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.
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.
