Today, 2008 is 7/12ths complete, and summer weight loss has only a month to go. It’s time to get back to basics and review those 2008 new years resolutions, goals, and weight loss articles that proliferated in January.
Time Magazine wrote a piece titled: Weighing the New Diet Books which does a good review of the 2008 diet books.
I’m amazed at all the diet books out there, and they keep coming. Of course, I am tempted to write my own diet book. In fact, I have two working titles and I’ve been brainstorming outlines for a while. Besides that, What are the New Notable Diet Books of 2008 for weight loss
- Eat This, Not That!, By David Zinczenko with Matt Goulding, 304 pages.
- How to Eat Like a Hot Chick, By Jodi Lipper and Cerina Vincent, 168 pages. (Such a short book, What! Do Hot Chicks not eat much ?)
- Skinny Bitch in the Kitch, By Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin, 192 pages.
- Slim for Live, By Dr. Gillian, 223 pages.
- The GenoType Diet, By Dr. Peter J. D’Adamo with Catherin Whitney, 317 pages.
- The All-New Atkins Advantage, By Dr. Stuart L. Trager with Colette Heimowitz, 362 pages.
- The No-Crave Diet, By Dr. Penny Kendall-Reed and Dr. Stephen Reed, 224 pages.
- The Spectrum, By Dr. Dean Ornish, 386 pages.
- The Ultimate TEA Diet, By Mark “Dr. Tea” Ukra, 306 pages.
- Women’s Health Perfect Body Diet, By Cassandra Forsthe 356 pages.
A couple of notables missing from Time Magazine’s list:
- The Flat Belly Diet, by Liz Vaccariello
- The 12 Second Sequence: Shrink Your Waist in 2 Weeks by Jorge Cruise, 256 pages.
- The Advanced Mediterranean Diet: Lose Weight, Feel Better, Live Longer, 304 pages.
Let me give you a hint (since my book is not yet published). I think you are what you read, and you are what you eat. So, if you read books about science, you’ll become a scientist. If you read books about diet and nutrition, you’ll soon adapt those habits as well. So, you can never read too many books. You’ll always learn something. However, It does not matter how many diet books you read, you still need to DO! Action needs to conincide with your reading Exercise, Fitness, Weight Loss, Diet, or even Cooking Books. If you don’t do, you’ll never reap the benefits.
What are some of my books in my Library that I re-read every so often?
I still recommend the free Hack Diet Book as a great starting place. For other great books, I recommend the following:
- 8 Minutes in the Morning: A Simple Way to Shed up to 2 Pounds a Week Guaranteed by Jorge Cruise and Anthony Robbins
- The 3-Hour Diet: Lose up to 10 Pounds in Just 2 Weeks by Eating Every 3 Hours! by Jorge Cruise
- The Abs Diet: The Six-Week Plan to Flatten Your Stomach and Keep You Lean for Life by David Zinczenko and Ted Spiker
- Mindless Eating: Why We Eat More Than We Think by Brian Wansink
- The Cardio-Free Diet by Jim Karas
- You: On A Diet: The Owner’s Manual for Waist Management by Mehmet C. Oz and Michael F. Roizen
- The Volumetrics Eating Plan: Techniques and Recipes for Feeling Full on Fewer Calories by Barbara J. Rolls
