Having gone on her first diet at age 11 and now almost 40 years later having dropped over 125 pounds without dieting or slaving at the gym, she has found that most of what we have learned about weight loss is a big fat lie. This book provides anyone looking to lose weight the tips, tools and inspiration they need to achieve their weight loss and health goals, with a revolutionary approach to break the cycle of yo-yo dieting. Written with clarity, wit, and common sense, this is a book anyone (even skinny people) will enjoy.

But you don't have to be concerned about your weight for this book to be a valuable tool. Give it a read... it might very well change the way you think about everything from money to relationships.

About the author (2010)

I am not a doctor, nurse, trainer, psychologist, nutritionist or dietician. I did not go to university to study any of those things. I was actually an art major! I did go to the school of hard knocks, aka real life experience, for my knowledge of dieting and weight loss. What I do is show women who are frustrated with yo-yo dieting, who are tired of feeling bad about themselves, how to gain their health once and for all without dieting! I can do this because I have been there. In my life I have tried just about every diet there was, starting at eleven years of age. Just a few short years ago I was over 300 pounds, tired all the time, unhappy, on anti-depressants and prescription medication to control heart palpitations. I was told I would be on these medications the rest of my life. I did not like that idea, but I had resigned myself to it. It was not until I decided to shift my mindset, and unresign myself that things began to change. I have since lost over 125 pounds, gained energy and overall health and I am off all medications. I have been able to take control of my life and no longer suffer from cravings. What I have discovered is that pretty much everything we have been taught about dieting is a big fat lie! It is truly possible for everyone to achieve their ideal weight without having to be a slave at the gym or give up your favorite foods forever.
