Since getting the book a little more than a week ago I've already lost 3 pounds. That's quite an accomplishment so far because all other so called weight loss books that I've read over the past 10-15 years did almost nothing to help. Another great thing is that the author has a sense of humor making this an entertaining and fun book to read. Each chapter provides you with numerous tools and tips to help you lose weight more effectively.
I only have 2 minor objections. Some of the exercises provided actually do little to help in my opinion. For example listing excuse strategies is unnecessary. Anyone trying to lose weight knows that excuses have hindered their progress. Just being aware of the excuses is sufficient for me. Also the author is a weight loss coach and constantly refers to those she helps as "clients". To me this word "client" is not appropriate for us "overweight" people. Perhaps it would be more appropriate for those involved in a lawsuit. Nevertheless, the author does a terrific job of explaining how to lose weight.
Overall this book is very well written and can definitely help with the weight loss battle. I think everyone is different, however, which means that some parts of the book can be ignored while other parts should be taken very seriously. I definitely recommend this book to all who, like me, have tried and tried but can't lose much weight. This is definitely the best book I've read about weight loss because it's unique, truthful and effective.
