Format: Paperback
This book takes information available from a number of popular nutrition authors (most notably, Michael Pollan, whose books the author admits were one of her early motivations to change her own eating lifestyle), and builds a relatively simple and easy "road map" which you can apply to your own eating lifestyle, and tailor to your own body.

If you have just recently become aware of the poor state of the "Standard American Diet" (S.A.D. as this book calls it), or the dangers of GMOs or trans fats, or if you've tried one or more fad diets, and failed to keep off the weight, this book will likely be a giant leap forward for you. This book is based, primarily, on good nutritional advice.

On the other hand, if you have already read any of Pollan's books, or any other of the recent nutrition books that talk about the virtues of unprocessed foods, healthy fats, raw foods (including raw milk), the dangers of soy, etc, from authors such as Sally Fallon, Mary Enig, T. Colin Campbell (whom I don't actually recommend), etc, this book will probably be a boring review for you.

One of the most valuable pieces of advice in the book was the author's "E.A.T." concept: Eliminate, Add, Test. The idea being to remove a large number of foods which commonly cause people health problems (such as gluten, dairy, wheat), then slowly add them back into your diet, one at a time, to see how they affect you to determine if they should be part of your regular diet. This can be a useful approach for anyone, even those not trying to lose weight.

The first section of the book offers a very condensed, but mostly solid, overview of the sad state of the American diet. It's like the cliffs notes version of Pollan's "In Defense of Food.

I just can't say enough about this book and the way that Lindsey presents very simple information in a conversational way. I found myself reading through it in 2 hours nodding the whole time as if I was sitting there talking to her instead of reading it! I am a health & fitness coach with a focus on educating people on how to eat from the earth instead of relying on fad diet trends, pills, and convenient synthetic "healthy" foods we are being presented with daily. I will use this book with every client from now on because it isn't too overloaded with nutrition talk but lays it out factual and easy to understand so you can apply it immediately and LIVE your life while being REAL. My overall favorite point that she makes is that we DO have time to eat real food, we have just filled that time doing things that do not make us healthier and are more "fun".
Awesome book that ANYONE can read and follow today.

Loved it! This book was very informative yet fun and easy to read. I am incorporating many of the ideas into my everyday life. What this book isn't - a restrictive diet plan focused on being skinny. What this book is - a plan of attack to become healthy with options to cater to your lifestyle to make it work long term. If you want to focus on being healthy with the side effect of feeling great, buy this book now!

This book explains how healthful eating has nothing to do with fads, gimmicks, or crash diets. Rather, Ms. Harris demonstrates how eating should always be enjoyable and that healthful eating is a way of life. Her recipes are wonderfully easy to follow. This book is for the sensible person who wants lifelong health and who wants freedom from angst that so many people feel when they consider eating. Harris's message is that eating well shouldn't be complicated, expensive, or difficult to do.

Adopting a nutritious diet and weight loss don't have to be complicated and time-consuming endeavors. If you follow Lindsay's practical advice and say "no" to processed food and "yes" to whole foods, the pounds come off almost effortlessly. Since following the Get Real guidelines, I have much more energy and feel great. The recipes are super easy, tasty, and kid-friendly.
