Have you ever gone on a diet and lost weight, but became frustrated because you always gained back what you lost?  Perhaps a little extra help is all you need.  The Four Day Win by Martha Beck, PhD is an innovative and entertaining book that promises to “help you end your diet war and achieve thinner peace.”


When it comes to dieting, sometimes an attitude adjustment is just the ticket we need to get over the hump.  The Four Day Win offers a series of psychological exercises Beck labels “four day wins.”  These introspective, often easy strategies help the reader to learn more about their inner selves and to constructively alter their attitude toward being overweight.  As a result, the pounds disappear while achieving an overall healthier lifestyle.


Beck writes with a sometimes self-deprecating, yet humorous and down-to-earth style that quickly puts the reader at ease. The book is not a “miracle” program or fad diet; far from it.  Beck’s goal is for the dieter to attain more than temporary success at weight

loss.  She wants people to understand how their thinking affects their weight, and how

re-programming themselves can change their lives forever.


The Four Day Win is a great read for those wishing to achieve a healthy sense of

well-being while shedding pounds at the same time.
