disappointing nothing new here
on 21 September 2014
This book seemed like it had lots of potential from reading the blurb but it is basically a rehash of advice from glossy magazines, quite boring and preachy in places and little that is her personal story.
Although the advice would work for maintaining weight loss there was very little discussion of how she actually lost the weight other than the fact it took 3 years and involved some slips along the way. There was also no clear diet plan in this book? There is some contradictory advice within it too, in her typical day example she has coffee and a wholegrain biscuit at 7 then a brunch at 10 am but elsewhere says she doesn't eat bread during the week and that biscuits should be avoided. Similarly she argues that restaurants displaying calories is unhealthy and it is all about the quality of food while later she compares treats based on their calorie content.
