Funny, concise and topical. One of Grady’s Seven Steps is 100 laughs a day – and one of his recommendations is laughter yoga. What? I’d never heard of laughter yoga and then in today’s paper I read about a local group that practices here in my home town.

The diet plan itself is full of common sense and affirmations for success plus there are recipes at the end of the book that sound like they’d be tasty and easy to prepare. I wish he’d said more about exercise other than to do it at the beginnin

Having read several of Mr. Miller's articulate, funny articles in the Canyon News (www.canyon-news.com) and wanting to shed some poundage myself, I decided to read his new book, Lighten Up Now: The Grady Diet, a Diet to Lighten Up Your Mind & Body. Glad I did.

I absolutely loved this book, it's not your typical diet book. Grady Miller doesn't preach, scold, or shame and he writes in a way that everyone can understand. It's a book about his journey through the diet world and written with humor and at the same time practical sense. The 10th chapter is recipes and I will say that I made the Garbanzo beans and beet salad (added a few other beans in it and a splash of raspberry balsamic vinegar) and it was delicious and very filling. It also inspired me to ...more

This is a non-doctor testimonial and approach to losing weight. It gets away from many traditional methods that involve counting calories. The concept is interesting. This was a free review copy.
