Oxygen's Pick It Kick It ~ Diane Hart

Oxygen's Pick It Kick It: Simple Choices, Huge Results ~ Diane Hart

If you've known me for most of the years I've worked at the library, you'll know that I once weighed quite a bit more than I do today (I'm not telling how much). Way back when I was inspired to lose some weight, I was inspired by Dr. Dean Ornish's Eat more, weigh less. That sounded good to me, eat, eat, eat and still lose weight. It really came down to making food choice and portion size changes, at least for me. I was successful and have pretty much kept the weight off.

I am still always looking at ways to make better nutritional decisions so when I saw Oxygen's Pick It Kick It: Simple Choices, Huge Results by Diane Hart I decided to take a look see. There are lots of good food substitutions here, thus, the pick it, or kick it choices. You'll also find some inspirational weight loss stories in these pages, recipes and what to eat at the fast food chains. I found a delicious orange poppy seed dressing that should go good on a spinach salad, as well as some reinforcement for mindful eating. I wasn't too happy with the suggestion that I KICK IT, Rold Gold's Pretzels. These are a favorite of mine and I don't like the idea of giving them up. I can't remember what the book suggested in it's place so I guess for the time being I'll just keep eating them!

I feel motivated if not exactly full and hopefully, all this will help me to fit into that bathing suit this season. Another staff member looked the book over quickly and decided it was just making her/him hungry.
