Publisher's Summary

Like so many people, Mara Schiavocampo had struggled with weight for most of her life. She tried every diet on the planet, suffered a debilitating eating disorder, joined a bizarre food cult, took dangerous pills, worked out for insane amounts of time - and still tipped the scales at nearly 230 pounds. But more than reaching a healthy weight, Mara wanted peace and freedom from the constant mental torment brought on by food. A healthy and effortless way of life - for the rest of her life.

And that's what she found. While juggling a marriage, new baby, and a budding television career as a correspondent on NBC, Mara "accidentally" stumbled onto a formula that worked for her. She lost 90 pounds in two years and is now stronger and fitter - and, most importantly, happier - than ever.

In Thinspired, Mara shares her weight-loss secrets and the formula for her success plan. Instead of focusing strictly on do's and don'ts, she talks about eliminating the foods that have control over you - whether that's wine, flour products, dairy, or sugar. By following in Mara's footsteps, you'll lose the pounds and gain back your energy, control, health, and happiness.

Entertaining and Realistic

This book is a good help for those struggling with overeating. As a therapist-intern working with such clients, it left much to be desired... A little slow and not enough depth of coverage.

Loved this so much I bought the book and audiobook

Where does Thinspired rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Immediately when I began reading this book, I felt as thought it was written just for me. I have never felt as connected to another author's story as I did this one. I bought the audiobook after I read the book so I could listen to it as well, and reinforce the helpful information that I got from the book.

What did you like best about this story?

I loved the fact that it felt as though I was having a conversation with a friend, rather than just reading a book.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I actually did laugh at how frankly the author spoke at times. I loved it!

Any additional comments?

I really wish that the author had narrated the book. Having someone else read it takes some of the personal feel away from it.

Life Changing

The methods shared in this book helped my loose over 60 pounds and I’ve been able to keep the weight off for two years and counting. 70+10+10+10 is everything. Thank you Mara. You changed my life and my transformation is inspiring others!

Informative.

Mara spoke about what worked for her. The message that resonated with me is that you can NOT work out and eat whatever you want and expect weight loss results.
