When I consider buying something, I check the best reviews and I also check the worst and medium reviews. And I did that before buying this book. So here's the real story about this book.

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.

I'm a 50 year old mother of 2 (18 & 15) ; a music teacher working with elementary aged kids... Following a hysterectomy 3 years ago I started to gain weight and my self esteem was taking a real dive. So, in January I decided to return to the gym. I had been dieting and exercising almost every morning for several months and had lost 11 lbs, when I hit the dreaded plateau! 3 weeks... no loss. So I started to research and found this book. After the first 2 days I had dropped 6 pounds and one clothing size. At the end of the first week I had dropped an additional 3 pounds for a total of 9 in one week. 4 other women at the gym noticed that I was looking thinner and asked what I was doing. I shared the basics of the plan and within two days they had purchased the book and started on the plan, most with similar results. After the first week (which was easy to follow as I watched the inches & weight melt away), I moved on to phase 2 & 3 of the plan and while the loss has slowed... it is still moving in the right direction and I do not feel in any way like I'm hungry, or missing out on an occasional "treat".

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!

I need to lose 20 pounds I gained over the last two or three years & tried several diets. This one is filling the bill. It's very simple & incorporates some ingredients I was already using for good health. I don't need to prepare specific menus & I find it easier to do without certain foods rather than cut down. In 5 weeks I have lost 11 1/2 lbs and will definitely keep on going. My all over aches & pains have lessened as my excess weight is lost. I've stopped taking ibuprofen at night to alleviate them. I can definitely maintain this way of eating as a life style once I've reached my goal. I might add I'm a 78 yr. old female so I'd say the simple plan will work for most anyone.

I love the simplicity of this diet and the common sense a lot of us dont have when we'er going though our weight loss/gain cycles. I am 26 and would like to maintain a weight that I'm happy with for years by the time I'm 30. Anyways, to cut to the chase, I have just completed my 3rd day losing 5 pounds and 1.25 inches around my thighs. I have had almost no cravings, besides a few very weak ones. I believe I have a sensitivity to carbs, causing very strong cravings I eventually give into. I plan on experimenting with the authors 2 maintenance options to see what works best 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).

I couldnt think of a better title. It's just not good. this is someone with no education or expertise in nutrition other than "I lost 70 lbs a really long time ago and kept it off"
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
