It works. You can lose weight!

This book is THE solution to weight loss: becoming aware of your portions. It works. I suggest you try it. My co-worker lost weight using this book, so I decided to try it for myself. Don't worry--you will not have to eat tiny portions or count calories, and be hungry, and it does not even feel like a diet. Young provides tips, tricks, and solutions for every situation you may be faced with and for every eating style around. The 30 day diary helps alot.

Same as the first except in the back there is a 30day portion tracker. But either way the information is great. The first book has helped me to lose 30 pounds so far. I'll keep this book at work and leave the other at home.

The book does an excellent job of explaining how those super-size portions

we buy relate to what a normal size meal should look like. Young will help

anyone trying to drop a few pounds without feeling like they are a rigid

diet. And they won't be hungry!! Great guidelines to follow both for adults

and children. I love the sample meal plans, snacks and visuals. And the

timelines tracking how portions have crept up is an amazing eye opener.

Great book!

We all think there is some "magic" way to loose weight. But it's all in how much you eat verses how much you burn off. As a nurse, this book speaks the the truth. It's all about moderation and portion control. I would highly recommend this to someone like me, who is wanting to get some pounds off.

The Portion Teller Plan adds to Ms. Young's prior book, The Portion Teller. In this book, she provides a number of helpful work sheets. These let readers / eaters track what and how much they consume. Further, The Portion Teller Plan is a paperback, so it is easy to carry around (like to restaurants).

As in The Portion Teller, Young says that bad diet and weight gain come more from how MUCH we eat than from what we eat. The Portion Teller Plan is full of useful, practical advice on how to correctly estimate and control portion sizes. The examples are terrific. The small boxed-in reality checks are both amusing and, to some extent, shocking.

I found Th Portion Teller Plan to be fascinating , with all sorts of interesting facts, stories and tidits. More importantly, this book is a practical, real-world, useful, tested means of taking control of your diet and managing your weight. I highly recommend it.

I really love this book. Dr. Young does a great job of explaining what foods our body needs, which food groups food belongs in, and how to measure how much of something to eat. This is a super easy plan that trains your body. I started loosing weight immediately and months later, I still notice if I am following my portion plan or not.
