My brother wrote this book! When my brother first mentioned to me that he was going to write a book about dieting I thought he was joking. But, the man has had experience in this arena. As he writes in the book how he has gained and lost 17,000 pounds over the last 20 years or so.
I obviously have known my brother my whole life, and although we live in different states, our years of struggling to lose weight, or thinking of losing weight is very similar.
He had success on Atkins, losing 60+ pounds in about 9 months. I too, had success with Weight Watchers, lost 70 pounds, but as happens to so many people, we both watched ourselves gain a lot back. For both of us, years later we are still trying to find the “magic” that made us so successful at losing that time around.
My brother has come to an excellent conclusion about dieting. Diets don’t work. It doesn’t matter if its Atkins, Weight Watchers, the Zone diet, South Beach etc. Yes, people lose weight, but its not the diet, its the person losing the weight that did the work.
The person who lost the weight decided to not eat fast food, or cave in to eating cookies at work, or chose to exercise vs. not exercise. They may think it was the “diet” that did it, but what made the magic was within themselves.
My brother and I are still fighting the fight. We e-mail each other on our successes and losses, and I think as long as you can see that YOU are the person who can lose weight, it doesn’t matter which diet you pick, you can do it.
This book is really funny. There were lots of parts of the book that I literally laughed out loud. Reading about his Thanksgiving to New Years saga every year, I never knew about some of the things he wrote about. So, if you want to give a fellow dieter a very funny book about dieting, or just read it for your own pleasure, you will not be disappointed.
