Format: Paperback
If you know the basics about dieting or nutrition this will leave you feeling frustrated, impatient and out of pocket. This book is suitable for the absolute novice, someone that has never heard of "cardio" or "aerobics" and thinks eating from a smaller plate and avoiding second helpings are revolutionary ideas. For anyone that has ever been on a diet the messages in this book will seem so basic as to be insulting: eat breakfast, control food portions, don't overeat, do exercise, watch your fats and carbs, don't eat empty calories and don't splurge at the weekend. Duh! What annoyed me the most about this book is that I bought it because I wanted to know the "lazy" way to lose weight (after all, that is the title of the book!). However, there is nothing lazy about the diet on offer - because yes, this is a diet, even though the author would have you think it was a way of life. I wanted to find out more about the mental side of weight loss and whilst this book included a chapter on the psychology of weight loss it was far too brief to be really helpful. Even worse, as the book progressed, the author started coming across more and more as a smug thin person, keen to remind the reader of how she managed to lose weight and run marathons and fit into skinny jeans, the implication being that if she managed to do it then there really is no excuse for you not to do the same. What the author fails to acknowledge is that she was "lucky" enough to reach rock bottom which prompted her to start losing weight in the first place. In other words, she had a strong "why". Without a strong "why" you have to rely on will power which can only take you so far. My suggestion: try Paul McKenna's "I can make you thin" or "Psychocybernetics"- they will help to address the mental aspects of weight loss. The "Lazy Girl's Guide" is misleading and disappointing, give it a miss unless you really don't know the first thing about weight loss.

Helpful book that has got me up off the sofa and onto my feet more often, and eating more healthily. I've even bought a copy for my sister too.

I was real disappointed that I did not receive this book. I waited for a month and then found out it had not been shipped. I was reimbursed but I would have rather had the book.

Worst book I've Started Reading 7 Dec 2011
By Amy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is not what I expected. To be honest I don't like the language she uses. It isn't very professional, and it relates only to those that are massive not just a couple of pounds overweight. She speaks about her own experience but hey everyone is different & has different roles to play in life. She doesn't sound like she has any professional degrees in health etc because of the way she writes. I didn't finish this book, in fact I'm planning on selling it again as it wasn't my style of a book. The lingo/language really was a put off. We are all humans and should speak more respectfully! The best weight/healthy-eating book that I would recommend is French Woman Don't get Fat
