She lives in the Pacific Northwest with her husband, two kids, a German Shepherd beast, two cats who plot to kill the dog, and a dead gecko (seriously). In her free time, she likes to read, watch Criminal Minds reruns on TV, and do absolutely nothing.

I found this book short, sweet, and pretty informative when it comes to losing weight/dieting. You don't need a long book to tell you how to lose weight or get healthy; this book tells you pretty much everything. There are some things that could have been added, of course, such as veggies and fruits. The author says they are the best thing for you, which is true, but she could have gone a little more in detail regarding preparation. What do I mean? Fresh veggies are the best thing for you. Raw is the best way to eat them. However, when you COOK veggies, they lose a lot of their nutritional value, and the only way to cook them so they won't--that I know--is through steaming them. That's how I make them anyway. Little details like that would have made a stronger book, but it's still great for anyone starting into a diet/heath program. I recommend this to anyone interested in the subject, and hope you gain from this book what I did!

I always heard that once you turn 40 losing weight was impossible.  Well it sure wasn’t easy, but I managed. Then came the late 40s and 50s, and I found it beyond impossible to lose weight. I was exercised constantly, followed Weight Watchers faithfully and gained weight! Then January 1, 2014 the Checklist Diet was released. I bought it that day, read it in an hour. That’s right an hour. It’s short, sweet and to the point, and best of all written by someone who struggles to maintain her weight. The author, Rebecca Clark, has a down home friendly style of writing that makes you feel she gets your struggles and has been there herself. The first week after I read this book I lost four pounds and over the course of six weeks lost 16 pounds.  At the end of four months I’d lost 22 pounds. Now, I blow raspberries to anyone who says you can’t lose weight over 50.  I’m 54 and thrilled to be wearing a size 6 again, exercising regularly, eating good food in reasonable portions, eating out, and having the occasional dessert when I want it, which isn’t all that often. Did I diet to lose the weight? Absolutely not. I made a lifestyle change with the help of this book.  Was it easy? Absolutely not. The hardest thing I’ve ever done was to wait, and wait, and wait until I was hungry to eat, but the payoff is I don’t obsess about food like I did. Do I recommend this book. 100 percent! Will I keep the weight off? That’s the real challenge for me and the next six months I’ll see if I can keep it off. I will post again with an update about my progress good or bad. If you’re desperate to lose weight, this is the book for you!
