Publisher Comments:

Ted Spiker may be the coauthor of numerous bestselling diet and health books, but the man just cant resist a good burrito. Or a bad burrito. (Hes also eaten a 76-ounce steak, asserted that his wifes post-pregnancy jeans were the best-fitting pants he ever wore, and was asked by his own childhood doctor if his “feminine shape” embarrassed him at the beach.) In Down Size, Ted takes readers on an inspiring, candid, and comical journey, exploring the art and science of weight loss through
his own struggles as a pear-shaped man in a not-so-pear-shaped world, with research about food, exercise, and the psychology of losing weight. He reveals twelve truths about successful weight loss, in areas such as temptation, frustration, nutrition, and inspiration. Some truths:
• Redefine the Definition of Data
• Leave Behind Your Extra Gland
• Think Process, Not Outcome
• Train Shorter, Train Harder

 

Combining science, personal stories, expert interviews, and advice, Down Size is an entertaining, field-tested, and research-based look at how men and women can finally find the body they want.

Synopsis:

An inspiring account of one woman?s mission to lose six dress sizes and change her life for good

For Lisa Delaney, being a ?fat girl? wasn?t just a matter of weight, it was a state of mind. At one hundred eighty-five pounds, she was despondent over diets that never worked and disappointed by her dull job and lack of a love life?until a late-night epiphany involving a half-gallon of ice cream convinced her that becoming a former fat girl, in body and spirit, was the key to creating a life she truly loved.

Today, seventy pounds lighter, Lisa is a successful writer at a national magazine. She is married to a man she loves. And she wears a size two.

Eye-opening, accessible, and filled with practical advice, this book reveals the seven secrets of Delaney?s success, and explores how shifting from ?wannabe Former Fat Girl? to actual Former Fat Girl is as much about seeing yourself as a confident, desirable woman as it is about achieving an ideal weight.
