This book stores a beautiful job of tying in the law of attraction, natural instinct, self motivation, and health. It was a great and easy read.

This book is big on the `laws of attraction' nonsense/scam. Reason enough to ignore it all by itself. The author says we can `achieve literally anything' with our brains. This of course is true, if you literally ignore the billions of exceptions to this concept. Sigh.
The author says we don't stick to cabbage soup diets long term because we get bored. So...nothing to do with the fact they lack so many essential nutrients and macro-nutrients such as protein and fat that our bodies would of course be screaming at us to eat better to be healthy and have energy then? If we could just be excited somehow by eating endless cabbage soup we'd stick to the diet fine and enjoy perfect health forevermore? What a load of nonsense. Yes, advice to exercise endlessly and to eat very low calorie and high carb is working so well for people so far. Of course that makes sense.
If you eat real food you don't have to fuss with endless strategies to stop you overeating. Overeating is linked to junk food, and nutritionally empty food and very high sugar and carb consumption etc. This book is full of silly quick fixes and tricks and ignores most of the real problems and their causes.
The author writes about evolution and how this affects what we should eat but this is based on his own short random musings, rather than any actual research or even deep thought. The arrogance of putting your own silly thoughts on a topic in a book and trying to advise people that way instead of researching it is kind of mind blowing.
This book is very badly researched and written. It should be avoided. It does contain a few okay bits about avoiding junk food, but then so does every ¼ page trashy magazine article on diet, and probably more convincingly. This book can only appear good if you haven't come across even a half good nutrition book ever. It misses out so much vital information and research. There are so many better book choices out there, don't waste your time with this (even if you get it free on Kindle like I did).

There is a section in the back of the book with exercises (pictures included.) But truly, I don't think I'm going to be reading this book all the way through. It's just so simplistic. I think any one of us who has been on the weight loss roller coaster could have written this book themselves.
If putting the healthy things in the front of the pantry and burying the junk-type foods in the back really worked, we'd already be doing it. (Yes, that is one of the suggestions.)
The good news is that the book is worth every penny I paid. (Zip)
While I think it is useful I find it a bit hard to stay concentrated on this book!
If you are tired of dieting and do not have the time or motivation to sign up with a gym, here you will find simple strategies and practical advice on changing your way of thinking, eating and exercising, which will produce lasting and sustainable change in your shape, self esteem and lifestyle.
I have been doing the exercises outlined in the book for more than a year now and I can confirm their great effect on my health, flexibility and energy levels.
As everything else in life implementing the advice given it the book and getting the desired results will require some effort, time and persistence.
I love the sequence of changing one's habits, outlined in the book. Starting with the change of one's thinking is fundamental, as every action of ours is preceded by a thought.
Our repetitive thoughts become our believes. Our believes determine our actions. Our repetitive actions become our habits. Our habits shape our behavior and our character.
So every change should and inevitably will start with a change of mind.
Get this short and practical book, you wont regret it.
