My fave is called 'Don't eat your feelings'

It was a Weight Watchers one that I ordered over the Inetrnet.

It was quite cheap and very practical.

Jillian Michael's from The Biggest Loser's "Winning By Losing". It's fantastic. So practical, no fad diets or cr*p, breaks it down really simply. It's what got me off my butt after my plateau (and then putting on 6kg while comfy in a relationship) and got me to lose the last of my weight :)

Ok so its probably not the type of reply you were meaning, but i brought a very cute book called 'dieting causes brain damage' its by bradley trevor greive, you know the fellow that did the blue day book? Anyway it has really cute animal pics and some words on dieting and exercise etc, its not gonna help you lose any weight or teach you anything new, but it is uplifting and light hearted, and oh so cute!! :D

Dr Phil's 'Ultimate Weightloss Solution' and 'Body For Life' - both have good bits to take away with you.
