"This is possibly the best book on weight loss ever written."
Taste for Life 9/1/15
For those who are tired of quick-fix diets, the approach to weight control outlined in this book may be a welcome relief. There are no strict rules about what and how much you can eat. Instead you'll find a psychological and commonsense approach to losing weight and sustaining that loss long-term. Information on how to analyze your habits and follow a week-by-week plan to make gradual and lasting changes is offered.”

Dr. Markey has written a easy to understand receipe on how to live a healthy life. I have tried too many fad diets that don't work.
This book was a great read and couldn't put it down.
The book itself is a realistic take on health and weight management that advocates for small lifestyle changes that you can adopt for life. It doesn't suggest that you starve or cut out all the food you love. In fact, it suggests that indulging now and then is a good way to stay on track. I plan to download the companion app "SmartenFit" so that I can monitor my exercise and what I eat better and get suggestions from their healthy options database. I always feel like I run out of healthy ideas and end up eating whatever is in the pantry. The biggest message that I got from the book was that it is important to be aware of our numbers (weight, BMI, etc.) and monitor our food and exercise habits, but not to the point of becoming obsessed because that can backfire in a big way. I have never been the type who was able to count every single calorie that I eat in a day or wear a pedometer to count my steps. But I can definitely benefit from monitoring what I eat in a general way and tracking how much exercise I am getting on a weekly basis. Hopefully the app will pick up where the book left off and allow me to do that.
