"Never Say Diet" by Chantel Hobbs

I'm on a "get healthy" kick so when I was offered the chance to read and review these books by Chantel Hobbs I said "Sure,why not?" I had never heard of her before. I'm honestly glad I got the chance to read her books. She has an amazing story of how she lost 200lbs in a period of 2 years and kept the weight off. Unlike alot of diet books that focus on food ...she puts the focus on your brain and changing how you think of food. She does put alot of emphasis on exercise as well. The first 4 weeks are about becoming disciplined in how you move or exercise. She gives very simple examples of cardio as well as strengthening. Her food isn't something you have to spend alot of money on. It's simple things with portion control and balance.
I also like her personal fitness trainer guide where you can actually write down what you do daily to keep progress. I find in my job..if they don't write it didn't happen. When you're first trying to make a change it is so important to track your progress so that you can see you are making steps toward the goal. Weight loss isn't something that is easy or that happens without time,effort,motivation,and guidance. Chantel is a Christian who uses scripture as a support and motivator.
She's very honest in her own personal story and tells you about her successes as well as failures. She has a great website that gives you some of the basic info in the book such as the primary fuel foods and exercises to try. It's also there for support and questions.
One of the biggest things I've found with the people I work with is that they need support and encouragement.
If you struggle with weight or just want to lose a few pounds and feel healthy,these are excellent books to help you.
