This is a great book. It is full of what seems to me to be solid scientific information. The authors break the information down into layman's terms and explain the importance of everything thoroughly. There were several corny jokes sprinkled throughout the book which may be distracting to some, but I personally found that it kept me interested and more involved with the reading. Without the jokes, this would probably have read like a text book. Great book! I feel much more informed and less intimidated after reading it. ( )

This book is alright I suppose, but it was a bit boring to me. I was mistaken in what I thought it would contain. I thought it explained everything in much more detail than I was interested in. If you're looking for something that will inspire you during your dieting, you won't find it in here. If you're looking for clinical descriptions and how your body processes food, this is the book for you. ( )

I am on Weight Watchers and wanted to use this book as supplement to that program. The book has good suggestions but does not mention Weight Watchers at all. The book emphasizes exercise and right eating as most diet books do. The problem of weight loss lies with the individual and their choices. ( )
