101 Things to Do Before You Diet is a book written by Mimi Spencer. She is a famous beauty journalist in the United Kingdom, and having spent years around the catwalk and models who strived to stay a size 0, she developed her book as the “anti-diet” to show the world that looking good is about more than losing weight. After years of depriving herself of foods she loved and hating herself for the way she looked, she collected the 101 tips you can use to keep yourself healthy without succumbing to the diet rollercoaster, and this is where the book comes from.

Product Features

101 Things to Do Before You Diet is not really a diet, but a guide of various options and things you can do to improve your lifestyle rather than trying to lose weight through crash and fad dieting. She has chapters dedicated to eating, with tips such as: “always eat breakfast” and “eat more greens and browns” (vegetables and grains.) She has a 12 step program that can help you break the habits that are making you fat. She mentions the importance of exercise and how to work it in your daily life. Overall, she promotes a diet high in vegetables and low in foods that are bad for you, but does allow for small indulgences in the things you love, such as chocolate. Spencer does not give a day-to-day meal plan in the book, but does take time to include several simple recipes that will help you get in line for a healthier diet.
