It's nice to see a diet book that doesn't talk from authority but instead from ones point of view. The author has clearly tried a lot of diets in the past. She recognizes the yo-yo diet effect and has been a victim to it in the past, like so many people.
I actually have a degree in sports science and am a qualified personal trainer (which is why I was interested to pick this book up), so I know that none of the advice in this book is harmful in any way. On the contrary, the advice contained within is sound and healthy advice that will do you the world of good, not to mention help you lose weight (fat weight too) in a healthy way.
Unfortunately, if you're not a great chef, or if you're pressed for time it's just too easy to eat garbage all the time. One really needs to make an effort by cooking quality and nutritious meals. This book gives plenty of great ideas as well as motivation for doing just this.
The book contains lots of ideas for healthy and nutritious food as well as a calorie count by each, very helpful!
There was also a great tip in there for tracking the calories you're taking in! I won't spoil it for you but it was very clever. Recommended!
