Synopsis: Why Your Diet Is Making You Fat and What to Do About It: 10 Simple Rules to Help You Stop Dieting, Start Eating, and Lose the Weight for Good
My review: It took a few goes to be able to read this as the ARC from netgalley does not transfer to kindle. It’s an absolute mess when it happens and judging by the reviews a few people have fallen foul of it. However it did let me download to Adobe and I managed to read from there.
It’s an okay book. The 10 rules are simple and things that make complete sense. However if like me, they make perfect sense and yet you never use them and so are overweight and having to read these types of books!
I found one little quote fascinating in that half of the female clients Brooke has are ex-Weight Watchers members. I’ve done WW many times and it’s counterpart Slimming World and yup it gets very annoying counting and weighing that I give up. None of them ever help me get to heart of the reason for being overweight. And this doesn’t either but then she’s not claiming to be a psychologist.
A bit of a niggle – I was allowed to download this living in the UK but the food sections are aimed at those in the US. Supplements that are used we don’t have and I can’t really find the alternative. That’s not fair on the author but the publishers should really make it clearer as it becomes half a book.
What is there that I can use looks good, the rules as I say are simple to follow and it makes for a nice kick up the bum to get you started on a healthier lifestyle.
