REVIEW: "The Best Life Diet" by Bob Greene

The Best Life Diet by Bob Greene

Much as I'm no longer into "dieting", I requested this book from the library because I read (in my book club flyer) that it supposedly talks of the "hunger scale", and "eating only when you're hungry". I was curious.

And, I hadn't intended to read this book. I'd only intended to skim it. But, it was an easy read, and there was lots of good & interesting information inside.

My problem with it is that it's still a diet -- he asks you to follow calorie-counts (but not necessarily to COUNT calories), and to cut out foods. But, otherwise, it's a decent program. He is only leading you to a healthier lifestyle, by choosing foods that don't have a lot of sugars, trans fats, or salts. Closer to "natural", I guess.

I saw this on Oprah. I'm always cautious when I watch stuff like this on Oprah, I'm not always in agreement with Oprah but who can argue with success. She looks great... but then if I had...

I am trying to eat "better" and "smarter" and I got some great ideas from this show.
