Default My Diet Bible

I use the South Beach books. I find them very helpful with food lists, menus, and recipes. The recipes I have tried are delicious--even though I have advance doubts at times. They also inspire me to adapt favorite standard recipes to be SB friendly. I had to learn a completely new way of meal planning and cooking after 50 years of meat and potatoes. My local library has all of the books and there are always copies available.

Change Your Brain, Change Your Life.

Discusses the huge impact of self talk and how we can train ourselves to be positive.
My goals are not measured in pounds, but rather by the self love and trust gained through Intuitive Eating. I accept that there are no quick fixes. That there is no miracle diet or drug. I will never give another $1 to the $50 billion dollar weight loss industry that fails us time and time again. I welcome the journey back to my own wisdom.

Are you looking for Weight loss books or depression books?

I can't say I have found many weight loss books that have helped but there are three books that I have read that I always find helpful.

This Year I Will
I Thought It Was Just Me (But it Isn't) by Brene Brown
The Gifts of Imperfection by Brene Brown

I, honestly, turn too the two books by Brene Brown very often. The Gifts of Imperfection is a fantastic book and I plan on ordering BOTH of the books I listed for my friends as gifts. I can't promise they will help you but both of them were very helpful to me and helped me realize I am not always as alone as I think I am.

Mini Goals: 4/16/14
Lose 10lbs (249 - 239) - 4.02% Loss
Completed a 5k in 2014
Log Calories/Food for 30 Days
Gym 3 Days a Week for 30 Days

Binge Eating for Dummies

Even if you are not a binge eater, it still has quite a few insights into all the different relationships and psychosis involving you and food. It'll help, I think, especially for those whose relationship with food relates to depression

And because its "for dummies" it's totally approachable, succinct where you need it to be, and divided into topics that you can go straight to or skip over
