Editorial Reviews

Be Healthy and Well
There are no superfluous words here, just the facts...This book is not for those who want dangerous shortcuts and lazy, pill-popping tricks. Yet for those who want to lose weight naturally, safely, healthfully and permanently (no matter how gradually) this is simply THE book.—Be Healthy and Well
Health Hound
It is rare that I review a book or anything fitness or diet related that is 'all good' but I really can't find a single issue with anything Dr. Spencer has said.—Health Hound
Library Journal
"Think of excess fat as a collection of bad habits." Biology consultant Spencer says that people are inundated with opportunities to consume empty calories that provide no nutrition and leave them hungrier than when they began. The book is new but the technique is tried and tested. Toss out the quickie convenience foods, eliminate snacks, stick to unprocessed whole foods, and drink water. Find an exercise you enjoy and do it often. VERDICT Well-presented and easy to understand, this one is highly recommended.
