curiosity I read the original Beverly Hills diet from the 80's. Don't read it. It's full of s--t and sometimes completely offensive (eat like a human being not like a fat person. WTF? since when were overweight people not people??)

You On A Diet is fabulous. The Idiots Guide to Total Nutrition also great. Cooking Thin. Think Thin Feel Thin. I read constantly and could go on and on.

I haven't read it all, but it has done me some good with my emotional eating. Explains why we crave what we do when we do sometimes. It is called Life is Hard, Food is Easy by Spangle.

Yea its the same guy as the smoking one. I gave up smoking with him too, then I learned a lot about food compuslisons in the weight loss book. Its well worth a read, but you need to have an open mind because his idea's seem way out there at first, but if you keep the open mind you'll be convinced by the end!

Thanks for all the replies so far! I appreciate them and I am sure they will help others too.

Niamhcas, The Allen Carr book sounds interesting. I think he wrote a quit smoking book too and that has high reviews so a weightloss book by him is worth looking into. Not sure if it is the same author but the name is identical. And Skinny B...that is on my list.

Merry Pink, The ebook is a good idea too, I hadn't thought of that. I will check out your page and the website after posting.

Lynn, my life revolves around food right now too. I use to be a chain smoker and am now a "chain eater"! I need to break that habit. You sound just like me, we need to end this way of eating.

I will let you all know if I find any interesting books when I go shopping tomorrow.

Thanks again for replying!

i will always recommend "Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle". It's not a diet, more of a life manual, I love it!
It's an e-book, well worth the money. Look at my page or check out the BFFM team if you want more details.

OM skinny bit*** was to darn funny. I had the book on cd. I rented it from my book on cd rent website. The thin commandments on cd was also really good. I need on that is called your fat butt doesn't need seconds, thirds or to lick the pot. What is a serving of watermelon. I'm voting 1.
I need to get rid of the idea that just a little bit more would really hit the spot besides it is healthy and good for you. I wrote a book and am teaching a class and one of my hardest things is what is a serving and the thought that you will eat again. You don't have to eat it all no matter what it is. Put it in the fridge and not your gut. These are all my hard things. That weight watchers slice thing. But it is only broc. cal salad. (you know the one with the cheese and bacon and red onions. I have learned to take it eat it and enjoy it on top of a big bowl of salad greens and call it a meal and that's it. I am working on tracking what I do during the day. and 1 plate of food is a meal. So I have a salad and call it lunch and I am done with that meal If I have a second salad it is another meal. so I track in my mind or should I do it on paper. Get up do some stuff eat. go to work do some stuff and at 10:00 I tell myself it is not time to eat do some more work. If I had a snack I would have to call it eat. If at the end of the day I look at the list and see that I got nothing done and saw that I had 3 meals and 3 snacks and spend the rest of the time making these snacks then at the end of the day I would have made food, ate, made food, ate, talked on phone, made food, ate I really am trying to focus on getting things done and not have my life revolve around food. This is a really hard thing for me. Let us know if you find anything interesting. Thanks Lynn

I like Allen Carr's 'Easy Weigh to Loose Weight' which started me on my weight loss journey when i was around 150 lbs. Also liked 'Skinny B*tches', funny, frank and to the point!

Tell me if you find something because I am at about the same spot you are and I am looking into the jillian michaels. Let me C & P a weekly food plan is that I found on the net
Jillian and Bob both have a week plan. I have to find it again. Wjen I looked at it there were very few carbs. It was like roast chicken on salad and your done eatting for that meal. Bob had 1 slice of turkey wrapped around 1oz of cheese and that was your snack. On where did I see rice of any kind noodles, 100 cal. packs. I better look so you can see what I am talking about. I thought about checking out her website for 30 days.

Hi, Just wondering if there are any books that have helped you with cravings, staying on plan, eating healthy etc...I am going shopping tomorrow where there is a Barnes and Noble and I want to pick up a few books that will help me stay focused. Any magazines that are more helpful too.
Thanks for any replies!
