I saw this book in the internet because I have subscribed in Prevention's e-newsletter and this was part of the offer. I didn't purchase the book online because I didn't want to pay extra for the shipping charge. I am not sure how much the book was offered through the internet promo but while visiting Borders in one of the malls in San Diego (I can't remember the name but it's near the Bonita Heights, some Plaza Mall I guess...), I found this book being offered with %30 off the price. Original price was 25.95 so I got it for $18 something.
I am still reading the book but have heard positive feedbacks from other readers. I have not started with the plan yet as I need to finish the book. I will definitely give this a try since my girth is starting to get wider than the Pacific Ocean and being small, I need to get my BMI fixed!
The book won't take long to finish as it has big texts and supplied notes area at the end pages where you can jot down your progress. It is a hardbound book with a cover slip.
The diet offers followers to have a healthy portions of the MUFAs or mono-unsaturated fatty acids which are the good fats out body needs. One can take DARK chocolates, avocados, almonds and other food which provide MUFA. I think I can live with that knowing I can still have a sweet treat as part of the diet plan.
I am over with fad diets and pills that don't work. I would give this a try and will let you know.
So, I am not giving this book a rating yet as I need to see how it will work for me. Good luck to me!!!
