This book gives a great overview of everything a woman needs to know - nutrition, health (including various disease information), fitness and more! It's a great quick reference book and is very easy to read and get the basics about so many important issues. It even includes a plan to get you going to losing weight and becoming more healthy! I have had problems with food in my life and this book always inspires me to achieve my goals. I can't wait to get it and be able to pick it up each time I'm having a weak moment.

This book helped me see the ways to help myself adjust and live through it without going insane. I have a few more years to put the whole book into theory but the weight issues are there and fading thanks to this book.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who is in their 30's and is a woman. It will make all the difference in the world!

If you are just beginning a weight-loss and fitness program, or would like to, but still don't have the confidence and courage, this is a good book to begin with. There are numerous inspiring stories--from real women, who demonstrate that goals CAN be met if one is consistent, determined, and flexible. There are good introductions to various forms of exercise, which would help someone who isn't quite sure where or how to begin, what exercise would suit best. There are many many tips on how to incorporate more activity into one's daily routines, in addition to regular exercise. My favorite: doing squats or calf raises while doing the dishes or cutting vegetables.
My one disappointment was that there was not more assistance in the actual planning of meals or menus (in addition to a somewhat small list of recipes). However, this deficiency could be supplemented with an additional book or two--including a more thorough cookbook--but one must be prepared to do some serious searching to avoid fads or nutritionally unsound eating plans.
I would recommend this book to the woman who is just beginning, or wants to begin, a new, more healthful lifestyle, a combination of better eating habits and more physical activity. This book is a good, encouraging accessory to a more healthful life.
Not that it is not all important but sometimes you may just need more info on a particular part of your plan. Each chapter in the table of contents has a sentence or two telling you exactly what you will find there. The sections are broken down with subtitles to add to that ease. They couldn't make it easier.
I found this book very inspirational, as well as helpful. It is a book to guide you and get you on track, most important of all it will help you to stay there. Kelsana 12/10/01
