In general a lot of good information is given, and can start you on a path to better health - or at least begin to question the things you thought were good for you, The writing however, is awkward at best, editing leaves a lot to be desired. A few times the text was "click here..." which wasn't a link of any sort or footnoted.

This is probably the most enlightening book I have ever read! I will absolutely be purchasing all of Maria Emmerich's other books. Although I am just getting through the book I feel like its going to change mine and my families lives forever. I have struggled with my weight my entire life. I have done the low-fat diet probably since my early 20's and I am constantly up and down with my weight. Now that I understand HOW certain foods effect our body it will be easier for me to make the necessary changes to correct it. It finally all makes sense!

Maria is amazing and the information in her books is awesome. She has a great blog too. Her other cookbooks are fantabulous!!

I'm only a few pages in, but I've already found that a chart that should be in the book is not showing up in the nook edition.  Hopefully there are not that many charts in the rest of the book, otherwise it will be very disappointing.

This is such an eye-opening book. The author gives you tons of information on why you you should be eating certain foods and not eating others. VERY informative and easy to read.I agree that the formatting for the Nook is a little 'off" but you can contact the author and she will fill you in on any missing information that didn't show up correctly on your Nook. This book was life-changing for me and I would highly recommend it if you are ready to change your habits for the better!

A lot of good information.

In about 1 hour of cooking you burn 180 calories and 1 hour of walking at a grocery store and to your car, etc you burn about 180 calories. The clean up, dishes, etc is another 90 calories. So that is 450 calories. Running 5 miles burns about 500 calories. The point I am trying to make is that running 5 miles 3 days a week (3 total hours) is only 1.8% of your week. You can increase your movement during the other 98.2% of the week and get bigger increase in your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR). I run 5 miles a day, every day (including in 30 below winter!). I love it! I do it for my own love of running, not for losing weight. If I want to focus on losing weight I do strength training and interval training (which I describe later in the book in the whole chapter on Exercise). I hope you enjoy the book and hope this helps you understand my reasoning. Regards, Maria Emmerich

I had read good reviews (by friends and family of the author I believe) on Amazon. I want to start eating better which is difficult as a single mother and runner. I am always looking for more hours in the day. I've started reading the book and am still hopeful, but in the first 25 pages the author is trying to convince me that going to the grocery store and standing at my stove burns as many calories as running 5 miles. We all know that isn't true. Then a few pages later she criticizes serious exercisers (the author obviously doesn't enjoy running or respect runners). As someone who enjoys training with friends and running and biking longer distances - she's losing me. But.... I'm sure that the good reviews are there for a reason and I'm hopeful that she will give me the information to improve how I eat - and some relatively easy ways to implement a new way of eating. I want my children to learn healthy ways to eat from the start.

I hope the printed version is better than the nook version - but I suspect not. The writing is awkward, numbering is off, and the content doesn't hold together. I think the material might be valuable but not if you can't muddle your way through it. I'm on Chapter 3 and so far, it is still a jumbled mess. A good editor is desperately needed!
