I've read several different "diet" books, and this one is by far the best. The plan outlined is based on biology, and I thought the book does a great job explaining what to do, and also WHY it helps. Giving me a biological reason not to eat certain foods, and to eat particular foods, really helps get me motivated. The biological explanations are not too complex, and the illustrations and humor are helpful too.

Once I got past the cartoons and the annoying pop culture similes, the information found in this book is incredibly helpful. It really explains how your body works and how it uses (or doesn't) different types of food. I understand my body and eating (and exercising) so much more now. I've been on the YOU diet for three days and have already lost 3 pounds and 1/2 inch on my waist. The best part is that this "diet" is something that I know I can keep up with - it's not about deprivation but about eating smart. And I can do that!

There is some very intersting information in this book, especially stressing the need to control waist measurement, not weight. There is humor throughout the book and even the biological sections were easy to understand. Even if you do not follow the plan exactly, it will help you to live a healthier life

This is a good book even if you are not on a "diet". It is about how everyone can eat in a better way. Explains the need for whole grains, what is a trans fat? etc.
I recommend it. SOme funny parts also.

Very informative in helping me to understand what is going on inside our bodies.

This book follows conventional wisdom & standard American diet (SAD). As I read and study more, I question whether the SAD is really the diet (read "what we should eat") that we should be following. I'm convinced more & more that we need to eat what our ancestors ate in order to turn ourselves back to "fatburners" instead of the SAD "carb burners" that we are. After all, how can we burn fat if we fuel with carbs?
