it was amazing
Read from December 18, 2011 to January 12, 2012

From my perspective, most people are looking for shortcuts and promises of a magic pill that will finally help them get into shape.

So a book like this, with it's very common-sensical and some would say "not new" conclusions about many of the ways we over-eat tends to get overlooked by the masses. Of course, because the fundamentals of being in shape are boring and don't have a new car smell doesn't mean that they aren't valuable.

The most valuable insights in this book are actually incredibly intuitive, so it won't catch you off guard. However, to really understand where the average person is going wrong in their diet is almost always related to these incredibly simple ideas.

If you're looking for the next gimmick to eating in a manner that helps maintain a healthy body weight, look elsewhere. If you want a better understanding of the connection between how we make decisions on foods on a day-to-day basis, this book is incredibly straight-forward and easy to understand.

5 stars for this gem.
