I debated giving this book four stars but really, as I feel it's 4.5 star worthy I rounded up (she is Canadian afterall).

My hesitation was that this book didn't seem to give any direct instruction so, after reading it, I'm left wondering what to add to my grocery list. That being said, Langer addressed this exemption of a list because they tend to include a bizarre list of ingredients that don't fit everyone's tastes or budgets.

I do applaud this Canadian author for her brutal honesty and tell it like it is approach, including vulgarity that really makes you take a step back but then dive in.

This isn't a diet book or a recipe book, the author doesn't tell her readers what to do and what not to do save for adding foods you like to the list. It is a self help book that guides the reader to ignore the hype of fad diets, to love food and to boost their confidence in all choices - especially high value ones.

Upon reading a couple of pages I knew a few friends this book could be for, to help them let go of their obsession, their guilt and welcome who they are and how they treat themselves. It's how I've been treating myself, too and, after this book, I'm over it. I will focus on increasing the value of myself and, in doing so, the sustenance I choose without the excuses of needing it in the house for others.

Highly recommend if you can stomach the brutal truths and I think you can!
