The book itself is Refreshing. It's very personable. I am maybe slightly disappointed with the photography. I know this book is connected with WHM (women's health magazine which I also read) but this is a book and not a magazine. I would like to see more realistic photographs, not stock type images and fashiony feel. Anyway, I like this book. I see no reason, if you are just looking for some fresh tips and ideas for workout, esteem, and healthy eating, why you wouldn't buy this. If you want some elaborate gimmick of a diet than don't buy this. If you are a vegetarian (like I am) and you don't feel compfortable realizing that if a menu item suggests beef you can mentally add tofu or a vege burger instead, this book may be over your head. (haha) This is a light book and I just got it---but it being very sensible, It seems like would surely be effective. I'm gonna try out the "plan".
However, I think there is a lot of good advice in the book about transitioning to healthier thinking about your body image. There is a lot more in here than what to eat and how to exercise.
I liked that it laid out exactly what to eat for several weeks, which took all the guess work out of it for me; as a flexitarian though, I wish it didn't rely so much on meat-based meals. The workouts were great, although they might be a little too intense for beginners. It also had other great tips -- I now can give myself a perfect pedicure.
Being gluten free, the diets were difficult for me to follow and to be honest, I read them, but didn't use them
After the six weeks, I did feel better about myself- especially my balance. Who knows if I really looked better naked, but I felt better for sure.
The shopping list for foods are real foods with suggestions for spices that cover all the ethnic cuisines to have you enjoy what you prepare. The menus offer variety and recipes are not complicated. The exercises are broken down in two groups so you actually do core work and keep the body interested while alternating between strength and metabolic workouts. The pictures are uplifting, whimsical at times and encouraging. The only improvement I could think of is they could have high-lighted the actual muscle group you are working in the photos showing the specific exercise. Go for it!
My only complaints are that the book doesn't really address how to cheat without ruining everything. How can I go through the holidays without completely derailing? Also, bison steak? Really? Can I just eat a regular steak that is a lot cheaper?
