There were some very useful tips in this book, especially if you are struggling to lose weight and are attempting to eat healthier. I think I might even use some of the rules (i.e., it's okay to eat junk food as long as you make it yourself... I think this will really work for me, because while I LOVE junk food, I'm also lazy, so if I have to make any junk food I eat, I'm likely to eat way less than I do now). My main problem with the book is I feel the author really struggled to get it to be long enough to be publishable; about half the pages have just a picture on them and most of the rules are a short sentence (which also takes up a whole page)... I literally finished this book in an hour, which is great, I guess, because I could move on to another book, but bad for people who bought it. Luckily, I borrowed this one from someone at work, so I didn't just eat $11. I would have been really upset had I bought it, especially since I could have read the entire thing while waiting in line at Barnes and Noble, which is what I would recommend to anyone wanting to read this.
