Drop 5 lbs: The Small Changes Big Results Diet....Review & Giveaway!

I know I am not the only one sitting here in sweats regretting a whole lot of what I piled in my mouth yesterday!  The good news is what's done is done and you can make some small changes to help you get out of the sweats!  There is a new book that can help you do it too....Drop 5 lbs:  The Small Changes Big Results Diet from Good Housekeeping.  I am not a big diet girl but this book has some great tips for a healthy lifestyle and for getting rid of those stubborn last few pounds (or those  pounds we all packed on yesterday!!).  Read on...

Straight from Good Housekeeping's wildly popular column, Drop 5 Pounds is a practical approach to dieting that requires only small changes to net big results. Whether you’re hoping to shimmy back into skinny jeans, look your best for a wedding, or keep the extra flab away, these smart, easy-to-follow strategies can help you lose weight quickly and easily. And since GH is committed to safe, healthy weight loss, you’re more likely to keep the pounds off in the long run. 

HERE'S HOW TO DROP 5 POUNDS IN JUST TWO WEEKS!
o Start with a self-quiz to diagnose your diet pitfalls
o Use our Diet Makeovers to end Diet Disasters
o Steal our Special Diet Tricks for Meal Skippers, Nonstop Nibblers, Liquid Calorie Lovers, Emotional Eaters, and Junk Food Junkies
o Mix and match our Drop 5 advice to change your diet according to your tastes and habits
o Choose from dozens of fat-blasting recipes to drop 5 pounds

I was very excited to crack this book open and when I got started I found some great tips right away.   After I took the quiz and was determined to be a Junk Food Junkie I was more easily able to identify my dietary pitfalls as well as arm myself with the tools to be able to better head them off.  The book also included some delicious recipes (hello peanut butter pudding!) and some great workout routines.  I particularly enjoyed the section on eating well while eating out (yup, I AM a junk food junkie!).

I think Drop 5 lbs is an excellent tool in  losing those last few pounds but, even more importantly, living a healthy and reasonable lifestyle.  I was happy to learn I CAN have my cake and eat it too....just not the whole cake!  You can pick up your copy today on Amazon (they have it listed at 40% off right now...steal!)...

I love sweets. My downfall is baking and then having leftovers in the house. Right now I have left over pie just calling my name. :)

My biggest downfall is sugar. The chocolate and candy things are what get me. This looks like a great book.
