I like evaluating new diet books out of simple curiousity and to pick them apart. I have never watched the show Jillian Michaels is on - The Biggest Loser. The title is a real turn off. I bought this book expecting to hate it. I thought it was at best going to be a piece of fluff and at worst a dangerous, misinformed, and unrealistic weight loss program that would prey on the desperation of overweight people. Jillian's program is, in fact, exactly the opposite. Winning By Losing is the most honest, informative, comprehensive weight loss book I have ever read. Her passion for what she does leaps off the pages in the books SELF section and it is obvious to anyone who reads the diet section that she is an expert in her field. I am refrerring this book to any of my patients who are looking for a real solution to their weight loss problems. Last, this book is reader friendly, simple to understand, and well laid out. However even if you follow it to a 'T', you'll be doing the same thing you've always had to do to lose weight- eat less and exercise more. This book is no- nonsense and well worth reading for anyone who wants to get serious about losing the weight - permanantly.

Relative no brainer

Nothing new or revolutionary here.

If you have any clue about diet and exercise you won't find this book helpful.

If you watch Biggest Loser and are pro-Jillian this will not be new info either.

It is not a bad book - just nothing special, not very reflective...

It is not a bad book - just nothing special, not very reflective of the Jillian you see on the show.
