This is a vapid book written by someone who is clearly more focused on hype than substance (Melissa Perlman). In her book, Melissa recounts a series of simplistic exercises and "tips" that are impractical and ineffective. It's poorly written and boring, not even a fun read. Save your money - don't buy this book!

this book was amazing its not what you think it is it is also very relaxing and i lost 15lbs in the first week it was awsome but the only thing i hate is that it is missing pages 116 - 149 which is half of the lunches and all of the dinners so i just used the dinners from the biggest loser cookbook.
