I have a problem with the celebrity books in particular. A female celebrity who has a personal chef and trainer even someone in charge of air brushing them chiseled for the book pictures, is just trying to make a buck writing an exercise book.
People will buy the book because they like the celebrity and have the natural fantasy that following the book will somehow transform them to some resemblance of the star in question. But realistically I could do boot camp cross training for the next year and I will still not look like Heidi Klum...and that's okay

Recently, I heard about The Peanut Butter Diet. Have any of you read it? Is it worth buying?

My whole life, I have followed the Mediterranean. Sure, I have attempted every new diet out there, but always return to my roots.

Some of us cannot afford to go to Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, Nutrisystem, etc. So, sure a fitness and health book is super!

I think they can be a great guidance on what to eat and recipes to try. They can definitely motivate you and get you in the right mindset. Unfortunately, where I run into trouble is the dedication to the change in eating and exercise. But a fitness book can be a great companion during weight loss.
Any book that helps a child to form a habit of reading, to make reading one of his deep and continuing needs, is good for him.

I think it could definitely help. However, everyone has a different body type so I feel like it is often impossible for one uniform diet plan/workout to work. You could probably find most of the tips in the book in articles online. Your diet/work out plan should be suited to you specifically and not be a generalized plan. I have religiously followed health & fitness books and some of helped and some have not. It really just depends.

Yes health and fitness book can help one to loose weight, all you need to do is to be disciplined and self controlled. Am currently following the tips in some health book and honestly it works.
