I appreciated Helen's human struggle with the problem with weight loss. Her steeled resolve in recapturing her "fighting weight" was a great example of how difficult it can be, easy yet problematic rationalizations, and ultimate determination to change the game and achieve her goal. This has been an inspiration to me.

Any additional comments?
I have read my fair share of diet books in my lifetime and I was sure that this would be another "Miracle" way to lose weight. Well... it was not! This book has nothing to do with miracles; it is all about common sense; about making the right changes in your life. It teaches you that making the right choices when it comes to food and exercise can be hard and that you should not fool yourself to think that this is only a temporary change... this is a life change.
"Your overall goal is to learn to give your body what it needs to be healthy -- not to live by numbers and obsessions. Constantly thinking about food choices, learning better habits, and educating yourself about portion sizes are all a necessary part of learning your new lifestyle but once they are ingrained in you, then you should not have to think about things quite so hard."
Helen Ryan shares her own experience and struggles. She does not hide her failures and is grateful of her successes. Her book was definitely food for thoughts and I already started to apply some of her suggestions. I still have a long way before I get to where I would like to be, but I honestly got a good kick in the butt from reading this book.
