Life Changing Feb 14, 2007
Dr. Melina Jampolis provides great scientific data on how the body works and what the body needs. As a former competitive athlete, I had always been in tune with what my body needed but not necessarily when it needed it. She has helped me tremendously in understanding my body and how to fuel it correctly. Her philosophy not only works but it is very practical for the busy lives we all lead. I would highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to lose weight the right way, live a more healthy lifestyle, and create good habits for living a healthy and happy life.
Makes sense -- no gimmicks -- just facts Feb 13, 2007
The information contained in this book is based on common sense and common science. I don't have to track points or keep my body in ketosis; I don't have to combine certain foods or eliminate my glass of Cabernet. I can have a piece of chocolate and not feel like I was "cheating." The book just outlines a sensible way to eat and puts food in the proper perspective. I even tried one of the recipes -- easy chili - quick and tasty!
I especially appreciated the case studies - they were stories of real people with real challenges. It was inspiring the way Dr. Melina worked with her patients to discover the most effective plan for each one. They lost weight slowly and consistently. I used to feel pretty depressed when I'd lose only a half a pound a week, but after reading these stories, I realize that it's the way to remain healthy while losing weight, and ultimately to keep the excess weight off long-term. That alone was worth the price of the book - I'm more patient with my weight loss journey and more relaxed about when I'll reach my weight-loss goal. It will come.
Easy to follow diet Feb 11, 2007
I have tried many, many diets, and this one is perhaps the most straightforward and easy to follow. The basic principles are similar to WW, but this one gives you a few other guiding principles, which if you incorporate them into your life, will make a HUGE difference in how you look and feel. I have seen her show on FIT TV, and I happened to have seen her recently on a segment of Regis & Kelly. She really seems to know what she is talking about...
No Time to Lose Diet is Terrific! Jan 12, 2007
I love this book! It is not going on my bookshelf--it is staying on my kitchen counter. Reading it, I felt that at last, I could succeed in taking off weight for good. After all, Dr. Jampolis's other patients did and their problems were exactly the same as mine. She shares their stories and offers practical solutions. She showed me how I could lose weight even when I was travelling, or eating out, or celebrating the holidays. In her down-to-earth style, she even outlined what to order at fast food restaurants. And finally, she demystified the glycemic index. She is practical, easy to read and her advice is coming from a real doctor who is also a certified nutritionist. All this--and delicious recipes, too! Five stars, indeed!
