Was there a book that really changed your way of thinking about food, workouts, health, etc.? I am looking for a new book and I really wanted to find something that opens your eyes. I would love any suggestions you may have! Thanks!

Greater Health God's Way by Stormie Omartian. This for me was the primer about basic health. I learned so much from the book and it served as a foundation towards pursuing a healthier lifestyle. It won't appeal to everyone as it has a very Christian basis but it was life changing for me.

You: The Owner's Manual by Dr. Oz. Everything we should know about our bodies but don't. I find it so helpful to understand what my body is doing in order to make healthy adjustments.

Potatoes Not Prozac by Kathleen DesMaisons. This book is geared towards those who deal with sugar sensitivity and/or addiction, but in general it really helped me to understand the brain-body connection.

Women, Food, and God by Geneen Roth. I've only started this book, but already it is opening my mind and heart to understand the interconnectedness of emotional pain and binge eating.

Right now I am working on "Four Day Win: End Your Diet War and Achieve Thinner Peace (http://www.amazon.com/Four-Day-Win-Achieve-Thinner/dp/1594866074)" by Martha Beck

I am REALLY liking it so far. She talked a lot about how to change the way you think about food and dieting. And includes a lot of exercises.

The Beck Diet Solution by Dr. Judith Beck. It is a "how to deal" book that works with any diet and gives truly good tips about how to stop overeating. Since reading that book, even tho I do still sometimes overeat, it's rare - and I no longer feel guilty for not eating all my meal at a restaurant or at home; throwing out food doesn't bother me!

I second this recommendation. I've read a lot of diet books, and this is the one I turn to over and over again. It deals not with a specific diet, but with change management, and how to succeed at making habit changes. I even find myself using the things I learn and practice in this book in other situations, like improving my relationship with my daughter or improving my work habits.
