Some people would deduct points from this book because (1) it's not the newest diet book on the shelf and (2) the author was Oprah's diet guru (and her weight loss stuck about as long as it took to get in the car and drive for a cheeseburger). BUT, I loved this book. I still covet many of the recipes, in fact. What I like about Bob Greene's approach is that he acknowledges what we all know... if you don't embrace the lifestyle change, you cannot embrace his diet and exercise suggestions (or anyone's for that matter). He pushes philosophy and mental wellness as much as he pushes calorie counting and raising your heart rate on the treadmill. I find his books inspirational, memorable, and worth revisiting now and then to refresh and renew my enthusiasm for my personal lifestyle renewal. Oh, and PS... yes, that's bread on the cover! He doesn't tell you to stop living to lose weight... there is an acknowledgement we all will crave & encounter bread, so why not learn how to keep it in our lives in an appropriate way.
