About the Book

You will never diet again.

Say goodbye to calorie counting, restrictive food bans, or other forced behaviors. In Mini Habits for Weight Loss, you will learn how to lose weight naturally in the precise way your body and brain are meant to change.

We've blamed ourselves for lack of discipline. That didn't help.

We've blamed calories, carbs, and fat. That didn't help.

We've blamed our diet formulas. That didn't help.

It's time we looked at the practice of dieting.

Nearly all diets are ineffective because they're based on dieting. Every person has a diet (noun), but it's only if you are trying to lose weight that you diet (verb). Dieting is eating and drinking sparingly or selectively to reduce your weight.

Are you fighting your own body and brain?

The brain resists dramatic behavioral shifts. Recognizing this and developing a strategy around it made the original Mini Habits the number-one selling self-help book in a number of countries. In Mini Habits for Weight Loss, you'll see that we also biologically resist such changes, which explains why most dieters and smoothie-cleanse aficionados lose weight in the short term, only to gain it all back (and more) when the body adjusts.

About the Author

Stephen Guise is driven by his desire to find the most effective behavior change strategies. To help others maximize their potential, he has developed an array of unconventional, result-driven ideas. In particular, his ideas of extreme willpower conservation, no-motivation-required action plans, multiple-cue habit formation, success-cycling, and "stupid small" steps form the unique foundation of Mini Habits, which is being published in more than a dozen languages.

About the Reviews

This book came out at the right time for me. People who are trying to lose weight, myself included, are often stuck in a very negative spiral of thinking about themselves. Guise's tone is so uplifting in this book, which has made a big difference to me from the first page.

There is one passage that really stood out to me: "Mainstream motivational theory states that, in order to enact change, one must simply "want it more."...it's a pity that we're not motivated enough to save our own lives and live better. But wait...the weight loss industry made $64 billion in 2014. When that much money is spent on something, it means public interest is through the thermosphere...people have willingly suffered and paid money trying to lose weight, and they are still being told their desire for change isn't strong enough. That's so wrong it's criminal...People have plenty of desire, they just need a smart strategy that doesn't rely on doing the impossible."

Guise is on our side! He gets it. I've never heard something like this said before. I've read other weight loss and self-help books that make you feel less than human; a lot of people just aren't patient or nice to you if you're overweight or depressed. But Guise never talks down to you. He's jovial and friendly. He jokes with you! And his ideas are so well-researched and well-reasoned that you can't help but feel hopeful.

*********************************

This shows the usual diets as the sham that they are and offers habits you can adopt for a lifetime. Time will tell if it works, seems you still need a bit of motivation to change your habits. But, it makes total sense and I have hope.

*********************************

I read this book. It makes a lot of sense. I stopped smoking last year, by focusing on not smoking one hour and one day at a time. I will become healthier and lose weight with the common sense strategies in this book; one hour and one day at a time. Wish me well, because that’s what I want to be. WELL
