The Best Life Diet
From the bestselling author of Get With the Program! and Bob Greene’s Total Body Makeover comes The Best Life Diet, a lifetime plan for losing weight and keeping it off. Bob Greene helped Oprah achieve her dramatic weight loss, and he can help you too. You’ll eat the same delicious food that Oprah enjoys, and, just like Oprah, you’ll have Bob to encourage you at every step. Unlike a celebrity, however, you don’t need to hire a staff of experts to aid and advise you, because Bob’s plan, easily tailored to an array of tastes, lifestyles, and activity levels, acts as your personal trainer and private nutritionist. Just open the book and let Bob help you get started down the path toward your best possible life.
What sets Bob apart from all the other experts who claim to have plans that work is that he admits that weight loss is difficult: seventeen years of watching people struggle to lose weight on a seemingly endless string of trendy crash diets, only to backslide and regain the pounds they’ve shed, have taught him that dropping pounds is not simply a numbers game. By acknowledging that it is not simple laziness but a complicated web of social rituals, cultural expectations, and habits that drives people to gain weight, Greene is able to attack the problem of weight loss realistically and offer not a short-lived, quick-fix formula, but a long-term program that accounts for the challenges and constraints of the real world.
Divided into three phases, The Best Life Diet gives you the tools you need to change your life. In each phase, you’ll be asked to reexamine the decisions you make on a daily basis and gradually alter your habits to achieve lasting results. The book also includes easy-to-follow meal plans that make it simple to meet your daily energy and nutrient requirements, whether you are on the run and breakfast means a quick smoothie or you have time to shop for fresh produce and make something special.
You’ll watch the weight disappear as you learn to prepare festive and flavorful dishes like Fire-Roasted Tomato-Shrimp Veracruz, Chicken Sausage Jambalaya, or Flank Steak with Chimichurri Topping and indulge in desserts like Roasted Peaches with Ricotta and Almonds or Apple Rhubarb Walnut Crisp. And for each delicious recipe, there is a detailed nutritional analysis, so you know exactly what you are eating and how it fits into your personal eating plan.
Most important, Bob’s plan doesn’t end once you’ve lost the weight. Instead, it gives you the tools you need to make living your best life second nature, because for Greene, a diet is not something you go “on” or “off” but a set of guidelines that will help you claim the life you deserve.

Walk Away the Pounds: The Breakthrough 6-Week Program That Helps You Burn Fat, Tone Muscle, and Feel Great Without Dieting
Twenty-five-year fitness industry veteran Leslie Sansone, whose videos have been megahits for the shopping network QVC, shares a nonintimidating, friendly workbook that promises to help overweight adults (she targets women, though men could certainly benefit from her advice, too) drop pounds and pick up energy. “Walking just thirty minutes a day, three times a week,” she says, “reduces the risk of death from natural causes by 55%.” That being fit will help you live longer isn’t news, but Sansone’s simple approach is refreshing. She details a six-week program that combines walking and basic strength training, promising readers they’ll burn calories, lose fat, firm muscle, boost energy and reduce stress.
With its daily log and continual encouragement, the book will best suit those new to exercise who aren’t sure how or where to begin and need constant assurance (though Sansone does include a power walk program for readers who are already walking regularly or have completed the basic program). She interweaves her program notes with personal stories from women who’ve successfully “walked away the pounds” (20, 60 and even 100 pounds). This nonthreatening, accessible exercise plan should be a boon for those who are reluctant or unable to practice more intense exercise.
The 5 Factor Diet
Every diet plan has a gimmick, but Pasternak’s is simpler than most: the number five. The author’s “five factor” system (previously seen in his 2005 book, 5-Factor Fitness) includes five small meals a day, five workouts a week and a list of five factor foods-basics like egg whites, lean poultry and beans-in each of five food categories. More than 100 pages of low-calorie-if not particularly imaginative-recipes are included (such as Chicken and Rice Miso Soup and Roast Beef with Carrot-Pear Slaw), each of which include five ingredients and take five minutes to prepare.
The in-demand author, whose clients’ testimonials are scattered throughout the book (Kanye West and John Mayer among them), never fails to sound cheery, so even if daily rounds of five-factor strength-training sound daunting, his liveliness will help give readers courage: “Don’t worry, my plan is the easiest, most effective exercise program you’ll ever use.” Though it might help to have the schedule of a Hollywood star-getting in five meals a day presents its own challenge for busy nine-to-fivers-his exercise plan is mercifully brief, the diet itself is flexible, and he doesn’t require giving up any foods. In fact, Pasternak gives readers one “cheat day” a week-the better to demonstrate “how well the 5-Factor Diet is working.”
