Due to come out this month, I found this book at our favorite book store I am so excited about this Our book store often has books that are sent to book reviewers before they come out These book reviewers are over run by books and donate them to our book store This is the first one I am reviewing before the book comes out It comes out on Monday, so ok, not that early, but anyway The author is the Chief Medical Editor at NBC News Does anyone have faith in the news with respect to medicine after t [...]

I think I m obsessed with reading diet health books And not because I m trying to find the secret easy answer to health and weight management because I like to keep this topic at the forefront of my brain so I don t let myself use the non excuse of I didn t know or I forgot Anyway, I love Dr Nancy Snyderman from the Today Show, so I thought I d check this new book of hers out It s not ground breaking It s not things I didn t know But it s always good to reiterate what good habits should be Dr S [...]

This was a worthwhile read Basically the author advocates a low fat diet between 1,200 1,500 calories Nothing fancy, no low carb, no high protein There are truth boxes on many pages that explain health phenomena in detail.
Read through it in one day Very practical I agree with everything she says except on the chapter about supplements Everyone should be taking whole food supplements whether you are are at your ideal weight or still working on it.
This was an okay book but it really didn t tell me anything new in regards to changing my diet The author did do a good job in adding examples from her life to illustrate the reasoning behind the why certain deit myths are true or false.
First step Go to the table of contents, read what this book has to offer Select the chapter that is of interest, read and move on You don t need to waste time with redundant information or something that is not applicable to you That is how I advice people when it concerns a self help book.
I enjoyed the tone, but felt it didn t say anything I hadn t read about dieting I think she does make good points about taking time for yourself, eating better foods getting in a healthy mindset Dr Snyderman has a good outlook on life, that I enjoyed.
Good tips Very simple to flip through, read a piece, compute and move on Some good personal anecdotes as well I like those examples They re always encouraging.
Fad free, common sense approach to eating healthy and dieting without depriving yourself of the good things in life.
This is a good book that helps to remind me about good habits to get into and stay with
3 whole pages about Shape Up Somerville, including calling the mayor a health nut p.141 That project embraced the view, also in this book, that your weight is not your fault, which we recognize as obvious when we focus on children but I think we don t always extend the same charity to adults.I guess I ve read so many diet nutrition books that not much sounded new in this one But then again maybe not much is new when our bodies metabolism evolve over thousands of years I felt like this book valid [...]
This is by far one of the most meaningful books I have read in a long time I really enjoyed the information as well as the style the information was presented in I suggest this book to anyone who is interesting in adopting a diet that is low fat, low calorie, but still has room for cabs and treats It follows the basic theories of calories in, calories out, simple as that It also gives a lot of information on where to use your carb and fat percentages After a couple of people read it and had posi [...]
Rounding up from 2.5 There really wasn t anything new here She takes a low fat approach to dieting, which honestly, has not really ever worked for me She advises lots of fruits, vegetables, and exercise I don t think there s really any debate over those I think some of the information is already outdated, especially around fats From the title, I think I was looking for of a myth busters sort of style, but this is really just another diet book, and not a terribly compelling one.
Not aimed at me, aimed at people who yo yo diet, who try the latest diet fad, and take supplements Not much new info except that pear shapes won t decrease thigh size through cycling another reason to avoiding spinning classes Quite readable Never heard of her before Good basic info about dieting, maintaining weight, exercise, and food.
Actually, the content is a little boring but I did learn a lot and wasreminded a lot of how to eat balanced, so it was good Sometimes, it s necessary to remind oneself that a lifestyle of bagels and muffinsdoesn t really do it
Not much new information, and I truthfully couldn t sift through all the text However, the fun little information boxes were easy to read.
This was pretty interesting, but I just lost interest after a while.
The book is easy to read and factual However, there just not a whole lot of new information here.
Interesting factsI have followed the diet at the end of the book for about two weeks So far I feel better and I lost a little weight.
Repetitious about telling you what is obvious If you eat healthy and exercise, there s a good chance you can lose some weight Some interesting little factoids made it somewhat worth my time.
