A bit too technical in some spots (textbook-like) but still very interesting and helpful.
I really liked the reminder that you have to change eating patterns gradually to retrain your tastebuds. That you aren't going to go from eating fastfood daily to eating a black bean and couscous casserole overnight. -to just make gradual changes and not try to overdo it because that's what sets you up for failure.
I also liked the idea when talking about cravings, especially chocolate - to not take chocolate away completely, that only sets you up for a binge later. Instead give yourself, for example, 3 Hershey kisses (I'm going to have to have my husband do the rationing for me!) before the craving hits and that will actually keep the craving away.
Good stuff just a lot of it!
