I would recommend this book to anyone. It has common sense information, plus things most people aren't aware of. This is not a 'diet' book and actually stresses how you shouldn't 'diet'. Alot of 'diet' plans have you change your eating habits in such a drastic measure, or have you eat what they give you, you lose the weight...then you gain it all back and probably more. That's because they just tell you what to do/eat and don't explain why, therefore you don't understand the what's and why's. This book explains all that to you.

This book basically teaches you how and what to eat, why, and how NOT to be obsessed with counting calories, measuring portions, etc. It helps you not to be so obsessive about losing weight and helps you lose the weight in a realistic, stress-free fashion and guides you through it. Let's face it, most "dieting" trends have you wound tight with so much stress that it seems to be the only focus in your life and you can't wait til it's over. This book takes you away from that and helps you lose the weight without you having to give up your life to do it, lol.

I found this book very helpful and lost 25 pounds.

I lost 138 pounds on this eating plan and kept it off for a year--when I went back to old, emotional eating habits, sure enough, the pounds returned. Beginning is a bit drastic, but staying on is easy if you pay attention--I didn't, but have learned the folly of that and am resuming the plan. The eating plan is actually low-glycemic. The writing is important--my slip off began when I quit writing...

Despite the fact that I typically don't have a whole lot of respect for Dr. Phil, I found this book to be a really good guide to achieving and maintaining a health weight. The first section of the book gets you motivated and into the correct head space for making changes in your life. The second section is more focused on learning the tools and information necessary to be successful. What I like about this book is that it frames weight loss not just from the perspective of a "diet" and instead focuses on lifelong changes and choices geared towards being healthy. I started out my weight loss journey with this book, joined Weight Watchers, and I've lost the weight. This book is really a great resource and I recommend it to you completely.

The facts are the same, but the way he delivers it is his good ol' Southern psychologist style.

Remember, when it comes to weight loss, you are a volunteer, not a victim.

My husband did very well with this book. It was very simple for us to cut out the bad foods in my house. Just doing that, he lost 10 pounds. Easy to read and follow. Good weight loss.

OK, but focuses very much on the intellectual, rational side of losing weight. The basic advice is good, but for the emotional side of the struggle to lose weight, I found a book like "The Beck Diet Solution Weight Loss Workbook" by Judith S. Beck much more helpful. Both together would be great.

I want to challenge you about your weight and yourself in a way that you have never been challenged before. We both know that the endless string of fad diets has done nothing but leave you heavier than before. The Ultimate Weight Solution is a book that is the product of thirty years of working with overweight patients an dfiguring out what really works.
