Editorial Reviews

Review

Scientific American, February 2015
"This is possibly the best book on weight loss ever written."

Taste for Life 9/1/15
“For those who are tired of quick-fix diets, the approach to weight control outlined in this book may be a welcome relief. There are no strict rules about what and how much you can eat. Instead you’ll find a psychological and commonsense approach to losing weight and sustaining that loss long-term. Information on how to analyze your habits and follow a week-by-week plan to make gradual and lasting changes is offered.”
