For me, aside from the calorie requirements, I would have liked to see the amount of carbs and protein grams required - not just percentages with a caveat: don't worry just follow MY meal plan (yuck).

I am a huge fan of Bob Harper, but this book really disappointed
I am a huge fan of Bob Harper, but this book really disappointed me. In his attempt to give a basic understanding of simple and complex carbs to the readers, he gives some rather misleading information. He says that simple carbs are "good" because they are found in fruits in vegetables, however, simple carbs are also found in table sugar, candy, soda and gum. He also advises staying away from complex carbs, which he states are in processed starchy foods. That may be true but complex carbs are also found in whole grain foods, oats, and some vegetables. Bob also promotes drinking a lot of water, but too much water can be very dangerous, you can dilute your electrolytes. As far as electrolytes go, some electrolyte levels in your body are very sensitive and too much or too little of any electrolyte can cause very serious problems such as heart problems. Bob recommends electrolyte replacements, but I think that is something that should be determined by a doctor, especially if somebody is on any type of prescribed medication. Bob should just stick with the simple message of "eat less and exercise more."
