This is not your typical Diet book where they tell you to abstain from one food and eat more of the other with no scientific reasoning. You can tell that the author really did her homework for this book. She has included all the references at the end of each chapter, making it easy to go and look at the individual studies that she was talking about.
Furthermore, the advice she gives is no-nonsense and to the point. She gives you the scientific and medical reasoning behind her advice and she is not trying to sell you some “miracle” substance that will magically make you slim. This is actually what got me interested in reading this book. I don’t usually pick up diet books, because this is a multi-billion dollar industry and our avg waist size is increasing in alarming numbers. This book helps you get over the excuses you give yourself that are self-defeating in the end and I am sure that this book, if followed carefully will help you lose the weight and keep it off.
