Did you know that we all make “food friends”? Some of our “food friends” are good for us and others are not the best choice. The Food Is My Friend Diet teaches readers how to make “good food friends,” such as fruits and vegetables, and curb emotional eating by developing new ways of coping. This book is full of science-based guidelines for weight control and physical activity, written in a fun and interactive tone.

The Food Is My Friend Diet is a perfect combination of healthy lifestyle counseling and comic relief, with the help of comedian Jackie Fabulous. Jackie provides a unique perspective on the program and shares her experiences that the reader can relate to on an individual level. The Food Is My Friend Diet takes the reader on a 30-day journey through 30 educational and inspiring chapters. Each chapter ends with a “check-in” tool, where Ruth summarizes the chapter and encourages the reader to take action by setting a goal.

This book is a must-have for anyone looking for a real-life solution to weight management.
