Every January you can count on me checking out at least one healthy eating or weight loss book, and there are certainly plenty of these books out there to choose from. As a baby boomer, this new book seemed like a wise choice.

Although I enjoyed this book, I have to admit that there wasn't much in the way of new information. I think we all know, as the book suggests, we should: limit eating out, choose healthy snacks like nuts, baby carrots and low fat dairy choices. Also, eat more fish instead o
Overall, it seems more like a draft than a finished edition. The "new" in this diet could be presented in one page -- drink 2 cups of black coffee a day is the only new thing I remember. Otherwise, it's the same advice we've been receiving for years -- eat whole grains, lots of fruits and vegetables, eat a variety of foods, use olive oil instead of butter, drink water instead of soft drinks and cut down on the alcohol. All good advice, but not new, and really rather vague. Other than noting that ...more

I didn't really think this would offer any new advise, but I was disappointed that it wasn't at well edited. The recipes look fine but I doubt the number of servings are accurate. I couldn't imagine eating a turkey sandwich made with 2 cups of chopped turkey.

I do think there are some sound ideas and plan to implement them a few at a time. Healthier eating, exercise and enough sleep all make perfect sense to me. I don't care for meal plans that specify exactly what to eat for every mean with no o

There isn't much new here. Those of us who've been around long enough to be interested in an AARP publication have probably seen almost all of it before.

I have one major complaint: there's no nutritional analysis at all given with the recipes. None. Yes, the author has said that he doesn't think we need to count calories. (Maybe, maybe not; your mileage almost surely will vary.) Did he also decide that no one needs to know just how many grams of sugar, salt, or anything else is in these? If you
This book pulls together many of the recommendations for a healthy diet into one plan. As someone who reads health and diet books, I did not find much new information. I would recommend this book to anyone who currently eats the unhealthy stereotypical american diet. It provides an easy to follow plan to eat for health. It would be less helpful for those who already eat fairly healthily. Although this book many times recommends eating more fruits and vegetables, it only includes 5 servings per d ...more
I have read tons of diet books and i've been on tons of diets. There is absolutely nothing unique or new in this book. Nothing about why we eat. You have to be living under a rock if you don't know soda is bad for you or eat a variety of fruit and vegetables. I can't believe the people profiled in this book kept their weight off after a year.

A good refresher with decent recipes aimed at boomers. I followed the menus far less than religiously and lost 6 pounds in a month.
