Cartoonist Carol Lay recounts her experiences with yoyo dieting and documents (in full-colour panels) how she has finally achieved lasting (several years) success. Her methods are nothing new - calorie-counting and physical exercise - but her upbeat style may be all the encouragement someone needs. Lay pays special attention to the psychological pitfalls that await dieters and has many tips to counter them. Easy exercises, sample menus and lots of recipes are included.

More a weight loss memoir than a how-to-lose-weight guide, this is the perfect book for anyone who feels like they've read EVERYTHING on the subject.

An interesting look at her life, her weight loss plan, with good information, this was in a format that I never could have imagined. A quick read, but inspiring...now that I'm refreshed I'm ready for some more diet books.
