Iportion Challenge: 95% Regain is a Myth: For writers : Thankful List:

Iportion Challenge: We be will be doing a challenge soon but unlike other changes it’s not a computation and I am still working on details.

95% Regain is a Myth
I read a back over of another diet book. I got it for free and I am going to hopefully read it. There was a common mistake that is often spotted in the diet industry that 95% of people who lose weight gain it back in year. It was not a few studies it was 1 small study that was full of mistakes. Actually 20% keep the weight off for longer than a year and 28% for weight watchers. All right those aren’t the greatest numbers but they sure are higher than %5
Low carb dieters regain is higher but that’s due to restrictiveness and not all low carb diets are of the same quality. They all seemed to be lumped together.

For writers :
I haven't read the book. I plan to get the first book on promoting your published work. It will be one of my end of summer exercise rewards.

The Frugal Editor: Put Your Best Book Forward to Avoid Humiliation and Ensure Success
ISBN: 978-0-9785158-7-4 Publisher: Red Engine Press

There are gremlins out there determined to keep your work from being published, your book from being promoted. They —resolved to embarrass you before the gatekeepers who can turn the key of success for you —lurk in your subconscious and the depths of your computer programs. Whether you are a new or experienced author, The Frugal Editor: Put Your Best Book Forward to Avoid Humiliation and Ensure Success will help you present whistle-clean copy (whether it's a one-page cover letter or your entire manuscript) to those who have the power to say "Yea" or "Nay." It is the second in the How To Do It Frugally Series of book for writers. You can learn more about it at where you will also find a media room complete with downloadable media kits.

Here is more about the author:

She is an award winning author and an instructor for UCLA Extension's world-renown Writers' Program, her book The Frugal Book Promoter: How to Do What Your Publisher Won't was named USA Book News' "Best Professional Book 2004," and was given the Irwin Award.

Thank you so much for mentioning The Frugal Book Promoter in your blog. I'm afraid I won't be getting much reading done this summer 'cause I'm going to be writing the third in the HowToDoItFrugally Series of books for writers--on publishing. But I know the writers among your fants will get lots from the first two, THE FRUGAL BOOK PROMOTER and THE FRUGAL EDITOR if they follow your lead! Good luck with your new children't book, too!
