Recommended for: EVERYONE- I'm annoying everyone I know by raving about it. :-)
Read in June, 2008

Life changing for me. It's marketed as a diet book and I NEVER would have picked it up based on that but Jenna swore it would change my life. . .and it did!
This book is great because it provides basic nutrition information and provides summaries of medical/health studies to help educate you and provide motivation to eat healthy. You can tell me a million times to eat my fruit not drink it but if you tell me exactly what happens in my body suddenly I think "Oh! I don't want to do that" and I don't want to drink juice anymore.
Dr. Fuhrman has read HUNDREDS of medical studies and condenses his findings so that I don't have to go read them all. He also debunks a lot of the fad diets out there. If you're LDS, you might think, "gee a lot of this sounds familiar." I re-read the word of wisdom and was shocked to realize how much I WASN'T living the part that was about what we SHOULD be doing.
Wonderful motivator, wonderful education tool and even though I didn't intend to use this as a weightloss tool, I lost 15 pounds this summer! Take into account that I was still losing baby weight and was nursing but I didn't increase my exercise, I was swimming 2-3 times a week, and just increasing my fruits/veggies consumption and cutting out a lot of meat, dairy & unrefined foods made all the difference!
