100 lb. Club - Looking For a Specific Kind of Weight Loss Book....

08-17-2009, 12:48 PM
I'm looking for suggestions on a specific kind of weight loss book. I don't want a book that is going to outline a plan for me, I know what I have to do and what I have to eat. I know how to do this. What I want is a book that takes a psychological approach to the whole weight loss journey. I feel that if I can conquer this mentally I could succeed. I'm an emotional person to begin with and if I could get ahold of that and understand myself better maybe it would help?

The Beck Diet solution looks pretty good and may be good for what you want.

The Fat Solution by Tom Venuto -- more than half the book deals with the "mental training" side of weight loss. Lots of good action items to help you form your own plan.

Secrets of a Former Fat Girl

It's ALL psychological, and no diet plan, and I could really identify with her.
