Garbage of the worst kind. I would have given zero stars if I could. I have recovered from an eating disorder and I opened this book because I had it in my bookshelf for about 8 years. My intuition worked correctly these past years and I am glad I had never opened it before. I read the first 30 pages hoping for any psychological tips of value, but I realized quickly that reading on would only be a waste of time. From an ED recovered person's point of view, all the tips are just superficial ways ...more

I really liked this book. I've had it on my shelf for years and I guess it finally hit me. It is like a therapist in my house. I loved all of 101 tips because really, each was a therapy session that made me think and answer for myself why I think and do things the way I do.

This book was a very useful tool. Though I read this for a book club choice (a fitness book club), it had some very interesting and insightful questions and advice for those that are just starting out on their weight loss journey all the way to those that have been working out and eating healthier for years. I have been doing this for a little over a year and so many things popped into my head while asking myself some much needed and hard questions. I didn't think that I still harbored ill feeli ...more

Short chapters on little habits to increase your health.
This book has a different view of weight loss. Never mind counting calories, as the title states, there are 101 ways to think differently about eating, dieting, and dig a littler deeper into our own personal reasons for allowing ourselves to keep the weight.

You don't have to read this book cover to cover. Each idea is presented on one or two pages, so it's easy to flip through the book and pick different ideas to look at, and to focus on the ideas that work for you, leave the ones that don't.

So far, it's got a lot of great mental exercises for you to work on. For me, my weight is definitely a mental thing.
I got some great ideas from this book. I took a lot of notes and plan to use some of the ideas.
Short chapters on different ways to think about weight, diet, health.

Ever since I was a girl, I had only one career goal: to write for a living. And so I have--more than a thousand articles for national publications, 15 trade books, 24 editions of the leading college health textbook.

Along the way I fell--madly, gladly, giddily--in love with Italian. Years of passionate study led to LA BELLA LINGUA: My Love Affair with Italian, the World's Most Enchanting Language,
