3 Diet Books That Can Change Your Life In 2012

Reading Diet Book

Each year the diet industry gears up to begin selling massive amounts of product for all of the New Year’s resolutions that are made to lose weight. The diet industry sells the most products during December and January because of our tradition of setting weight loss goals. They keep selling that product because each year by the time Valentine’s Day rolls around we are back to eating chocolates by the box full and wondering where we went wrong.

If you are really dedicated to losing your excess weight and changing your life then here are three diet books that can help you change your life.

Why Women Need Fat: How “Healthy” Food Makes us Gain Weight and the Surprising Solution to Lose it Forever – Lasssek and Gaulin
The diet industry has us scared of fat. Low fat this, low fat that. This supposed healthy food is actually one thing that could be leading us to retain our excess weight, and even gain it back. This book while geared toward women can be used by both men and women who have fallen victim to the concept of a low fat diet. There are tons of fats out there, some of them are essential to your body function.

This book teaches you which fats are good, which fats may be less good and why you need fat in order to lose weight. The science behind it is real and it offers great information that disproves a lot of the fat myths out there. Pick up your copy and make fat your ally instead of your enemy.

Diet Rehab: 28 Days to Finally Stop Craving the Foods That Make You Fat – Dr. Mike Dow 
This book may be the answer for those who have compulsions when they eat. Dr. Mike Dow is the Doc who treats all those patients of the show Freaky Eaters. He specializes in breaking the cycle of addiction. This is a common problem for people who have gained excessive amounts of weight. They are no longer using food as a source of energy but as a source of comfort. Some are even addicted to the dopamine release that they receive when they overeat.

If you are someone who eats for comfort, to ease stress, to celebrate, or to feel better than this is the book that will help you change your life in 2012. Dr. Dow specializes in breaking that addiction with food and offers a ton of tips to help you change your body’s response to food. He also offers a list of ways that you can get your body to release those chemicals to make the transition less hard on your system.

Choose to Lose: The 7-Day Carb Cycle Solution – Chris Powell
Carbs have such a negative reputation in the diet community. It is hard to trust any diet book that tells you to avoid a vital macronutrient. Carb cycling is different though, primarily because you are not depriving your body of this macronutrient. Carb cycling tricks your body into becoming unaware of the nutrition you are going to give it. This in turn makes your metabolism work much more efficiently. Carb cycling is something that body builders have used for years to trim the fat and get ready for competitions. If it works to let their bodies drop fat it will certainly work for you.

Chris Powell repackages great information and puts it in words that are easy to understand. The best part about this plan is that you never feel deprived because of the cycling. Having a strict diet every other day is something that everyone can manage. I couldn’t go without white bread for the rest of my life, but I can manage every other day, and so can you.

Go out and pick up the book that is going to work best for you. Whether you need more fat, less addiction or just a simple way to incorporate some carbs back into your life; one of these books will work for you. Or pick up all three. The information in them is useful no matter which type of lifestyle change you make.

    Yeah, still looking for such kind of books. Looking for some great book and maybe, these are for me.

  2. Thanks for this. It’s not like I don’t have books on diets and weight loss already, but I really need some new information and new perspective on how I’m going to lose some weight and how I’m going to continue staying healthy. I won’t know which one I’ll like the best or if I’ll like any of them at all before I read them, but they all sound pretty interesting.

  3. Jack Simpson says:

    Why Women Need Fat: How “Healthy” Food Makes us Gain Weight and the Surprising Solution to Lose it Forever by Lasssek and Gaulin is a must read. My wife read it and I practically couldn’t recognize her after the changes that occurred. Great suggestions and information!

  4. Rehab Diet 28 is one of the best books out there! That completely changed my obsesssion with high-calorie and fatty foods. I’m definitely going to check out the other two!

  5. Kind of a silly question, but would my wife be offended if I got her one of these on her new kindle for christmas? Not saying she is fat but we both always talk about eating healthier but never get past the talking part.

  6. There is still the old rule first place on, last place off’, which means exactly how it sounds: the first place you store body fat is the last place where you will lose it. For most men, it is the lower abdominal region where they would store body fat first.

  7. This is very helpful I have never been one to make a resolution at new years but I have been known to diet once in awhile, yeah right, all the time. You have a great article here and you have mentioned some great books to read. Thank you so much for your work I will check the library for these as soon as possible.

  8. I am well aware that countless people make new year’s resolutions to lose fat. These will help to aid my weight loss. This was interesting information.

  9. Amy seems to be racking her brain with all sorts of complex diets, when all she or anyone else needs to do is eat sensibly (such as how some of these books teaches, particularly that book by Chris Powel) and here is the one most people dread: exercise. If you just learn how to exercise, you’ll realize that all you need is about 12 minutes a day.

  10. I feel that there are probably better books to while away the hours with! I say, spend your money and time on other expository endeavors, or fictional fantasies that take you away to exotic, fantastical places.

    “Great, thanks for sharing this article post. Fantastic.”

    • It depends on your weight. If you only have a few pounds to lose, like 10-15, then it’ll take longer to lose that amount than if you have over 20 pounds to lose. With the HCG drops, I’m guessing you could lose 7 pounds easy. More if you’re really strict while on the VLCD. Remember you only eat 500 calories a day, no sugar (nor fake sugars like splenda), 200 grams of meat total, 2 fruits, and 1 bread thing. If you want to lose the wigeht faster, you may want to cut out the bread stick and 1 of the fruits. Honestly, I started these drops 4 days ago (2 days of Phase 1, and now I’m on my second day of Phase 2) and I just got on the scale a few minutes ago and I lost 5 pounds in 1 day! But I have quite a bit of wigeht to lose so that won’t be the results for everyone. If you exercise at least 30 minutes a day also, you could lose even more than 10 pounds a week. Also, I haven’t been hungry on this diet. The drops help soo much!

    I was suggested this blog by my cousin. I am not
    sure whether this post is written by him as nobody else know such detailed about my trouble.
    You are wonderful! Thanks!
