I think this book takes you back to learning how to eat in moderation and refuel your body instead of always dieting. I was tired of dieting and wanted to relearn how to eat and still feel great. This book teaches you all of that and you never feel deprived.\nI would definitely refer anyone to this book as it has everything you need.
I had a baby and gained back all the weight I lost 4 years prior. I was determined to lose the weight and be a HOT mamma. I loved this diet its great when you are always on the go and having to be in mommy mode during down time. I prepare my meals in advance and finally was able to stop snacking on cookies and eating take out. It is truly a lifestyle, not a diet. I will always eat like this. Its about common sense and self control but this book is like having a friendly guide to keep you on track. Also I love the fact that it not only tells you what to eat, it tells you how often and how much to work out. I usually double the work out times because I have so much energy now and I do weight training too. I knew I could do it again I just needed that game plan and this was perfect. Stick to it! I feel great and I love the reactions from family and friends I went from 212 to 165 I have 35 more to go but this book will be with me long after that. LOVE IT!!
32 year old mother of 3 and I write this review 20 lbs lighter since starting this diet around June 18, 2007. If you are ready to make a change for the better in your life you NEED to get this book and follow the plan. It is an easy read.\nIt is the only \"diet\" that I have been on that does not feel like a diet. This is about LIFESTYLE change. This book retrains you exactly how to eat. I would even hesitate to call this a diet.\nDon't get me wrong, the first 9 days are tough. It takes a lot of commitment. However, if you can get through those first days, anything is possible and it WILL change your habits for LIFE. There are so many people out there who are living and healthy testaments that this diet works.
