I was really surprised and pleased with this book.
I read it in about two days. I liked how it was broken down into simple sections of each person's tale. It covered a wide range of ways that people lost weight and often mentioned that must people used multiple methods. This book was very inspiring to read and left me feeling hopeful.

Interesting book with stories about how people lost weight. The vast majority lost over 100 lbs. They were successful using various diets and most of them had tried different types of diets. There was no one diet is the best in this book. The message is to find a diet you can live with and then go for it.
