    Great boook!

    I really loved this book! Great recipes (my family likes them better than the BL Family Cookbook) and a reminder of what it really takes to be healthy. Being healthy is about eating right and lots of exercise(even just being ACTIVE). Another winner in the BL series!

    This is the Best Healthy eating Book on the Market!

    I awesomely loved this book. It was very informative on Diabetes, cancer and blood pressure. It gave some great menu ideas. Hoping to put into practice the health foods it mentioned. If you want to buy any of the books by The Biggest Loser this book is a must have. I think this book is the best over the others that been put out.

    Highly recommended

    I picked this up two weeks ago to try to lose the last ten pounds of my baby weight. Ive lost six pounds since then, the recipes and meal plans are excellent, and because im eating five times a day im honestly never hungry. The exercises are great as well, they ease you into the program, im not in great shape,i find it challenging but not overwhelming and there are more advanced variations included. Beyond the weight loss though theres a lot of info on the benefits of a healthy lifestyle and the risks of a sedentary lifestyle and poor diet. Im realizing that while ive always been fairly slim i was very unhealthy. Im so glad that i read this, it has definitely impacted the way ill raise my eleven month old daughter, especially because she is so young and ill be able to prevent her from developing the bad habbits i previously had

    Great book...Not a great Nook Book

    In a rush I suppose to get this into digital format lots of corners were cut. Margins are terrible and the pictures are pixilated instead of crisp. After a few pages it is terribly distracting and quite honestly annoying. I would like to return this Nook copy and just purchase the book itself.

    I'm sure there are alot of gems to be found in here but they make finding them too hard.
