My name is Mollie, and for twelve years, I was obsessed with losing weight.

That's right: obsessed.

I woke up with it, I went to bed with it, I lived with it. I read, and read, and read-and I tried every method I could find to lose weight. Then, one day, I finally figured it out: a very, very fast weight loss method that kept my motivation high and my feelings of deprivation

I received this book though the Goodreads.com First Reads giveaway.

Diet works really well and there aren't a ton of guidelines, recipes or rules to follow. If you are already a low carber or if you are comfortable following a low carb diet, this will be pretty easy for you. It will also not be that controversial. If you still think that high carb, low fat is the answer, this book will definitely live up to its title only it will be VERY HARD. I like Mollie's writing. She is clear, concise and often humorous.

This book was great motivator to lose weight and it worked for me... Took a hiatus and need to get back to it. Lots of stress on the new job, so I'm trying to get back to it. But if you follow the diet as described then it does work. Lost about .8 pounds every other day!
