My review:
With Jen Brewers background as a registered dietitian she not only tells you what works but why it works. There is practical, common sense, easy-to-do tips. Like she says, start with a few of her tips, ones that you can handle. Mold them into your life and make permanent changes. My favorite part, one that my husband and I talk about all the time, any diet works if you consume less calories than you burn. It's all about making smart choices and lifestyle changes.

The book includes: 25 lifestyle changing tips, a sample food journal, nutrition checklists, a meal-planning worksheet, charts to determine your caloric need, delicious sample recipes and more.

About the book:
Only a permanent change will bring permanent results. The good news is you can do it! Using only four core principles along with a wealth of tools and recipes to get you started, this refreshing book is the perfect tool for anyone who wants to get off the diet rollercoaster and maintain a healthy, happy life.

Buy it: 

I have one copy (sent to me from Plain Sight & Cedar Fort) that I'd like to give away to one of my readers.

I tried to comment but somehow I totally messed it up. So I'm going to try here. My best weight loss tip is that you can't just exercise. you have to eat right & exercise. The eating is where you really lose the weight.

It is important to eat right, exercise and drink plenty of water. That works for me

Doing something small to be more healthy is better than doing nothing at all. Little things you do add up! Examples of small, easy things I sometimes do: park a little farther away from the store, replace oil with applesauce when baking, do 10 jumping jacks several times a day, etc.
