This is a great book. I'm currently dieting and exercising and this book keeps me motivated by giving me tips and research that not only makes me think but makes me take a second look at how im taking care of myself. The links, resources, and notable persons named keeps me sure of what im reading and helps me stay on track. I'm now back to healthy way and staying with it thanks to tips and guides from this book. I'd recommend it to anyone, not to people just losing weight or getting healthy!
