This book pushes a diet that is supposed to make your skin look good and all that, but it is good for losing weight and generally feeling better too. . My wife has been following the diet and I observed that the items in the diet looked pretty tasty- not like many other diets - and the portions were big enough to fill a person up adequately. So I started eating the stuff too. Yup, I am losing weight and she is looking sexier. Try it.
