This book doesn't offer overnight success or unrealistic life styles that most of us aren't selfish enough to stick to. There is no sugar coating in the words to make this seem easy or fun, just the facts of what you need to do to be in a state of slim. You must be active and eat less of fats, sweets and even savory, but enjoy what you can eat and let your body learn to love it to. Being active is the biggest push right after eating properly. When I grew up everyone was thrilled to know about vitamins and nutrition was taught at my home and at school. With that not being the case anymore I see little toddlers walking around stores with doughnuts in their hands. Yikes! Toddlers! What are we teaching our children. While my body isn't happy with as much cabbage family plants as they want me to eat, I'm learning to work around it. This book was highly tauted on all the news show in the Denver area and I recommend it also.
I love the idea behind the book and everything about it. The major flaw, in my opinion is that they do not give any alternative diet plans for those who are Vegan or even Vegetarian. Otherwise it would have been an amazing book.
