In high school I got fed up with my body. In the middle of my junior year, I decided to change that. I found out that I was ignorant of how to lose weight so I began to read books such as The Diet for Teenagers Only, Toning for Teens: The 20-Minute Workout that Makes You Look Good and Feel Great!, and Weight Loss Confidential: How Teens Lose Weight and Keep It Off -- and What They Wish Parents Knew. I found that they were filled with valuable information on not only how to lose weight but how to become healthy. I have lost 60 lbs. to this day by changing my eating habits and getting active. I had the perfect eating/fitness routine until I got to college... then it all changed! I purchased this book to help me become aware of the traps we fall into in college. It is VERY informative and helpful. It ranges from teaching you what to avoid, what's necessary for survival, and even what to eat during an "all nighter." I recommend this book to anyone that wants to change their lifestyle completely or to someone that just needs a refresher in the course of healthy living. It is also an enjoyable read!

I have given this book as a graduation gift to several girls going off to college and have had very positive responses. I really like Daphne Oz. She is not only a college graduate who experienced weight gain in college but has studied at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and the Natural Gourmet Institute which give her great credibility in my mind.

A perfect book for basic health and easy to follow ideas about food and exercise. Does not rant, has humor and takes into consideration there are always "what ifs" that pop up with food and eating out. I gave it as a gift, and she liked it!

This is a really informative, interesting, and inspiring book. It had all of the information I wanted to know without sounding dry like a textbook. Everything in here is applicable to people of any age- it's just aimed at college girls because it is typically the first time they are responsible for their own decisions. Everything suggested in the book is totally doable (it isn't a diet at all, it's just explaining the importance and benefits of being conscious about what you're eating and when you're eating it as well as why "diets" don't work).
There are plenty of lists throughout the book with recommendations of what you should and shouldn't eat and why it is good or bad for you. It is full of fascinating facts about foods and nutrition in general.
Most importantly, this book gives me the confidence to know eating healthily isn't a challenge and it won't hinder my college experience (or my college experience won't hinder my health).

I bought this book for my daughter who is in college. Her first year took a toll on her diet, exercise and previously healthy lifestyle, so I gave this to her to help her improve her overall well-being. The first thing she said after starting the book was, "this book is about me!" She has devoured the book and picked up many great tips on improving things from now on. (Some things I thought I had told her, but mom's word is not often listened to). Therein lies the beauty of this book. It is written by a young women in language and attitude of the young, so it is very easily read and digested by college age kids (young working adults too). It is well laid out and extremely readable. The advice is excellent and there are many sensible (and student relevant) tips that can be easily followed. Knowing that Dr. Mehmet Oz (the author's father) is the medical backing to this book makes it an extremely safe and recommended guide for young people just starting their life away from home.
