    This is a nutrition book written by a registered dietitian with a master's degree in nutritional science. She has been seen on The Biggest Loser and other TV shows. I had never seen her until I stumbled upon her book at the library.The book does not offer a "diet" to follow exactly, but rather a practical plan to ensure that you get enough healthy nutrients each day to lose weight and be healthy. There are a lot of pictures which show how many calories are in some typical foods~she calls this her "food autopsy" report. It's pretty eye-opening to realize that even a salad (with lots of add-ons) can equal 2 string cheeses, a slice of pizza, a donut and snack portion of potato chips. She gives healthier alternatives to save calories and increase the nutritional level.She believes in a high fiber breakfast and gives the science behind her thinking. She uses the "flip-it method" for lunches and dinners which means way more veggies, small amount of protein and little or no complex carb per meal. She does not count calories except for snacks.The book has some recipes (with pictures) and also pictures of her favorite products. She leans heavily toward organic products and explains why. At the end, she goes into more detail about the science behind the book, but not so complicated that the average reader can't understand it. She uses humor throughout the book which makes it an enjoyable read.I checked this book out from the library, but may consider purchasing it just for the practical hints, recipes and colorful pictures :)

    A copy of this book came with the Nutri Ninja that my oldest got from his father's family. I decided to browse the book, initially to see if it was the typical ¨if you buy my [insert supplement, powder, shake, etc. here], you will lose all the weight you want without trying" schtick that comes with these things. I was pleasantly surprised, there is very little touting of anything of the sort and just the briefest mentions of the Nutri Ninja. There is some excellent information in this book and while I'm not a fan of the name dropping hints (I could care less about some celebrity that needs to lose 7 pounds), it was well worth my reading time. It's solid, down-to-earth advice with just a little bit of hipster Whole Foods type of suggestions. LOVE her advice about selecting bread, that alone is worth reading. :)

    I thought this was an excellent book, especially for the person who wants a solid, middle of the road approach to fitness that doesn't go to extremes, is not restrictive, and is based on moderation. Her work was well backed by research, which I found very impressive. This is going to be recommended reading for all my fitness clients!

    Very easy read for a nutrition book. Her writing and approach are pretty down to earth. I liked that she gave actual brand names of items to but in your shopping cart. I also liked the inclusion of the science behind why you should eat the way she recommends. Very informative and still somehow fun to read. Now I just need to actually use the information.

    Beautiful photos. Easy read. I love the tips and easy methods to follow, or consider. A coworker walked past and loved the pictures too. She was proud of me looking into making healthier choices and potential weight loss.

    Written by Sheryl Crow's nutritionist, I thought this was going to be a quick read, a skimmer. It has lots of color photos on almost every page. A MUST for me to even read a cookbook. After reading "my trick of the trade gasolution" on page 22 I need to read it a little more thoroughly to see what other great tricks I might discover. And maybe I'll get a few new recipes.Breakfast is a challenge for me because I don't always have time to make old fashioned rolled oats and lately I can't find Cascadian Farms organic cheerios anywhere. She suggests making oatmeal ahead on a weekend, freezing and taking out the night before. Why didn't I ever think of this? So simple. Also love her tip about getting 10-15 of your required daily 30-35 g of fiber in the morning. She calls it your "fiber insurance plan" and says "fiberize." I'll be adding her "fiber sized grab and go breakfast options" for "girls on the go" to my breakfast choices (page 34). Need to go shopping for some Gnu Bars (never heard of these before). Also plan to get Wasa Crackers and some nori seaweed sheets to use for wraps. Page 76 has Grab n Go Snacks that look delicious. I already have little bags of nuts and love that I can have some cheese with them. She has a 145 calorie snack of strawberries and dark chocolate. Cheese and chocolate are what I miss the most.I may have to buy this book! My favorite after Eat to Live by Dr. Fuhrman.

    Thanks to Julie for liking someone's review of this book so I'd see it on my Goodreads feed and discover it. This book is EXACTLY what I've been looking for to bring a little direction to what I'm eating. Rachel Beller's a registered dietician, but doesn't want to bore and overwhelm you with all that science stuff (although, it's in there--at the end of the book--if you want to read it). She doesn't want you to count calories or throw out whole food groups or do anything insanely crazy. She just wants to give you a couple of simple ideas that can basically take the meals and healthy foods you're already eating, and help you use them to lose weight. And, seriously, her ideas were enough for me to go "OH. I get it now."I love that Beller gives you her ideas right up front, in simple, plain language, and then gives you tons of ideas for implementing them: recipes, which products on your store shelves are better for you than others, etc. She's done all the research--you can just pick which things sound good to you. No strict menus, nothing crazy. Just a way to eat that you could actually implement for the rest of your life. Basically, it's the book I've been looking for my whole adult life. 4 stars only because sometimes she's slightly over the top with the goofy tone. But the book is solid in its info. And it was a whopping $1.99 via Kindle yesterday. :)

    I got this book with my new Ninja Auto IQ system and was very excite to read this book. It was educational, simple, honest and simplified alot of the problems we have with food and diet. I found this book encouraging and exciting and gave a new perspective. Needless to say have learnt some new things that I plan to adhere to health and well being journey. Well worth the read if you are looking for inspiration to become a slimmer healthier you.

    So for a nutrition book it was simple, straight forward, funny and totally easy to relate to. I loved how the author compares serving sizes and calorie amounts to pieces of bread so that you have a universal comparative and a visual. Her method is easy and isn't overshadowed by alot of scientific data. Overall I learned alot and hope that by making some of her switched I will be the better for it!

    Okay, I read a lot of healthy eating books. I need lots of extra motivation to keep me from eating a diet of chocolate chips, cheese and bread. This one was written by a lady that advises Biggest Loser contestants and she had lots of good ideas and sound advice about eating vegetables. It makes a lot of sense and is good to read if you just want a good reminder and healthifying your life.

    Food for your lifeExcellent book for those of us who need assistance sorting through all the food myths and facts. The recipes are awesome and very doable. This isn't my latest diet but I will use this for my last and continue to eat this way. Feel amazing eating real food and not processed packs, diet drops, or all of the other get slim quick stuff on the market.

    Wanting to lose weight, and not having enough time to cook, I bought this book hoping to get some good ideas for what to eat when on the go. I was surprised to learn that the California Roll I eat for lunch is the carb equivalent of 4 slices of bread. Was a good book for giving ideas on how to modify foods so they don't sabotage weight-loss efforts.

    Yet another losing weight advisory...but this one is really simple to use. It says that the most important diet change is lots of fiber. Yes, the other stuff that we all know about avoiding caloric foods too. Some simple lowest cal recipes are included also. Maybe this is advice that I can adopt?

    Was hoping for some breakthrough info that I haven't heard of yet, and was a bit disappointed. The brand name dropping, although she doesn't like to do it, actually was the highlight of the book for me.

    overall i liked this book. it was easy to read and had a lot of good information. some of the recommendations are very restricting, and i could not live on, but did give good recommendations for more nutritious food choices.

    Hands down one of the best "eating healthy" books out there. I loved the bright pictures and the author's explanations - they were clear, succinct and easy-to-follow. I am looking forward to reading Ms. Beller's new book - Souping. I loved this book so much however that I bought it!

    This was a really straight forward and clear look at ways to make simple shifts in diet to be more calorie conscious. It had good illustrations and focused on central themes through out the book.
