There are lots of ways to lose weight. Any of them -- counting calories, counting grams of this or that, avoiding entire categories of food ... -- can work for a while. We now have pretty good evidence that, over time, they're all equally effective. Which is to say, not very effective at all for helping you lose a substantial amount of weight and keep it off.

Georgie Fear rejects that focus on food management, and turns instead to behavior management. She explains why in this passage:

"I have never met a single person who liked counting calories. All the people I know (including myself) did it with a sense of anxiety, distrust of their own bodies and fear. It becomes a daily battle against the numbers, in which you lose all sight of feeling hunger, fullness and enjoyment of eating. … While it can feel like keeping track of calories is helpful, and it often gives a comforting (false) sense of control, it prevents tuning in to your own body’s signals, which you need to be able to do if you are going to eat for yourself."

My only criticism of Lean Habits is that I wish this statement, which appears in the "troubleshooting" section toward the end, had been made earlier. The success of the program depends on your ability to feel your body's hunger and satiety mechanisms. The pounds you want to lose won't give up without a fight, and Georgie's goal is to turn you into a fighter. That's why her first step, Lean Habit 1, is to restrict yourself to 3 or 4 meals a day, with no snacking. If that's easy and painless, you probably don't need a diet book.

The habits that would make this initial step easier to implement -- focusing on whole foods, minimizing liquid calories, eating more protein -- come later in the program.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This isn't your typical weight loss book. Chandra Crawford starts out telling us about her powerful current of negative emotion that caused bulimia for a year and destroyed her body's ability to perform as a ski racer. Georgie Fear, her Coach, informed her that if eating behaviors were in response to emotion, that attempting to solve them with an emotional response wouldn't work either. Georgie then guided her back to health with easy to understand psychology and physiology as well as great anecdotes from her decades of coaching and nutritional experience. As they say, the rest is history for Ms. Crawford, Olympic Ski champion.

This author's approach is different from most diet books I have read and I find it refreshing that I will be changing one habit at a time until it becomes my new habit in approximately 14 days, but if more time is needed you provide it for yourself. The first four habits are the core habits which REALLY must become an honest and true habit. Then the remaining twelve habits are the supporting habits for a total of sixteen and troubleshooting I numbered seventeen, although it can be used anytime. Keep in mind the titles are fully explained in the chapters as you proceed after each habit truly becomes your habit.

1. Eat 3 or 4 meals per day without snacking.
2. Master your hunger.
3. Eating just enough.
4. Eat mostly whole foods.
5. Eat lots of vegetables.
6. Minimize liquid calories.
7. Boost satiety with protein.
8. Eat the right amount of fat.
9. Meet your carbohydrate needs wisely.
10. Adapt your carbohydrate strategy for your exercise goals.
11. Be 100 percent aware of the treats you eat.
12. Manage treats with an eye on your goals.
13. Shape your social and physical environment.

I've had an unhealthy relationship with food for as long as I can remember and this book gives me hope. It is incredibly refreshing to read that I do not have to count calories or punish myself to lose weight. Sure, I've heard this concept before, but I didn't really believe it and I certainly didn't have a clearly laid out plan to achieve it. This book tells you how - step by step. It is a fast and easy read and I know I will be referring back to it again and again as I work my way through each habit. I'm 2 days in so I haven't even scratched the surface of this program, but I honestly feel a great sense of relief already. No more counting calories, no more yo-yo dieting, no more nonsense.

This is the most reasonable habit change for leanness book I've seen/read in a while. The habits are definitely do-able including eating 3-4 meals a day after you've experienced 30-60 minutes of hunger, eating mostly whole foods, stopping when you have had enough, supported by other good habits like staying hydrated, eating a balanced amount of protein, fat, and carbs, getting enough sleep, etc. I'd actually call this a healthy habits for living book to be entirely accurate. If you want to change your life to be more healthy, following the advice in this book is a great place to start.
