Many or most of the worst reviews have something to do with it being a blank book or only available for a Kindle or something like that. Clearly, those people had some kind of problem downloading it or something. I ordered the paperback book and I received a paperback book (103 pages). You can basically disregard the bad reviews that talk about that issue.
Now, as for the content of the book... Yes, it is about substituting some meals with smoothies/protein shakes. When I first read that, I thought it was pretty lame since part of the title is "Simple and Easy Meal Preparation". So you might buy the book expecting "meal preparation" ideas - you're not expecting it to tell you to use meal replacement shakes. In my mind, I was remembering back to the 80s when I knew some people using one of the commercially available shake products like Slimfast. So it didn't seem like anything new but what the heck, it's not an expensive book so I ordered it anyway to see if I could get something from it since some people were having success with it. FYI, it appears to be a book that was self-published by someone who came up with this plan on his own and has used it to keep weight off for many years.
When I got it and read through it, I had a similar reaction to some of the other people who complain that it's nothing new, it's about protein shakes, etc. And I almost posted a rather negative review here because of it. But then I thought I shouldn't do that without at least trying it.Read more ›
If you are struggling to loose weight ... this might be just what you are looking for. I hope it works as well for you as it has for me!
One piece of advice: taking a B-Complex vitamin for energy if you need it. I take the liquid form (it cost about $2.50/month).
Here's the book -
1. eat lots of lean protein, substitute some meals with a protein powder/water/green powder/psillium(sp?) drink, add some vegggies at dinner and dont eat fruit - it has too much sugar.
2. exersize - walk mostly, do it really fast or in intervals. lift some weights on occasion...do it in really cold weather and you *might* burn more calories.
3. one you reach your goal, if you gain more than X number of pounds, have a plan to lose it.
Seriously - that's the entire book. Dont waste your money. Not even worth 2.99
