The Book

A Remarkably Inspiring Story of Physical and Emotional Transformation

Audrey Smith had no idea today would be the day that would change her life forever. After 34 years of living life in the shadows of her siblings, struggling with her body weight—from elementary school through torturous teenage years and on into adulthood after having two children—Audrey’s self-image was in the dumps.

Trying diet after diet... From crazy fad diets... to calorie and point-counting systems... to dangerous diet pills. Audrey had tried it all, with little to no success. Despite countless attempts, her weight had continued to creep up over the years, and her health was slowly deteriorating with it. She was left with feelings of inadequacy and hopelessness, and a physical appearance she was not proud of. On top of that, she felt like she was letting herself, and her family, down.

But today that would all change, forever. What Audrey didn’t know was how her journey to regain her body and life would surprisingly unfold.

In Diets Suck!, author Stephen Adelé shares an incredibly powerful, page-turning story, written narratively as a parable, based on seven very real, truly inspiring weight-loss transformation stories. Inside each story, a valuable life-changing “Lesson” is delivered. As Audrey soon learns, as those before her already have, the Seven Lessons are relatively simple, yet remarkably powerful, and if followed, will transform your body and help you regain your health and life.
