Format: Paperback
The basic premise of this book is simple: People cheat on diets. This book shows you how to cheat and still lose weight. Each of the 8 weeks (one chapter for each week) has a section on weekly goals (ie getting enough water, reducing portion size, etc), a suggested menu, sample workout, food journal, shopping list, and LOTS of snack suggestions. There are many recipes and serving suggestions, as well. I really like the section on sweeteners...this book really stresses natural sweeteners for your foods like honey and agave nectar. The author looks at stress and how it effects out eating habits. I like the section titled "Boozing it up with Brains". I enjoy having a drink in the evening and have always felt guilty for the wasted calories but there are ways to reduce those calories and still enjoy your drink. Adding seltzer water and a splash of juice with your vodka instead of straight juice will cut calories considerably!

This really is a very common sense way of eating...reduce your serving size, make smart food choices (unprocessed, as natural as possible), get moderate exercise and forgive yourself for the occasional slip up! Cheating on a diet happens but doesn't have to destroy your diet completely!

I love that there is no calorie counting, no weighing of food, and nothing that is completely off limits in your diet. The author's writing style is engaging and she seems to be chatting with the reader like she would a friend. It makes the book quite an enjoyable read.

It is a book on commonsense eating and that "cheating" is going to happen but let it happen wisely. I like this book because it breaks down some things that we often wonder about and it helps not feel HORRIBLE when you slip, because it is going to happen. After 2 weeks, I am already seeing a changes for the good...... and I am not counting, weighing, or eating things I don't want.... and the family likes it too!!!

Since I live in the city and don't really have a kitchen, the author addressed many of the issues that affect me. Her tips for eating healthy make sense for people who are pressed for time and money. Many of them are intuitive but sometimes people need to re-learn what is "easy" to get back in the habits of basic daily living.

Marissa Lippert's book is fantastic and highly recommended. Marissa's RD/MS shines through as she provides thorough and sound reasoning behind all of her recommendations in "The Cheater's Diet". She also stresses the importance of locally and ethically raised foods, knowing the source of what you eat, and learning to love all types of foods. Definitely a must-buy.

This book is ok. If you are a single, 20 year old professional that has never cooked a single thing ever and never had to "diet", than this is the book for you. If not, do not waste your money reading about how to chop a salad or mix up a vinegarette.
