Here's how they did it!,
This review is from: Chicken Soup for the Soul: Shaping the New You: 101 Encouraging Stories about Dieting and Fitness... and Finding What Works for You (Paperback)
Nothing is more riveting than a true story. This is especially true when it comes to weight loss. I don't want to hear from the latest diet guru what "should" work... I want to know what DOES work.
This collection of 101 weight loss success stories shows the myriad ways a person can lose weight, get fit and eat healthy. Cooking light at home, eating wisely at restaurants, working out at home, at the gym, outdoors, using DVDs, TV shows, machines, weights, resistance bands, or just strapping on plain old running shoes -- the everyday people in this book succeeded.
Not only are the stories inspirational, but they contain loads of practical tips and specifics on how each writer did it. I especially liked the story from the rabbi who found success on a diet of Heinz vegetarian baked beans! And the woman who lied -- very creatively -- in her very first food journal in seventh grade.
If your New Years resolution is to lose weight, get fit, or just plain live more healthfully, this is a good book for you. You can read just one story a day and it'll take you into April, by which time you'll be a success story yourself!
