This is one of the few infomercial crazes I've ever tried, and this book is also the only weight-loss programs that ever worked for me. I lost about 40 lbs on it the first time I tried the program, but had a series of life changes that led me back to emotional eating. I've gotten back on the essentials of the program since then, and have re-lost that weight, though I have more to go. The program has not been impossible to follow for an extended period of time, and I have learned to make my own decisions about my personal balance regarding the occasional consumption of high-fat food. The information is easy to understand, and accessible, and frankly, no miracles or magic is promised here. This is a *how to change your habits when you're finally ready to change* book. One of my favorite things about it is that it's not written for *fit* people. It has practical advice for those of us, like me, who are really out of shape. It is also kind, compassionate and positive, a nice change from the boot-camp mentality of some of the other writers on this subject. The one thing this book lacks is enough emphasis on strength training. It's there, but not to the degree I would like. Still, the only reason I have listed my copy is because I've basically memorized the program. Susan Powter is still around BTW - she has a MySpace page that's very interesting.

Excellent book. Pictures of Susan Powter before and after. Great thoughts and information on taking charge of your life and your eating habits.

Interesting, conversational book that not only tells her story, but also gives specific food and simple exercise examples with pictures. Maybe not life-changing, but entertaining and probably effective, if followed.

She tells it like it is and knows how we feel, she used to be 300lbs and lost over over 150lbs. She also makes great exercise videos that are so easy to follow you'll think they are doing nothing but you'll sweat like crazy!
She's really honest and knows how you feel.
