If you are looking for a very practical, user friendly, fact based guide to weight control, this is the book for you. The reason I enjoyed this book was because it did not offer any quick fixes or give out any gimmicky recommendations for weight loss. As a Registered Dietitian, I can tell you that the information presented in this book was very evidence based. However, it was distilled down to very easily understood, simple language. I am actually considering using it as an addendum to a weight control course I am teaching next year.
I can’t vouch for any of the recipes since I haven’t tried them, but it was nice that those were included also.
Overall, I highly recommend this book written by Stan Spencer, Ph.D.
