The Obesity Code by Dr. Jason Fung

Brain-Powered Weight Loss by Eliza Kingsford
This product was recommended by Eliza Kingsford from ElizaKingsford
Losing weight and successfully maintaining it over the long term is not as much about what you put in your stomach; it’s more about what’s happening in the brain. In Brain-Powered Weight Loss, psychotherapist and weight management expert Eliza Kingsford shows that more than 90 percent of people who go on diet programs (even healthy ones) fail or eventually regain the weight because they have a dysfunctional relationship with food. Changing this relationship by changing the way you think about and behave around food is what it takes to permanently achieve weight-loss success. Kingsford’s 11-step first-of-its-kind program enlists dozens of mind-altering and behavior-changing exercises and techniques to help you lose weight, and keep it off for good.

The Daniel Plan by Rick Warren
This product was recommended by Alexia Anast from AlexiaAnast
I highly recommend the Daniel Plan for both men and women looking to have a healthier life overall. This isn’t a “get thin quick” fad diet. It focuses on your mental health, physical fitness, and what’s best for YOUR body specifically. I started reading and working through this book with a group of women (you can pay for videos that go along with this program). All of us are getting something different from the book because our goals aren’t the same. Our various goals include losing weight, avoiding food allergies, having more energy, and cooking at home more. It’s a great plan that is customizable based on your needs. This is the best way to build up positive habits and get long term results.
Incremental Improvements by Mike Brodsky
This product was recommended by Mike Brodsky from Incremental Improvements
The author shares ideas and strategies for making improvements in many aspects of one’s life. For anyone who who has struggled to lose weight and keep it off, the concept of “incremental improvements” can be useful to create new habits and change behaviors. The lessons taught in this book show the reader how to take various goals, and break them down into more manageable tasks and actions. The chapters on diet and exercise are most relevant to weight loss, but the reader may actually benefit in other ways, as well, by reading some of the other chapters. This book includes lots of helpful ideas regarding personal and professional development and self-improvement.
