But now you can lose weight without deprivation: Lucy Danziger, editor in chief of SELF magazine, and her team of nutrition experts have created the ultimate flexibl ...more

I really enjoyed the first 3/4 of this book. I found the talk of superfoods very informative. I liked learning about what foods can do for you and what to eat to get what.
The ideas for the meals are very simple and quick.
The exercise portion of the book - well didn't really do it for me. But I could easily incorporate a different regime.
I can't wait to start putting some of this into my daily food intake!

I'm making this entry eight years later so I don't remember how I'd rate this book. But I find it funny that I was one week pregnant with my fifth child when I finished it. wasn't a good time for losing weight, as it turns out. ...more

This has great information specifically with fruits and vegetables. Each chapter is filled with information on cooking tips, trim-down tips and examples of what eating the fruit/veggie can do for you. I purchased this on my Kindle, rather than a book form. I had to go back through and bookmark areas I wanted to save since I couldn't "dog tag". If you are about to read, start bookmarking in the beginning. This way it is easier to go back and get recipes, information, etc. ...more

I was intrigued by the idea of "super foods" and since I am trying to learn more about nutrition, I thought this seemed like a harmless way to wade into the subject. Very informative, not too technical. Made me crave blueberries, so I guess that's a good thing. ...more

Another diet book, but this one has a few good idea. The author shows how to incorporate superfoods. Some good recipes. I wish I had a dollar for every "diet" book I've read.

Looking forward to applying some of the suggestions to my own diet.

Not anything new here - watch what you eat and get some exercise. I am typically leary of lay people talking about "super-foods" and all the hype that's been going on with them for the last decade. Some different recipes to try. Same with the cookbook edition.
Framed up by editor of a women's magazine. No harm jumping on the band wagon and repacking information to sell a book - what an editor should be good at (!). And she's found ways to market 2 books on the same stuff - there's a cookbook edit

OK, so I didn't read everything in the book (I skipped the chapters on exercise), but the parts I did read made a lot of sense. By using the 30 "superfoods" listed, you can eat and lose weight. I liked that each superfood had its own few pages to explain the benefits and how it works to help with weight loss. I also like that you don't have to eat all 30 foods and there is no rigid rules to follow as far as what to eat and when, which makes this very flexible for people with active lifestyles. T ...more

Recommends it for: people who rarely eat fruits and vegetables but like the idea
Shelves: health
The title sounds like a typical gimmicky diet book, but it is more of an introduction to well-balanced eating. I used to stick to the same vegetables and rarely ate fruit, before I read this book. Lucy Danziger encourages people like me to begin trying new food by offering different ways to prepare them. Every recipe I have tried in this book has been stellar, from homemade kale chips to vegetable meatloaf (yes, still w/meat!) I have found them all to be delicious.
Even more useful, is the inform

Excellent tip: If it can live for longer than six months in a box, I probably don't want it in my body! How simple is that? Simple but true!! Lucy's tips and superfood info in this book are total no brainers and sooo true! True fact: I stopped eating most boxed foods & per packaged frozen meals in January 2012; I am now twenty pounds thinner after making several healthy changes. I love when she says if you can grow it, it's basically unlimited! Her recipes and ideas are fantastic. Oh! Have you s ...more

This is definitely for readers who are NOT diet people. Clearly written and a sensible and realistic approach to eating better, incorporating manageable exercise and losing weight, if that's one's goal. This book differentiates for people who like low maintenance approaches to making improvements in their approach to eating and offers options for those ready to take it to the next level. Good mix of research and common sense. ...more

This diet book lists 30 superfoods. But like most diet books, it basically comes down to making healthier choices and portion control. However, there are some really great recipes ideas. I tried and liked the following:
- Asian Peanut Pasta
- Edamame Noodle Salad with Lemon Dressing
- Sweet Potato and Lentils
- Edamame Hummus
- Banana Pop
- Sweet and Spicy Seeds

Common sense book about eating whole foods. I enjoyed this book because the author tells you the benefits of each food and then gives you recipes that either highlight the flavor or hide the flavor. Since reading this book, I created a list of the "Super Foods" that I use each week and check off the "Super Foods" that I eat- I try and get at least 25/30 every week (and even repeat some). ...more

The Drop 10 diet is based around 30 superfoods. I really liked it becuause these are things normal people would really eat! I was surprised to find that steak, chocolate (dark), and other desserts are on the menu. The smoothies are awsome. There is also a pretty intense workout included that is designed to give you real results.

Nothing new here. But I like the flexible meal plans and ideas. LIke the idea of roll-over calories. Less focus on macronutrient ratios which is making me crazy and not aiding in weight loss at all. This is closer to what I was doing before which kept my weight steady for 10 years.

tons of encouragement to eat the fruits and veggies I love. Also kick started my workouts again. Reminder to all you busy folks, you can get a good workout in about 30 minutes if you do strength/ cardio intervals.

There is little new in this book to anyone who has read books on Superfoods before although it is better written than most.
