Read in March, 2010

The "how" in the subtitle can be summed up as "I ate less and moved more," which is not exactly groundbreaking news. Gross meanders through her past - a childhood in the suburbs, several months during college in Nepal, life as an adult in the city and the rural Berkshires - looking at her history of yo-yo dieting and couch potato habits. Between the repetitive prose and the muddied timeline, there just isn't much to hold the reader here.
