I'm fairly sure the author just compiled a bunch of magazines she found in the doctor's office, and voila, she had a book! It's not compelling. It's not well-written. It's not new information. If you have horrible eating and exercise habits in the sense that you do nothing but eat double cheeseburgers in front of the TV and you've never considered any other way of life, this may be the book for you. These are probably things you already do anyway, like drink more water and eat more veggies and take the stairs instead of the elevator.

The tips in this book certainly aren't going to make you slim if you have the genetic predisposition to be fat. (And I'm not into shaming fat people by oversimplifying weight loss or implying they MUST to be worthy human beings.) It's a disappointing book whether you're a fitness freak or just a regular person who's unsatisfied with his or her body. Not sure who the target audience was, and neither was the author.

Don't eat fast food, fats or sugar. Control your portion size. Drink water. Sleep. Don't skip a meal. Exercise a few times a week. Write a food dairy. Set reasonable weight loss goals.

52 basic advices we should all follow but mainly don't. You will find nothing new in this book nor will have scientific nutritional knowledge that will somehow transform your diet from unhealthy to healthy. You will not get a program to follow, a list of foods to eat or avoid, nor recipes.

You do get the advice, quotes, ideas, questions you might want to ask and sensible answers. As a motivational tool, it might work. It will also keep you from fad diets, fasting, diet-pills and get-thin-quickly schemes. Not too shabby for a freebie.

Written in the UK, it uses references that sound quite medieval. I don't know how much a stone weights but I'm pretty sure I could stand to loose a few ! I'll be sure to give the author good advice a try...

I 'purchased' both this book and Drop A Dress Size when both were being offered for free. Being forewarned by Iola's review, I set about doing a comparison before actually reading either. The result? These are not the same book:

Lose Weight and Stay Slim predates Drop A Dress Size and has 3435 kindle locations; the sole author is Eve Cameron.

Drop A Dress Size has 1637 Kindle locations and is a multi-author revision (and, in my opinion, vast improvement) to Eve's, Lose Weight and Stay Slim.

If I may generalize, Eve's work is very chatty and I find her writing tedious. She is coming from a dieter's point of view, with topics including what to do when you fall off the diet, and attending support meetings (such as Weight Watchers).

In contrast, and again speaking in general terms, Drop A Dress Size is coming from a "diets don't work" point of view, eliminates the chatty filler, and expands on lifestyle changes.

I'd intended to do an in-depth comparison of the two but, frankly, reading Eve's book is too tiresome. She does have some good tips and thoughtful/inspirational quotes, but these are all included in Drop A Dress Size.

I hope this helpful to someone else. There is no reason to buy both books.

I thought I was getting a free book for my Kindle. It seems I paid a dollar to read a few unedited pages of self-published, poor writing style to read that hunger pangs may come from dehydration and to try water before eating food. Very unimpressed.

I found this to be an interesting read, as I have with all the books I've read so far in this series, full of lots of ideas, some I'd heard of before and some I hadn't. I recommend it to someone who has tried losing weight several times and been unsuccessful because it has ideas and explanations you might not have heard of before.
