Book Review: The Four Day Win

End Your Diet War and Achieve Thinner Peace

The Four Day Win: End Your Diet War and Achieve Thinner Peace by Martha Beck

My review

rating: 5 of 5 stars
After losing and regaining the same 60 lbs twice (not counting all the attempts in between), I finally concluded that the key to taking weight off and keeping it off can’t be just working out and eating right.

It had to be something psychological. Maybe something hardwired. Something I couldn’t quite put my finger on.

Martha Beck’s book showed me where exactly to put my finger, so to speak. She covered a myriad of obstacles that present themselves along one’s weight loss journey.

And blessedly, she encourages the reader to adopt each healthier habit very slowly, by setting “ridiculously easy goals” and building upon them.

This, I can do. It’s ridiculously easy!

I’m on day four of my first four day win.

Martha, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful relationship.
