The easiest non-diet to follow! EVER!

This book is like the key to the puzzle of how to lose weight. The book itself is well written and you can tell Chris took the time and really thought it out. It has his verbiage so you know HE WROTE THE BOOK, there's no question about it. It's not another one of those books aiming to inspire you to lose weight by doing the same exercises. This is a TOTALLY fresh and original way to lose weight. Read the book from front to back - I finished it in 3 days, you'll be happy you did. Also, DO THE 'EXERCISES' TO PUT YOUR MIND IN CHARGE OF YOUR BODY. It seems silly, until you stand in front of the mirror, and actually see what Chris is telling you to do and see your body for what it really is. He calls you out on not doing it (loved that part, too haha). This book will definitely help fight obesity in America, if everyone reads the entire book. It's a very easy program to follow, and you get to enjoy foods you enjoy. YOU WILL NOT BE HUNGRY.

Sounds good,makes sense,but is it realistic?

I like the idea but certain things i dont feel i can do long term. No milk allowed not even in coffee. Protein every meal 5 meals a day. If you dont like eggs every a.m. you are left with plain yogurt or cottage cheese. Also in order to get protein in 2 of the 5 times i need to rely in whey or similiar protein shakes.

There are plenty of proteins,carbs, and fats you can choose from on this program. However, the program does have many restrictions. If its not on the list you cant eat it. The only up side to that is you are allowed cheat meals or you can make sunday a free day. This may be my saving grace if i try this diet.

I normally do weight watchers where i can have milk and flavored yogurt, icecream and anything i want as long as i count points. I was looking 4 something different, because of little success. Due to that reason alone i might give this a try or atleast begin adding small changes to my WW plan (e.g. make high point days using activity points and your extra weekly points, and fluctuate high and low point days, no simple sugars, eating protein first then carbs, cutting back on milk-NOT eliminating it.

In the end i think its an interesting read. Maybe borrow it from a friend or library first though to make sure its for you.
Regardless of if you follow it to the letter, there are ideas you can take and use such as his fitness plan and other tips and info in this book.

    Yes I like

    I like the principals in this book. There are easy to follow and simple. My only complaint (Yup, there's a qualifier) and it has to do with my nook, really. When there is a chart of any kind it's almost unreadable.
