im confused, for the people on here that say its a fad diet, this isnt a diet its a lifestyle change. im a fan of body for life myself but dr phil has the same principles. if you want to lose 10-20 pounds for a vacation or reunion then go on a diet but if you want to get in shape and stay there you exercise and change your eating habits permantly. you cant give up fatty and sweet foods, lose the weight, than start eating them again and get mad cause it all came back. if you want to look and feel great it takes work all the time not for a month and then your done

If you lose 20 lbs fast and then gain it back it's because you didn't change your LIFESTYLE. This is a book for a fast weight loss right now. After you have lost that first 20 lbs., then I would recommend reading his Ultimate Weight Solution book to keep you going slowly for the rest of your life. The reason people gain it back is because they lose 20 get excited and start thinking they can eat pizza again... You have to make a life change and his 2 books do it for sure!!!!

Although Dr. Phil says its not a fad diet, it is...you are cutting out certain things and once you eat them again the weight comes back on. I lost 20 lbs in a matter of a month and gained it all back.

This is a useful reference book for the diet because it has a great summary of the plan and because it is filled with a lot of nutritional information about different foods. Definite recommendation for people on the diet plan.

I have struggled with being overweight for the last 20 years. I got a few pointers here that have more than paid for my investment in this weight loss guide. Dr. Phil dispenses great advice.

I have a 10 month old son, and I have lost all of the 50 pounds I gained.I didn't buy the book to learn how to lose weight. I bought it so I could learn how to eat healthy and maintain a healthy lifestyle.I loved it and I would recommend it to anyone.

This is an exceptional diet guide in general and especially in addition to Dr. Phil's book. He briefly but clearly reviews his excellent 7 keys to losing weight, includes a 3 stage plan, has lists of foods to eat, menus, and then a big list of nutritional information for lots of items (cal, prot, carbs, fats/sat.fats, fiber, sugar, sodium). There is a lot of great information in this guide! Overall, Dr. Phil's plan is different because he offers pointers and psychological helpers to the reader. His diet is also a more well-rounded program of good quality foods (lower sugar, lower sat fats, better carbs...) and does, especially at first, have tight calorie control. The latter stages of his diet and maintenance parts allow more quantity of good foods, but sensibility is always key. GREAT! Also, to help with any diet, I strongly recommend 'Effortless Wellbeing' by Evan Finer, because it helps to make me feel better all of the time, makes me more focused and strong. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! EXCELLENT!!

This makes Dr. Phil's Ultimate Weight Solution a no-fail solution. Even though UWS gives guidelines, this book gives everything you could ever want to know about what to eat and not to eat. It even includes a jump-start program to let you see results early so you will stick with it! This is no-nonsense information in a diet that you could live with forever.

Great companion to a great diet book. This book not only provides great diet information, but also provides practical steps to make sticking to the diet more realistic. This book compliments the seven keys to healthy eating by serving as a quick, easy reference guide, providing information on counting calories for high- and low-response cost foods, controlling portion sizes, identifying high-response cost and high-yield foods, and specific menu planning for meals and snacks. Dr. Phil says we all have a decision to make when it comes to our diets. He's right, but knowing we have a choice doesn't make it any easier to choose wisely. As I mentioned, one aspect of this book that I really like is that it not only provides a diet, but information on what's required to stick to it. Having said that, I still would like more information on how to apply what's learned and make it last. I'm convinced that the only way to stick to any diet is to make healthy eating part of your lifestyle by making it a habit This book is a wealth of great information, but it could use more practical advice on sticking to these principles of healthy eating. My fitness trainer gave me a book entitled 'The Power of Habit.' It provides an easy-to-implement, step-by-step process for making healthy eating a permanent, automatic habit. It teaches you how to take these principles for healthy eating and make them part of your lifestyle. 'The Ultimate Weight Solution' and 'The Ultimate Weight Solution Food Guide' provide 'what to do' and 'why', 'The Power of Habit' gives you a way to 'stick to it'. I agree with one of the reviews for 'The Ultimate Weight Solution: 'Dr. Phil's plan requires discipline and hard work.' Any healthy diet does. What the book and the food guide could use more of is advice on how to stick to it.

This book gave me a lot of insight into the behaviors that cause me to overeat. Unlike other weight loss books, it does not push a particular diet. This book was about behavior modification, and it really made a difference in my life.
