Reviews - What do customers think about The Undiet: PAINLESS BABY STEPS TO PERMANENT WEIGHT LOSS (WITHOUT A DAY ON A DIET)?
Quick but resourceful May 25, 2003
This book can be read in under 30 minutes if you have the time and focus, but it's a constant reference manual, full of simple reminders of the little things we can do to make a big difference in our health. I've reviewed many books in the fitness and nutrition industry and this on is one of my favorites. Open it to any page and you'll find a small gem of info, like a mini-meditation to think about for the rest of the day, not unlike the I-Ching.
So simple even I can do it!.....read it. Oct 7, 2002
First the book is a quick, easy, fun read. I read it in about 2 hours one night. The content is easy and SO doable. The concept of baby steps and keeping it simple. In one night I changed what I drink and how I eat! I am too new to know the results yet...but I'll let you know.
Pick it up. worth the read. It makes sense and is so much less expensive than all the diet clubs and programs...and complicated diet books.
Serves up bite-sized portions with a nutritional punch Jul 5, 2002
This book contains everything you'll ever need to know about reaching your ideal weight & maintaining it while adding years to your life. It is serious stuff without taking itself too seriously...it is actually fun to read! The title says it, this is not a diet but a guide for easy lifestyle changes that pay off both short and long-term. Plus, implementing these choices can impact the health and well-being of the entire family with no one ever feeling deprived. As a former weight loss counselor, I have seen a lot of fads and trends in the industry, but this one is a keeper!
The Undiet Cuts to the Chase! Jun 21, 2002
#1 the Undiet wastes no words, isn't that one of the things we learn about writing, "Let every word tell"? I read the whole thing in 25 minutes! For once I didn't have to wade through chapters and chapters of complex material to find out what the book was trying to say. #2 it is FUN, hard to believe, but nevertheless true. I LAUGHED reading about weight-loss nutrition and THIS time it wasn't because the ideas were ludicrous, this woman is just plain FUNNY. #3 IT WORKS, I had a total of 60 lbs to lose and lost 20 of them in the first 2 months! #4 the author is REAL, I felt as though I went out to lunch with her and she just TALKED to me. She clearly understands we are mere mortals and gives us easy to follow principles. Allowing us to go at our own pace proved she doesn't look down on those of us who know we need to lose weight. It was EMPOWERING choosing which baby step to take on first, and I KNEW I could do JUST ONE. #5 & finally, never again will I feel guilty about leaving food on my plate, it turns out this woman has a Masters degree from Tufts Univ. in Nutrition AND World Hunger, she KNOWS my leftovers won't feed the hungry in Third World countries, so I might as well not become obese! I really ENJOYED this book, and although a pretty well informed, healthy person I LEARNED a LOT! When someone mentions they want to lose weight, I don't hesitate, life is too short, I say "Do not pass go, do not collect $200, just get the Undiet, PERIOD!"
