Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Both inspirational and practical . . ." Publishers Weekly

"Ideal for those who are serious about changing their eatting habits. This book delivers a whopping dose of motivation for any dieter." Good Housekeeping

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Following up on her bestselling Thin for Life, Fletcher records and organizes the experiences of 200 men and women who have successfully maintained over a number of years a significant weight loss (an average of 64 pounds). Fletcher calls her subjects, who have kept off 20 or more pounds for more than 10 years, masters. In Part I, she catalogues the strategies they have used to hold on to their weight loss, offering five main 'food secrets,'" e.g., 'Want To Be Thin More Than You Want to Eat the `Wrong' Foods'; 'Fix Your Full Button.' Each tip is fleshed out with stories from 'the masters' demonstrating how it has helped them.

The second section offers 21 days of menus for low-fat, reduced-calorie dishes for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert, as well as snacks. Part III offers 100 recipes (with food counts) from the masters for recipes that have become mainstays on their tables. Included are recipes for Meatballs with Parsley and Sage, mixing ground round steak with grated potatoes; Crepes with Chicken and Mushroom Filling; Sweet Potato Puff with bananas; Deep Dish Pumpkin Pie, with a graham-cracker crust. The accompanying list, 'Tricks of the Low-Fat Cooking Trade,' is particularly helpful. As both inspiration and practical guide, this volume is likely to prove a great ally to readers who know that keeping off the pounds they lose is the larger part of a weight loss campaign.

    Wish I would have had this book pounds ago!!!

    This has been one of the most helpful books on weight loss I have ever read. It is so encouraging. There is no mumbo jumbo about food analysis, or body type etc... Just plain good advise from formerly fat people, who have mastered their control over food. Virtually every possible 'threatening' food situation is covered from food pushers to having a spouse who is not supportive are covered within these pages. I read it cover to cover. There are great food snack ideas, as well as recipes from real people who have depended upon a certain dish to help them lose or maintain their weight. One suggestion: 'Read this book with a highlighter. Highlight the noteworthy quotes, then go back and put the quotes on cards and post them up around the house, car or office.' This book is that good. Wow!!!
