If two heads are supposed to be better than one, how about 516 heads? That’s the number of contributors to this inspiring book in the popular How to Survive series. How to Lose 9,000 lbs or Less collects real advice and stories from people who’ve fought on the front lines of the diet wars and won. Topics include motivation (how to turn that nonstop diet chatter into action); brand-name diets (which ones work best); exercise (fun ways to get fit); medical help (from pills to surgery); and sticking with it (how to keep the weight off). The book encourages and entertains with surprising but practical insights such as eating a pickle to counter sugar cravings or putting a picture of an exercise guru on the treadmill for accountability.

My name is posted under a statement in this book about losing weight. I want it known that I did not and have never written anything to be stated in this book and will be taking this to my attorney for further proceedings. I have to wonder how many other names have been falsely added to statements in this book.
