I have always hated diets, well, at least, I did. I tried them, but only to gain all of the weight that I lost right back. But, after two recent health crises involving my sister and me, she has developed diabetes and sleep apnea and I have developed high blood pressure, I have started to rethink that idea. Then, on Tuesday, I found Rocco’s book at Barnes and Nobles and I decided to start reading it right there in the store. It is just what we needed. Best of all, we love the meal plans. Don’t be alarmed by how low the calories are. Rocco uses fact based research to show how this will allow you to really drop those pounds. This book, like all of Rocco's books, is a must have for anyone who is serious about losing weight and making life changing choices. Buy it!
I also want to send a huge thank you to whoever posted the link to The Hungry Chick Dieting Solution. Several months ago, I saw a woman on the train deeply engrossed in the book, so I asked her about it. She told me that The Hungry Chick Dieting Solution helped her lose ten real pounds and helped her stop a bunch of bad eating habits. I planned to order it months ago, but I honestly forgot the name. I didn’t make the same mistake twice when I saw it tonight. I read the sample chapter and like that it focuses on long term results. I have already ordered copies for both my sister and I. Between that book and Rocco’s, I am going to get our lives back on track. Hope this helps other people.

This book is about 1/2 as helpful as I expected. It seems to be very much the type of eating plan that would discourage you. I found the cost of many of the suggested foods to purchase if unable to make recommended recipe were quite expensive. It also seemed there was no room to switch around the suggested mails. It is not explained very well. My husband was the person who wanted the book to follow because he thought Rocco would have some great tasting "Italian" foods. He was also disappointed. Also 800 calories a day is rather low plus most of the suggested meals to buy have sodium amounts due to being preserved. Maybe not important if you do not have health issues.
