Should you buy the book? (Do I recommend buying this book?)
My answer depends on what you are wanting to know.
If you just want to know what to do without a whole lot of theory behind the diet, then I suggest going to one of the links to the side (especially the CalorieLab link). You can read and get a feel for what you need to do to live this diet.
But, if you're like me, then you want to know a little more theory behind it to really understand how it works and to base your decisions off of principles rather than a two-step recipie. The book gives you the whole story right from the author himself. He explains the theory in multiple ways. He also goes into other subjects related to the diet such as other ways to achieve the same results.
The book is also a one-stop resource for early success stories from the early-adopter bloggers. Many pages are devoted to what bloggers had to say about this diet.
He also has a chapter devoted to what our society and businesses can do to encourage this diet. He referenced a couple of studies about how our society has become obese. It was a very interesting chapter.
And lastly, his appendix about the science behind the diet was very informative.
Tomorrow is my first of two official weigh-ins this week. I didn't eat too healthily this week. I bought some ice cream and root beer. I only had two root beer floats this weekend. Plus, we made brownies for mother's day. But other than that, I didn't eat a whole lot. I find that I don't eat breakfast or lunch on the weekends. I just have small snacks every two hours or so. Then I end up eating a decent dinner. But today, I had my SW this morning and I'm about to have some ELOO in a few minutes.
Until tomorrow ...
