The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business


This is a favorite. One major issue that most of us face when trying to change is that our routine behaviors are not aligned with our goals. This book is filled with examples of how habit influences our lives and how we can reshape habits to achieve desired results.

Switch: How to Change Things When Change is Hard


The authors use a compilation of research to argue that successful change follows a pattern.  By learning the pattern, you can apply it to achieve change in any area of your life. 

Secrets From the Eating Lab: The Science of Weight Loss, the Myth of Willpower, and Why You Should Never Diet Again


This book looks at why diets not only don't work, but also often result in weight gain.  Instead of suggesting the reliance on "willpower" and battling against our natural tendencies, it includes strategies on how to succeed by taking advantage of human nature. 

Food Rules: An Eater's Manual 


"Eat food. Not too much. Mostly Plants". In this book you'll find 64 uncomplicated rules for eating with easy to understand explanations. 

Enter The Zone: A Dietary Road Map


This book lays out a program designed to improve performance and weight control through an optimized relationship with food. You will find recipes, lists of "good" and "bad" carbs, and instructions on how to structure each meal. 

The Forks Over Knives Plan: How to Transition to the Life-Saving, Whole-Food, Plant-Based Diet


This book is a good resource for how to implement a plant-based diet in a 4-week plan. This approach also removes the need for portion control/macro counting.  100 Recipes, advice, and an eating guide are included.

The China Study: The Most Comprehensive Study of Nutrition Ever Conducted and the Startling Implications for Diet, Weight Loss, and Long-Term Health


Personally I find this book a little dry but if you're trying to investigate the potential benefits of a plant-based diet, it is worth taking the time to read the findings here. 

Whole: Rethinking the Science of Nutrition


This is a follow up to The China Study but it is not necessary to have read it to understand the information contained in this book.  Here the focus is more on why we don't change our eating habits even when faced with scientific proof that there is a better method.
