Format: Paperback
This is a great book with a lot of valuable information. It is structured really well, and definitely is not a chore to read. I do think some sections could have used some more explanation - for example, the parts about the dangers of soy still left me with a lot of questions (e.g., is it still okay to eat edamame? miso soup?). But, I've been a patient of Aimee's for years, and this book still taught me some things I didn't know. My boyfriend and I just threw out his Flaxseed granola yesterday because it contained soy protein isolate, unbeknownst to us!

My main issue with the book, as others mentioned here, is the repetition of the incredibly annoying phrases like "Come on, girls!" and "Honey." I gave the book to a friend, and she had the same reaction - "Awesome book, but the writer should stop with those annoying phrases." Since I know Aimee does not speak this way in normal life, I am guessing that someone told her to write this way, and it's a shame. In my opinion, it really takes away from otherwise great information with studies to back it up. The book is written in such an approachable, easy to understand way, that it truly does not need these extra "Girls" and "Honey" openers.

Regardless, I highly recommend this book to anyone. It's especially important for females going through any kind of health issue, but there is also GREAT information for regular women and men.

This book is written for a young reader in mind, but all ages can benefit from the wisdom and nutritional knowledge of this very talented author. I am happy that Aimee E Raupp has an office in NYC. If I ever get the time from a very busy schedule, I would love to make an appointment to see Aimee for a personal consultation. Her advice concerning everyday nutrition and developing healthy eatinghabits is well-received, and she lists specific foods to indulge and stay away from! She even includes advice on selecting skincare products and cosmetics, a favorite subject of mine!!

I have read a ton of health and wellness books after taking Clomid to get pregnant two years ago and having a horrible reaction to the drug. I went from running a marathon in October to not being able to walk a mile in December. If I had picked this book up 2 years ago, I would have learned so much in one sitting and been ahead of the game now. Thank you for this book as I have learned so much. Also, I like the author's voice. The book takes tough topics and lightens the message a bit by using humor and a sassy voice. It all worked for me. Again, thanks to the author for taking the time to write this book.

I loved this book! For those that are overwhelmed by the dos and donts of nutrition and healthy living, Aimee breaks it down and makes it very simple. She explains HOW and WHY foods affect or bodies and health for the good and bad. Addressing why organic?, how to identify harmful ingredients and the alias' companies use to slip these things in our food, sample menus and lots of helpfull hints and resources for products and info. Its a quick layman read jam pack with valuable,obtainable information. Highly recommend it, whether a beginner or a guru, there is something here for you.

Don't let the "girl talk" vibe to the book overshadow the message and information. I've been through a lot of health issues and this book really has excellent information, especially for someone just becoming more health conscious. I've recommended to other friends, who've also liked it and have been able to benefit.

Great book that gets to the core of living a happy, healthy life. While society now raises women not to eat, sleep, or relax, Aimee clarifies exactly what it takes to feel our best, in a simple and entertaining manner every woman can appreciate.

I gave this book 4 stars for 2 reasons. 1, I feel like the author tries a little too hard to connect to her female audience and it's a bit of a turn off. She constantly uses phrases like 'Girl', 'Let's go Ladies', and on one page, she used the phrase 'Come on girls' three times. It's just a bit too much. 2nd, I don't like the fact that she promotes eating meat over being vegetarian. It's completely possible to get all your necessary nutrients without eating meat. In fact, it's healthier. Plus, I feel that she contradicts herself when she talks about eating a 'nondead' diet, but isn't meat from a slaughtered, dead animal?

Overall, she offers a lot of good information that is straightforward. I recommend reading it, but keep an open mind. Don't let it sway you too much if you're committed to not eating meat.

This book had a lot of great information. Some things I didn't agree with such as having to eat meat and the vodka bit. Overall though I loved the authors way of writing. I felt as though it was my best friend giving me great advice.
