    A way of Life To Stay Thin and Fit Forever

    This book was outstanding and is so much more than just a diet. It is a way of life and eating anyone can do for as long as they live. Before reading the F-Factor I had a basic understanding of the importance of fiber in my diet, but now I am blown away with the power it holds. Since reading the book I was finally able to loose that extra 10 lbs I was struggling with for years and have more energy than ever. The author kept things very straight forward and simple which really allowed me to incorporate additional fiber in my diet with ease. I have already recommended this book to all of my friends and family. Thanks for reshaping my diet with a plan that works for the long term.
