I've seen Pamela Peeke interviewed on many shows over the years and she consistantly seems to make sense to me. She's very knowledgable and in another book of hers that I've read, she makes her subject matters very easy to understand and relate to.

The main theme inside this new book is the way our 'toxic' lifestyles can make us fat and how we can make some changes in order to be fit and healthy. She starts out by saying how she's there to save your life if you let her. She poses the question (one that made me really think) "If you had to suddenly leave your comfort zone and run for your life, hoist your body out of a broken elevator, run after a child headed toward a busy street, or grab a tree limb to stop from falling, could you do it? Are you Fit to Live?" Your answer will either shock you to your core or make you proud. Not many might be able to answer yes. She talks about toxic belly fat (this is very scary).

This fascinating book is a bit of a twist on weight loss and fat reduction books. It's well written and thought provoking and will almost surely change your outlook on your life as a whole - no matter what area (financial included). I found it really interesting and she offers great advice. I highly recommend this.

I read Dr. Peeke's new book in one sitting, and it's just as great as "Body for Life for Women," with a whole bunch of new meaty (and nutritional!) insight. She gets it; this book is the ultimate instruction manual for a good healthy lifestyle. It's about transformation and progress, not perfection. I'm one of Dr. Peeke's fans, and a patient, and I am in the midst of my own "Fit to Live" revolution; and this book is almost as good as a personal session with Dr. Peeke in the flesh. She is really as funny, honest, encouraging, visionary, and dedicated to making people's lives happier and healthier in print as she is in person. This book IS her, and her common sense and compassion are in every page. Dr. Peeke says that when you're ready for change, real transforming change, you need to own the process. In my opinion, you also need to own this book.

This is the best way I have found to keep up motivation. I'll listen to Dr. Peeke while walking and she is so inspiring that my resolve to lose weight and stay fit is constantly renewed.

I watch the Discovery Health channel. This year's National Body Challenge featured Dr. Peeke as its primary doctor. Although I like her, I was a bit skeptical of Dr. Peeke's book. After reading some excerpts from it I decided to give it a try. It was a great read- I felt like I was getting a tailored plan for life. However, the plan is not too strick. She suggests small changes in lifestyle that give you drastic results in the long run. I also see many obstacles alot clearer now. I LOVE THIS BOOK!

This book is a straight-forward, easy to read guide to helping yourself create a well-balanced life. While you may want to pick it up for weight loss, that is just one of the benefits of this book. There are lots of self-evaluations and journal work you can do. Also worksheets in the back to photocopy and use. I was most impressed that the author included suggestions for vegetarians! The one thing that was a bit annoying was that the majority of the tone of the book was aimed towards married people with kids. For example, a question in the self-evaluation will say something like: "You return home from work to a three-alarm emergency and your kids won't leave you alone. What do you do?" Well, if the answer is I live alone and that doesn't happen, it skews your results. I would still rate it highly and this was only a small inconvenience amid the good ideas and helpful advice.

My family has always struggled with weight and stress. Often when I was a child, my mom would say, "I just ain't fit to live." Usually this was said when she was worn out or not feeling well, but it is an expression that had taken deep root as many times I also felt that I wasn't fit to live. That is what made me actually buy the book. One day as I was browsing the book store, this book almost jumped off the shelves into my hands by the title alone. I wasn't even sure what the book was suppose to really be about, but I knew I had to read it.

I wasn't disappointed! This book is real. I have been on just about every diet and life plan imagineable, and many being monitored by doctors. Usually, my doctors would reach a point where they would shrug and say that my metabolism was one step above a dead person. My last doctor even stated that I should try to live as well as I could because I would never lose weight. Talk about defeat!

Yet, when reading Dr. Peeke's book, a lightbulb went off. She called me on the carpet. It was as if she knew me. Toxic stress? You bet! Dissassociation? My favorite reaction to toxic stress. House organization? Chaos! Financial situation? Barely making it! Emotional and mental health? Not good after years of a messy marriage followed by a horrible divorce.

I have been trying to digest her book completely for a year. I still haven't gotten through all of it because each chapter has really touched me and brought me into a mediative state that has me working through many obstacles that have made up my life. I am a work in process, but everyday, I am getting mentally stronger. Weight wise, just knowing her information without really even hitting the problem yet, I have lost 41 pounds.
