When the full-length mirror says things your husband would never, ever dare say, it's time to read, Lose the Lies, Lose the Weight.

Laurie Bell is 41-year-old mother of two who educates women about losing weight. What she does differently than most "weight loss books," is she digs deep, sometimes too deep, into the psychology of weight gain, thus weight loss.

Bell really cares about the women she is writing to and about--and this brings honest information. She jumps hard on the reasons people are gaining weight today in such numbers it is almost an epidemic. She doesn't (pardon the pun) sugarcoat a thing, because sugar, especially the hidden sugar, is what got a lot of overweight people into being that way. That, and oh yes--fast food, packaged food, convenience, lack of exercise.

Bell has been there before she turned health-conscious. If our mind (where the weight problem rests in a stupor) got fat like our behinds did, more women would understand why they are overweight, and why they have difficulty losing the weight.

This book is in several parts:

Part 1: Destructive Lies You Tell Yoursel
Part 2: Manipulative Lies Others Tell Yo
Part 3: Nutrition Lie
Part 4: Exercise Lie
Part 5: Getting Fit

If being fit is important to you, you need to make the commitment to take the time to eat right and get exercise.

Armchair Interviews says: In Bell's inspiring story, you will see that you need to stop lying to yourself. If you are serious about making changes in your life, this book's down-to-earth message can help.
