"This book can simply change your life. I know - I've been dieting all my life and got nowhere, but can see how the strategies described in this book can change it forever."
- Amazon Customer J (verified purchase)

"I highly recommend it."

"This is an excellent book. I've read the original Mini Habits book, which was also excellent, but I didn't think this would have much to add to the original book. I was definitely wrong, I'm glad to say. This book provides a fresh perspective on the concepts of dieting, exercise, and weight loss."
- Tomeika Ulett-Garcia (verified purchase)

"Different from any other weight loss book out there. I have previously enjoyed and put into practice the original Mini Habits and have started using the ideas here. He shows easy ways to get into healthy eating patterns--and his frozen fruit (especially mangos), yogurt and cinnamon dessert idea is a yummy substitute for those of us needing a sugary treat!"
- Bonnie Beaver (verified purchase)

"This has changed my way of thinking about diet and weight loss."

This is not just another a dieting book. it does not have recipes. It does not tell you to eliminate this or that from your diet. None of that crap. None of the usual 'you need to motivate yourself' hype.

This book can simply change your life. I know - I've been dieting all my life and got nowhere, but can see how the strategies described in this book can change it forever.

I'm a big fan of Stephen Guise's Mini Habit strategy to habit formation. And here he has written another book that can help people get healthier, slimmer, happier in a simplest, easiest to implement and successful way. The author applies his famous Mini Habits principles to eating habits, bypassing completely the ineffective, hyped-up mainstream dieting strategies, showing why they don;t and can't work.

Diets make us fat. If we really want to lose weight, he argues, our goal should not be losing weight, but changing our behaviour And this is achievable through changing our habits, because consistency is the key to lasting behavioural change.

Stephen present scientific evidence to support his claims. He also gives multiple examples of effective strategies. Do you know there are 8 ways in which you can stop drinking soda drinks? Out of them, only 1 is really about forcing yourself to stop drinking it outright. The remaining 7 are much more realistic and 'user friendly', and therefore more likely to be adhered to and - consistent!

I like when he debunks some oof my 'pet hates' dieting myths of 'healthier option a.k.a. a smoothie' or a diet foods and drinks, low-fat dairy, the 'I deserve it' trick (one of my weakest points, I admit). he also gives plenty of strategies for dealing with temptations, cravings, grocery shopping, eating out, etc - and all of it realistic!

Stop dieting - change your life and your weight with Mini Habits for weight loss!

Since receiving the book on Sunday November 27th I have read it twice and made notes. Well researched. Learn about motivation, willpower, and shame. Choose mini habits for food & fitness, they are easy. Cues to help you achieve them. Strategies to deal with situations, temptations, eating out, and grocery shopping. And much more. I enjoyed all the ways to look at food and fitness. It's different than any other book on weight loss I've read. (And I've read 100's). I recommend anyone who wants a new outlook on food and fitness to read this and see for yourself. Great job, Stephen, keep up the good work!

This book came out at the right time for me. People who are trying to lose weight, myself included, are often stuck in a very negative spiral of thinking about themselves. Guise's tone is so uplifting in this book, which has made a big difference to me from the first page.

There is one passage that really stood out to me: "Mainstream motivational theory states that, in order to enact change, one must simply "want it more."...it's a pity that we're not motivated enough to save our own lives and live better. But wait...the weight loss industry made $64 billion in 2014. When that much money is spent on something, it means public interest is through the thermosphere...people have willingly suffered and paid money trying to lose weight, and they are still being told their desire for change isn't strong enough. That's so wrong it's criminal...People have plenty of desire, they just need a smart strategy that doesn't rely on doing the impossible."

Guise is on our side! He gets it. I've never heard something like this said before. I've read other weight loss and self-help books that make you feel less than human; a lot of people just aren't patient or nice to you if you're overweight or depressed. But Guise never talks down to you. He's jovial and friendly. He jokes with you! And his ideas are so well-researched and well-reasoned that you can't help but feel hopeful.

Stephen's book "Mini Habits" already changed my entire life around. So this new book was the icing on the cake. I'm going to be re-reading it and taking notes on sections that were especially helpful. Of all the books ever written my favorite 3 are now: The Bible. Mini Habits. Mini Habits for Weight Loss. In eager expectation of ANYTHING else he writes next!

This is an excellent book. I've read the original Mini Habits book, which was also excellent, but I didn't think this would have much to add to the original book. I was definitely wrong, I'm glad to say. This book provides a fresh perspective on the concepts of dieting, exercise, and weight loss. Stephen Guise will open your mind to help you overhaul your life. He provides strategies that can be applied to help make healthy changes that will benefit you for a lifetime. Great read. He is also quite entertaining. You won't regret it.

I found the mini habits concept really helpful, and the application to weight loss practical. I had never considered that the body resists big change, and that small changes allow you to trick the body into reaching your goals. It makes perfect sense and explains why most of us regain the weight we lose.

This is an excellent book, easy to read and understand. I highly recommend it. I rarely pay more than a buck for an ebook, but this one was worth the $5.99.
