A brand new no-holds-barred diet book can stop obesity dead in its tracks. A direct, in-your-face book, it comes with a warning: it’s not for the ultra-sensitive.

April 28, 2009 - PRLog -- The book, “Die Fat or Get Tough – 101 Differences in Thinking Between Fat People and Fit People” by Steve Siebold, has just been released in its eBook edition.  It cuts through popular self-delusions about diet and exercise and explores healthy thinking and consciousness for an all-around prosperous life.

Five random chapters of "Die Fat or Get Tough" can be read free on the book’s website at
“When you’re tough enough to wipe out all your excuses when it comes to diet and exercise, and can cut through self-delusion, it’s doable − you’re on your way to solving the problem once and for all,” says Siebold. “I moved forward and wrote this book because people are suffering needlessly, getting sick and dying too young because they’re fat. This book has the power to change that, if the reader is tough enough to grow up and accept objective reality. People who reach and maintain a healthy weight have a certain mindset; it’s about taking full responsibility.”

Siebold interviewed hundreds of fit people and fat people over the past five years.  He noticed the extent of obesity all over the world, and agrees it is truly epidemic. He found huge differences in fit vs. fat thinking about diet and fitness. The book shows 101 ways fat people think that keeps them fat or in the yo-yo mode, and how anyone willing to learn the discipline and full compliance needed for a diet and exercise program can reach the success that fit people enjoy, including enhanced self esteem, great health, and even better jobs and salaries. The book does not include a diet or exercise program – you research and find the one that suits you. The book teaches you how to stick to your programs and ultimately maintain a healthy weight and fitness. The print soft cover edition of DIE FAT OR GET TOUGH will be out in June.

The author, mental toughness expert Steve Siebold, recognizes that fat people have a deep need to grab onto something solid and no-nonsense to give them a foundation to build real hope for a better, healthier life. “Die Fat or Get Tough,"  Steve’s third book, fills that void, he says.

As a motivational speaker, Steve has a starring role in a new film being released this summer, “Beyond the Secret." The movie is a follow-up to the voyage started two years ago by the blockbuster DVD film and book, "The Secret", and also stars Les Brown, Bob Proctor and Holli Walker.  Steve won a 2007 Telly Award for Best Motivational Television Show Host. He wrote the business bestseller “177 Mental Toughness Secrets of the World Class”, followed by “Coaching Mental Toughness”. Siebold is an internationally recognized expert in the field of mental toughness, focusing on training corporate sales and management teams. His clients include Johnson & Johnson, Toyota, Coldwell Banker, GlaxoSmithKline, Miller Brewing, and others. He addresses more than 60 live audiences per year, and coaches more than 600 conference calls. He is president of the Gove-Siebold Group.

Steve and his wife Dawn, mini-dachshund Robin the Rat Dog, and sugar gliders Einstein and Maslow live in Palm Beach County, Florida in the winter and on Lake Lanier (North Georgia) in the summer.
