Sometimes it's the simple choices-like switching diet soda for regular; selecting a less-caloric sandwich at the fast food joint; stopping at just one dip into the candy bowl; filling up on salad rather than bread before your main course; or taking the kids for a bike ride instead of hanging out in front of the TV-that make the pounds melt away almost effortlessly. Whether you're a junk food junkie, an emotional eater, or even a mindless muncher, "Good Housekeeping Drop 5 Pounds" offers hundreds of ideas for small and very doable changes in your diet that can add up to significant weight loss.

Review quote

"Based on "Good Housekeeping" magazine's popular "Drop 5 Pounds" column, this book has information arranged in manageable chunks to support achievable goals and 'is designed to reveal your diet traps so you can change your habits.' Registered dietician Jones ("The Grocery Cart Makeover"), with "Good Housekeeping" editor in chief Ellis, highlights five eating misbehaviors, including skipping meals and mindless munching. Throughout, there are specific tips to help eliminate bad habits, so once readers have completed the quick "Diet Decoder Quiz" at the beginning, they can focus their reading. The text is profusely illustrated with attractive full-color photographs and easy-to-read charts, lists, and text boxes. Jones offers simple recipes for healthy meals and lists diet-friendly choices from fast-food restaurants. VERDICT An effective, attractive, and informative ready reference diet manual. Readers will love the achievable results, and it is refreshing to have a book that does not expect great sacrifice and total lifestyle change. This is the guide many will pick up in 2011." --"Library Journal" (STARRED REVIEW)show more
