Editorial Reviews

Review

“Heather helps you successfully identify and attack your diet devils—and helps you set a path for healthy eating!”
--Jennifer Maanavi, founder of Physique 57

“Heather’s advice on how to lose weight is right on the mark! You will not only lose weight but also have healthier, more radiant skin.”
--Doris Day, MD

"Heather Bauer is the only angel you need on your shoulder when facing the many everyday eating temptations. She has identified what plagues us most and simplified the solution into insightful, actionable and doable tactics. Amen!"
--Amanda Freeman, co-founder of Vital Juice

"If Bread is the Devil, then Heather Bauer is the Angel. Heather describes the “pitfalls’ we all face trying to maintain healthy lifestyles – emotional eating, carb & other food overeats, and stress eating – as “devils” that we need to recognize & conquer. As a mother of two sets of twins and a pediatrician/entrepreneur, I was blown away by Heather’s approach to the behavioral connections to healthy nutrition & balance. She’s the real deal!"
--Dr. Jen Canter (Dr. Jen®), Pediatrician

"Bread Is the Devil answers every question you have ever had about diet and nutrition. It's a life changer!”
--Cooper Lawrence, author of The Yoga Club and radio personality

From the Back Cover

Do you suffer from:

The Free-Style Devil? Do you “diet” without a plan, a set of recovery strategies, and a real achievable goal?

The Plunge? Do you slip from your diet and just keep on slipping?

The Late-Night Devil? Do you just have to check what’s in the fridge before you retire for the night?

Emotional Eating? Do your feelings trigger your eating habits?

Little Devils? Do you find yourself eating your little kids' leftovers?

Boredom Bingeing? Do you eat when you’re bored?

The Sloth? Do you prefer to sit on your couch rather than go to the gym?

The Celebrations, Vacations! Devils? Do your diet goals take a hike while you're at a party or on vacation?

Road Hogging? Are there temptations every step of the way to your destination?

The Dine Out Devil? Do you fill up on breadsticks and feel like you have to eat everything on your plate?

If you’ve experienced any of these Diet Devils, don’t worry—forgive yourself. And read this book.

Some of these Devils include "The Late Night Shuffle (for those midnight marauders that just can't stay out of the kitchen), "Road Hogging" (for travels who decide to put their healthy habits on hold when on the road) and "The Plunge" (for anyone that wonders where that whole sleeve of cookies went).

Heather is amazing!

Keep in mind that not every book can help everyone, so read a few different books on healthy eating and pick what works well for you.

I enjoy good food whereas I used to just consume it, whether I am eating out or cooking at home.

Heather Bauer's book is a must-have for anyone with wellness or weight loss goals! I've bought copies for everyone in my family. She so clearly and simply lays out what you should do to maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle. Love her categories...I relate to most of them, esp the "little devils." Her suggestions and tips are realistic and easy to follow. And she is so realistic BUT enables you to get results. I already have, thanks to Heather Bauer. We all need this book! It even makes you laugh because it's all so easy to relate to. Love it.

Bread Is the Devil: Win the Weight Loss Battle by Taking Control of Your Diet Demons

BREAD IS THE DEVIL is just like a private appointment with Heather Bauer.
I'm Lucky because I get to see Heather in person, and she has helped turn my life around. I lost 70 pounds in one year, and I've kept it off. It's not about counting calories or denying yourself your favorite foods or a relentless regiment or extreme anything. That never worked for me. I needed easy. It is about knowing your own Diet Devils and dealing with them. It is not about giving up on foods you like, but about knowing their impact and when you can afford to have them. It's not that you can never have bread. I only have it when it is part of something I really like, a Really Great Bacon Cheeseburger or Pizza, and I only need to do that a couple of times in a month. And chocolate. I'm a chocoholic, and I used to get chocolate through ice cream. Not worth it. I now enjoy sampling high quality, high cocoa content dark chocolate with some fresh fruit. A candy bar that would've lasted 4 seconds now lasts 4 days. And then there's FREE foods. I can count on FREE healthy foods (greens, fresh vegetables) to fill me up. My eating habits have been transformed for life. My taste buds have even improved. I enjoy good food whereas I used to just consume it, whether I am eating out or cooking at home.
What drove me to do this? Surprisingly (to me) it was not vanity. It was my health. I tested positive for diabetes and knew I had to do something to lose weight. With Heather's help, I did it. Diabetes gone.
Other Benefits: At 54, I'm able to wear some of the classic suits I bought when I was 30, and people notice!

Don't let the title fool you! Heather did not tell me that I have to ban bread or carbs from my diet in order to get healthy or lose weight - or I would not have finished this book! This is a refreshingly honest, super funny, and easy-to-read guide that will help anyone have more healthy eating patterns for life.

I've decided to cut bread and gluten out of my diet due to arthritis, but I picked up this book because of the title. I do feel that Bread is the Devil and it is a hard item to ignore. Everyone eats bread and loves to eat it warm fresh from the oven. Yummy with butter dripping off the sides, hungry already. I digress, and now I need to think about a healthy serving of fruits or vegetable instead.

Bread is the Devil is an interesting book that helps you cut the white bread, fried breads, and other empty calorie items from your diet. You can eat bread, but make sure it is whole grain, me I just cut it all out and after 3 months I feel great(my back/spine arthritis is better and my hip feels almost normal again.) But I think that cutting bread out would help many lose those unwanted pounds and help you become healthier overall. Cut those empty fat/calorie/carb filled items from your diet and feel good again. By the way, fat is your friend....sugar and white carbs are the enemy.

Cutting carbs is a great way to lose weight and it is really not that difficult. Have a goal in mind will make it easier to say NO to the Devil carbs out there. Losing weight or just cutting back on empty calories makes this book a good read for you. Keep in mind that not every book can help everyone, so read a few different books on healthy eating and pick what works well for you.

Finally - an instructive and fun guide for getting healthy and feeling great! Heather's explanation of Diet Devils and "taming" them is so logical and encouraging that for the first time in ages, I'm not thinking of waiting until after my vacation to get back on track. Why would I? This plan looks so great, I've already got my "out for dinner" orders all set.

Even as a devoted convert to Heather's methodology (she is, after all, the woman who years ago transformed me from a supposed veggie lover who only ate "devil carbs" - a classic "starch-a-tarian" - into a slimmer and fitter version of my old self), I downloaded her newest book and read it last night in a single sitting. I was delighted to find that after a holiday season filled with too much jolly, "Bread is the Devil" proved to be the perfect pick-me-up and a reminder that I can re-energize myself and slim down without sacrificing great food in the New Year!

Friends and family, be excited - you're all getting copies of this fantastic book.
