Never Say Diet -- Make Five Decisions and Break the Fat Habit for Good,
I've never been one to buy diet books, although I am interested in improving the nutrition of my family's meals and I know I could stand to lose about 25 pounds. I understand the simple equation for losing weight -- eat less and move more. But somehow I've not been able to do it consistently so I've just been complaining about how tight my clothes are.
Chantel's process is as simple as the equation above, but she goes a step further to help us understand why we choose not to reduce our caloric intake or get off our behinds. In easy to read and understand chapters, she challenges us to wake up and make a key life decision -- to live in a healthy manner and get to a healthy weight.
This is no 'lose weight quickly' scam -- it is a daily decision we must make each morning before we open our mouths. Despite all the excuses we make, losing weight is a matter of discipline. Chantel takes you through the process step by step to a healthy lifestyle.
If you are really ready to make a change in your life, this is a great book to help you start.

“More than ninety percent of my patients gain back most of the weight they lose. Why so little success? The simple answer is that the average person can’t stay on a diet permanently. But this program is different. It is not a diet, but a complete lifestyle, thought-process, and physiological transformation. The change comes from within, helping to make you a better person…not just a thinner person.”
–Barry S. Ross, MD, Tamarac, Florida
“Never Say Diet provides a systematic approach to living a healthier, more balanced life. The food list that Chantel Hobbs presents is nutritious and, most important, enjoyable. Never Say Diet proves that fad diets don’t work and cannot substitute for creating a lifestyle that leads to attaining your goals.”
–Lon Ben-Asher, MS, LD/N, registered dietician, North Shore Medical Center, Miami, Florida
“The importance of Chantel’s story can’t be calculated in terms of burned calories or lost pounds, and it’s not her dramatic weight loss that makes her such a special person. It’s her willingness to credit God’s ability to totally transform lives. She reminds us that lasting change has to happen on the inside before it can happen on the outside, and that this change is within reach of anyone who’s willing to seize it.”
–Bob Coy, pastor of Calvary Chapel, Ft. Lauderdale, Florida
“You might be able to lose a few pounds with a crash diet, but it’s temporary. That’s why diets don’t work for people who need to lose a lot of weight. Instead of going on a diet, you need to make a lifestyle change. In fact, you must undergo a ‘brain change.’ Never Say Diet delivers just that.”
