Overview

      In Just 10 LBS, intervention specialist Brad Lamm brings a fresh eye to weight loss, focusing not on the what of eating, but on the how and why. As a companion piece to The Dr. Oz Show’s major, year-long initiative to change the health of America, this book discards the notion of overhauling life with the vague dream of being thin and challengesthe reader to focus on losing just 10 pounds.

      What Lamm understands is that managing weight isn’t just about doing crunches, running miles, or cutting calories; in fact, one of the most powerful parts of success is generally overlooked—a healthy relationship with oneself is key to any weight-loss program. In Just 10 LBS, Lamm outlines ten easy steps to help readers heal their relationship with themselves and thus change their relationship with food, breaking destructive cycles of disordered and unhealthy eating.

      Covering everything from body image to restrictive beliefs to developing a quiet, focusing daily practice, Lamm discusses all aspects of the emotional and self-esteem issues surrounding weight and food. And he puts them together into a 10-step program that begins with identifying your eating style—emotional eater, pleasure eater, energy eater, external eater, or critical eater—and ends with a discussion on the importance of “paying it forward,” or giving back the gifts you’ve gotten. Also included is an action-oriented 30-day plan to help readers get a jump start on their weight-loss efforts.

      The effective, easy-to-follow steps in Just 10 LBS will help readers reclaim their power over food; open emotional blockages that clutter their lives; and create a lifestyle that emphasizes the mind, body, emotions, relationships, and spirit.

I would say that I have read every book on the subject and this one surpasses them all. Workbook is downloadable. Easy to work from. The only negative thing I would say is that perhaps the format of an ebook is not the best for this type of book when you want to review a section. To me it may be easier to flip through real pages. For that reason, I may buy the hard copy to. This book is so worth it.

I've lost and gained the same 40 pounds most of my life, since high school actually. Sloppy, emotional eating. The first part of Brad's book is a diet (The Love-Centered Diet) and the back two-thirds is how to change the "Hunger in the heart and the head that leads you back to food." I totally related to this, and have lost 27 pounds since January 1 with Just 10. My wife has lost 19 pounds. I didn't need another diet. I needed to change the way I've been boredom eating for years. FYI, Brad says boredom isn't a feeling but if you go deeper you'll discover the underlying feeling there is disconnect or loneliness often. We have given this book to five relatives now too and as a family we're changing how we eat. Take care all. Hope this review is helpful and encouraging. Rob

So many books promise you will blast fat off in a week or drop pounds effortlessly...not Brad Lamm's book. He gently, like a brother would, urges you to rethink how you look at food. He shares his own struggles and asks you to change your feelings around food. Calories eaten and exercise does nor always equal weight loss and Brad delves into the other component...the spiritual component. To make peace with food and drop the foods that do not serve you and allow the weight to be released. This is not a quick fix diet, this is a way of eating that will serve you well for the rest of your life. If you want to really, truly, lose the weight and then keep it off, while maintaining a new way of eating and living...this is the book for you.
