I'm a sucker for diet fads. There are few things I want more than to lose 10 pounds in a week or tone my belly in time for bikini season.
But this isn't that.
The One-Day Way, by Chantel Hobbs (wife, mother of four, and author of Never Say Diet), is one-part motivational and one-part common-sense, easy-to-follow approach to losing "all the weight you want, one meal, one pound, one day at a time" (as the back cover says.
Hobbs is herself a testimony to the potential of her approach; she once weighed 350 pounds, and says she lost 200 pounds--and has kept off the weight--using the same tactics she prescribes in this book. She also includes in the book inspirational stories of others who have benefitted from her approach.
Check out the meal plans; they're actually doable.
Check out the exercises; they don't require a gym full of equipment, or the flexibility of a fourteen-year-old.
But especially take the time to savor the first half of the book, and absorb her emphasis on changing the way we think in order to change the way we live.
