The beauty of this piece is that it deals with weight from every angle - cognitive, emotional and physical. So many works on the market deal with just one at a time, but Dr. Spencer's work provides a blueprint with tactics to manage all three at once to make simple yet effective and lasting change in the reader's life. It also comes in a book that can be read in an afternoon and the reader can start down their new path today.
The concepts Spencer addresses in the book need not only apply to those looking to manage their weight - they provide a foundation for anyone wanting to live a healthy lifestyle. I would recommend this book to anyone who has ever tried a diet and not gotten the results they were looking for, as well as anyone who is serious about leading a healthy life
But if you're like me - I've lost my fair share of pounds over the years and kept most of it off (and read almost every book there is on the topic) - then you'll find some new and interesting points, just not a lot of them. But it's a great book for beginners.
And let me share my favorite passage from the book: "Havind a craving doesn't mean you're hungry!" Or that your body needs that specific food. :) What a concept :)
