Well written, honest, gritty and entertaining·····
The diet itself works for her, its around a 1000 calories a day based mainly on food (packets) from a diet manufacturer. She eats something every 2-3 hours.What actually works for Freya is that she sticks to it 100% percent which I think is somewhat easier to do when you're buying food this way and this is the secret; all the food choices have been taken away. (I say easier, she does say many times thst she was constantly hungry throughout but that she squares up to the thought that hunger isn't an emergency, she won't die for the want of a sandwich for a couple of hours).
I dont know how she will fare long term. As I understand it you can still be a fat person(ality) in a thin body through sheer brute force of iron will which is a fragile situation whereas the other book is attempting to get to the core of how we so often wind up fat and resolving this more systemically.
For what this book is, it's very good. She finds a solution that works for her and there is a bit of deeper phychology here if you can be bothered to think about that. You have to rate books in their own right, not trash them because a certain methodology doesn't appeal to you and her method isn't going to suit everyone but you could still take away some good ideas like pre planing, pre measuring and preparing a week or even just a day's menu ahead of time so that when it's dinner time and you open the fridge the choices aren't endless.

So, I would recommend to anyone wanting to read an honest discussion of her emotions. I was dismayed to see the link to Facebook and her blog no longer work so think she may have regained it or something else happened to make her no longer reach out for support from others.
Taking the journey with her in two books, I would like to see how she is doing and follow her journey. If anyone knows, I'd appreciate the update.
