Using this book is like having a personal coach working with you on emotional and behavioral changes as well as diet and exercise. Greene realizes that if you've had trouble losing weight, you need to understand your attitudes and obstacles before any diet or exercise program will work. So phase one of the program is a self-examination regarding changing your life, including written exercises to help you understand your emotions. Phase two adds aerobic exercise, without changing your diet, to rev up your metabolism. Phase three focuses on the emotional connection to eating habits, including identifying emotional eating triggers and working to overcome them. Phase four adds strength training and dietary changes.
Get with the Program is conveniently spiral-bound, so it's easy to fill in the written exercises and view instructions and photos of the physical exercises. Its highly recommended for people who have had trouble losing weight and are serious about getting in shape--physically and emotionally. --Joan Price --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
Buy it, though, not because of a New Year's resolution, but because you want to lose weight.
Easy to read, solid good advice and the fact that it worked for Oprah makes Bob Greene's book a great first stop for wanting to learn about healthy eating and living.
This book closely matches with my personal philosophy of making incremental changes in my life that I can live with.
Motivational, educational, makes you think about what/when you eat. Bob is disciplined and expects you to be too!
Easier said then done, LOL!
I was ready to be critical but quickly won over by Greene's philosophy on habits to get more energy. For me it's not a matter of weight loss and it didn't matter. Read morePublished on December 17, 2011 by Citizen John
