Clean plates On the Heartfelt Holiday Gifts show, I also mentioned four of my favorite books, which would make great gifts, in my humble opinion.

I also highly recommend:

The fabulous books, The Art of Extreme Self-Care and Take Time for Your Life from life coach and bestselling author Cheryl Richardson. I cannot rave enough about these books, which will help you to take back your life and become a master at treating yourself well.

Clean Plates N.Y.C. from Jared Koch and Alex Van Buren. Every health-minded New Yorker will enjoy having this handy little book, which is a guide to the healthiest, tastiest restaurants in Manhattan. (And it’s small enough to fit in your handbag or briefcase.)

SUGAR SHOCK!, which, admittedly, is my book. By giving this to a friend or loved one, you’re Bookcover saying that you care about them and their health and you’d like to help them to live sweeter lives. In the book, which involved my interviewing hundreds of health experts  and connecting with thousands of sugar addicts worldwide, you get educated about the dangers of sugars and refined carbs. In addition, you get many simple, useful tips to help you to break free of your harmful habit. In SUGAR SHOCK!, I strove to take a gentle, compassionate approach, and my intention is to serve as your friendly, compassionate, sugar-free guide, who holds you by the hand to help you become more healthy, happy and centered.

Its also worth considering a watch as a lovely gift. Everyone needs to keep track of time and why not do it in style? My friend was telling me about Omega: Swiss Luxury Watches Online and could not recommend them more.

Now that you have a number of ideas for Heartfelt Gifts, let me also help you breeze through the holidays with poise, dignity and peace of mind.

Sugar Addict? Get Inspired by “Speed Shrinking’s” Susan Shapiro

Are you struggling with a sugar habit or another addiction?

Take heart. You can get out of your self-destructive cycle. 

Just listen anytime to this week's Gab With the Gurus Radio Show with Susan Shapiro, author of the entertaining novel Speed Shrinking.

Susan will tell you how life becomes much richer and better when you get out from under your addiction.

Speed Shrinking is the Hot, New Trend

Check out this cool interview all about the new wave of Speed Shrinking, a trend that’s been created, thanks to my friend Susan Shapiro, author of the entertaining, new novel Speed Shrinking, which offers a humorous account about how a self-help guru (a sugar-addiction specialist, no less) going on a shrink shopping spree, seeing 8 in 8 days to help stop her cupcake binging right before a major TV appearance.

See the fun news story that ran about it. As you’ll see, I was one of the “Speed Shrinkers.”

Feel Special & Enrich Your Life With True Love – Guest Blog Post You can enrich and energize your life with true love rather than sugar.

You can feel so rewarded and fulfilled in a marriage or committed relationship that those quickie carbs completely lose their allure.

With proactive techniques that you'll learn here, love can fill you up. You won't need to rely on an empty, tragic sugar addiction, which you need to frequently re-fuel with those empty-calorie, health-harming carbs.

Today's special blog post is for single ladies (never-married, divorced or widowed) — or even unsatisfied married women — who long for fulfilling, amazing true love with a remarkable, adoring man.

The author of this post is the charming, long-married, personable psychologist Dr. Diana Kirschner, the bestselling author of Love in 90 Days: The Essential Guide to Finding Your Own True Love.

Dr. Diana, who gave you many helpful tips on my Gab With the Gurus Radio Show last Tuesday, reminisces here about her early days as a child when her mom used sugar as love.

Then, she offers you tangible guidelines to find true love. She wrote this post especially to help you, because we ran into each other and became friends this past weekend at a wonderful Book Publishing 2.0.program.

Incidentally, Dr. Diana is a media darling, who has appeared on Oprah, The Today Show and recently The Mike and Juliet Show, where she facilitated a 90-day Love Challenge. (Sure enough, Amelia, the love mentee, did find someone.) So here's Dr. Diana's post:

Feel Special & Enrich Your Life with Fulfilling, Nurturing True Love — Not Unfulfilling, Unsatisfying Sugar by Dr. Diana Kirschner, the bestselling author of Love in 90 Days: The Essential Guide to Finding Your Own True Love.

When I was a child, my mother often showed her love by secreting me away from my other siblings and sharing a cookie, a piece of cake or candy just with me. In fact, she stressed that she was sharing it with me because I was so special. I certainly felt special—even though the sugary love drug usually made me sick to my stomach. (Ring a bell?)
