Amazon.com Review

Anne Fletcher is a registered dietician who studied 208 "masters" who succeeded in losing an average of 64 pounds and keeping the weight off. She revealed their keys to success in Thin for Life. In Eating Thin for Life, Fletcher explores the eating habits and recipes of these weight-control successes. They share how they ate when they were heavy, how they motivated themselves to change, what eating plans helped them lose weight, and how they continue to keep their weight low. The masters share the strategies that help them stick to healthy, slimming eating choices--and enjoy the foods they choose. The book is particularly remarkable because there isn't some celebrity or expert telling you what to eat: The people who have accomplished their goals in diverse ways describe how they did it, with Fletcher filling in nutritional information to supplement the masters' points.

Eating Thin for Life is divided into food secrets (such as how to control binge eating and how to eat in restaurants), menu plans (with calorie and fat analysis), and 122 favorite recipes (with nutritional breakdowns). Quotes and stories from the masters make you feel that if they could do it, so can you. --Joan Price --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From Publishers Weekly

Following up on her bestselling Thin for Life (1994), Fletcher records and organizes the experiences of 200 men and women who have successfully maintained over a number of years a significant weight loss (an average of 64 pounds). Fletcher calls her subjects, who have kept off 20 or more pounds for more than 10 years, masters. In Part I, she catalogues the strategies they have used to hold on to their weight loss, offering five main "food secrets," e.g., "Want to be Thin More Than You Want to Eat the 'Wrong' Foods"; "Fix Your Full Button." Each tip is fleshed out with stories from "the masters" demonstrating how it has helped them. The second section offers 21 days of menus for low-fat, reduced calorie dishes for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert, as well as snacks. Part III offers 100 recipes (with food counts) from the masters for recipes that have become mainstays on their tables. Included are recipes for Meatballs with Parsley and Sage, mixing ground round steak with grated potatoes; Crepes with Chicken and Mushroom Filling; Sweet Potato Puff, with bananas; Deep Dish Pumpkin Pie, with a graham-cracker crust. The accompanying list, "Tricks of the Low-Fat Cooking Trade," is particularly helpful. As both inspiration and practical guide, this volume is likely to prove a great ally to readers who know that keeping off the pounds they lose is the larger part of a weight loss campaign.

As a person who loved "Thin For Life", the minute I saw "Eating Thin For Life" I bought it without hestitation. Once again, Anne Fletcher brings us tips, techniques and now lots of recipes from REAL people who have lost the weight and kept it off. I lost 60 pounds when I read "Thin For Life" and since then 20 pounds have crept back on. This book is just the motivation I needed to get back on track to my goal of one day becoming a "master" of my weight.

This is a good book to read if you are trying to maintain or keep weight off. It doesn't tell you anything about losing weight that you don't already know such as eating healthy and exercising, but there are some fantastic ideas, and easy lowfat recipes to help you begin to change your bad eating habits, and ultimately lose weight.

I hate the idea that being thin is healthy. Just because you are thin doesn't mean you are healthy. That said I wanted to say that I really enjoyed this book! I read it in two days, it usually takes me a month or so to read diet books. Diet books are so boring! This isn't really a diet book but a motivating to be healthy book!
The ideas behind the book are so simple, to lose weight and to maintain that weight. There are tips in here that seem so obvious but we tend to forget, we beat ourselves up and then start the process all over again.

This is the first diet book I have read that I really feel I can do it. It teaches you a new way of eating that is healthy, but good and the same time. This is something I plan on continuing the rest of my life. She explained everything wonderfully. I would recommend this book to anyone who is having trouble losing weight. I have accually bought the book for friends who wanted help with weight. She also provides tons of quick and easy recipes you will love. This will be the last diet book you ever buy!

This book is a great sequel to Anne Fletcher's previous book, Thin for Life on eating healthy and losing weight. While I recommend reading Thin for Life first for a lot of great tips on motivation and long-term strategies, Eating Thin for Life has inspiring stories from people who lost weight and a number of strategies as well.

The best aspects of this book are its recipes. It has a short section with suggestions of quick, balanced meals and snacks of set calorie value that you can put together with little to no cooking. Additionally, it has a longer section containing tons of recipes of all kinds - salads, main dishes, breakfasts, quick breads, desserts, etc. The recipes are surprisingly delicious and satisfying for how healthy they are, and I've already learned new cooking techniques for creating healthier recipes of my own. This book has helped me make a permanent switch to a better lifestyle and lose weight in the process!
