Thinfluence should not be considered a stand alone diet book; rather, this is a an excellent supplement/resource to any diet or lifestyle change program you follow to help increase your ability to lose weight and eat healthier. What this book does that I haven't seen any other do is to tackle the outside social influences that inhibit or make much more difficult the ability to eat healthier. I've read diet books about ca

I am not prone to reading health books. In fact, Thinfluence was the first “diet” book that I have ever read, although one can’t strictly call it a diet book. I decided to read it because the authors seem to have some clout, unlike some other “health fundis”.

Essentially, more than addressing eating plans, Thinfluence addresses the influences that affect our dietary health. I am not certain that it is a new concept entirely, but it is worded and conceptualized in a better fashion than ever before

Interesting version of a diet that does not provide menu, but rather establishing a set of strategic relationships with the environment that surrounds the person who wants to lose weight; the question that the author arises is quite effective: in which way the environment that surrounds us affects our eating habits and how our incapacity to maintain a healthy balanced diet. New point of view for the same old problem of nutrition education.

Very interesting to read, full of great information, which seems so obvious when you read it, but not anything I've ever really thought about.

A useful book for discovering all the ways we are influenced to choose our foods and exercise habits. Using research that finds people have similar weight, food choices, and exercise patterns to those around them, Thinfluence used a model of 'circles of influence', it describes how home, friends, neighborhood, work environment, media, and public policy all contribute to creating our health habits. It helps you take stock, be aware, and find options, to get to where you want to be.

There's some really good information in this book and one of the better things it does is truly point out the fact that it takes more than will power and exercise to lose weight. If you're interested in pursuing this--and if you live in Fort Wayne--let me know. I see a good group developing around this book.
