I know that the Maintenance group is doing a book club type thing with "Thin for Life" but I recently bought "Thin for Life" as well as "Eating Thin for Life". I started reading "Eating Thin for Life" first and I am amazed to find things in there that I have recently discovered myself. Like using meat as a condiment and filling up on veggies and fruits. Although I eat very few fruits at the moment, I have started adding some in, mostly blueberries. The other thing was wanting to lose weight/maintain a healthy weight more than wanting to eat the wrong foods. Recently, I discovered that I have lost the taste for my former favorite foods because I can only see them as helping me maintain an unhealthy weight or gaining more weight.
Anyway, really, I was thinking that I wish I had read this book a few years ago and it would've saved me some trouble rather than learning these things on my own. If you haven't looked at these books, I would highly at least taking a peek.
