    Too full for junk food, February 11, 2005

    This review is from: Fill Up to Slim Down (Hardcover)
    If I were to recommend one diet book of the dozens I have read over the years, this would be it. The book helps break down the day into about 6 smallish to medium meals, which is in stark contrast to the 3 large meals most Americans eat while snacking on junk trying not to starve in-between.

    They lay out all of the healthy foods, including plenty of snack choices. While a lot of this is basic info for the experienced dieter, actually putting it to use gets plenty of results. For the first week or so of following the new meal style, I felt so full (a feeling I was unaccustomed to) that I was almost queasy. But after a week, your stomach adjusts and you’ll never have that empty gnawing hunger feeling again!

    I started working out two weeks before I started following these diet layouts, so after 6 weeks of exercise (4 weeks on the new meal plan) I have lost over 15 pounds and 6 inches off my waistline. I’m still a big girl, but I’ve already dropped 4 pants sizes! I have my favorite ‘fat jeans’ set aside for one of those annoying after pictures – where I’ll look like someone trying on MC Hammer pants.

    For an easier change to the plan – start small, adding snacks like apples and baby carrots with peanut butter and have a small salad right before dinner and there’s no way NOT to lose weight. The only disagreement I have is in the way this diet views fat, I allow for a bit more in my day (but limited to the days I work out).

    If anyone else out there is having success with this book, leave a review – reading them is not only fun but inspirational!

    This review is from: Fill Up to Slim Down (Hardcover)
    The premise of the book looked good – find the foods that give you the most bang for your buck calorie-wise. So the first couple of chapters discussed how 240 calories worth of potatoes are more filling than 240 calories of ice cream. Fine.

    That said, there are three major problems I have with this book:

    (a) They ought to leave it at that. Why make it into a diet? Not every book about food has to be a diet. Do they think they’re Atkins? I’m already on Weight Watchers, so I don’t need a diet program. A book about filling foods would be fine, thank you.

    (b) They lie. It says on the cover that you can eat the foods you love and still lose weight. Then, as you read the book, it tells you to avoid this, avoid that…. So apparently, you CAN’T have your cake and eat it, too.

    (c) Other than the list, the book just repeats the same old junk you’ve heard a zillion times – eat lots of fruits and vegetables, exercise, blah blah blah.

    Luckily I took this one out of the library, as it is certainly not worth the money.
