This is a book that I actually used as part of the reading materials for one of the courses I teach.  For the most part, it is a good, easy to read reference, but there are some negatives.

GOOD THINGS:  The book is easy to read, and the information is evidence based.  The book is written by an RD, so that’s a defininte plus!  There are lots of topics covered from grocery shopping to motivation and behavior modification, and wt. loss surgery options.

NOT SO GOOD THINGS:  The book has not been updated since 2004.  The sections on wt. loss medications and Dietary Guidelines for Americans are a bit archaic.

On the whole, though, it is a simple, and easy to read book for someone wanting a general overviw of aspects of healthy eating and weight control.
