Look at the reviews, almost all of the five star reviews were written on the same day - red flag - fake reviews!!!. They were done by people with no other reviews, but surprise, this book! December 20th, 2011 has a bunch of long "five star reviews" all on the same day, and all of them have the same writing style. Come on now, as an author you should have more class than writing fake reviews! This book is awful, and the author is a complete fraud. This hurts Amazons sales because people like me start questioning products with good reviews. Don't waste your money!

What Coach Yourself Thin is about is getting your health journey started from beginning to end. This book is a resource for eating guidelines, exercise expertise, and dealing with mindset and motivation issues we all face in our health journey. A great resource book to own and to reread as needed. Everything is explained in understandable terms. Does it work? After losing 100 lbs with Greg and Michael's coaching -- My answer is a resounding YES!!!

As a student of Heath & Wellness since loosing 70 lbs and keeping it off for the past 3 years, I feel "Coach Your Self Thin" is the most well rounded complete solution to the "battle of the buldge". This book is revolutionary because it puts the reader in a driver seat to take back control forever. It takes the best of the latest diet & exercise information and couples it with "Beck" psychology to help create the healthy behavior. By first training your brain to overcome your own negative thinking, misconceptions, and barriers you will then be able to use the tools in the book. Topics are often followed by a self reflecting quiz and "aha moment" exercise. Each chapter lays a building block to a new attitude and dicipline. Testimonials are sprinkled throught the book help the reader find common ground. This book is an arsenal of information to lose weight and keep it off. If you are ready to overcome the barriers keeping you from being healthy then buy this book. Commit with your mind and you will see change.

Are you sick and tired of plans that sell empty promises - of attaining quick weight loss and a hard body, in ridiculously little time and with little or no effort? Me too! I'm happy to tell you that you won't find any of that in this book! No gimmicks or cookie-cutter plans here. What the authors DO have to offer through their perspective, their coaching and the exercises offered throughout this book is nothing short of life changing!! I know, from experience - having lost 125 pounds with their help - and having kept it off for 4 years now!

If you are willing to do the work to look inside yourself, using the book as a guide, to find (and work on) the obstacles that are holding you back from losing weight and enjoying the life you deserve, then I wholeheartedly believe that you won't find yourself needing to look at another diet book or plan EVER again! It's been 4 years since I lost my weight and I'm now living my life, happily, and doing things I never thought possible! Best of all, I've ended my battle with yo-yo diets. This book will give you all of the tools you need. I can't recommend Coach Yourself Thin highly enough, to anyone who struggles with weight or wants to become healthier! It is by far the most empowering book I've ever read, on any topic! And it WILL deliver!

Some quick thoughts on the tone of the book - I loved the flow. It is easy to read and almost conversational in nature. The authors made their points very clearly, using powerful examples that really brought their concepts home. On top of all of this, the light humor they slipped in here and there was fun. I felt like the authors were in the same room, coaching me, at many points! I found myself shaking my head in agreement, and understanding myself even better, with each paragraph I read.

I have read a lot of diet, fitness, and wellness books. And like many people, I've tried quick weight-loss schemes and extreme exercise regimens--all of which resulted in short-term success and long-term failure. When I read this book, I felt relieved--and supported. In it, I found clear, concise information about adopting a wellness lifestyle, not about engaging in destructive dieting and exercise. The authors are clearly experts in their field--with a deep understanding of human nature and what keeps us from healthy living. The chapters on obstacles really provided some light-bulb moments for me. This book has provided me with a resource I will use over and over again--and the inspiration to really look at what stories I've told myself about fitness, and how to tell healthier stories about who I am in the world. I'll be recommending this to friends for sure.

I, as many of you, looked for the "magic" pills or food combo or fad diet, ANYTHING to lose the weight that had held me back for years. If that is what you are looking for, this would NOT be the book for you. This book is the "Real Deal". It teaches you how to find the "root" of the problems that have made, and are keeping, you unhealthy. Michael and Greg have structured this book in a way that if YOU do the work, you WILL succeed! You must find what your roadblocks are, and work towards your "Ah-Ha" moment that will finally put you on the road to a healthy lifestyle. I have worked with Greg and Michael for more than 3 years now, and I am so happy that they wrote this book. Because now that their coaching has helped me learn so much about myself and the behaviors that were keeping me overweight, I have lost and kept off over 100 pounds for over 20 months. And now with this book, it is like having my coaches in my back pocket. The teachings in this book showed me that a healthy lifestyle is just that...LIFE! It is not a diet that is OVER when you see a certain number on a scale, or fit into that certain outfit. NO! It is learning to live and be your healthiest and best YOU! So if you are ready to FINALLY deal with the truth that there is NOT a "Quick-Fix" to getting healthy, this book has all of the tools you need to help get you there.
