Lots of good information but it's all pretty much common sense. I am a weight loss, self-help book/magazine/website connoisseur (I'm lookin' for that life-changer)and I wouldn't recommend this book for anyone who is similar. It's the basic, "don't finish your meals, make healthy choices at restaurants while still satisfying your cravings, don't eat something just because it's right in front of you, eat your fruits and veggies, drink lots of water..." stuff. Another major downer in my opinion was the recipe section of the book. I think that most women who are trying to lose weight are struggling because of their reliance on convenient food, probably due to the fact that convenience is what their lives allow. Thus, The Skinny's recipes are useless unless you can spend 25 or 30 minutes just making lunch. Also, many of the recipes seem like they'd be pretty pricey.
The book is fun and easy to read and parts of it made me giggle but it definitely is not my life-changer.
