it was ok

This book is fairly bland. It doesn't have tips and tricks or really any good way to help structure your eating. Save yourself the trouble of reading it by understanding these three points:

1. Weight loss comes down to calories in minus calories out. That's it. Period.

2. Try to get 50% of your calories from carbohydrates (preferably fruits and low-starch vegetables), 25% from (lean) protein and 25% from healthy fat.

3. Try to eat your carbohydrates around the time you will be exercising.

That's really all you need to know to be on the "runner's diet".
