Actress Taylor talks openly about her well-publicized weight gain of several years agohow she went from famous and glamorous to famous and fatand how she lost weight (and an alcohol problem) while gaining the self-esteem necessary to dieting and weight maintenance. The first, biographical, part of the book explains how she gained the weight; the second partperhaps the most valuable for the dieting readeris filled with advice on gearing up mentally for a long-term, successful diet. This book is extremely positive; all the advice makes absolute sense. The remainder of the book includes her diet plan, recipes, and exercise advice. Readable, instructive, and sure to be popular

DIET: Approximately 1000 calorie a day diet, low fat, very low carb -- all you get is 2 bread exchanges a day, altho you do get some fruit, and zero protein for breakfast which would not agree with me. However, it reflects the rhythm of Liz Taylor's daily schedule and would be easy to rearrange to suit your own. Has both diet version and maintenance version.
EXERCISE: Interesting mild toning exercises and I say interesting because Liz had back surgery and back trouble, so it shows what a person can do that can't do much. Her aerobics was swimming or aqua aerobics, but you can use your own.
RECIPES: Very nice! I think this section is worth the price of the book.
I loved the first section of the book where she detailed the physical demands and emotional factors that led to the weight gain, I think the majority of overweight people could find parallels in their own experience here.
to gain so much weight. If Elizabeth could lose the weight, we all can, if we're motivated like she was. I enjoyed it!
