GOOD NEWS: Fletcher has produced an excellent compilation of weight loss tactics from individuals she calls "masters." In Eating Thin for Life you'll find first-hand accounts from 160 men and women who have experienced permanent weight loss, an average of 64 pounds for more than ten years. The book is brief, informative, and interesting -- full of practical basics. Choose from an abundance of tips and strategies that apply to obstacles in your life.
EVEN BETTER: A refreshing change from generic text book solutions to dropping pounds for good. You won't find the usual chapters on fat, protein, carbohydrate and exercise. Instead, the book hits on five major food secrets that are a common thread among success stories. Rather than a rigid menu, Fletcher has printed 21 days of ideas for breakfasts, lunches, dinners and snacks from the masters. Many of these meals require no cooking and can be prepared from items commonly found in the fridge or pantry. Mix and match however you like, including healthy favorites of your own. Enjoy over 120 recipes created by the masters themselves -- made with real food!
THE BEST: In contrast to general approaches given by professionals in the field, these real life experiences can help readers find someone to relate to, someone who has been in a similar position with regard to weight or attitude or habits. You won't be bombarded by numbers and rules; enjoy freedom from the typical do's and don'ts. It is all about finding out what works for you. The stories from the masters really support the point that losing weight is not just about the foods you eat or how much you exercise -- but it is in your attitude towards food, and your outlook for a better future, a healthier life.
