When I checked my email one morning and saw that I won this book from Goodreads First Reads program, I immediately got excited. As the days went on before I received the book, that excitement turned to dread. Another diet book, I thought. Yippee. I figured I would read it anyway.

Interesting book with stories about how people lost weight. The vast majority lost over 100 lbs. They were successful using various diets and most of them had tried different types of diets.
