Tip #7: BE CAREFUL NOT TO PROGRAM YOUR BODY FOR WEIGHT GAIN. There are certain eating strategies that cause your body to cry out for more food. Eating foods that cause rapid blood sugar rise/falls is the culprit.
Tip #8: USE VISUALS TO HELP YOUR SUB-CONSCIOUS TAKE ACTION. This is good advice, often practiced in personal goal setting. Find a picture of someone you want to look like and look at it every day.
Tip #9: PLAN MONTHLY REWARDS FOR WHEN YOU ARE SUCCESSFUL. Again, not an unusual tip, but a good one.
Tip #10: MAKE LITTLE CHANGES. A simple, but wise suggestion. "Start walking every day - walk for 7 1/2 minutes and then turn around and walk back. You just had a 15 minute walk." The author understands that few dieters are really going to be able to handle massive lifestyle changes.
Tip #11: KNOW YOUR TRIGGER FOOD & DECIDE HOW TO HANDLE THEM. I never thought of this. Where was this tip when I had the big muffin from Panera's bakery this morning? The idea is, figure out in advance what you're going to do when your friend suggests you take a big bite out of some cheesecake (or that muffin.)
Tip #12: KEEP A FOOD JOURNAL. I've seen this suggested elsewhere, but it's still a good tip.
Tip #14: TAME YOUR FOOD ENVIRONMENT. Don't have those tempting nacho chips right in front of your face when you open the cupboard.
Here is the tip that surprised me:
Tip #16 TAKE A SPOONFUL OF BRAGG'S ORGANIC APPLE CIDER VINEGAR IN A CUP OF WATER. What? Is this some sort of phoney ad for that company? I had never heard of this idea before. Upon further reading and research, I found that it's not the brand--Bragg's--that's important. Rather, it's the contents of apple cider vinegar--specifically something called "acetic acid."
Honestly, I thought Tip #16 was complete baloney when I read it. I was wrong. I investigated the research on taking a little acetic acid, and indeed, there is scientific basis for "take the apple cider vinegar" idea. (They've tested both on humans and rats, so take your pick.) The study showed a modest weight loss in the group of obese people who just had a small amount (2 tablespoons daily.) The rats having the vinegar similarly did not gain fat like the other rats.
I admit that this evening, I stopped by the market and bought some apple cider vinegar (store brand.) Truthfully, it tastes HORRIBLE! I mixed it in with water, and it still almost makes me gag. But to lose a few pounds, I'm giving it a try.
√ All in all, a useful, practical book. Tip #16 alone was worth the read, even though I almost gagged. Thanks for tip #16!
♫ A Review by Chris Lawson
Note: I do not know the author of this book, and no one requested I write this review. They were too cheap to even send me any free apple cider vinegar.
