What initially taught about weight loss was Dr. Phil's Ultimate Weight Solution a few years back. Then I kinda moved on to Dr. Oz's You On A Diet.
Cookbooks that are helping me are ones by Kathleen Daelmans, Devin Alexander (from the Biggest Loser), Elie Krieger, and also a subscribtion to Healthy Cooking magazine. Also, I love Rachael Ray, so I try to convert some of her recipes into healthier ones by using a bit less EVOO.
