5.0 out of 5 stars It Really Works, 7 Jan 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Neris and India's Idiot-Proof Diet: From Pig to Twig (Paperback)
I have read through the paperback version which, as the previous reviewer says, has been edited. When it came out in hardcover I and two friends bought it and followed it faithfully. One of us lost the stone she had planned to lose, I lost two and half stone and the other lost two stone. Two of us, including me, haven't slipped up in a year. I found it very entertaining and an excellent prop when my willpower needed strengthening. It isn't easy but there is so much sense about why we eat and general psychology that it's comparable to having a friend with you. I believe I have finally accepted that I cannot continue to stuff food at will without damaging my health. My blood pressure has dropped from 148/92 to 120/78 and the threat of medication has been avoided. I have tried other ways of losing weight, included Atkins, and this is the first time in 50 odd years I have found a sensible, sustainable eating regime - for life.

Recommend "The Sixty-Second Motivator" for those who have trouble sticking with a diet or exercise program.

thanks for writing this review, I too have BP issues and am on tablets, am only 40, so have bought this book and am awaiting its arrival. Fingers crossed it works for me too. ;)
