I recently used coolrunning.com's  Couch Potato to 5K plan to start jogging and have since run two 5Ks. While that plan ultimately worked for me, I so wish I had discovered Run Your Butt Off!, from Runner’s World, first. The RYBO plan addressed the things that I found most challenging and would have made my journey more pleasant.

Firstly, the authors insist that you run very slowly. I thought I had been running slowly, but discovered otherwise the first time I ran with another person. The authors describe exactly what running slowly looks like and I can tell you first hand it makes all the

gorgeously-green.GIF I picked up The Gorgeously Green Diet, because I enjoyed Sophie Uliano’s first book, Gorgeously Green: 8 Simple Steps to an Earth-friendly Life. I was not trying to lose weight, but I was looking for ways to improve my diet.

Her mission is to “create outrageously delicious food with the freshest ingredients possible at the lowest price” and “… to create meals that are speedy and fun”. She offers three eating plans in different shades

Health at Every Size by Linda BaconIf you want to lose weight, achieve health, and live the life of your dreams—have I got a book for you! Many books offer that promise: just follow THIS diet and workout routine and you’ll magically shed pounds. The reality is it’s not that easy, to which I can personally attest.

I went on my first diet in third grade when my parents sent me to Weight Watchers. Never mind that both my parents are heavy themselves, as were all four of my grandparents. I suppose they thought they were too old to change their habits, but if I could be educated and encouraged to diet and exercise, there might be

The premise behind Water with Lemon is that it is a diet book told in the format of a novel. I appreciate the concept and can even say the story line had the potential to be very engaging. In a novel, however, I need a little more character development and a little less beating over the head with diet habits.

Having read my fair share of diet books, I’m confident in saying the eight habits laid out here are sound, doable actions that anyone should be able to understand and implement. And the authors came pretty close to meeting their goal of writing a different kind of diet book that is
