This book was really motivational in the beginning. The "diet" seemed really moderate and non-restrictive. But after reading through the 2 weeks of meal plans, it seemed really restrictive and not at all appetizing. I'm sure I should try this diet to see if it really does help with energy and mood, but I'm not sure I could stick with it for 2 weeks to see if it helps.
For anyone who wants to live a happy life. You would never believe how much food affects your daily health and mood. Just a few tweaks with my diet and I started feeling phenomenal. It would be great if everyone read this book. It's definitely life-changing and eye-opening. You'll never diet again, instead you'll choose the foods that make you feel great.

Susan Kleiner, an authority on sports nutrition and diet, used her expertise to create an eating plan to appeal to an inactive audience. She speaks to people who are busy and don’t necessarily have time for exercise. However, don’t expect to be let off the hook! Although she requires daily intake of healthy, feel-good foods, she also expects that participants buy a pedometer and reach 10,000 steps each day. The plan consists of a two-week initiation period in which participants follow the plan e...more

Awesome lifestyle book. I'm under a lot of stress (physical and mental) from work (standing all day, lifting heavy books), and after work (doing volunteer work at a community theatre with crazy horrible hours... where I stand for hours...) so I've been searching for relief of some kind. I've been doing vitamins, abusing Starbucks mochas, etc... and to think all I had to do was read this book and make a few changes.

I haven't incorporated all of the changes in the book, but by adding a nightly coc...more
Quick read, and at the outset I was very interested, and was excited to eat healthier and for a "good mood".

But once I hit the "rules" and the 2 week eating plan, I really lost interest quickly - I have never had good luck on a plan where I have to worry about how many servings of what I eat at each meal. If you can follow it, I can only imagine eating well will make anyone feel better and happier, but as soon as I set rules for myself, all I want to do is break each and every one of them. Defi...more
I call this book my "Care and Feeding of Jennifer", because it's exactly what I respond to the best. I'm living a stressful life and I need all the help I can get! It's refreshing to think of my diet as how to best fuel myself, as opposed to what I need to restrict. Going to recommend this to everyone I know.

Great book on eating right and how food affects your mood. It's missing some important info on allergy stuff I'm learning now, and at first all the foods will sound awful (until you stop craving sugar) but I still think it's a good one worth reading.

I like the philosophy in this book to eat food that makes you feel happy. It is a very balanced way of eating, too, and goes right along with the Word of Wisdom. It also has recipes, and I'm always looking for new ones.
I do believe that eating healthy foods can definitely influence your mood in a positive way however, this author goes to extremes. She does not use profanity or graphic sex scenes to make her point however.....hee, hee
I was interested in reading about the role carbohydrates play in mood...and it makes sense. But as a diet, I didn't get it.

I like that this book becomes the guide to following and organizing how to do this meal plan.
