When I am asked about my five stone weight loss transformation, people are naturally curious about how I did it and often want to know which plan followed. My simple answer is I chose a natural diet and reduced calories, the truth is I taught myself how to lose weight and created my own plan- and I did that by reading lots of diet, weight loss and wellness.
If like me, you have tried and failed before following all the usual plans and having tried everything are feeling a bit hopeless about it all, these are the books I read when creating my own plan and I honestly think they can be life changing. As Melissa Urban says in Food Freedom, we don’t just want weight loss, we want something more than that. So if you want more energy, to feel lighter, to eat well without feeling it is a struggle, then I really recommend having a look at these books. If I can do it, you can too! I’ve included amazon affiliate links here so you can click through and buy them. these are the best weight loss books I’ve read.
Before you pay out for another slimming club membership, buy this paperback which is on sale for just £3. That would only get you half a slimming club meeting. You’d barely have time to hear about Kayleigh’s off plan Nando’s in that time. It’s honestly amazing for changing how you think about eating, diet and weight loss!

My other favourite and another fasciating book is Food Freedom Forever. It is particularly useful if you are experiencing food sensitivies or have an idea that certain foods might not agree with you. There’s also a great strategy to follow when you feel like you have gone off the rails a little and want to reign things back in again which is REALLY useful.
“In Food Freedom Forever Melissa outlines a simple three-part plan that will help you to discover food freedom for yourself, no matter how out of control you feel. It will point you down a self-directed path that keeps you balanced, satisfied and healthy, without requiring that you obsess about food, count calories or starve yourself. By the last page, you’ll have a detailed plan for creating the perfect diet for you, finding your own healthy balance, and maintaining the kind of control that brings you real food freedom every day.”
