Publisher's Summary

You will never diet again.
Say goodbye to calorie counting, restrictive food bans, or other forced behaviors. In Mini Habits for Weight Loss, you will learn how to lose weight naturally in the precise way your body and brain are meant to change.
We've blamed ourselves for lack of discipline. That didn't help.
We've blamed calories, carbs, and fat. That didn't help.
We've blamed our diet formulas. That didn't help.
It's time we looked at the practice of dieting.
Nearly all diets are ineffective because they're based on dieting. Every person has a diet (noun), but it's only if you are trying to lose weight that you diet (verb). Dieting is eating and drinking sparingly or selectively to reduce your weight.
It doesn't work. If you've tried dieting, you know that.
Even the "perfect diet" with the right foods will fail if it's approached from the traditional dieting perspective. Since weight loss experts are more concerned with biology than neuroscience, we get brilliant discussions on nutrition followed by the same dumb suggestion to "immediately start eating completely different foods than the ones you're habitually used to eating, and give up everything else."
Are you fighting your own body and brain?
The brain resists dramatic behavioral shifts. Recognizing this and developing a strategy around it made the original Mini Habits the number-one selling self-help book in a number of countries. In Mini Habits for Weight Loss, you'll see that we also biologically resist such changes, which explains why most dieters and smoothie-cleanse aficionados lose weight in the short term, only to gain it all back (and more) when the body adjusts.

Get this audiobook. You won't regret it!

I had already read about 35% of the Kindle version of this book when I got this audiobook. I went back to the start and listened from the beginning. It was worth it to review Guise's ideas, and the reader Dan Penz is excellent.
The author's writing style is extremely conversational, so in the hands of a good narrator like Penz, this book is very easy to listen to and understand. I usually listen on 1.25 or 1.5 speed, depending on how familiar I am with the content. This book was still listenable at 2.0 speed.
Stephen Guise is definitely onto something about how habits are the key to achieving and maintaining a healthy weight. He seems to understand with amazing insight the very complicated factors relating to people's relationship with the foods we choose to eat.
I read Guise's first book, "Mini Habits." It was good, but I didn't end up adopting any mini habits after listening to that book. I feel that in this book, Guise has landed on the perfect topic to encourage readers to adopt the mini habits strategy. I am now faithfully pursuing two health-related mini habits, as well as a third unrelated habit. The health-related habits have given me a vision of the power of mini habits.

The best approach for weightloss

If you could sum up Mini Habits for Weight Loss in three words, what would they be?

Small Daily Habits

What other book might you compare Mini Habits for Weight Loss to and why?

This is similar to Mini Habits, but it details very specific habits that will help you lose weight and keep it off.

What about Daniel Penz’s performance did you like?

Excellent narration, doesn't put you to sleep.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I was impressed by all the research that went into this book - the majority of the nutrition information aligns with what I've read in my own research.

Any additional comments?

I encourage people to do their own research on dairy. I believe the author is correct that if you choose to partake, full fat is the way to go... However, I would argue that it is much better to leave dairy off your plate & out of your glass!
