Publisher's Summary

You will never diet again.

Say goodbye to calorie counting, restrictive food bans, or other forced behaviors. In Mini Habits for Weight Loss, you will learn how to lose weight naturally in the precise way your body and brain are meant to change.

We've blamed ourselves for lack of discipline. That didn't help.

We've blamed calories, carbs, and fat. That didn't help.

We've blamed our diet formulas. That didn't help.

It's time we looked at the practice of dieting.

Nearly all diets are ineffective because they're based on dieting. Every person has a diet (noun), but it's only if you are trying to lose weight that you diet (verb). Dieting is eating and drinking sparingly or selectively to reduce your weight.

It doesn't work. If you've tried dieting, you know that.

Even the "perfect diet" with the right foods will fail if it's approached from the traditional dieting perspective. Since weight loss experts are more concerned with biology than neuroscience, we get brilliant discussions on nutrition followed by the same dumb suggestion to "immediately start eating completely different foods than the ones you're habitually used to eating, and give up everything else."

Are you fighting your own body and brain?

The brain resists dramatic behavioral shifts. Recognizing this and developing a strategy around it made the original Mini Habits the number-one selling self-help book in a number of countries. In Mini Habits for Weight Loss, you'll see that we also biologically resist such changes, which explains why most dieters and smoothie-cleanse aficionados lose weight in the short term, only to gain it all back (and more) when the body adjusts.

    "Get this audiobook. You won't regret it!"

    I had already read about 35% of the Kindle version of this book when I got this audiobook. I went back to the start and listened from the beginning. It was worth it to review Guise's ideas, and the reader Dan Penz is excellent.
    The author's writing style is extremely conversational, so in the hands of a good narrator like Penz, this book is very easy to listen to and understand. I usually listen on 1.25 or 1.5 speed, depending on how familiar I am with the content. This book was still listenable at 2.0 speed.
    Stephen Guise is definitely onto something about how habits are the key to achieving and maintaining a healthy weight. He seems to understand with amazing insight the very complicated factors relating to people's relationship with the foods we choose to eat.
    I read Guise's first book, "Mini Habits." It was good, but I didn't end up adopting any mini habits after listening to that book. I feel that in this book, Guise has landed on the perfect topic to encourage readers to adopt the mini habits strategy. I am now faithfully pursuing two health-related mini habits, as well as a third unrelated habit. The health-related habits have given me a vision of the power of mini habits.

    "The best approach for weightloss"
    If you could sum up Mini Habits for Weight Loss in three words, what would they be?

    Small Daily Habits


    What other book might you compare Mini Habits for Weight Loss to and why?

    This is similar to Mini Habits, but it details very specific habits that will help you lose weight and keep it off.


    What about Daniel Penz’s performance did you like?

    Excellent narration, doesn't put you to sleep.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I was impressed by all the research that went into this book - the majority of the nutrition information aligns with what I've read in my own research.


    Any additional comments?

    I encourage people to do their own research on dairy. I believe the author is correct that if you choose to partake, full fat is the way to go... However, I would argue that it is much better to leave dairy off your plate & out of your glass!

    "A fun, sane, no-nosense approach that works"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Mini Habits for Weight Loss to be better than the print version?

    Stephen Guise is a writer whose humor makes the detailed, well-researched, fact-based material a lot more fun and memorable. The narrator of the audio version, Daniel Penz, was the perfect choice for this because he gets Stephen's humor. The delivery was brilliant. So, while the print version was also excellent, the audio book here is the clear winner.


    Any additional comments?

    Weight loss, nutrition, and fitness are quagmires of -- misinformation is the wrong word -- but information that is true, but partial, and easily misapplied. In other words, it's easy to get confused, and there's a lot of money involved in keeping us that way. I've spent many years reading, researching, and trying different diet and fitness strategies, too, and seen quite a few of the studies. After a while, the information becomes incredibly difficult to process, and it's easy to give up in an exhausted state of "contradictory information overload." And that's before you even start the hard work of *dieting* and *intense exercise*.

    Stephen, in this incredibly well-written and well-researched book, takes the hard work out of the process. The strategies for nutrition (not dieting, mind you) and activity (not the latest fitness fad) are easy to implement, fun to do, and are designed for lasting results. The strategy he teaches uses our own psychology to finally help us make the choices we need to make, consistently, for the long haul, without inadvertently creating any guilt, shame, or any of the other problematic yet often unrecognized and powerfully underappreciated psychological and behavioral saboteurs that can derail our efforts.

    If you're familiar with Mini-Habits, or have been exposed to Stephen's work in any form, you already know that he doesn't lean on motivation to create (usually short-term) change. This book doesn't try to psyche you up for a Herculean effort, or convince you that you "just need to want it more". Somewhat ironically, the lack of motivational blather is, well, motivating...because when implementing the strategies in this book, you'll achieve small victories and wins even on your worst days. Nutrition and fitness are a lifestyle, and Mini-Habits for Weight Loss will give you the tools you need to make them part of *your* lifestyle, for the long haul.

    "DOABLE"

    I like the mini habit idea I think it is doable. I have tried all the other ways they didn't work. This makes it sound doable.

    "Finally a real plan for change!"

    This is not about fast results. It's about rewiring the brain so you no longer want to keep an unhealthy lifestyle. It utilizes the brains short term reward system response to solidify better choices iin the long run and gain eventual results that don't send you back to the endless cycle of weight gain that yoyo dieting inevitably does. This approach removes the element of deprivation, shame and fear often associated with other diet plans. Sound research and science, logical and entertaining, and I really agree with the concept of whole natural foods. This concept is now becoming my new approach to everything I hope to accomplish.

    "Sounds very logical, with very easy steps"

    This is not a diet book, but it is the best one which will give me not only a shot on loosing the pounds but gaining confidence in the process of keeping it for a lifetime.
