Question: I'm looking for a book about diet/nutrition and/or exercise and maybe something about self-image. The catch: I don't want anything too "self help-y" because I won't take it seriously and I won't read it all the way through and it will do nothing for me. I don't want it to be a feel-good dime store psychology piece of crap... I'm not stupid and I don't need that kind of book. That being said, I also don't want something that's incredibly technical and scientific. I want something clear, to the point, eye-opening and truly helpful. I've checked out Skinny *****, but I honestly think I'd be slightly offended by it and I am not willing to become vegan. I'm at college and have mostly been eating a vegetarian diet. I'm in no way gaining the freshman fifteen, in fact I've lost a bit of weight since I've been here. However, it hasn't been in a healthy way; I skip meals and am kind of a finicky eater when I have to eat with a ton of people. My weight loss goals are pretty ambitious, and I have a long way to go. I just want to do it in a healthy way. I don't want to go from being overweight to losing weight because I don't eat. I doubt I'll develop an eating disorder, but I know that I can't sustain the diet I've been on the past month. I'm taking in around 600-800 calories daily and I do a lot of walking - I can't keep doing this, but I don't want to gain back the weight I've lost since I've been here. Tips? Book ideas? Help me?

I read a book my senior year of college, major was dietetics. As if I didn't have enough to read, and already didn't have a million diet and nutritional facts going through my head, when I saw this book and started reading it, I couldn't put it down. It was Intuitive Eating by Tribole and Resch. It just made sense. As a dietitian, I used the methods in this book, along with the conventional methods I learned in college to help my patients. They loved me! They were so happy with the results and happy to make the lifestyle changes they needed to promote their health. But you really do have to apply both methods to get results. You know you should never skip meals, that just puts your body in conservation and then when you do eat, your body is super efficient and hoards the calories you eat, in preparation for the next time you starve it. Meanwhile, in the non-fed state, your body won't let go of calories. A car won't run with out gas. So don't skip meals, give your body the fuel so it can function. If you truly are eating only 600-800 calories, that is far too little. You never should eat less than 1200. Your body needs calories for everything that is going on your body; breathing, digestion, cellular function, all your organs need to function.....it takes a lot just to "live". Now, if your actually do any kind of activity, that burns on top of the calories it takes, just to live. So 1200 is best, and go from there if you have increased exercise. Keep a 3 day food diary so you know exactly what you are eating. Most people underestimate what they eat in a day. Write down everything, even that spoonful of ice cream and the one jelly bean....those little things add up. Be precise about your portion sizes, there is a big difference between 1 cup of cereal and a mixing bowl full of cereal if you know what I mean. There are several sources that have calorie estimates of food, from online to books in the library. This way, you get an idea of how much you really are consuming and make your tweaks from there. You can't know where to go, if you don't know where you are in the first place, right? Try this book, use it with the conventional methods of diet, and I think you will "get there". We want you to get there safely though. Make sure your desired weight is a healthy weight for you. Good luck!

Hi, losing weight by not eating is not the way to go. Yes you will lose weight in the beginning, but a lot of the weight that you will lose will come from muscle, and not fat. This means that your body will start to lose tone. Apart from that, you will be missing out on a lot of valuable nutrients, if you don't take in enough food, and this will eventually lead to the weakening of the immune system, leaving you open to illnesses. The best way to lose weight in a healthy way is to burn calories instead of just decreasing them. This can be done with exercise, and changing the way that you eat. Most people will eat 2-3 times a day. This normally means taking in more calories in each sitting than your body can use. When this happens, your body will store a lot of calories as fat, unless you burn them off with exercise. A far more healthy way to eat is to eat smaller meals but eat more often. The smaller meals have fewer calories, and this means that your body will not have many left to store after it has used what it needs. Plus when you are getting regular calories throughout the day, your metabolism works more effectively, and avoids that dreaded starvation mode. I hope that was helpful, there is a book that I would suggest that you take a look at, it is one of the most widely used books of its kind online today, and has helped a ton of people to lose weight without having to starve themselves. Get more info at the resource below, take care.

understand you mentioned no vampire books...however I consider Twilight is excellent! It's a well ebook and it is in a people factor of view, no longer a vampires! It's additionally a film. There's: Twilight; New Moon; Eclipse; and Breaking Dawn... Though Breaking Dawn isn't out within the cinema's but... If no longer Twilight, then how approximately a few Jaqueline Wilson books? They're top notch!!! And rather humorous. Hope I helped(:
