Awaken the Diet Within
From Overweight to Looking Great-If I Can Do It, So Can You
By Julia Griggs Havey  

     This book is not full of gimmicks that guarantee the reader will lose a lot of weight in a short period of time, but follows what Ms. Havey did for herself in order to lose a lot of weight. She is realistic in her goals and her advice, emphasizing that this is clearly her approach and that it may not work for everyone.

     She divides the book up into steps which she herself followed. She first looked at her life and saw what had happened to her (divorce) and what caused her to carry so much weight. She explains what she had to do in order to incorporate a healthy lifestyle: drinking water in place of soda and taking baby steps in exercise. She reemphasizes throughout the book that it is an ongoing and long process in order to lose weight in a healthy manner.

     Ms. Havey includes several different and healthy recipes that could appeal to any taste bud. She also includes resources that are helpful to anyone trying to lose weight. This book takes a fantastic and healthy approach to weight loss.
