    Very Informative; very entertaining!

    As a healthcare professional, I found this book to be "factually" informative!!! I did not feel that someone was trying to "sell" a product to me! It has energized me to start making the choices that matter to obtain or maintain good health and avoid or prolong those "hazards" that often come as we age!! I finished this book about a month ago. I am much more aware of what I put into my mouth---yes, I put it there--no one forces me! And, I have missed only one day of exercise in the past 28 days. (Walking in 18 degree windy weather can actually be very invigorating) Yes, I have to "force" myself to do it, but I am always glad afterwards! To say I feel better is an understatement! I am 65 years old, so if I can do this, I am sure most others can also!!! Let's face it---whether we choose to act on improving our quality if life or not, is entirely up to us---no one else!! Thanks for the book!!!

    Don't be fooled: this is not a diet book! This is a book that gets it right: there are no shortcuts to good health: exercise - every day if at all possible - combined with good, nutritious food, will keep the pounds coming off and help you get fitter by the day. The way the book is laid out: chapters that alternate between Jen Sacheck's expertise (she is a professor at the Friedman School, Tufts University) in the field of nutrition, exercise and the body's mechanisms to take in food (or store unused calories, resulting in-fat induced inflammation) followed by Chris Crowley's - often hilarious - follow up putting her recommendations into action - at 78 years of age - is reader friendly. The book also includes very worthwhile exercises and nutritional recipes. Thinner this Year is a MUST for any person who is serious about getting off the couch, turning one's back on diets that don't work, and getting fitter, thinner and healthier. For that matter, this is an excellent book for athletes as well who wish to achieve optimal fitness.

    Great book about fitness and nutrition

    I was thinking of buying a textbook about fitness and nutrition, but then I read Younger Next Year. I loved it so much, I bought Thinner This Year. It has a lot of great information about fueling your body to keep it working properly. Don't need the textbook any more!

    A great follow up from YOUNGER NEXT YEAR. continues on the same path, the THIRD ACT. Chris is as a motivator 
    and guinea pig from Harry to Jen. Jen has insight on the nutrition and exercise, and has great writing ability. This edition 
    charts of all foods, 15 days of what to eat, warm exercises among others. Highly recommend reading!!
