You’ve seen Susan Powter on her phenomenally successful “Stop the Insanity” infomercial, on the Home show, and on The Susan Powter Show, bringing her message of health, hope and wellness to millions. Now in this runaway bestseller she gives women everywhere the step-by-step motivation to take control of their lives.
What is insanity?
·A multimillion-dollar diet industry that fails to help women lose weight permanently
·A fitness industry that excludes the unfit
·Women hating the way they look and feel
After her divorce, Susan Poweter fell into a “fat come” that left her fat, unfit, and depressed. At more than 240 pounds, she courageously turned to the “experts”—the diet and fitness industries—for help. But she found, as millions of other have, that starvation and deprivation don’t work, and that the diet and fitness industries work against women, setting them up for failure, ruining their health, taking their money, and giving them temporary, short-term answers. Then on her own Susan Powter discovered how to eat, breath, and move, to lose weight permanently and regain her health, strength, and sanity.

This is by far the best book on diet control i have ever read. This is good sense easy to read and follow book on food and eating. I love to share this book. I have bought several copies that have been shared and still circulating.
What do you see? Not much. Most pictures hide the face & the one that's supposed to be showing rolls of fat??? All I saw was a very dark shirt on a very skinny neck & face !!! Please!!!! She's a good talker waiting for all desperate women to give her their money.
Stop the insanity focuses on issues that the medical profession, for many, many years, either did not, could not, or would not address. As I read Susan Powter's book, numerous times it caused me to reflect on my education and the history of the medical profession. The entire curriculum in nursing school continually teaches the soon-to-be nurse to see his/her client as a whole person. Until recently (the last ten years or so), medical doctors were taught to treat DISEASES/DISORDERS, not people. This could partially account for the bad taste (pardon the pun) that is in Susan Powter's mouth for the medical profession. Susan drives home some very real and valid points about both the medical profession and the diet industry. If you want a book that will get you to understand in simple, easy terms what YOU need and CAN DO every day to change your life, one that is written by someone who not only 'tells it like it is,' but, has been there, then this is the book for you!!!

Finally, someone tells us, IT'S OKAY TO EAT. This woman makes sense, and her personal success proves that the program works.
This is a have to read book for anyone who has ever dieted. The inspiration is unbelievable. I lost 5 pounds before I even finished the book by following her own steps and guidance. The story in itself is great!
