Marshall's one-month project ended up covering 61 days, each a two-page presentation with accompanying and short online videos. The two pages are so nourishing that I am filled for the day . . . with a recipe, some food information, a bit of a journal by Marshall, a bit of a journal by his mom Alex, and a few other morsels of thought. I wake eager for the next day's entry, and I haven't been tempted to gulp the entire book in a single sitting. Not all the videos have yet posted, giving a pleasant sense of immediacy.
Each member of the Reid family shares the journey from a unique perspective, with lightness and groundedness. Marshall himself is incredible at keeping the pressure off and the sense of a friendly adventure on. Though we are 50 years apart in age, he is one of my favorite teachers of 2012.

Good so far. Lots of recipes. Thought it would have more about what portion sizes to use. But it does not.Published 5 months ago by lisa bray
Was disappointed that there was so little actual nutritional information in the book. Might borrow from library but wouldn't buy it again.Published on January 12, 2014 by woolleymama
This book is a very interesting read. I have a 10yr old who has an issue with his weight so he can really relate. We have tried a couple recipes and they were pretty good. Read morePublished on August 24, 2012 by Annette
