Your Fat Is Not Your Fault!

In seven new approaches by seven experts reviewed, this is one common theme shared by the authors . All of them have been (or still are) in the trenches of individual coaching, and all have successfully guided hundreds and even thousands of clients to sustainable weight loss. And, all of them are promoting a healthy weight lifestyle.

Other common themes include poor or inappropriate diet, inflammation, malfunctioning digestion, and allergenic foods. Along with environmental toxins, these are named as the underlying causes of bloat and toxic fat deposits. However, the experts don’t always agree with each other.

Mindset, a customized approach, eating whole foods and “fit fats”, eliminating common food allergens, detoxification plans, and healing the gut trend throughout. Although to a person, the authors disdain the old eat-less-exercise-more approach, you’ll notice that you’ll be eating differently, often asked to fast, and be directed to follow an exercise routine.

All the programs are designed to keep you from feeling hungry, even those which utilize intermittent fasting. However, fasting is a learned mental discipline and can cause some discomfort on fasting days.

FYI: If you are over 40 and have trouble losing weight, you may need to supplement CoenzymeQ10. In one study, CoQ-deficient people took 100 mg per day. At the end of nine weeks, they had lost 30 lbs compared with only 13 lbs in the nondeficient group.

.Diet Right for Your Personality Type: The Revolutionary 4-Week Weight-Loss Plan That Works for You

Jen Widerstrom is an athlete, weight-loss expert, and star of NBC’s The Biggest Loser. Her basic premise is that many diets fail because they don’t take into consideration individual tendencies or triggers, motivational patterns, or lifelong habits that are ingrained into our personalities. As she writes, “Even someone with the strongest willpower in the world can find it tough to stick to a plan that works for someone else, but not for them”.
Through her experience, Ms. W identified five core personality types. She then designed five different approaches to weight management that could be adapted to suit each individual. The five personalities are:
The Organized Doer
The Swinger
The Rebel
The Everyday Hero
The Never-Ever

Ms. W provides a personality assessment so that you can identify your personality type. Briefly, The Organized Doer is a type A personality who craves routine and rules.


The Swinger is the adventurous type who is finds success in variety, change, and the ability to make choices each day. The Rebel tends to be impulsive and noncommittal. They need to find their own flow and have boundaries that provide varied guidelines.
The Everyday Hero is the person who tends to put other people’s needs before their own. They need a streamlined plan that is easy to set up “with as few obstacles as possible”.


The Never-Ever is out of touch with their health and fitness, or may have given up. This person needs to step away from negative self talk. From their program, they learn how their decisions influence behavior.


Each personality type has a chapter devoted to how they operate and includes four weeks of menu plans and recipes to fit that profile. Ms. W also includes chapters on mental preparedness for dieting success and the meaning of healthy eating. Recipes contain cottage cheese, Greek yogurt, oatmeal, plus spouted bread and tortillas. In the final section of the book, Ms. W demonstrates beautifully a variety of 16 minute workouts.


Siri Says: Diet Right For Your Personality Type contains the most novel approach to dieting of the seven books reviewed here. I highly recommend that you complete Jen’s personality assessment. I believe the information you gain can help you to know in advance how you would fare on a particular program and how to customize varying plans to your own personality.

The science of epigenetics, the (now-known) plasticity of the genome, reveals that our lifestyle choices, including our emotional states, all affect physical outcomes that either threaten our health and set us up for disease or create an environment conducive to our good health and longevity.
