A chain of emotional events: rage, physical pain, sadness, bewilderment, frustration, elation, even blind faith. Like the experience of dieting itself, Chicken Soup for the Dieter’s Soul runs through the gamut of sensations that every dieter has faced. And some that a dieter couldn’t even fathom. But to get to the heart of the matter, this is a collection of heartwarming and encouraging stories.

This new installment from the makers of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series is inspirational to those who have ever tried a diet and failed, and affirming to those who have succeeded. The book has a sizeable portion of helpful diet tips, such as “occasionally indulge to prevent overeating later on,” and healthy recipes like sesame crusted chicken and nutty raisin carrot bread (there’s value for your dollar, right there!).

And of course, Chicken Soup for the Dieter’s Soul throws in a few comics for good measure. Chew on this: even if your diet isn’t going so well at the moment, a Vanderbilt University study reports that you can burn up to 40 calories with a fit of the giggles. So laugh, grab some baby carrots, and cuddle up with this entertaining read.
