The authors provide sound nutritional and exercise advice for those that are motivated to get themselves into better shape. I do not find the authors advice to be overly difficult to follow, but I might be in the minority. I recently switched to a mostly vegan lifestyle for health reasons. It is amazing what all of us can do or accomplish when we are properly motivated.
I have summarized my observations regarding the books content below.
1. Sound recommendations that all of us have read before backed up by personal experience
2. Easy to read and understand
3. Detail adequate for the general audience
4. Provides exercises for both the home and the gym

Let me say that I am extremelly impressed by the Latakos twins thorough relation of increasing my metabolism to shed the weight that has been so hard to lose. This book is incredible and I feel that it has set me up to finally succeed. It explains the way the body works to fully capitalize on increasing the amount of calories I burn throughout the day.
I totally recommend this book to only people that are serious not only about losing weight, but to educate themselves so they can participate in a healthy lifestyle forever. This is the best twelve dollars I have spent in 2004. My appreciation and thanks go out to the authors.
Throughout the book there are tips on certain food groups and/or individual brands of food. It also includes Myth busters which reviews certain myths about food with updated info. Chapter 5 Favoring Fabulous Fats provides plenty of information that will help manage fat intake and power up metabolism. Additionally, I like the self dietary experiments that the two presented ie What happens to your body when you skip breakfast? Lack of sleep? Not enough water?
