This book is AWESOME. It's not a "diet"- it's a way of life. It's completely right on and is written in such a friendly, easy-to-understand manner with charts & outlined boxes to help bring key points out. I NOW FINALLY understand that carbs. are the GOOD GUYS- Yes to pasta! Yes to baked potatoes! Yes to BREAD and rice and cereal!!! (minus the butter, sour cream, bacon bits and whole milk, of course!) I also learned that you should NEVER, EVER skip meals. You won't lose weight by doing so and, in fact, it takes you back a few steps because your body then begins to think you are starving on a mountaintop somewhere so it STORES UP energy and slows down metabolism; thus discouraging you and severely slowing down wgt loss. It amazes me that most of the dieting population still subscribes to the "no carbs" philosophy. How could you live the rest of your life without carbs?? You can't- and you don't have to. The reason for this thought process must be a lack of education. This book is NOT A QUICK FIX, but an educational tool. It not only educates you for life-- but dispells the great myth that breads, pastas and potatoes are bad for you. Complex carbohydrates to your every day life, health and weight loss are just as important to your body as drinking water every day is! If I had 3 thumbs- I'd give them all up for this book!!

DIETS DON'T WORK! I have been searching for some way to change my way of thinking about food. I woke up every day planning where and what I would eat. Food was my life. Now I really think about food differently! I actually see it as the FUEL needed to maintain my body. I always thought I ate "healthy". I loved meats, potatoes, veggies. Never ate desserts and couldn't figure out why I was fat. It never dawned on me that what I was putting on these foods mattered a lot!! I have learned to eat everything I did before, but in a healthier way. Some days I can barely get down all the food that is required! All I did was begin to become aware of FAT CALORIES. This is a life change plan. Thanks for changing my life.

Having been on every diet in the world,I finally came to my own conclusion that diets simply don't work. I was delighted to find that "Choose To Lose" not only agrees, but encourages you not to weigh yourself and simply eat generous amounts of good, whole, naturally low fat nutritious food. Since I threw my scale out and began following the basic guidelines of "Choose To Lose", I've lost weight, gained back my self-respect and have enormous energy with a steady stable mood throughout the day. Throw out all your diet books and choose to live right now!!
