This book is phenomenal!!! Changing my life.
This book resonated with me in such a way, it took me 6 months to read it. I kept putting it down because I wanted to really think about it, and not miss a single bit of the wisdom inside. I will be re-reading and rereading this book for years to come. I think it is the kind of book that I will get something different out of each time.
Lots of sound information, wisdom, and advice here. I appreciate her holistic (body/mind/spirit) view of things. Yes, it takes more to lose weight than mere "willpower". As a male reade, my big complaint is that nothing on the cover indicates that it is a book for women. 95% of the advice would be equally relevant to women or men, so why write the book with only a female audience in mind?
Extremely helpful book- helps you find the root of the problem versus just saying "you're fat, eat less and exercise more it's that easy".
