5.0 out of 5 stars A life Saver!, January 4, 2001
This review is from: Suzanne Somers' Eat Great, Lose Weight: Eat All the Foods You Love in "Somersize" Combinations to Reprogram Your Metabolism, Shed Pounds for Good, and Have More Energy Than Ever Before (Paperback)
I came in contact with this book last July, 2000. I found it to be very easy to read. Suzanne kept her focus on how she felt this way of eating made sence to her and why. I must admit I wasn't too sure that it was going to work. At this poiint in my life I guess I felt I didn't have too much to lose, or I should I say I had a lot to lose weight wise. I have always had problems with how my body would digest or not digest food. I can not eat certain things without a severe reation, now I understand why. These foods are on the do not eat list, avocados, bananas, peanut butter. If I would even take a bite of any of these foods I would end up at the hosptial in terrible pain. I also have suffered from other problems related to how my colon functioned or didn't function. Without going into any detail I will just say it was always something I had to think about and deal with whenever I ate period. I got to the point where I didn't even want to go out to eat in fear of what might happen. I can honestly say that not only have I lost 40lbs. but my quality of life has improved greatly. Nobody wants to talk about these types of difficulties but I felt it was important. I know there has to be other people out there that go through these same kind of things. I hope by putting these things out there that maybe someone might be able to be helped in the same way I was. To me losing the weight was just icing on the cake. Learning to eat this way is not difficult. Some of the things I have given up are things I loved to eat, potatoes, gravey, white bread, but the benifits are far more important and I don't ever feel like I'm dieting or going hungry. I will be able to eat like this for the rest of my life and be happy with it. I just want to say thank you to Suzanne Sommers for writing this book. My life is better because of it.
