Here is sound advice enveloped in both warmth and sensitivity. I liked the 'nibbles' scattered throughout the book and other practical suggestions, such as how to obtain and wear a pedometer. I am having such fun in my daily walking and competing with myself for 'steps instead of miles.' As a health educator who taught Nutritional Smorgasbords to elementary school children and also to groups of school nurses encouraging them to include this concept of healthy eating in their school programs, I am delighted to see this much needed book in furthering the education of the public and in such a clear and kindly tone.

I think I've read every diet book ever written. They're all the same. You follow a specific plan for a while, you lose weight and then as time goes by, you drift back to your old habits and gain it back. This book focuses your weight loss on whatever habits caused you to gain weight in the first place. It's more personalized than any other diet book I've ever picked up. And it works. I'm losing weight while getting control of my eating and exercise habits. I also have more energy and don't feel like I'm depriving myself. This book is filled with so many healthy snacking options and great recipes. I also find the nibble on this sayings to be very motivating. I always wondered why I kept gaining my weight back. Now I know why and am doing something about it. -------------------------------------------------------- ----------------

I will admit that the gimmicky title made me a little skeptical but I was pleasantly surprised. There were no gimmicks. Instead, I found real help and a lot of encouragement. I really like the way the quiz directs you to find the treatment that will work for you. What Dr. Kushner recommends makes sense to me. I also like that I only have to follow the tips that apply to my patterns. The recommendations are easy to follow and practical. I've never met Dr. Kushner but I feel like he really understands me and my problems. I love how positive this book is. It's not like a regular diet.
