The book contains 101 mental toughness strategies, each of which is easily digestible in that they are two pages long and end with a page that features two boxes, one for a critical thinking question and the other for an action step.
The book doesn't suggest any particular or specific diet, but rather encourages each reader to find the diet that works for them. The author says fat loss can be achieved with many diets, and that the key is the mental toughness to stick to it until your goals are achieved, and then to have the mental toughness and discipline to keep the lost weight off.
Throughout the book, Siebold offers healthy doses of tough love. He uses himself often as an example of someone who let himself get fat, and then through mental toughness and dieting lost the weight and kept it off. So he's been there, and he's done it. He encourages readers to do the same.
If you need a kick in the pants to help yourself become committed to sticking to your diet until you achieve the weight and fitness goals you desire, and want to see how your mind and mental fortitude can help you achieve your goals, this is the book for you. While it is aimed at losing weight, the same strategies will help with other areas of your life too. If you are overweight and have blamed anyone or anything other than yourself for your weight gain, you might be upset or offended when Siebold tells you it's your fault you're fat. But take that anger to help yourself achieve your weight loss goals.
I thought this was an excellent book on mental toughness training, and contained many concepts that will help with many areas of life. It is the first book I've read by Steve Siebold, but I'm not interested in reading some of the others he written.
Bottom line, if you want to lose weight and keep it off, you must have the right mindset. This book will help you get it.

I’m 5’ 9” and 140 pounds. I’ve never been more than 10 pounds overweight in my life, but have followed Siebold’s mental toughness message for a few years, so I grabbed his latest read.
Most people know that poor diet and little exercise cause health problems and low energy levels. But what about your net worth? Your sex life? Or the date of your death? It’s all pretty common sense, but I’d never considered it.
This book has 101 short chapters that paint diet and exercise differently from what you may be used to. A couple of pages each day will reinforce habit change, and though I may need it less than most (70% of Americans are overweight), this book is making me eat better and exercise more.
Unless you’re already eating and exercising like a professional athlete, you will benefit from reading this.
Thanks Steve and hope you hit the Top 10 Best Sellers list. That's where you belong.
Steve gained 40 pounds and had to lose it ( he had always been very fit) and he knows how tough it is but he also knows that for many us ( myself especially) we fail to see things through. We don't commit 100% and that ( among other reasons) is why we fail
( according to Yoda).
He motivated me to start again and really keep with it. Love the frameable "Don't Be Stupid" poster. Also, "Grow Up!"
It really didn't motivate me but instead almost discouraged me from following its very strict regimen.
