The Tapping Cure, by Roberta Temes. It is brilliant.

"Get a Real Food LIfe" (see link) -- a very sensible nutrition book. She explains how to eat healthily but also realizes that food needs to be a positive part of life, not a source of guilt and stress. Lots of helpful info (eg, good fats vs bad fats), and she also talks about the psychology of how we deal with food. Very empowering book -- more a DIY giude than a guru telling you exactly what to do.

okay, I read the review of The Tapping Cure, and I am afraid I am skeptical (apparently you tap pressure points on your body, to produce miraculous cures for all kinds of things???)
Maybe someone can describe where you're supposed to tap for weight loss, and has it really worked for you?

I have read tons of nutrition and fitness books-these are the ones I find myself passing onto friends. No magic bullets here, just good sound information to inspire lifelong changes

The Schwarzbein Principle by Diane Schwarzbein
Flip the Switch by Jim Karas
Eating Well For Optimum Health by Andrew Weil (a great reminder of the mind component of health)
Strength Training books by Joyce Vedral

I (loosely) follow the USDA food pyramid. And hey, I didn't have to drive to the bookstore or spend money on it, the pamphlet is available online as a .pdf . I've reached my goal weight, so I give it an "A" for working. I think the weakness of the material is that they don't stress hard enough what they mean when they say "serving." Their "servings" are smaller than most people think!
