And this book did not fail to maintain my attention throughout.

I am way past my high school reunion days but, hey, I'm a baby boomer and I want to look as close to my youth as is humanly possible. Diet books tend to make my eyes glaze. But, Dr. Colbet is funny! This book made me laugh, while coercing me to assess my current attitude toward what I was putting in my mouth. And it wasn't pretty.

Dr. Colbert's reco for eating makes just plain common sense: healthier eating -- and a healthier attitude -- is slowly starting to become a way of life. I've begun to evaluate what I'm putting in my mouth throughout the day. No, I'm not hungry. No, I'm not deprived.

Having just bought the book the day after Christmas, I'm only on my third week. But I swear: I feel better, I look better. Give it a try!

After years of reading nutritional advice, newest diets,and many other weight obsessive literature, it was so refreshing to read Dr.Colbert's book.
He takes you through sound, understandable and effective guidelines to a better life. Not only is it about shedding pounds, but making yourself healthy. He reminds us that taking care of yourself is rewarding inside and out.
If there's only one "diet" book you were going to read, make it this One! It's comprehensive, yet entertaining in it's common sense approach. The best part is that you actually retain the information and can apply it ...for life.

I bought this book several months before my own high school reunion hoping for a miracle cure for my flab. Well, this is not a get-skinny-quick miracle diet. This book teaches you to cut out processed food and eat "true food", aka real fruit, veggies, grains, dairy, and other foods that haven't been processed within an inch of their life. By doing this, the author claims, you will become healthier and it will show on the outside. You will lose some weight, but you won't magically become skinny overnight. After learning how certain foods can age you and how others can enliven you, I have made some big changes in my diet. Not all at once, of course - that's just not sustainable for most people. And the author gets that. He tells you to integrate this way of eating into your life slowly. I love the information and way it's presented. It's not a crash diet or some other gimmick, just really good solid information to help you become healthier.

This book is very encouraging, with amazing, realistic, and easy-to-follow advice. What is good to know is that the writer is a leading dermatologist and doctor, so that the guidance and instructions are at all times sound, reliable, based on science.
I've thrown out all my cookie jars and chocolate bars, and look forward to an exciting "Class of 1980" reunion.

I think of and thank Dr. Colbert daily. The only reason I have read the High School Reunion Diet Book is because he literally saved my life about 5 years ago.
He was the only dermatologist to spot and recommend that my favorite "beauty mark" be biopsied. I resisted for 2 years, and saw others who said
it "looked fine" and took pictures of it. I went back to Dr. Colbert's office and the biopsy turned up Melanoma. He performed my surgery and totally saved
my life.

So when Dr. Colbert recommends something, I now listen. I read the High School Reunion Diet, out of curiosity and as I said, when Colbert speaks, I pay attention and act on his advice.
The book is great. As an ex-dancer I have always struggled with my weight and look for common sense, no nonsense approaches to maintaining a healthy and slim physique.
The book is just like he is: direct, clear, and although serious, well spoken with a great sense of humor and positive outlook.

Dr. Colbert is an astute judge of people and behavior and his plan is one that not only works, but that makes sense and is pretty simple to follow. He's a great motivator too.
He saved my life, now he just might save my waistline.
Bravo!!!

Yes, we've heard it before, but Dr. Colbert makes the case more convincingly than ever: processed sugar is the enemy -- of our health and our beauty. I've been resisting this fact, because I loved my commercially baked goods.. But Colbert offers delicious alternatives! I've been giving my friends this book. I wish everyone would read and follow it. Very easy to read, non-judgmental and eye-opening.

I've been trying to help my family eat a healthier diet for the past year as well trying to do a better job of exercising and getting back to a healthy weight. And while I've taken a lot of good baby steps, there were no clear results until I tried this diet. Wow! I lost 10 lbs in 7 days + 4 more in the next 3 weeks. Within a few days I felt less fatigued (a growing problem for me). I think I laughed out loud when the guy in the cube next to mine commented that my skin looked healthier. Anyway, the book gave me a way to get my head around the benefits of good nutrition and the weight loss was a motivator to stay on track. And even though they still love their jasmine rice and bacon, my family is benefitting from small changes in their diet, too.
