What this book advises is essentially what I've been doing but without the heavy tracking load. For those who don't think they can stick to writing down everything they eat, the tips and tricks Boulette offers will be helpful. I especially appreciated his mentioning breathing techniques; it reminded me of doing pranayama when I was first initiated into transcendental meditation in 1968 and how great it made me feel, how balanced and grounded in my body, how healthy. So that's something I'm not doing that I'm going to add back in.
This is not a gimmicky "diet" book that has you doing something for so many weeks or months and then you are magically skinny. Boulette tells it like it is: weight loss involves a lifestyle change, and it's more about being healthy than wearing a certain size clothing. Take it from someone who had dieted herself into morbid obesity: There's no getting around the fact that you have to change your entire approach to food. It doesn't mean you will never ever be able to have a few slices of pizza, but you can't pig out on pizza every day. "Everything in moderation" is a good mantra, and that includes moderating the amount of time you spend sitting on your butt. That said, I don't exercise nearly as much as the author does—but I need to!
