Glad to see this thread is still alive..

These books are geared to people on low carb and diabetics who want to turn their lives around. Also, geared to people who want to change their lives with whole food and losing weight with whole foods. These books also have great recipes in the back of them.

I like Kim Bensen's "Finally Thin." I just wish she had gone into more detail describing her day-to-day-life as she lost weight. Also, she didn't say how many points - or the equivalent in calories - she was consuming as she lost weight. But it is an encouraging read.

I liked Finally Thin by Kim Bensen, too. One of the things I liked were all the tools where she presents the many options for how to lose weight. What works is different for everyone.

At about the same time, I read The Complete Beck Diet for Life by Judith Beck. The two together really helped me get going on my weight loss journey.

Wow, lots of books I wasn't aware of! I haven't perused this whole thread, so these may have already been listed.

Refuse to Regain, by Barbara Berkeley, MD.

40 years of yo-yo dieting ended. Now 2+ years in long term weight maintenance, 70 pounds lost and I went through menopause in the first year of weight maintenance. Never too late!

I can't believe I never saw this thread before! It looks like there are some very interesting choices here. I, too, am a diet book junkie. Sometimes reading through them gives me enough incentive to get back on track! When I am absolutely sure that a book is not the plan for me, I give it away, but recently I have been saving my money and checking them out of the library!

The Fat Loss Troubleshoot and "Starve Mode" by Leigh Peele are two books that have been very helpful to me as far as getting fit is concerned. I listen to the audiobooks of these titles at times when I'm exercising, as well.

There are many things in the dieting and fitness world that Leigh has observed through the years and commented upon in these books - since she had loads of experience, it was pretty interesting hearing her perspective.

What I enjoy most about these books are the no-nonsense, void of hype, very specific ideas put forward for the reader to consider, with her reasons as to why she has come to certain conclusions at the mo' - love that part, the why. This suits my personality just fine.

While I don't agree with her about everything, I have learned, and relearned, much from these books.
