At times I wanted to put the book down just so I didn't have to be exposed to the profane language.

The book is interesting and fun to read. The actual diet game tho, I found a little too complicated and a little too restrictive. Loved the idea so a friend and I modified the rules a little and are playing our own version of East Coast vs. West Coast. For anyone who is really competitive and doesn't mind following rules and record keeping, I'd recommend this book. If nothing else it looks at the lighter side of trying to diet---if there is such a thing!

Haven't done the diet yet but my sister and niece are on their second round and loved the results. But immediately, I have a problem with the download of the book to my iPad Kindle program. The score sheets at the back of the book, which one must use to play the game, are useless. You cannot copy them nor send them to yourself in an email nor can I save to Pages or Evernote. In order to have score sheets, I'll have to type myself or ask my sister to send one to me and make copies, which is a pain-in-the-butt solution.

I think overall this is a very creative approach to dieting. Anyone who likes a challenge and/or needs a competition to keep them motivated will find this approach worth trying. I have been using it as an exercise only challenge - and it works. However, all teams must be competitive or the momentum is lost. As a diet approach I find this refreshing and fun. If you are stuck - it is worth getting this book and trying this approach. It might be just what you need to get motivated, stay motivated, and keep on track.

However, my main complaint is the book itself - well the writing style and the use of profanity. It isn't necessary to use the F word so often in this text. It is a real turn off and does not add anything to the content. At times I wanted to put the book down just so I didn't have to be exposed to the profane language. I also have friends that will not read the book because of this - and thus will not work with me on a challenge. {sigh}

This is a great idea! One that I think it will help many people make changes in their lives that they would otherwise not get around to making. It is fun to read, motivational, and allows points for improvements in other areas of life than just losing weight - which I think makes this great idea even greater.

My one disappointment, and it is a big one, is that the writer finds it necessary to litter this treasure with sailor talk (sorry, sailors). Her writing is so fun and personable and created such a sense of trust and respect that when she slapped me in the face with that first F-bomb it was a little surprising. And every one after that made me wonder how many more people were being turned off from continuing, or sharing the book with family and friends.

I definitely intend to use the program, but regret all the white-out that is going to be on my screen so I won't be embarrassed to share it with my sweet wife (I jest... about the white-out, that is =o). If an edition is printed without such colorful language I will gladly pay the 5x higher price and buy hard copies to give to others! Until then, I'll just keep this Kindle edition under the mattress ;-)

I was so excited when a friend recommended this book and it's method for weight loss. Call me a prude - but the "F-word" is used approx. 13 times within the first 20 pages! What's up with that??? Is it necessary? Well, it was necessary to include if you wanted to keep a cute idea from reaching people who don't want to pay for verbal pollution!

Looks like a good diet plan and a fun way to add some competition with friends. However, I was put off by the foul language in the book.

The wife bought this book and played the game for a month. I lost 7 pounds and I wasn't participating. I'm trying to get her to start playing again.
