Lose weight, get in shape, understand your emotions, and feel good about yourself. These are the interrelated goals of Get with the Program by Bob Greene, best known as Oprah's personal trainer and coauthor of Make the Connection.
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.
Adult/High School-Greene's offers exercise regimens, photographs, and useful training tips for beginners or experts, and concentrates on how readers can reach their physical and mental potential. The plan is divided into four phases, and there is a section on journal keeping. The author explains how to set up a good exercise-and-conditioning program, how to increase metabolism, and how to improve one's appearance with a little mental preparation. Throughout, he emphasizes the importance of attitude, eating high-quality food, understanding the connection between food and emotions, and drinking lots of water. Readers who follow his advice could learn to "live the best life possible," and become hooked on feeling good, looking good, and being good to themselves.

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 Afia
We live in a culture of sedentary lifestyle and Americans have lost touch with appropriate portion sizes of food. Consumerism has become the new religion. Read morePublished on January 28, 2011 by Bob Weinstein, Lt. Colonel, US Army, Ret.

I NEED to set time aside to do this.
