I am often prepared for lousy writing and minimal content when I purchase a self-published Kindle book, but I was unprepared for this!
The entire book boils down to one formula: calories/grams. That number is the diet denominator and guides the reader in choosing what to eat. Basically it helps one compare energy (calorie) density between foods in order to make wiser choices. I recommend reading one of Barbara Rolls' Volumetrics books instead. Same theory, more information, infinitely better writing.
Many of the sentences in this "book" were so garbled that they didn't even make sense. Then, there were what I hope are typos, such as: "Portion control is often not an adequate diet plan because it leaves you feeling full." (location 965 of 1537) Really? Isn't that the premise of calorie density also?
While I have no doubt that the author did some research and is excited about the idea of energy density, the translation into book format is a fail. Save your money.
