Kudos to Shannon Sorrels for telling it like it is, informing us and entertaining us at the same time. She explains the science of nutrition and fat-burning in a way that even us non-science geeks can understand, and remember. And her motivational, down-to-earth style make this such an interesting read... I highly recommend it!
The author cuts through years of hyper-marketed diet and exercise plans to bring you the truth: weight management really is simple in principle and is within reach of Everyman, but we manage to overcomplicate it to the point of making it very, very difficult. Sorrels zeroes in on core principles and helps readers to plan their own improvement with frank and honest intent. The content is well researched (and cited) and makes no effort to convince the reader that success will be easy. Instead she sets realistic expectations, outlines a simple plan and warns of common pitfalls and how to avoid or recover from them.
For anyone concerned with weight loss or even weight management, this book will be worth the cover price and much more. The only down side? Try recommending a book called "...Then Just Stay Fat" to someone.
This is actually a very good book, and contains all that you need to lose weight (by which I mean achieve a BMI below 25).
The last 1/3 of the book contained the real gems - but I highly recommend reading it completely.
I read some of the negative reviews written here, and they do not surprise me. Those who sharply criticize Sorrels' work are looking for someone to accept their rationalizations as to why they "can't" lose weight. Sorrels pulls no punches - she tells it like it is. Yes losing weight is hard, yes it will be uncomfortable, yes it will take a LOT longer than you want it to take, and yes - if you really want to - you can do it.
I hope the author follow-up this work with something addressing weight maintenance for the long-haul.
I was injured on the job 7 years ago and have been unable to exercise like I once could. But I LOVE to eat. If you love to eat and can't exercise and want to stay trim, it can be a problem.
I've lost five lbs since reading this a
month ago (and I wasn't trying to lose weight). The author just cuts through ALLLLL the BS that we are fed in this country about diet and exercise that keeps us the country with the largest eating disorder ever. I have had anxiety about "dieting" and what I "should" and "shouldn't" eat and how to lose weight "the right way" for years. Tho I've read the whole book I pick it up and read
It for inspiration. Doesn't even matter where you start. Just pick a chapter and read and it is stands alone to motivate.
I honestly think this is the BEST "weight loss" book I have EVER read and I'm 50 and have read a LOT on the subject.
