Love this book and have read it twice already. I even recommended it to my sister who has done the same!! She has honest advice and really good ideas on realistically losing weight and keeping it off. So much rang true with me and I loved her ideas, especially those relating to dealing with people who try to "help" you when you are dieting.

It doesn't promote ridiculous instant, quick fix, weight loss methods, it's more about lifestyle change and healthy eating. It also emphasises a "do it in your own time" ideal which is so much healthier than other books I've seen and read.

She is American so it's written that way but you can relate it back to wherever you are.

There is also a website that you can contact the author on with questions!

I highly recommend this if you are ready to make that change!

This book is very encouraging and I took away a lot of helpful tips on how to change my lifestyle habits. I would say this is best as a book and not an ebook, as this would have made running back over previous steps easier.

This really is a lovely book; she comes across as very down to earth, no silly pep talks, just an honest account of her own struggles, which are easy to empathise with. In terms of aiding weight loss, it is not exactly a 'diet book' but her honestly makes it easy to see how weight loss can be achieved, and will definietly spur a lot of people into healthy action.

Bought this book having read a one-pager in Runner's World magazine. I'm not a current or former fat girl but my brain really wants me to be fat and I completely identify with a lot of the food and determination issues discussed in the book. I found a lot of what is in the book really useful and have been able to survive christmas without gaining weight this year as a result of some of the advice in the book. I really recommend this book to anyone who struggles with the "why can't I be like everyone else" question or who sometimes eats fattening food that they don't really want/need. It's a quick, easy read with tips that really will change your life if you're ready for it.
