Some of the recipes look interesting, but the remainder of the content was light-weight (no pun intended) and nothing I haven't read before. Could use another edit - there were several errors in the Kindle version. ...more

I’m not usually a great fan of diet books, but I can’t ignore my stubborn belly anymore. So, I picked up this book in spite of myself.
