The Thin Commandments Diet The 10 No-Fail Strategies for Permanent Weight Loss

By Stephen Gullo, Ph. D

Rodale Books. As New in As New dust jacket; Would be new but dust jacket has slight . shelf wear.. 2005. Hardcover. 1579548989 . 1.0 x 9.25 x 6.25; 336 pages; This sequel to Dr. Gullo's previous book Thin Tastes Better, picks up where the first book left off. The author emphasizes strategy over will power. For instance, he suggests taking a breath mint to twarth sugar craving. He also suggests various low carbohydrate snacks which unfortunately are difficult to find and are quite expensive. The first part of the book tackles strategy which is probably the most helpful part of the book. He discusses: 1. Think historically, not just calorically. This helps identify food triggers. 2. Slips should teach you, not defeat you. 3. The problem might be in the food, not in you. The second part of the book outlines ABC Eating Plan which starts with a 10 day turbo charge diet designed for fast weight loss. .

Rippee, MD and Weight Watchers who teamed up to produce this book on weight management, approach the subject by busting 10 common diet myths. By elaborating on these myths, the authors emphasize healthy living. For example, myth # 3: Willpower is the key to successful wieght loss. Dr. Rippee explains will power and want power and how a spark, negative or positive such as a cruel remark or wanting to lose weight for a wedding, can spark the will power (" the mental strength to set limits for yourself") to work on the initial weight loss. However, a realistic sense of want power (desire and motivation) is needed for sustained weight management. At the end of the chapters , a list of action steps is given. .

The Starch Blocker Diet The Safe, New Way to Eat the Foods You Love and Lose Weight

By Steven Rosenblatt, M. D. , Ph. D. and Cameron Stauth

Harper Collins. New in New dust jacket; New but with remainder mark and slight shelf wear.. 2003. Stated First Edition. Hardcover. 0060548231 . 1.25 x 9.25 x 6.15; 366 pages; The Starch Blocker Diet written by Steven Rosenblatt and Cameron Stauth takes from research on alpha amylase, an enzyme (produced by the pancreas) which breaks down tarches into simple sugars. The book proposes that by taking a starch blocker before a meal, you can actually eat the usual carbohydrates without converting them into sugars and thus, calories. Alpha amylase blocker research began in the 1970's with Howard Hughes' research company. Later, extensive research was done at the Mayo Clinic, not for weight loss but for diabetes management. Various preparations of alpha amylase inhibitors were tried and the more recent ones contain Phaseolamin 2250 taken from small kidney beans. The book will be attractive to dieters who crave carbohydrates as it allows normal or even high carbohydrate intake. .
