Anyone who knows me, knows that I am weight challenged (is that the politically correct wording for overweight?) and so if I can find a book that will at least help me to eat healthier, even if I can't lose weight, I'm going to take a look. I wish I'd looked sooner.This is a quick easy book filled with all different kinds of information including charts of examples of soluble fiber vs. insoluble fiber, cooking and baking substitutions, recipes with nutritional information, and details of what that nutritional label means to you, just to name some.The advice for changing your eating habits seems just common sense when the explanation is read and understanding the differences in ingredients could knock you for a loop.This is a book that I am planning on keeping readily accessible in my kitchen. Maybe I won't lose weight because of it, but I definitely hope to be eating healthier.
I have read several other diet books over the years. This book is terrific because there is no gimmick about dieting, it is just pure fact about what is in foods, what you need, how much you need, types of food to eat and types of food to avoid. It is true, you don't need to "diet" you just need to eat a healthy diet and this book spells it out for you. It is a fast, easy read with great information. This is a great reference book for everyone to have. Anyone interested in losing weight for life should start with this book and will avoid countless wasted hours with other diet books and diet fads.
I've tried diet after diet and I had no luck. Brett Blumenthal's book, "GET REAL" and STOP Dieting! is life changing. It really focuses on the most important things so that losing weight and keeping the weight off is easy and uncomplicated. She organized the book in one of the most easy to follow formats...and it is a quick read. down and dirty...without lots of fluff. I recommend this book to anyone interested in seriously losing weight and keeping it off for good. It is a MUST! PLUS, the recipes are fantastic.
