Exceptional book that tells you how true masters of weight loss (those who not only lost the weight but have kept it off for many years)managed to not only lose the weight but keep it off. There are lots of tips to help all of us become masters of weight loss also.
I loved this book because it didn't tell you one way to lose weight and keep it off but told you about a number of different people and how they all managed to lose the weight and more importantly how they have managed to keep it off.

What a novel idea: if you want to know how to successfully lose weight, study the real experts--the people who have done it! Registered dietician Anne Fletcher did just that. She surveyed 160 "masters" who succeeded in losing at least 20 pounds and keeping the weight off for at least 3 years. This was the minimum; most lost far more weight--an average of 63 pounds--and more than one-third have kept the weight off for a decade or more.

How did they do it? Thin for Life presents their success stories, strategies, motivation, inspiration, and tricks. Most had tried "many times and many ways" to lose weight before discovering what worked for them and how to prevent and recover from relapses. Some techniques worked for many--such as keeping a food diary and increasing exercise. Others were highly individual and will spur you to do your own creative thinking. Fletcher compiles the "10 keys to success" that emerged most often, lets the masters speak for themselves throughout the book, and fills in additional, valuable information and resources. Whether you have 10 pounds to lose or 100, this book will help you do it--safely, effectively, and permanently. Highly recommended. --Joan Price

This is a wonderful book. Its not a diet how-to book but a book full of success stories of people who have lost weight.

Very good, practical advice, nothing "miraculous". Compared to some of the newer diet books, this one might sound a bit too simple- but it makes tons more sense. Can appeal to both men and women.
